A group of us went for the weekend to Palm Springs and stayed at the Desert Eclipse. Its a very intimate resort with all the rooms facing the center courtyard that has beautiful central pool and jacuzzi surrounded by beautiful landscaping. The pool was like bath water. The rooms are very spacious and the beds are so comfortable. The owner...

I've stayed here more than a handful of times through the years and think it's great. The owners keep the place spotless, the rooms are well appointed, and most have kitchens. It's very quiet during the week, so if you're looking for a place to stay in Palm Springs to chill, this would be a good spot. Also, they have...

This was our second visit to the clothing optional Desert Eclipse Resort (see earlier report!) - All being well we hope to return spring 2016! The quiet atmosphere here provides a totally relaxing experience. We had reserved a King room. On arrival we were upgraded at no additional charge to a King room with a back patio, this gave us...

Having stayed in several other resorts, we will never stray from Desert Eclipse... The rooms are immaculate, the guests friendly, and the salt water pool seals the deal. Michael, the owner, is a gracious host. He greets us every day with a smile, and often brings his wonderful dog Benjamin along to meet the guests. Make sure to call Michael...

My husband and I found the Desert Eclipse to be the perfect place for us to spend a fun weekend with our little dog. From check-in to check-out, everything not only met, but exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the 1 bedroom king, room 2B. Large TV and sitting area, a full kitchen, and a separate bedroom with a comfy...

We found the atmosphere calming and relaxing. The Desert Eclipse is well situated a few blocks from down-town and a 5 minute walk from a grocery store – Ralph's....

I needed a vacation and I wanted a quiet, relaxing place to unwind and to focus on finishing up a school project. I chose the Desert Eclipse Resort for its location and atmosphere. I had the best time at the resort and would highly recommend staying here. The room interior is tastefully decorated and the bed was comfortable and huge!...

My husband and I spent a couple of nights back in May at The Desert Eclipse Resort and we have nothing but positive things to say about our stay there! It's a dog friendly, clean, and private. On our second night there we learned that we were the only people checked in at the resort. We had the entire place...

Me and my BF stayed over the last weekend in May. The weather was about 100-103 each day. The pool was so wonderful to lay naked in all day. There were a few other guests that we chatted with and the owners were very friendly and did whatever to make us feel comfortable. They have a grill which we used...

This was our first trip to Palm Springs and our first trip to Desert Eclipse. We already can't wait to go back. Location: Desert Eclipse is perfectly situated just blocks from downtown and the grocery store. So if you want to be able to walk places, as we did, this place fits the bill. Grounds: The grounds are beautiful and...
