My partner and I just returned fro Palm Springs and stayed at La Dolce Vita. The staff was amazing and made us fee so at home. Ken, the owner, made sure he greeted us everyday and spent some time chatting, whether it was at breakfast or by the pool. We also had the opportunity to visit the spa. Jonathan is...

There are many resorts for men in the Palm Springs area. Having stayed at quite a few of them over the years, I looked forward to sampling “The Sweet Life” at La Dolce Vita Resort and Spa. Arriving late (the instructions for after-hours entry worked like a charm), it wasn’t until the following day that I began to realize what...

What a fantastic, friendly, laid back guest house! Attentive staff - Ken, Sergio and others were great. Adam was an exceptional standout! I highly recommend La Dolce Vita, a must when in Palm Springs.

Most clothing optional resorts daily in one important way for me, maintaining a relaxed atmosphere. This place is exactly the right balance of relaxation and social, a great PS eclectic style without being too fussy.

My husband and I recently stayed at this resort in Palm Springs and we were thoroughly satisfied. The staff treats you like family and goes above and beyond to cater to your needs. The property is clean, well maintained, and comfortable. We will be staying here again and telling all our friends to visit.

My stay at La Dolce Vita a few weeks ago was super!! The staff were so friendly (just like family) and attentive to all needs from driving directions to extra towels - simply the best.

We've stayed at La Dolce Vita many times over the years, but I never think to post a review, even though we always leave there after a weekend knowing we will return! It's our home away from home in Palm Springs-- friendly, relaxed, and always fun. Ken and Tim are gracious hosts, and I've always found the guys who stay...

La Dolce Vita is a diamond in paradise. The location was perfect, and the views from the property were unbelievable. Mountains everywhere, outlined by the palm trees and greenery on the resort. Two wonderful pools, two hot tubs, friendly and attentive staff, and clean, comfortable room accommodations. Ken and Tim were wonderful hosts. We were beyond impressed and will be...
