Took my daughter on a long weekend for her 30th birthday. Our bungalow was enormous and immaculate. Our stay was relaxing. The staff and the guests were exceptionally friendly. I definitely plan to return!

Everything at A Place in the Sun was fine - the room was comfortable, if very small, and had all the amenities we needed, including free WIFI, which we appreciated. We did find the air-con quite fierce (due to the size of the room), and the fan a little noisy, but this was not a huge problem. The private courtyard...

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are sorry that your experience wasn't everything you had hoped it would be. I would like to take a moment to respond to a few of your comments. You were in our smallest unit, which does have a private walled patio, but it is all concrete, which makes it...

We were back once again to our favorite place to stay in the desert......APITS!! We can't seem to get enough of this lovely hotel!!

I have been going to APITS for about 8 years whenever I have 2 consecutive days off in a row (work 6 days a week) - usually about twice a year. I bring my 2 rescue dogs (50 lbs.) who are well behaved and they love hanging out in the room and the private patios are perfect. Awesome customer service....

Great service and attention to detail, from making the reservation over the phone to instructions for after-hours arrivals to checking out! The property sits on one acre of land with units surrounding the central pool and courtyard. The property was originally built for the cast and crew of the 1951 movie, "A Place in the Sun", and has since been...

We have visited APITS several times now over the past few years. We come here for relaxation first and foremost. The property is small but immaculately maintained. I have never stayed anywhere so consistently clean! The owners really go out of their way to make the experience comfortable for their guests. It's not big and modern, with fancy sheets or...

We go every year to this beautiful place. It is a very lovely place to stay. I call it, my paradise in Palm Springs. Both bungalows and outside around the pool area kept very clean. We usually take one bedroom bangalow, which has a great kitchen and a bedroom separate from living room. There is a barbecue by the pool,...

I had to go to Palm Springs for the film fest, and found A Place In The Sun through the film fest's website. I was pleasantly surprised by the space...felt like I had traveled back into the good ol' days of the 1960s. The bungalows were all clean and quiet, with private patios in the back of each one.
