My partner and I decided to stay here for our very first clothing optional resort experience. We had tickets to go see the tennis matches in Indian Wells and chose to stay at what looked to be a very relaxing and calm environment. It turned out to be such a lovely stay and a welcome way to rest and rejuvenate....

Thanks for the taking the time to review and pointing out some of the work we have been doing! Yes we have lowered the front patio walls so now the view of the courtyard and pool areas are even better. We have been getting a lot of compliments on it, and are so glad you like!

Just home a few days ago after four nights at Escape. My second stay there - we liked it so much last year that I booked it again for this year and have plans for at least one return this same year. I had the same room as last year, #12. It's tucked into an inner corner of the hotel,...

Thank you for your review and all of the great comments! Our pool and especially the hot tub are larger than most resorts of our size... so there is plenty of room to enjoy!

I found this accommodation to be one of the cleanest, friendliest places I've ever stayed. I know it's clean because I walked on the floors barefoot, something I'd never do at home. The pool was warm, the breakfast an upscale continental, the staff was friendly and helpful. If I ever return to Palm Springs, I'll stay here for sure.
