When we first booked we didn't know what to expect since it was so small, but it turned out to be an incredible stay! Edgar at the front desk gave great service and was incredibly helpful. We also met Daniel, who was wonderful. There are 9 rooms surrounding a beautiful salt water pool. It's very private, which we loved. You...

I stayed at the Avance for only one night May 27, 2016. What a mistake should have stayed there a week. The property is quaint and private. The hotel has put a great deal in making this a fabulous property. I was travelling solo and the room I had like all were right at the pool. I had a great...

A lovely small hotel with a lovely pool. Our room was very comfortable with a separate kitchen area. If you want to eat outside, there's a lovely shady table and chairs right outside the room. The AC was perfect at 117% degrees outside. We had a coffee station outside right near our room and a continental breakfast in the morning....

We couldn't have asked for anything more! Staff very nice and Kuerig coffee unit on deck next to our room. Pool clean and warm. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Nice microwave, TV, ice was available and plentiful, refrigerator was stocked with water, and cupboards were well stocked with dishes and glasses.

I was in room 7, a suite. Spacious little suite. Loved the patio. Great water pressure in shower. Good toiletries. Could have used a few other amenities (especially since they charge a "resort fee") like coffee in the rooms with cups, laundry bags, water, etc. the pool was so so nice. Excellent cozy seating around this beautifully landscaped property. Really...

It is entirely their right to do what they want with the hotel, but what I find reprehensible of the new owners is that they're happily taking the bookings they inherited and your money on arrival BEFORE telling you it is no longer a gay resort. No communication at all. A change in ownership hasn't been good either in terms...

Arrived at hotel to find it is under new ownership and has new name "Avance". Was a little shocked to find female staff working at clothing optional gay resort! Although staff were great, not the experience we had booked and should have informed guests BEFORE arrival of changes. More changes to come, as understanding is resort will no longer be...

We have stayed here twice before. The front of house owner Michael is very friendly and approachable and made another visit here for us very enjoyable. We had booked room 1 for our 5 night stay. It is well appointed and receives the late afternoon sun. If you wish morning sun try room 7 on the opposite side of the...

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...
