Uninspired but polite reception staff. Good value and retro feel. Perfect if you like tiki and “vintage” Palm Springs. Nice pool area and beautiful greenery around. Plenty of palm trees and mountain vistas make for pleasant views and atmosphere.

Had a good stay here and everything went well. Only thing i was disappointed in was it is abit different to other hotels as in you are not allowed any food or drinks what so ever in your room, unless you are buying from the bar. Another thing that bothered me a little was that there is no public bathroom...

Wanted a quiet two days to just relax by the pool and this is the reason we picked this hotel. They have Hawaiian music playing outside which I enjoyed. The pool was not crowded and family orientated. They have many different styles of floats that they let you use. They have a bar but it does not open till 2:00...

My sister and I stayed here for 10 days during Modernism Week. Our room was very spacious and clean. Housekeeping was a bit hit and miss - some days no towels and other plenty of towels. There are coffee making facilities in the room but coffee sachets weren't always replaced. Im a tea drinker and there were no tea making...

Just stayed at the Caliente Tropics for 4 nights. This is our second time here and can honestly say it is a great hotel. The pool is a fantastic size compared to others in the area and is clean. The staff were always friendly and helpful when we did speak to them. The hotel has had some updating since we...

Had a nice 3-night stay at this tiki themed hotel in March. Room was very simple on the ground floor, just across the parking lot from the pool and hot tub area which we enjoyed. The pool area was landscaped very nicely with soft Hawaiian themed music playing most of the time. No shortage of lounge chairs while we were...
