Walkable to downtown Palm Springs. Wonderful pool and excellent room.

Enjoyed every minute we were at the resort. Staff was awesome, Beautiful property, Cozy room.

Staff made us feel as if we were guests in their homes. Very beautiful grounds and breakfast and lunch included.

The Santiago is a boutique men’s “swimsuit optional” hotel located in the quiet neighborhood of East San Lorenzo in Palm Springs, CA ... just minutes away from downtown. Men of all shapes, sizes and ages (18 years and older) can and will feel comfortable enjoying the warm desert sun and refreshing waters of the resort’s large swimming pool and 6+person soothing spa in a swim suit optional setting. I know firsthand, because I did!! I will come back again and again in the future. Why you ask?? Because, in the wintertime I live just five blocks away from the Santiago Resort!! Also for your information, I am a “vertically challenged,” “pear shaped” man of that certain age, who stopped counting his birthdays at “39.” So, if I can feel comfortable at a “swim suit optional” resort … any man can!! Lastly, any resort could have the best facilities, grounds, guest services, amenities, etc., but without a guest centered, quality focused, pro-active staff … it will ultimately come up short in meeting “guest experience” expectations … period. In my opinion, “Team Santiago” … Kent, Grant, Bob, Dave, Nigel, Rick, Oscar and Zack … are all at the top of their game in the men’s “swim suit optional” resort business!! So … it goes for the Santiago Resort in Palm Springs, California, too!!!
