Por q tiene una excelente atención

It Keeps Getting Better Here... I think I've stayed at Caliente Tropics around a dozen times over the past six or so years, and I've seen it undergo quite a few transformations during that period. There's great (and greatly weird) history here, including Tiki culture lore and Rat Pack presence (Frank Sinatra even had a secret wine cellar here when it was called The Tropics). The large pool has been featured in a few films. The location, tucked away in south Palm Springs off E. Palm Canyon Drive, is fantastic and peaceful and quiet. You get some great views of the mountains here. The rooms are large and spacious, and the beds and pillows are incredibly comfortable. It's also a pet-friendly hotel, and room rates are reasonable (though they've certainly spiked in the time I've been coming here; that's due mostly to Palm Springs' resurgence in tourism in recent years). I would recommend dealing directly with Ressa up front if you can. She's sweet, professional, attentive, talented, and hard-working. The whole staff is great, really, but she's my personal favorite. Oh, and definitely check out The Reef. Tiki aficionado Rory O'Connor took over the bar area here recently, and did a wonderful job turning it into a true Tiki revitalization hot spot. The food here is also very good, and you can bring food and drinks from The Reef back to your roof (you cannot charge it to your room, however, as they are separate business entities). They also sell some fantastic hand-carved Tiki drink glasses here, and their drinks are fairly priced and fairly stiff. Great times await you here. Many families seem to enjoy staying here, and I've always enjoyed it as a solo traveler. It's my go-to crash spot and hideaway in the Palm Springs oasis hideaway. That may never change.

Nice, affordable, comfortable. For a Winter stay, it was nice. I imagine it would be a great experience for a Summer experience. Would recommend.

Loved it. Tiki vibe was fun. Staff were great. Property and rooms were clean. Best part was the awesome tiki bar and pool area. All for a reasonable value. Definitely going back in the summer for some pool side fun.

LAST MINUTE STAY Last week I stayed at Caliente Tropic Resorts located in Palm Springs. Customer service was great. I was greeted by a young man name Jonathan. I myself work in a place where customer service is a priority and he sure exceeded my expectations, not to mention the hotel itself. A lovely large room with a comfortable bed. Over all a great place to stay in a great location.

Great vibes and Hawaiian feels! What an awesome place to stay at. Me and my wife had an amazing stay at the Caliente Tropics, we got some wonderful advice from Reesa on some of the coolest spots in Palm Springs. If you're looking for a chill place with an friendly and courteous staff hit up the Caliente Tropics!

This is a hard one. I've never stayed here outside of the Fall Roy Snyder event. That said, I've spent a lot of time here under good conditions. The rooms are idiosyncratic to say the least. I've always stayed in room 234. It's an upstairs suite with the living room in front and bedroom separate in back. The room is clean, has everything I need. The fridge is nice, and we use the large sink and counter area. I have nothing bad to say about the layout. The room is dark. The decor is dark, and the lights just don't really light the place up. I like having carpet over the concrete floors. I love the history of the place, and what the owners are trying to do. However, at the end of the day, I'd likely not stay here as my first choice. So, I've not had a bad experience. The facility has a nice layout. There is a decent restaurant, and decent bar. That doesn't happen much to a place at this level. That gets it a good rating. However, it's still not the place I'd chose to stay, and I don't have a good reason why. That's why I assume some of the reviews are divided.

It's an older place, but clean and we'll maintained. Good size room. Nice pool area.

4on Expedia,Jan 05, 2018


Good Value Pros: Comfy mattress and pillows, nicely heated pool (went swimming in Jan!), noon check-out (nice not to feel rushed), attractive grounds, pool open late. Cons: We could have used and microwave in our room and warmer bedding. Also, the walls of our room were noticeably scuffed up here and there. My third stay here. It's not perfect, but pretty darn good for the price! I'll be back.

Really Great Service!!!! Our service at Caliente Tropics was great. Jonathan who was the front desk person was really helpful and quick at checking us into our hotel room, along with giving us information on how to get around the area. We really enjoyed the atmsphere and the night was beautiful. We also went to the Evzin Restaurant that Jonathan recommended and lets just say that we were really pleased on going there. We loved the food and the great ambiance. We will highly recommend this place to our friends. We can't wait to come back again. The rooms ,beds and everything about our stay was so comfortable. Thank you so much for everything.

Tiki Tiki Tiki Pros: The Tiki! the classic hotel/motel vibe, Good location, The Reef Tiki Bar, simple/comfortable rooms, location, nice big pool Cons: Microwaves in the rooms Location: Located near restaurants, shops and downtown but far enough away from the crowds. This place is the spot if you want a classic Palm Springs Tiki experience. Tiki themed hotel and they have the best tiki bar in town: The Reef! Simple, comfortable rooms and a quiet stay...
