    Great location, comfortable beds and a really nice pool. Having the tiki bar onsite is a nice bonus. Since it's a mile from downtown, you're close to all the fun, but it's nice and quiet. We enjoyed our stay and will probably stay here again.

    The only real downside is that there are no blackout curtains in the room, so it got really bright in there really early. I would ask for a west-facing room next time.

About

Overview

The Caliente Tropics Resort is decorated in Polynesian decor with tiki torch, coconut carving, and tiki statues, and coupled with a retro 1960s style. Some travelers love the dated, retro look but others want a revamp. Budget travelers looking for a convenient location, clean room, and a lovely pool will find all they need at Caliente Tropics Resort.

Set on the main drag of Palm Springs, Caliente Tropics Resort is less than 10 minutes from popular downtown restaurants, bars, galleries, and shopping. There are a few restaurants within walking distance but popular regional destinations like Joshua Tree National park and Coachella are a 45-minute drive.

The property features a beautiful outdoor pool, the largest in the area, with spectacular mountain views. The adjacent courtyard has a sunny lawn with barbecue grills and cabanas. Guests will also find access to two outdoor shuffleboard courts and a ping-pong table under a covered pavilion. A fitness center is on-site, as well as Evzin which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in tiki-setting.

The 90 rooms at the budget hotel have been renovated but still feature a standard layout. There are a variety of options for guests to choose from, but all rooms feature convenient necessities such as free Wi-Fi, coffeemakers, and min-fridges.

Caliente Tropics is the perfect outpost to explore the booming Palm Springs area. At the hotel, guests can save money while enjoying the area’s attractions, from top-rated golf courses and vibrant festivals to nature tours, museums, and active nightlife.
