Destination Birthday Party

richardlU4905RK (Ashland, Oregon) on Jan 16, 2023

Our family wanted a fun place to celebrate a destination birthday party, and MRPS was chosen. We were not disappointed. The resort was clean, well-staffed, and fun. We enjoyed a private room party which was set up with a bar and buffet ... excellent service by a happy and engaged staff. We were allowed to bring our own decorations, DJ, and party favors (some resorts require you to buy their extras). There was plenty of parking close in to the rooms. They allowed us to bring our pet (a VERY important member of the family).

Tropical Paradise in California

Barbie E on Jan 13, 2023

The scenery and atmosphere is fabulous! It is almost everything you would expect from a resort in the tropics. I loved the firepits, hot spa, beautiful pools and lush palm trees. The room was amazing and comfortable. The soaking tub was a dream. I’m a tall and bigger person and I didn’t have to fill the tub to be immersed in water. Our waitress María at the buffet was friendly and handed me a cup of coffee knowing just what I needed. My only wish is that they would of had the bar open past 5 pm at the pool and that there was a way to get drinks and food while you are at the pool after 5 pm. It seemed ironic that the bar name is 5 0’Clock somewhere and after 5 0’Clock the bar was no where to be found. When it was open and you could order Tacos at the bar, OMG, they were the best dang tacos of my life!! I don’t remember the gentleman’s name at the Lobby reception but if you want your photo taken, he is a genius at taking photos. Overall I gave the 5 Stars because the staff is amazing and the atmosphere perfect.

Plus and minus for this hotel

Barbara P (Port Hueneme, California) on Jan 09, 2023

Nice restoration of the old Riveria resort - that I still miss. Some of the positives are - king size beds, great deep bathtubs, nice pool area, easy parking, clean, quick check in and out. Negatives - and I believe this is true for most hotels in Palm Springs, $40/day resort fee. Way too much for what you get. Spa didn't have any openings for the 3 days I was there. Good food but way too pricey. Gift shop didn't have much. No elevators for us oldies.

They need to add more staff to Joe Merchants. It will be busy and only one person working the shop. Other than that the stay was nice. I really enjoyed the pool. People at the front desk were really friendly and welcome.
