Located in Desert Hot Springs, Aqua Soleil Hotel & Mineral Water Spa is surrounded by natural beauty. Take in views of the San Jacinto Mountains to the south and the San Bernardino Mountains to the northwest. 

Recently remodeled guest rooms are modern and clean with brightly painted walls and crisp white bedding. Soleil suites (for adults only) offer much more space with separate living areas and private hot mineral water jetted pools, great for romantic getaways.

Relax in one of property's three hot mineral water pools. The water is taken from the surrounding area's hot springs and is said to have curative powers. For more pampering, get a massage or facial at the hotel's spa (inquire at the front desk about available treatments). Get in a workout at the nearby World Gym, which is free for guests.

A large outdoor courtyard has seating around a fire pit, perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine or cup of coffee. For restaurant options, Desert Hot Springs is just a five-minute drive with plenty of choices.

Drive just 45 minutes to Joshua Tree National Park to hike amid the desert landscape and take in a multitude of bright stars in the dark night sky. Or head into downtown Palm Springs, just a 15-minute drive, for restaurants, bars, shops, galleries and more.

Buyer beware. This is an upgraded motel. This is not a $200 night hotel. We booked two nights. Stayed for one and left. We were told we would get a refund still waiting on that refund for the second night. The manager had us checkout as soon as we cancelled our second night. This was about 3 hours before regular checkout time.

absolutely nothing, why Travelzoo would even recommend such a place is a huge disappointment.

Basically, this property is just a run-down motel, not a "resort". Rooms are smelly with cramped hanger space (only 3 very flimsy coat hangers) and zero hooks to hang things. One night they set up an outdoor TV screen with the volume turned way up which was annoying to say the least. To top it off the filtration system on the pool was broken and the water very, very cloudy - many people just stayed away from it. If you want a motel-type experience try Motel 6 which would be so much more pleasant.
