Staying at my first hotel during a pandemic had me a bit worried. But knowing how small and quaint Le Serena Villas were, I decided to check it out. It was amazing. The staff was very helpful and were very responsible about trying to keep us all safe. The rooms are gorgeous and the property is perfect. The hotel is within walking distance to so many things, but honestly you don’t have to even leave the property. This will be my go to place (if they have rooms avail) every time I go to Palm Springs

PROS: The intimacy of the property is a huge plus, especially in a Covid-19 world where people are concerned about large crowds. Only 19 rooms and all bungalow style. Deluxe Studio was large, very clean and staff was friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys a boutique hotel experience and wants privacy. Large patio with outdoor tub was a fun perk and unique amenity. Dog friendly. CONS: The "all day" menu has great snacks and can be ordered poolside, but the restaurant itself only had 3 main entree options. They also do not have any breakfast options on the menu despite having room service. They do provide a light continental breakfast basket with hot coffee only, but would have liked a breakfast menu to order something more substantial.

You are greeted with a smile and a glass of champagne on checking in, instantly put at ease. The well preserved and accentuated Spanish architecture cannot not be overlooked. Lush fully bloomed purple flowering shrubs encase the white cement finished walkways and Bungalows and colorful ceramic tiles outline every aspect of the place. Palm trees stand tall in every corner. La Serena Villa distinguishes itself from its surroundings. Each room is uniquely designed, with private patios and backyards, outdoor clawfooted tubs and fire pits. Decorated with individually picked pieces ,mother of pearl finished-furniture , befitting of the ambiance of the place, with high vaulted ceilings lined by rustic woodwork and chandeliers dropping down from the center. The cleanliness of the place cannot be overstated. Azucar, the prime restaurant serves cocktails that are crafted to perfection using the finest ingredients, the menu caters to a refined taste yet remains unpretentious and the service is impeccable. The staff makes sure that you want for nothing. Continental breakfast baskets are delivered to your doorstep every morning. You will without a doubt leave this place feeling pampered and you will be back. This sun drenched boutique hotel is truly an oasis in the desert.

Relaxing and beautiful stay
We chose to stay at La Serena Villas for our Babymoon, and it was the perfect place. So convenient to downtown and many restaurants just by walking around. The customer service was personable (they even had a pregnancy pillow ready in the room), and grounds were gorgeous and upscale. Highly recommend for the amenities and customer service.
