The Omni Rancho Las Palmas offers all the perks of a big resort coupled with a true sense of place thanks to its Spanish Colonial-meets-Cali style. Think wrought iron chandeliers, red tiled roofs and cream walls. The 444 guestrooms are spacious but basic, with the same desert-hued furnishings and décor found in the hotel common areas. The focus here is on the palm-tree lined grounds, which you can survey from the rooms’ French doored balconies and terraces. On-site facilities include a full-service spa (plus relaxing pool), well-equipped fitness room, 27-hole Ted Robinson-designed championship golf course, and four dining options, ranging from a grab-and-go café to bluEmber, the California New American restaurant with a charming outdoor patio.
In the Area
Rancho Mirage is on the northwestern tip of Palm Desert, which has its own hub of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. But just beyond the Omni Rancho Las Palmas’ doorstep, there’s no need to travel far: There’s a movie theater and concert venue just down the road and Roy’s Restaurant, Sam’s Sushi and Yardhouse are local favorites for dinner. Further West in Palm Springs, guests will find four museums (including the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert and the Palm Springs Air Museum), along with Knotts Berry Farm, and the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens. Adult travelers might prefer to check out the Moorten Botanical Garden, or Agua Caliente Casino.
How to Get There
We have stayed at this resort every year for the past six years at least once a year. Our children and I both love the resort. The food is excellent.There are shops and restaurants within walking distance offsite. The service is fantastic. The kids love it. The one complaint we have is that they are notorious for making billing errors. The errors range from not giving us credit for food that was part of the package we reserved, to double charging us for food purchases, or for making errors in the room rate. While I would still recommend this resort I suggest you keep all of you reciepts for charges made to your room and also to go over your final bill with the finetooth comb. We have a significant ($100 or more) error nearly every time we stay.
This resort is great if you have kids. It’s just what the doctor ordered for some good family time. I have two young kids (2 & 4) and they had an absolute blast at the kids pool, lazy river and on the water slide. I had a great massage from Carmen (I recommend her). The spa was fine, she was the standout. The pool food is not good but we were pleasantly surprised by our dinner at Ember. Great resort if you have kids or love kids. Without kids, I would probably go somewhere else.
Welcoming staff, great facility, the lazy river and water slides were great for the kids and adults, pool side skinny margaritas are delicious, beautiful room, we will be back soon, we highly recommend this as a destination!
It was just for a few days and unfortunatelly i couldn't enjoy every activity for the next year i will definitely come back and stay more. The staff is very helpfull and the hotel is very well located.
We've stayed here for over a decade and love the location, grounds, views. They need to upgrade the overall comfort of the property with new beds and poolside lounge chairs. Flexibility would greatly improve this review. They seem dedicated to their rules more than the happiness of their guests.
