Highly recommend Hidden Passage Guest Ranch over any of the other accommodations in the desert. Perfect location in the center of everything, perfect weather (always a bit cooler than palm springs), large infinity pool and several spots onsite to lounge and soak in the beautiful views. Breathtaking view of San Jacinto Mountains across the valley. Awesome hiking trails, everything is dog friendly! They have the inside scoop of all the best local restaurants, things to do, etc. Great for a weekend of exploring Joshua Tree, relaxing in nature, or a peaceful work/stay trip. 5 STARS

Had the most relaxing weekend in this amazing place. Amenities exceeded all of our expectations. Diane helped with anything we needed and Shawn was attentive and happy to assist and show us around. Can't wait to go back.

I almost want to keeps this place a secret, it’s that good! The drive in is a bit rough, and long but we did it in a Camaro so obviously it’s doable. The pool is spectacular, the staff is friendly and attentive when needed but kind of disappear into the background when you don’t need them. You get a phone number to text if you need anything or have any questions and they are very prompt to answer or bring you what you need.We visited during rattlesnake season but didn’t see any, even on hikes around the area.This is such a wonderful place, we hated leaving and considered changing plane tickets and our car rental and staying another day just to hang out on the grounds and swim/shower under the stars. Staying longer ended up not working out because of my work schedule ☹️ but we will be back for sure! This is a kid free zone, FYI, this trip was a couples vacation but I would love to bring my 15-year-old but according to the rules thats not allowed. But pets are allowed!Out of this world location and night sky. Book it! You will be so pleased! We stayed in Air Cabin #4. ❤️❤️❤️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

This is such a little gem. We stayed in the Aphrodite cottage. It was a great balance of privacy and community. Exactly as advertised and very clean. Check in and out were simple and without suprise. The use of a private patio, sunbathing area , BBQ and gated driveway made our relaxing trip as stress free as possible. We did some hiking around the property and loved the views. We will be staying here again and hopefully next time we will open up our schedule a bit to accommodate some horse backing and pool time.
