Great place

Will return to the Lodge on the Desert.
Had a nice stay here. Large room, pleasant hotel layout, good cooked breakfast buffet. Even rebooked for a future stay. They have a hot tub that guests children like to run up and down the stairs to get to, but it wasn’t noisy into the night. We live in the wilderness and are more sensitive to urban noise!

Found our paradise on the desert
We loved the Lodge on the Desert! The accommodations were roomy and arrangement of the hotel made the stay feel like we were at a private resort. The pasta at Cielo’s was top notch!

Resort without the snob
We really like this place. It's the third time we have stayed. It's an old fashion resort. Not at all pretentious. Nice pool and restaurant.

Update and be amazing.
If they would update the rooms this would be an excellent. Property. The casita style layout is really different. I love the adobe. And the restaurant is charming and has great food.
