When planning our California Roadtrip, I happened to stumble across The Saguaro aka The Colour Hotel and I was basically sold on Palm Springs. Palm Springs is known for it’s sun, hot temperatures and pool parties as well as Coachella. Unfortunately we weren’t there for Coachella so it was a bit quieter, but since we’d been travelling and exploring for a week and half by this point, it was a nice place to chill out and enjoy the pool and all of the colour!
The hotel has two restaurants, El Jefe being our favourite for breakfast and drinks in the evening, with amazing tacos. None of these crunchy shells, but soft flour tortillas with pulled chicken. Yum. We took inspiration from ABM’s Palm Springs travel guide while we were there and we tried Koffi (good mango cooler) and Birba. The pizza really was amazing and we did go to Italy last year!
I would say that a couple of days is enough in Palm Springs if you just want to chill out and enjoy the amazing heat – you will need to be within 10m of a pool or air conditioning at any time though! We enjoyed a day and a half relaxing before we headed back to LA for our final couple of days at Disney!
