When I got home I found out that we were going to Desert Hot Springs, to try a different boutique hotel, The El Morocco. Unlike Casa Del Zorro, the water comes from natural springs there. And we always do what I want to do. And Yosemite is really cold right now and who knows where I put the chains?
Fine. As you all know I am nothing if not a fifty fifty partner. I quickly acquiesced, as I should have. Les had found a good deal, the place was Spa of the year out there last year and why not? Don't we always do what I want to do?
We are long time goers to Two Bunch Palms and had stayed at our friend the late Bill Dailey's Hacienda, we checked out the new place.
Nice. Slightly funky but functional. Very cool rooms done in the Moroccan style.
Would I recommend it to people used to the Ritz? No, but we don't know too many of those people. Our friends can hang.
Did I mention that we only paid two hundred bucks and that it has full massage and spa services?
Two Bunch Palms is close to three c's now with tax or even more. We did it when the time was right, before the bank took it over but I am afraid those days are gone.
Would I go back again? In a heartbeat. My feet are like wings, sahiba.

Make sure you have a full king like we had. We met a young couple that had two twin beds pushed together.
Otherwise quite recommended. Food is DHS is notoriously bad, we got take out from five dollar pizza that was actually very good.
Give it a go.
After a morning soak and sauna, we checked out the next day at 11:30 a.m. You really needed two days, we didn't have it. Met some very nice travelers there, said goodbye.

Squirrels were happy.
Everybody was happy.
