The centerpiece of the resort is the Grand Pool Area where you can enjoy a nice swim (the pool is heated year-round) or just relax in the sun. The 10-man Spa is the perfect place to make new friends and enjoy the beautiful star-studded sky. In the winter months, guests gather around the fire-pit for lively conversation.
What sets Tortuga del Sol apart from the many clothing optional gay men’s resorts in Palm Springs has much to do with the attitude of owners Ricardo and Robert and their family of “pets” - Turtles and Tortoises.
Sowbona (which means “Greetings” in Zulu, the native language in
) is a 7 year old Salcata Tortoise. When he arrived at the resort, he was a 3 month old hatchling. He weighs 15 pounds. South Africa
There are also 3 Red Ear Sliders; the mating pair had 5 babies last year that are doing very well. The Red Ear Sliders love to pose during the day in the middle of the pond on the rocks. Some guests have mistaken them for statues!
Ric and Rob want you to relax and enjoy the natural beauty and spirit of
; they want you to stop and smell the roses – or in their case, stop and enjoy the turtles. Palm Springs
