Bottom Line

The 466-room Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa is a luxury resort built on a country club golf course with a variety of amenities for families. There is a Splashtopia water park with water slides and a sandy beach ringed by a 450-foot lazy river along with an adults-only pool and hot tubs (though the pools can feel overrun at times). A golf course and tennis courts provide extra entertainment. Guests that aren't drawn to the water park might prefer the nearby Westin Mission Hills, which usually has similar rates.

Oyster Hotel Review

Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa


Expansive resort with luxurious Mediterranean vibe

The Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa is a huge palm-tree lined property with a 27-hole golf course. The atmosphere is upscale and relaxed, very Mediterranean-California, with a red barrel roof and tiled fountains. The lobby has high ceilings with wrought-iron chandeliers and windows with shutters and faux-Juliet balconies, along with funky furnishings including a bright yellow floral rug and lime green upholstered furniture. All restaurants and common areas are modern and bright at this refined, peaceful property.

Off a busy road, close to the airport

The Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa is located off busy Bob Hope Drive a few minutes from I-10 and about a 20-minute drive to the Palm Springs airport. There isn't much in walking distance, though several chain restaurants line a main strip nearby. This is a self-contained resort offering a range of entertainment and relaxation opportunities on-site.

Elegant-rustic design with views of the manicured grounds

The 444 rooms and 22 suites at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa are luxurious in an understated way. They are decorated in neutrals, with a beige and cream patterned rug and plush white comforters on the beds. Light wood furniture and dark accents give the rooms an elegantly rustic feel. All rooms have flat-screenTVs, coffeemakers, snack trays (though snacks are on the expensive side), irons and ironing boards, and hair dryers. Noise from surrounding rooms can seep through thin walls. Rooms overlook the golf course or can be near the pool and have balconies. The Executive Suite has pops of aqua and lime green in the furniture and artwork. The marble bathrooms have curtained shower/tub combos and the suites have stall showers and double vanities.

Golf course, water park, spa, and restaurant

The 27-hole golf course is the main amenity, while Splashtopia runs a close second. The water park takes up two acres and includes two 100-foot water slides, a cliff-side Jacuzzi, and a manmade sandy beach. All of this is surrounded by a 450-foot lazy river and is served by the Splash Grill. Other family-friendly amenities include an arcade with a pool table, table tennis, air hockey, old-fashion video games, and pinball machines. There are also 25 tennis courts, including eight lit for night play. The resort’s bluEmber restaurant serves California cuisine and there’s usually live music out front. The elegant spa has a soothing aqua color scheme and its own private pool area. A large business center has Apple computers and there are several meeting spaces. The resort allows pets less than 50 pounds in certain buildings for an extra fee. A boutique sells resort wear and fashionable apparel and the Pool Shop has bathing suits and pool toys.
