This year for our anniversary we wanted to take a mini trip, but weren’t sure where to go. We decided that we wanted to keep it within a 3-4 hour drive from our house. I checked out our options and basically came up with Santa Barbara, Hollywood or San Diego. We really just wanted a place to hang out…whether it be at the pool or beach. However, the weather forecast wasn’t looking promising for a coastal adventure.

So, I continued to rack my brain for ideas when it suddenly hit me…Palm Springs! That is one place we had never spent much time and it was supposed to be SUNNY and warm. This is when I started researching places to stay. My only real requirement was that it must have a nice pool area. I found and fell in love with a Marriott that has an awesome pool and even a water slide; however it came with a $200 per night price tag. Then I came arcross the Riviera Resort and Spa. From the description and photos on there website I didn’t think we could go wrong to quickly made reservations. The hotel is newly renovated and fabulous…and it was only $99!

The pool area was awesome and came complete with a bar. One of my favorite things was that I saw 1 child the entire time we were there. Not that children are bad but I didn’t want to hear little brats yelling “Marco Polo” during my mini vacay! Our room was pretty nice. We were on a corner with a pool view!

We pretty much lounged by the pool all day, even having lunch poolside. Oh and several cocktails. OK, fine…I had a few cocktails too many and had to spend an hour in the room alone with the toilet. But then I eventually made it back to the pool.

We shared a flat iron steak and lobster mac n cheese for dinner in the lounge. There was actually a DJ in the lounge, so we got to listen to some fun music as well.

On our way home we stopped by Tyler’s Burgers, which I can’t recommend enough! We shared a cheeseburger and a strawberry malt…both were so fresh and tasty!
