We were recommend this hotel by friends and it was BETTER than we had expected. We were 4 in a fabulous riverside room with 2 queen beds. The rooms are big, airy, chic, comfortable and being by the river was out of this world. The only thing that we as Londoners found odd, was that there was literally no service of any kind i.e. you can't buy water, provisions etc. There is a launderette and drinks machines on the property but that is it - I just found this odd as the rooms are exceptional and you feel like you are in a 4/5 star hotel without any service. BUT, we would go back in a flash. Fabulous pool and setting and the divine deer feeding on the plants outside your room each morning and night only made the whole stay even better. The Desert Pearl Inn is a special place but get a riverside room to really feel how special. We will return.
Stayed in room 608, a premium king size room on 2nd floor of back building, close to the Virgin River. Huge room with separate sitting area, high vaulted ceiling, big balcony with gorgous views of the river and red mountain. A 15 minute walk to Zion, if the city shuttles are full. Highly enjoyable pool area after hot days of summer hiking. Delivered on every need and expectation. Highest recommendations!
