Catalina Spa and RV Resort – Desert Hot Springs, CA
Well we stayed at Catalina Spa RV Resort in February 2018 for a week. It was OK then, nothing special. At the time you could tell that the establishment was under good direction and leadership. The employees were happy and helpful. So I decided to return in October 2018 as a “workcamper” in the security department.
The entire six weeks I was there, the wi-fi did not work, plus it is way too expensive. The cable, if it worked at all, would provide approximately. six channels. The bathrooms in the clubhouse are closed and have been for months for remodeling.
From the day I arrived (October 21) until I departed December 4, 2018, my site sewer vent pipe was broken. I asked and filed out paperwork request for repairs four times. The fumes coming out of the septic sewer system was not just awful but unhealthy. The management claims they want to bring this resort to a 5 star level. It is not a bad RV park, a lot of activities, but will never be a 5 star. The lots are not level nor clean from foliage and trimmings. The sewer connections are unacceptable, sewer hose and fittings are held in place by placement of a rock or sandbag. The trash dumpsters are always over flowing, two dumpsters for a park with 500 sites, get real.
I chose to leave my workcamper position prior to my April 2019 agreement end date. I made this decision after “Christina” and another staff member was involved in a disagreement.
I will never return to this establishment as long as I live. It is really sad because there are some really nice, good workcampers and staff. Most are really upset and considering leaving as I did.
