When a PR rep for Casa del Zorroa well-known resort in Borrego Springs, offered me the chance to review the property for a weekend, I grabbed my beau and we were off. The website alone had excited me, with gorgeous photos of the property, the spa, and the many sparkling pools. Reality did not disappoint.
Borrego Springs is an unincorporated village within California's San Diego County, entirely surrounded by the ,acre Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, which showcases beautiful mountain and desert habitats. The village has been recognized internationally for its distinction as an International Dark Sky settlement, preventing nighttime lighting to protect night sky views. The park stretches 25 miles by 50 miles and is framed by the Bucksnort, Santa Rosa, Jacumba, Vallecito, Pinyon, and Borrego mountain ranges and natural features such as the Salton Trough and Carrizo Badlands.
