Service was great during my entire stay. The room was also very nice and clean. I was there for a tennis event and it was a wonderful hotel due to the close proximity to the tennis courts. The location is beautiful. Travel from LAX is a valid alternative.

I'm sure in its heyday the resort was great but now all that's left is a place in desperate need of a refurb. The bar fridge in the room had rusty slats in the door, the pool loungers had broken slats and the carpets were heavily stained both in the room and common areas the resort. The TV's were also...

This hotel has beds that make it feel like you are laying on boards all night long!! I hate this hotel and never will stay at this hotel ever again. The hotel should change its name to Motel 6!!! The appearance is okay but the first night I complained about the hotel bed and they said that's all they had.... More

Air conditioner had a noise on the last night and we couldn't sleep, overall service was good, the goose woke me up in the morning, but my daughter liked it because they had eggs on a nest on top of the pool bar. But maintenance removed the eggs, also the goose was swimming and poking inside the pool

Hello Bellezalatina, I hope you had an enjoyable stay with us. Our staff pride themselves on providing the best service to our guests that we can to ensure a great stay.

Great views. There are lots of things to do. I love the pool, lots of room. The very quiet and peaceful. The beds are really comfortable and nice. The rooms are very nice and clean. It is in a great location to grab Starbucks and take a nice stroll around the hotel.

I really like staying at the desert Princess. It is my second time (as far as when I'm writing this review) and have enjoyed both of my stays. The first time was in one of the corner suites and we liked it so much we decided to get the exact same room again. The staff is fine. Everyone seems to... More

There is a lack of adequate signage as you approach the resort. Including two addresses on the internet! The elevators need upgrading badly. The rooms are nice size but need to be upgraded with a bigger and better tv. The view from the pool/mountain facing rooms is extraordinary. The pool area is spacious and the golf course is stunningly beautiful..except... More

The furnishings were a little dated but the hotel, pool area, and staff were very nice. We had a pool and mountain view and really enjoyed it. We stayed one night but would have stayed longer if time permitted.
