We had to use a week of our timeshare up so chose this place. We honestly felt like we were in our backyard (we are from sunny Arizona). Check-in was quick, but getting our parking pass at the concierge took forever. Very nice people though. We denied all attempts at doing a timeshare presentation and were never bothered about it...

My husband and I spent a week at this resort in a golf/mountain view room. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. We love to cook and found the kitchen well stocked with everything we needed. There are beautiful plantation shutters to block out the afternoon sun. The pools were great but skip the goat patch they call a golf... More

Truly a Gold Crown resort. The front desk help was so courteous and helpful, even let us check in early as the room was ready. Beautiful room, spacious, very well decorated and appointed, well supplied kitchen with all you need, very clean and convenient to work in. The bedroom and bath also spacious, clean, and very comfortable with a private... More

Rented a "villa" for 2 nights for 3 adults and 1 child. Staff was friendly although when you complete your check in, you are then ushered to the Concierge to issue you a parking pass. Real reason for this is for the property to convince you to attend a timeshare presentation. Let's face it, the check in agent can just... More

This place is nothing like they advertise. We're an owner at the Escondido Resort and got treated at the Oasis Resort like some bum off the street. And on top of that, a week later, we recieved two separate additional charges on our credit card which we had to dispute for about two days to resolve it. Don't go there,... More

We made a long 4th of July weekend at this place. It's in Cathedral City, which is close to Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, and Palm Springs. There are some fine places to eat nearby. The resort itself good. Our 1 bedroom unit was 163 overlooking the golf course. The units are large with fully equiped kitchens. It does not look... More

This was a great place to chill during the hot days we spent in Joshua Tree. There were plenty of families there, lots of activities for the kids and a great pool setting. Big room also with plenty of room to stretch out. They had some work being done on the entrance but can you complain about getting better? I... More

A wonderful find through Hotwire for less than $100, including taxes. I came down with the intention of spending only one night in town to visit my teenage daughter over father's day weekend. I liked my first night so much, I asked the front desk I could stay another night and if they could match the Hotwire price - they... More

We stayed here Friday and Saturday night for a weekend with the kids. It is a nice, clean resort and the room we had (one bedroom) was LARGE. It is a smaller property which I actually prefered. We have two boys (9 and 6 years old) and they had fun. The pool is nice but small. Thankfully we went on... More

I arrived 5/15 and got a room that faces the parking lot, but most of the cars there are blocked from view by a hedge close to the cars. I would prefer this to the ones overlooking the pool if I came back. We got the bottom unit, so there is some noise from upstairs. While we did have a... More
