Beautiful resort facility with outstanding pool area. Staff was friendly and very accommodating, meeting and exceeding all of our needs. Breakfast buffet was pricey but the food was very good. Beds were comfy, room was spacious with extras to meet all our needs and the conference facilities were excellent. The only disappointment was the high expense associated with the business... More

This is a beautiful hotel in Indian Wells. Great pool area and service. They have a lot to do for the kids. The restaurants in the area close early so get out early if you want to dine out. The hotel restaurants are pricey.

Great property for conferences, romance, and families! Rooms are large, beds super comfortable, mini balcony, fridge, and spectacular views of the hills. Pool has several areas to hang out, even a beach area. Center pool bar was a treat! Ate at onsite restaurant, Cava. Everyone was very pleased with size and taste of their food. Other restaurants and shopping within... More

Because of the services offered and the various pools, this hotel is ideal for children as well as adults. The buffet is nice, but dinners could be better. Views are lovely. Many business meetings and proms as well as wedding are held here...usually during the cooler season when functions can be outside. Generally the service is excellent, rooms are nice... More

We were here from Monday through Friday for a school conference. Overall, this place was spectacular. I gave it a four instead of a five, because I felt the lobby dinner prices could have been a bit more reasonable. However, this place was awesome. The rooms are very spacious and we were lucky to be on the fourth floor with... More
