I was pleasantly surprised this turned out to be such a nice hotel. The service is responsive and excellent, the restaurants' food/service quality excellent, and very comfortable overall for ll types of visitors. I extended my stay even though I live only an hour away.

The Renaissance Esmeralda Resort and Spa is the perfect get-away for a two day retreat. We take the grandkids here the week before they go back to school....one last vacay before starting the school year. They look forward to the end of summer because they know we are going here. The resort has a meandering pool with a cooling waterfall... More

My wife and I decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary (29th) by spending a couple of days at the resort. It is under two hours from where we live, which allows us to spend more time at the resort and less time on the road. We arrived and were immediately assisted by a bellman, putting our bags on the cart... More

Needed something last minute and was pleasantly surprised to find something so nice still available. I needed something with a decent pool so the options were slim especially last minute. The minute you drive into the vicinity of this place, you will find yourself in a different world. The drive leading up to the hotel is immaculate by most standards.... More

Room was enjoyable, pool and property CROWDED. Tried to enjoy drinks at the lobby bar for a night-cap; surrounded by teen-aged parties: on the left was the prom for a local high school. On the right was someone's sweet 16 bash. Not our usual experience at this hotel and perhaps the bar being in between these 2 party spots made... More

I stay at hotels almost a third of the year (Marriott Gold, SPG Platinum, AMEX Plat) and this is the most difficult hotel I have stayed at in years. I came on a weekend in the summer looking to relax (often Palm Springs is quiet when super hot), and this hotel had a good Marriott rate, but I walked in... More

We travel a lot. Locally and internationally. We live in Los Angeles so we go to Palm Springs often to get away with friends and the kids for weekends. This was our first stay at Esmeralda. We were going there with three other families and children. I called to make a reservation for two of the rooms and spoke to... More

This was my first time staying in Indian Wells in the Greater Palm Springs area. I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel and really enjoyed this trip with my daughter, as she is leaving for college soon and we wanted to spend a little time just she and I before she left. I used my mobile Marriott check-in on my... More

Came for a weekend get away to get the heat that we just don't have in San Francisco. Most of the weekend was spent by the beautiful pool(s) drinking margaritas expertly made by the pool bartenders. The pool was not over crowded by any means and finding chairs was not difficult, as some other reviews made it out to be.... More

This resort is very beautiful with several pools and right in the middle of a golf course. I was there for work, but it was very family friendly and many families were there to enjoy the pool with the sandy beach at the end, the movie night on the lawn, and the bike rentals. My major complaint was the location.... More
