I stayed at this resort from April 3rd to April 7th, 2014. I enjoyed my stay. The staff are all helpful and on all counts they get a great score. With one little caveat....... When I called to ask about transport options from the airport I was told that a taxi was the only way to come. They have no... More

Loved this hotel option in the desert with its stunning views of the mountains and surrounded by the green of the golf course. Perfect for business conferences. The rooms are spacious and well laid out with double sinks, separate toilet room and decent lighting. Beds are comfortable and rooms are fairly quiet. This is a really nice, quiet alternative to...

We stayed here for sadly only one night as part of a tour of the west coast of America. The hotel and resort is lovely. We arrived later and the restaurant was closed but had room service and it was excellent in both presentation and quality. The hotel has excellent quality facilities incl gym , pool and tennis courts /... More

I stayed here for a company conference and wish I could have had my family with me. My room was large and comfortable and they have great pool areas for the kids. The hotel appears clean and new, and they have great areas throughout the resort for receptions and informal meetings. I would recommend this for families or for business... More

I was here for a business seminar. The seminar was great but the hotel and resort were phenomenal. The hotel and grounds were breath-taking. So relaxing and the scenic vistas added to the serenity. Room service and customer service overall was legendary. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and had a very positive experience with the resort. Highly recommend it. It's... More

This is a beautiful resort about 30 minutes from Palm Springs. Stunning landscaping everywhere. The pool area is the best. Staff is friendly and helpful without being phony. The restaurants on the property are all excellent. It really is the perfect place for a weekend getaway.

I stayed at Renaissane Esmeralda at the end of March. We had soo much fun. My husband and 4 year-old son had a blast. The pool was great, especially the sandy beach area where my son could play and run in the pool. The drinks are overpriced, but that is expected at big resorts. We arrived Friday afternoon and were... More

We had our choice between the JW Marriott and the Renaissance. They were both rated the same but we could get two queen beds at the Renaissance. Sadly, our experience has shown us a large but typical hotel pool and a bland and industrial looking building and decor. Pool side drinks can ONLY be hotel purchased but drinks are on... More

My wife and I stayed here over Valentines day weekend. This was our second visit to the property. Room was nice and big with a beautiful bathroom and we felt like we were in a 4 star resort. We would definitely stay here again.
