My husband and I spent the 4th of July holiday at this wonderful resort. Beautifully landscaped grounds and amenities. Terrific poolside area for any guest- this resort embraces children and provides their own small pool! They have a very comfortable and inviting cabana area which offers grilled hamburgers and street tacos very reasonably priced- and delicious. The inside public areas... More

We stayed at the Renaissance for the Fourth of July weekend. It is a beautiful resort, but unfortunately the pool area was overly crowded. You have to get up at 6:00 a.m. to reserve your lounge chair or they will all be taken. There's an inadequate number of umbrellas to provide shade and guests would have to fight for them.... More

Arrived on a Saturday afternoon, easy check in. Upon arrival to our room it smelled like smoke, called and poof new corner room smoke free! Great pool and Tony at the pool bar was awesome! It was crazy busy and he kept his calm and a smile all while remembering faces and orders. Don't lose him. Had a fun time

Thanks so much for your great comments and we appreciate your special mention of Tony and his excellent service! We're sorry for the issue with your original room but delighted to know it was handled quickly. Incidentally, we are a non-smoking resort. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back one day soon. More

This is a very large hotel in a great location. The rooms are large, clean, but sometimes far away from the main lobby. The internet access is fast, and there are many receptacles to charge your phone or other electronic devices The restaurants offer food that is very tasty and the breakfast buffet is excellent. The bar is great, however... More

This is my second time staying at this Resort. I was here last year celebrating my birthday and again this year. I am a Marriott employee and didn't expect to be treated as well as I was. I was here with my husbands family, and upon check-in we found out we were next door. (Not my idea of a romantic... More

I came to this hotel to spend some quality family time since summer just started. I thought it was just going to a regular hotel since it was my first time here, but let me tell you something, I can't wait to go back. The service was beyond wonderful and professional. But what I will remember and will be the... More

We checked in and got a fantastic pool-view room. It's well laid out and spacious_very comfortable. All the staff is super friendly. The pool is lovely and very large. Gift shop is outstanding. Nice restaurants. The food ordered by the pool was delicious. Not inexpensive in general, but quality all around. I'd definitely come back!

This is a large property in Indian Wells which has been recently renovated. The rooms are nice, the personnel is great and the pool is good for families, it even has a little beach area with sand. The nearby golf course (Celebrity) is fantastic for the price ($60 for a 6 AM tee time in June), and the on-premises restaurant... More

We spent 3 nights here in late May and really liked it. Normally we stay at the Rancho Omni but they were sold out and the Esmerelda was actually better for us and less expensive. Yes, the rooms can be really, really far from the pool and lobby. Also, the pool was jam packed with kids so if you are... More

I stayed here 3 nights for a business event. I was really tempted to stay at the Hyatt down the street because I'm a Hyatt person but this was the event's 'host' hotel so... First off, every staff member I crossed paths with was pleasant, professional and courteous so top marks there. The public spaces of the hotel and grounds... More

Thank you for your wonderful comments about our team members and we're delighted to hear that you had the opportunity to enjoy some of our public spaces including Glo Lounge during your recent conference visit.
