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

This hotel is very comfortable. The lobby and guest rooms are decorated nicely and the pool area is large. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I always like to give both pros and cons so here we go... Pros- Good location in Indian Wells - adjacent to Hyatt Grand Champions which is also a great place to stay -... 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

No strangers to the Marriott family of products, we believed this to be one of the best properties in the Marriott chain. Okay, so maybe the Marriott Ocean Club on Maui and the Arc de Triomphe in Paris were just a bit higher in our ranking but this was certainly up there with the best Marriott has to offer. Coming...

We recently stayed at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort and Spa and were very happy with our stay. Corner rooms (7122) are large, clean and beautiful. The pools are huge and have enough room so that you don't feel crowded! There is even a sandy beach leading into one of them. We had a problem with our first stay and contacted... More

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

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
