I recently stayed here on business but would gladly return for any reason if I happen to be in the area. PROS: (tons) Awesome scenery, helpful and friendly staff (every one of them!), awesome pool and furniture about the pool, amazing fountains all around the grounds, best fitness center I've been in, great restaurants on site, good internet, very nice...

This was our second Renaissance property that we have stayed at and their customer service was a bit off at times. Most of the staff was fine but service was lacking consistency across our stay. I would award the best marks to the front desk during check in. Bell, dining, housekeeping, check out and pool service have room for improvement.... More

This hotel was very clean and seems very well maintained despite its age. Our room had a balcony facing the pool. Dinner was awesome in the lounge area. Loved the pillows - felt really pampered and taken care of! We took advantage of bikes provided by the hotel and explored the areas around Indian wells.

This was my first visit here and it was for a work retreat. The grounds were beautifully and meticulously landscaped, resulting in a wonderful oasis in the middle of the desert. Because our meals were company sponsored events, the meals were provided buffet-style in the ballrooms. The meals were average (thus the 4 stars), leading one to wonder much better... More

Not a lot to complain about with this resort hotel. It sounds a bit "picky" to only list the downsides but the rest was all good and better. The balcony in our corner room didn't have a chair. I know it's smal but the view was lovely and a small chair would have been nice. The Italian resturant was closed... More

I was there for a business meeting and hotel is beautiful and well maintained. I didn't eat at the restaurants in this hotel, but the banquet food was very, very good. The pool bar is great and the pools looked inviting. If you go to the pool bar look for Adrian and Tony.

We stayed 4 nights here for a business convention. Everything was fantastic from the night we checked in until the morning we checked out. Bearifully manicured, lush grounds, friendly staff that was always helpful and clean, plush rooms. We enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi many evenings. We are already planning to return with out son.

My wife and I have been to this hotel 3 times in the last year, with our last visit this past weekend, which was absolutely amazing!!! We loved our first visit last year for her birthday around this same time; resort was quiet, not a lot of people there and very relaxing. Especially, sitting on the other side of the... More

We decided to get away for the weekend. Okay, perhaps we're a little crazy but escaping to over 100 degree temps is not everyone's ideal of a restful and relaxing weekend. But, we love the desert. It had been over a decade since I had stayed at the Esmeralda. My memories were of a beautiful hotel and relaxing environment. Check... More

Thank you for your recent review. It means a great deal to us to have you join us as a returning guest but we’re sorry to hear that your guest check in experience and delivery of firm pillows took much longer than it should have. There are times when we do have a large group in house and we are... More

It was a scorching weekend in Southern California so we decided to go for relief and relax by the cooling water, poolside at the Renaissance Esmeralda. This was our 4th visit to this resort. The service is great and the rooms spacious with modern decor..
