Its a time share. They are in the business of selling time shares, not taking care of hotel guests. We were on a 4 day promotional package which we had extended at full boat for another three days. Our room was small and dark. The corridors were brown drab concrete that looked like a cell block. Maid service was minimal.... More

The Westin Desert Willow as been our choice for extended stays for many years. The resort is located inside the beautiful Desert Willow Golf Course. All the buildings housing the villas face a different direction which gives... More

We were on a 4 night promotional stay last week. We've done these type of stays for other hotel brands before. This was by far our best experience. First, there was no high pressure sales routine (we had a choice to attend but declined). Believe me, the place sells itself. I left kind of wishing we had looked into a... More

The layout of this resort is not good. Almost all the buildings are a hike from the main pools, bars, restaurants etc. There is a shuttle, but not always there when you want or need it.

We enjoyed a fantastic four-day stay at the Westin Desert Willow Villas. Keep in mind this is a villa property and not a full-service resort, the differences are subtle, but noticeable if you are used to higher end resorts. Pros: • Beautiful pools and grounds • Fantastic kids club and lots of kids activities • Friendly staff • Easy parking... More
