This is a very well run facility. Multiple pools, well equipped, great bar and bar tenders. Staff very helpful. Views are outstanding. With a very interesting golf course surrounding the property. We hope to return next winter.

We loved our stay at the Westin desert Willow Villas. The condos are very nice and perfect for families . Plenty to do with the swimming pools, tennis courts, pool tables and ping pong tables. The staff were all very helpful. All in all a very fun and relaxing stay!

We came here to play the nearby Desert Willow Golf Resort courses so this was ver conveniently located. Very nice resort. The rooms are like small condos with a kitchen and living room. Certainly good if you like to cook some meals or at least have breakfast at your place before you leave. Overall grounds and pool area are very... More

We are owners in Orlando and decided to check out the west coast. The grounds are impeccable, villas are clean, spacious and well decorated. We didn't find any of the pools to be overcrowded at any time. Never had trouble finding seating and the line for the slide was very short and often no line at all. While the pools... More

Westin's have a pretty high standard for quality and overall "niceness" and this one was no exception. Another reviewer mentioned the carports as a negative. I can only imagine they weren't there during any kind of warmth or he would have appreciated their function much more! Rooms were great, very comfortable and good sized. Deliciously comfortable beds and fantastic black-out... More

The restaurant and bar do a great job. The best news is that on 2-19-15 a new poolside full service sports bar will open. Located close by are excellent dining, shopping... More

We thought we'd visit the Desert Willows since we still had days left this year on our Westin Hawaii Vacation Ownership. The decor is fairly good blending well with the desert and golf course. However, all of the car ports made this "resort" look like a dormitory or a bunch of apartments. Not much to do here. Pools are crowded... More

stayed, with spouse, a full week in a one bedroom premium villa via exchange through interval international....quiet, pleasant views, decent food at fair prices at the agave grill (on site)....plenty of fancier dining spots within 10 minutes. at $400 a night, including fees and taxes, has to be "pricey"
