First off let me say I work for a Starwood Hotel so my expectations are usually a little different than others, so first off the rooms are gorgeous, balcony's in almost every room, gorgeous view of the dessert, pools open 24/7, great front desk service. To sum it up real quick the room was the best part. So much extra... More

I found a good deal and stayed for 2 nights with a group of friends. The rooms were spacious. The furniture, decor and lighting could use a little update. For the Westin brand, the bedding sheet was a bit worn-out. Cleanliness was fair. What was undeniable great were the multiple pools and 24/7 access. The staff were very courteous, especially...

We had a wonderful extended weekend here. The staff is extremely welcoming. One staffer was a standout, Reyes. A really terrific and hard working employee. The tubular slide was great fun and happy hour by the pool was enjoyed as well. The shuttles offered to take guests around the property was appreciated as well, esp. in those desert summer months

I think this property might be primarily a Westin Vacation Time Share, however, we stayed here using Westin (SPG) points. The Villas worked well for our family as we were able to cook breakfast in while our teens slept in. The property itself sprawls and is landscaped beautifully. We really enjoyed the fact that there will two pools adjacent to... More

Our stay here was very relaxing despite the fact that the temperature hovered in the 100-113 degree range. The accommodations are owner-owned as this is a VOA with Starwood. They are only about 5 years old and they are building several more buildings (we did not hear any construction noise from Bldg 4). Our room was an ADA compliant room... More

we stayed here for three nights and were amazed as soon as we walked in. the check in staff was very friendly, especially Warren Jerome who checked us in, and even upgraded our room once they found out it was our honeymoon and we had a bottle of wine and chocolates courtesy of the concierge Francine. The pools are amazing,... More

Excellent choice to stay with family! Clean rooms with all the amenities of a time share resort. Loved the food at the resort restaurant, the burger was surprisingly delicious plus they have craft beer on tap! You can't go wrong with that. The main pool with the "raging waters" type slide was an attraction. You definitely don't see that at... More

This place is absolutely home away from home. Our two bedroom villa was perfect. It was close enough to the pools to walk to either one, but distant enough to not hear the people in the pool. My son loved that the main pool is open 24 hours. There was plenty of activities for the kids and the cabanas were... More
