The Westin Desert Willow Villas are outstanding in every way. The property is located on Portola Avenue, just south of Frank Sinatra Drive, within 10 minutes of El Paseo Drive (a lovely dining and shopping area) and within 20 minutes or so of Palm Springs. The resort is comprised of multiple multi-story buildings that house the "villas". The "villas" are... More

We stayed at the Westin Desert Willow Villas from Sunday, January 19 to Thursday, January 22. The property looks fairly new and they are still doing construction of new phases (although construction noise was non-existent) Our "Villa" was a 1 bedroom with fully stocked kitchen - appliances looked brand new almost. The Westin bed was super comfy, as usual! Pool... More

Our premium villa with it's fireplace, huge shower and jacuzzi tub, heavenly bedding and amazing views from our patio overlooking the golf course with the mountains beyond made for a romantic and enjoyable visit in Palm Desert. We thoroughly enjoyed happy hour sitting outside the Agave bar and the great food available at happy hour prices.

My sister and brother in law have a time share here, and we met up with them for a night. The pool is wonderful for the kids, but watch out if you have little ones. They have to be 48" to go down. My six year old son was crying that he couldn't go down with his sister and cousin.... More

This resort is absolutely incredible. The room ammenities were fantastic for me and my family (2 adults, 2 kids: ages 5&7). The resort pool area not only had several pools but also on going staff lead activities for the kids. Fresh clean towels at the pool house as well as a convenient self-serve water station. Cocktails could be ordered and... More

This was the first time our family stayed here. This is a timeshare type resort which means you get that home away from home. There's a full sized refrigerator, cook top, microwave and washer/dyer. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the heated pool and waterslide. We will definitely stay here again.

Lovely, very comfortable units on a beautiful property in a great location. Currently 7 buildings of 4 stories with elevators. Plans to another 7(?) buildings and additional amenities. Very small market. Did not care for the restaurant. The food was overpriced for mediocre and the chairs were hard and uncomfortable. The outside seating was much better. Glad to hear additional...

The units are quite nice outfitted nicely however the air conditioners are very noisy. When they start up it sounds like a place taking off, I was woken from a deep sleep several times by both the air con in our unit as well as one of the ones in a neighbouring unit.
