This is a Marriott Vacation Club golf resort property intended for longer stays, but we only stayed one night while passing through the area. Front desk staff pointed out Vacation Club desk at check-in, but didn't try to hard-sell membership. Resort-type activities and amenities onsite (golf, tennis, pools, etc.) but no resort fee. Our room was a studio with a... More

This is our second time staying at Shadow Ridge, and I had almost forgotten how huge, and I mean huge this resort is. I would think this would be a great place for families because of the spaciouness of the rooms and all of the pools that are available. For us, we try and reserve a room near the quiet... More

It was my own fault for staying here and not doing my homework. After driving throughout the state of California for hours, by the time I arrived at this hotel I was exhausted. The last thing I wanted to do was to drive another 1/2 mile to my room/apartment, try to find my building in the dark of night, and... More

Love this luxury resort! We stay here every year, and love everything about it! The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the resort offers something for every age to love. It has a beautiful golf course, plenty of pools to choose from, onsite restaurants, and a family center with lots of games, a movie theater, and plenty of daily activities... More

Our first stay at a Marriott Vacation Resort and we are now convinced! We met friends and shared a two bedroom suite. Having the living space a kitchen was nice but the large balcony was outstanding. The décor was lovely and recently redone. We'll be checking out other Marriott Resorts.

A wonderful resort with well-appointed rooms. Our lovely suite overlooked the golf course, which was impeccably kept. The property contained beautiful pools on the very lovely grounds. Staff was very friendly and so very accommodating. It was a wonderful experience.

You should cancel and rebook at the Marriott Desert Springs villas II. Lets describe my experience. At check-in I asked if the clerk had a recommendation for hot springs, the response was that's a great question for our concierges at the JW. Akwardly I left the front desk, the weirdest thing is the JW is 5 miles aways. So I... More

We have shared your feedback on this with the resort leadership and thank you for your input. We look forward... More

i love luxery but if your in or near palm springs stay in a local joint to feel like your in Palm Springs. We've stayed here twice and had good experiences both times. My only comments are one, the parking is rediculously far from the hotel - in heels your exhausted before you get to your room. secondly, it feels... More
