Beautiful resort with all sorts of amenities. Stunning views of mountains and the grounds are very well kept. Great for walking. The swimming pools are huge and plenty of space for everyone. The rooms are very dated and need an overhaul. I noticed one building was being re-done, so maybe they are starting to redo them all. The west facing... More

There are essentially 4 combinations of room to have; a 1 Bedroom, a studio, a combination of the 1 bedroom and the studio together with internal doors... we usually have this and the Enclave units. I would strongly recommend the 1 or 2 Bedroom, skip the studio as they have a partial kitchen, are a little crammed in, and no... More

Decided to get away near home and booked a room at this place. Great atmosphere. The golf course and mountain views cannot be beat in the desert. We especially enjoy going in mid-late October, shortly after the new grass has grown in and it looks luxurious and green as far as you can see. BBQs located around the complex, and... More

First time at Shadow Ridge and was very impressed with resort. Sits on a beautiful golf course. Amazing activity centre with many planned activities for kids and grownups alike. Too many pools to visit so we spent all our time at the family pool which was huge with a waterslide, hot tub, toddler pool and water splash park. Handy to... More

Shadow Ridge has it all. Our two bedroom suite is very well appointed with full kitchen, two full baths, three flat screen TVs, fireplace (electric), two balconies and a view of the green and a pond. This is a huge complex with five pools and a clubhouse with games, an arcade and a movie theater. There is also a shuttle... More

Being an owner at Marriott's Desert Springs Villas II in Palm Desert I utilized my week of 2014 as the split option and traded my smaller unit lock out for the two bedroom unit here for Christmas week.
