I seldom feel the need to write a review because in general most places we stay are pretty nice and the reviews already reflect this, but I think that management at this resort needs to hear from more folks who found the resort to be far from a typical MVC experience. As a Marriott Vacation Club owner, I was very... More

Let me start by saying we own several SPG timeshares and DVC points and this is our 2nd experience at a Marriott. A year ago we were driving by and decided to see what the models looked like and we were impressed. We liked the fact that they were a true two bedrooms rather than being a lock off and... More

This resort is basically a timeshare, but can stay without being a member. Great location in Palm Desert, Ca. If you are looking for a great place that caters to all family members, this fits the bill. The kids center will keep your children entertained while you enjoy quiet time.

We stayed here Fri-Mon for a mini family vacation in the sun! We had a great time, stayed in bldg. 1500 across from the family pool with waterslide. My kids loved it here (ages 8 and 5). It was really crowded and the pool is packed from 9AM-9PM. The activities were fun, Zumba, golf, stuff a buddy ($25 for big... More

Just got back from a two week stay at Shadow Ridge and it was wonderful. We stayed in the 2200 building and it seemed to be the perfect spot. We had a corner unit with a great view of the golf course and the mountains. The rooms were very very clean and well stocked. The building was also convenient for... More

We had a 2 bedroom suite. The resort had everthing in there! tThe room was big. Full kitchen. Walked on the golf course. Our back room opened up to a par 3 hole. It was about a balmy 118 degrees!. Place lush green. Lots of stuff for the kids to do. The theatre was a nice surprize. The pool had... More

We had a very nice stay at the Marriott Shadow Ridge. Rooms were clean and space was amble. There needs to be however attention paid to detail to move my rating from Very Good to an Excellent. The walk ways need attention by the housekeeping staff; the same wine cork sat outside our door as did a Q-Tip for the... More

I come to Shadow Ridge every summer and this time didn't disappoint. Stayed in the 1700 building and enjoyed a different view. We spend a day at each of the pools and usually watch a evening movie in the main pool. Definietly check out the Mirage activities so that you can get out of the heat for a while.

I came here with my son, daughter-in-law and 3 year old twin grandchildren back in April, which I understand was the Spring break, so quite full. I have been reading the reviews since then and don't recognise the place we visited! The resort was very clean and well kept, very green with lovely flowers. Our apartment was opposite the main...

We have been going to this resort for 10 years. After our last stay at the end of July 2014 we are probably not going back. I called the resort in advance to let them know about my preferences as I always do. I asked for the ground floor, closer to the main pool, and early check-in. Non of my... More
