We arrived Sunday of last week. We booked an early bird flight and arrived at the hotel around 10:00am. We knew our room wouldn't be ready but we wanted to get checked in anyways. We were treated great the staff gave us towels to lay out by the pool, and said they would call us when our room was ready.... More

My wife and I stayed here as part of an anniversary trip to Palm Springs and Dana Point. Shadow Ridge is simply awesome. The grounds are spectular and I mean manicured! Our room view of a golf course hole with the mountains in the background was just breathtaking every morning. The staff was great, very courteous and friendly. I would... More

We shared a great 2 bedroom condo with another couple. The accommodations were upscale, clean and comfortable. We looked out over the Nick Faldo golf course and were less than 100 yards form a very large swimming center. The grounds were simply desert-gorgeous.

Having stayed at this resort eleven different weeks since Dec 2006 there was a reason we kept coming back. Great accommodations, great location, great grounds, great golf. We just got back a week ago since our previous stay of Nov 2013. With a new GM and Resort Manager Since Oct of 2013 just shortly prior to our last visit they... More

This hotel was a great spot for the weekend. Just staying for one night was not enough. The one bedroom villa was a great size for a family of four (we had 5, and opted for an additional room). It is spacious, with plenty of room for everyone not to feel cramped. The kitchen was great, and added extra convenience.... More

2 couples shared a 2 bedroom condo with plenty of space and everything we needed. The golf course was fantastic and we visited the JW Marriott property a few miles away to enjoy more golf as well as spa. It was Mother's Day Weekend and the pool was hopping with families... an over abundance of children yet we found a... More

Had a wonderful time at this resort. Relaxed by the pool, partied by another pool, bbq outside my room, had a wonderful lunch on the balcony in my room. Staff is friendly and there but no intrusive like a regular hotel, lots of activities.

Do NOT stay here! If you are looking for a vacation, go to the Omni Las Palmas or the Westin or anyplace but here. There is absolutely NO service here. It is all self service. Didn't get our room until 5:30PM. No place for breakfast. Not sufficient housekeeping to clean the rooms. Had to call six times to bring a... More

Just returned from our 3 week stay at the Shadow Ridge Villages. This was our 4th holiday and it just keeps getting better each time. The staff were friendly and helpful and everyone greeted you no matter where you were and what they were doing. We try to stay at the resort around the same time each year to avoid... More

We chose this resort for one night during a two part family getaway to the desert. The condos are spacious and well appointed and offer large patios with views and plenty of BBQ areas between each building. We brought 2 boys, both age 11, and the pool and arcade area was great for them. We rented bikes and signed them... More
