So clean and the property and views are beautiful. We booked a one bedroom villa. And it was so spacious. Their are two... More

For one night great. $171 for Sat. Night great price. Refrigerator I like. The Enclaves much nicer for little more money. Saw them. Golf course nice. Limited shaded parking. Nice pools. Three story buildings with elevator in middle.

One of the most beautiful properties in Palm Desert. Marriott has truly mastered the ability to have a VERY large property with a lot of people and never feel crowded. We loved it so much we bought a timeshare there so we can return again and again.

If you have children this place is amazing!!! The activity center with movies, pop corn, games, activities for the kids, pool, ping pong and arcade ( most for free) is incredible!! Highly recommend this resort. The rooms are priced good and low $200 for a villa with 2 full rooms and a full kitchen is a great price. I will... More

The property itself is very nice. Well-kept, clean, aesthetic. It is however, huge. With so many rooms, the pools are insufficient to comfortably hold a lot of people. It was very crowded at the pool. Many guests had coolers and lots of 'stuff', so it seemed as though all of the chairs were occupied, however, I'm guessing it was a... More

We stayed in a one bedroom time-share condo. It was much roomier than we expected, and fully equipped with all the necessities. We spent much of our week touring the Coachella Valley area and this was facilitated by the location of Shadow Ridge in Palm Desert with easy access to the freeway and main roads in and around Palm Springs....

Check in was wonderful, we stopped in just after 10:00 after checking out of Desert Springs. Staff friendly and pre-checked us in. I requested a corner unit top floor if possible. She had a nit for us but it wasn't ready so they took my # to call when We could come back. Got message about 2:30 that our room... More

Don't like coming here, but came because of the Encore Program. We asked for a bottom floor by the pool. We got a room on the third floor and as far away from the pool as you could get. The room was also a handicapped accessible room-- did not ask for one. In addition, I was not able to use... More
