We have stayed before and loved it but Marriott Shadow Ridge is going downhill rapidly.The problems all relate to very poor management. First off the resort is way over crowded but not with honest paying guests. We saw cars with no parking passes everywhere. Cars with large families were parked near the pool areas and people were changing into swimwear... More

My wife and I stayed at Marriott's Shadow Ridge Enclaves for 8 days. The resort is beautifully landscaped and the surrounding mountains are unbelievable. It is conveniently located for grocery stores. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite which includes a fully equipped kitchen which is great for breakfast, lunch and dinners. I only cooked dinner 1 time using the... More

Maybe it's because we just came off of a Disney Vacation Club vacation, but this resort is a little disappointing in the details. At check in, she told us we were being given a golf course view...it was an unsolicited accommodation, but great! However, our view is of a swamp -literally. No big deal, views don't matter much. So we... More

Marriott's Shadow Ridge is a shining example of why one should take a vacation in the desert. This was our first visit. We stayed for two nights with our eight-year-old son. The activities calendar is full each day. Or you can choose to lay by one of the pools. Our villa had a king-size bed, sofa bed, small kitchen: a... More

Third year we stayed at the resort (June 27-July 4). This year we has the best room yet - 1601/1602. Full one bedroom with the lockoff for a total of two bedrooms. Very spacious and the kitchen was very adequate. We have two younger children (7 years old) so we prepared nearly all of our meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner... More

We stayed here for the Kraft Nabisco Championship and it was very nice location. Close to the several golf courses included Mission Hills. A short distance to grocery stores and nice restaurants as well. They have a shuttle service within the resort since it is so large with is a plus. Rooms are clean. Very nice resort. Staff is very...
