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

Awesome spot and so many things the time share offered that others do not. The staff was so friendly and glad to see standards are executed. So many places have unhappy employees and it shows. Not here. Yoga classes in am and wish I spent more time in the pools!

This is a very beautiful and well maintained property.We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit Building 4100. Our room was very clean and well equipped with a small... More

Well maintained, nicely appointed, kitchen facilities, great pools and fitness centres that are extremely clean. The staff is pleasant and well trained with a bias for visitors satisfaction. They even offer yoga if you are interested.

Even though we own a timeshare unit at Marriott Shadow Ridge, this was our first time staying here for about 4 or 5 years. We love staying at both Shadow Ridge and at Marriott's Desert Springs Villas I located about 3 miles away. We had began staying at Desert Springs Villas I when possible because the units are larger (a... More

This is a kid friendly location with huge pool area. The property is huge. God course open to public, very challenging and pretty. Rooms are nice with the ability of adjoining rooms. Each building is three stories. With covered parking. We had a good experience .

We stayed for one week during the last week of March. I especially liked the Serenity pool. One reason why we avoid the area in March sometimes is that we are a professional couple with no children and find that may of the resorts are filled with kids. Shadow ridge has 3 pools to accommodate everyone. The serenity pool is... More

We didn't get equal value for our Interval International trade since we traded a one bedroom from Breckenridge for a hotel room. Be careful because we were told it sleeps two privately. That just means if you have four, it's not so private any more because the other two are on the pull out sofa in the same room. They... More
