My one word review would be, Awesome! A more detailed review would be, they have all sorts of things for kids to do at the activity center. Games, movies, ping pong, pool table, shuffle board and putting green. At the same center they have drink making "classes" for adults. The kids can play right behind you the whole time. The... More

We have stayed at this property a handful of times and have enjoyed it every time! The suites are spacious and have a full kitchen. A perfect place to go with families and a group of friends. There are many pools and one just for adults (quiet pool). The staff is friendly and accomodating. Stores are close by too. We... More

This is our family's 6th year staying at this resort. We have stayed at both the Enclaves as well as the Shadow Ridge (older section). This year we decided to stay one week at each of the locations within the resort to really determine which best met our family's needs. Although the Enclaves pool is much quieter and the rooms...

We are Marriott Vacation Club owners and wanted to use up an extra week. We were not disappointed at this resort. The units are beautifully appointed and stocked with everything a family could need for a week's stay. The golf course is well groomed and landscaped. There are plenty of areas to walk, play your favorite sports, or just relax... More

A few days ago we completed three weeks at Shadow Ridge and we're committed to returning for a number of weeks next year as well. The property is well designed and well landscaped, overall quite attractive. We had a two bedroom unit, although next year we'll probably have just a one bedroom unit since there are just two of us.... More

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
