We returned again to the villas for a fun girls weekend. The villa was clean and spacious. The staff was very welcoming and efficient. We stuck to the villa pools, did not go to the main resort pool. I think they charge 20/person for access. Kind of lame, but so is taking the shuttle in the heat to get there.... More

This review has been long overdue. I booked a weekend getaway for my husband's birthday (August 2013), last minute, after canceling my original plan which was at Lowes in Coronado/ San Diego, due to the weather. I found a great package deal on their website which included two night stay, a 60 min couple massage and a free breakfast for... More

We checked in around 8;30 at night after a long flight and found that the toilet was not working. Called front desk and they advised they would send up engineering. Called front desk at 9:30 inquiring about when toilet would be fixed. Again advised engineering would be right up. Called again at 10:30. Sorry for problem but someone would be... More

We stayed at this time share through Interval International. We really enjoyed it here. We had a 1 BR with full kitchen and balcony. We stayed in the W building, corner unit, upstairs, with a view of the golf course. Everything was what we expect from a Marriott! They emailed me about 2-3 weeks before our stay asking for my...

We come here every two or three years and it is fantastic. It is a great Marriott Property. Having the JW next door is a big plus. The front desk is very accommodating with requests for certain villas and other items when you check in. The check in can be a bit hectic at times but only once was my... More

I reserved this property for one week as a timeshare exchange through Interval International. I booked an efficiency which is marketed to accommodate up to 4 people. I called prior to arrival to request a unit with a king bed and was informed that all efficiencies at this property have only 2 double bed. Needless to say this getaway did... More

These timeshares are very nice. The surroundings are gorgeous. You are right by a golf course and the grounds are immaculately kept. The pool area is excellent as are the facilities. The accommodations are spacious and comfortable. You are also nearby the Marriott Resort.

First time to Palm Springs, and this place was a great place to start. The surrounding area is beautiful and I've never seen so many golf courses in such a short proximity to one another. The only downside is if you're here to actually hit the city of palm springs, you're a 20-minute ut if you don't mind the drive,... More

We really liked this place. They furnished us with anything we ran out of from lotion to shampoo to coffee. The suites are very large and the backside looks out on the golf course. I wish we could have set the temperature to either heat or air because the heater kicked on a couple of times and I consider that... More
