We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath villa within easy walking distance of the JW Marriott. The decorations and lights added to our festive weekend. So relaxing. Lots of room for four women. We even managed to get some shopping, walks and hot tub time!

Marriott's Desert Springs Villas I really set the standard for timeshare operations. This property and the adjacent Villas Ii are well-maintained, adequately-staffed, and professionally organized. All timeshare owners should hope for and expect the overall quality of this property. Unlike so many timeshares that were former run-down hotels, refurbished a little, and assigned a time-share designation, this property was designed... More

Beautiful surroundings. Golf course view with mountains in the background. Use of the JW Marriott. Nice balcony. These are great. However there were things that I am used to (Westin has me spoiled) that were missing. Small things like no Jacuzzi in master. Motel Six soaps and shampoo. No salt and pepper shakers. Beautiful but uncomfortable living room furniture.The main... More

We stayed at the Villas I for 5 nights. Our villa was a 1 bedroom with a pool view. It was spacious!! We had access to the JW Marriott the whole time - sunday-thursday you get 20% off at the JW on food and spa, not alcohol. The JW's food is very expensive but worth it. Only 1 place to... More

I guess we must have gotten stuck with the use only they are getting the room for free suite. Stayed here with Marriott points and thought it would be nice to give it a try, well I feel like we wasted the points on this room which was nothing special. Was small not very bright with an odd layout. I... More
