We had a lovely room overlooking the golf course. It was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave great advice on sightseeing and restaurants. This resort is located next to the larger Marriott property which has a spa and a variety of restaurants. We would definately stay here again.

This was our first time to Palm Desert and had stayed at Marriott's properties in other states and once again we were not disappointed! Our room was the smaller guest suite yet had all of the amenities we needed for the week! Our balcony looked out over the golf course and mountains, every evening the sunset was breathtaking.

Our unit was a two bedroom with beautiful mountain and golf course views and extremely quiet. The living room was huge and included a fireplace. The kitchen was ample with all the needs for feeding 6. The deck had a table and chairs and a lounge chair. Access was from the master bedroom and the living room thru 8 ft.... More

We stayed here last week with friends that owned a time share and we stayed in a two bedroom unit. On check in, Nathan at the front desk was very friendly, informative and got us into the unit before 1 p.m., even though check in was suppose to be 3 p.m. The unit was very large with the bigger portion...

We had a one bedroom villa overlooking the golf course. They planned the property well so I don't think any of the rooms have a bad view. Villa was very large and well furnished. There are a few pools, one adult only. The main pools were full of families and kids so if you are looking for quieter, check out... More
