I have been going to Shadow Mountain for several years for a 3 day tennis camp. I went again last weekend and, as usual, the tennis was terrific. The pro staff is very helpful and always fun. I stayed in a one bedroom, and this was one of the better ones I've been in. They all are decent, but some... More

I stayed in a lovely retro modern deco studio at Shadow Mountain Resort. It was the perfect retreat! Over looking a large gorgeous heated pool surrounded by tall Palm trees. I enjoyed a comfy king bed and sofa, chair and round table and with two chairs. Nice modern kitchenette with two burner stove, micro/oven and medium sized refridgerator. I loved... More

This resort is my favorite place to stay when I am in Palm Desert! The grounds are beautifully manicured and the large pool is the STAR of the show! Equally fantastic are the pleasant staff, especially a gentleman by the name of Christopher. He operates the front desk and he is always a friendly face to see upon our arrival.... More

It was a nice visit. The poolarea is clean and well taken care of. It's a little bit old standard in the rooms but nothing that disturbes. It's clean and not broken. We lived in a villa with two floors. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 toilet a large livingroom with a open kitchen and dining area. Dubblegarage in the house.... More

We are glad you enjoyed your visit and accommodations, but wish we would have been proactive in providing a roll away bed sooner. The out of order bed now repaired, we do appreciate your comments. We look forward to your return, and are happy your family enjoyed themselves! More

We booked this resort hoping for a nice unit. After circling around trying to find the place, which is off the beaten path, we requested a nice updated room, and were told it was "very nice". Wrong. The beds were squeaky, the screen door is very close to falling right out, the sheets were scratchy and the bedspreads thin, the... More

We stayed here before and loved the location but hesitated returning due to a few past issues. We are glad we returned! The grounds, especially the pool area, are expansive. Several two story buildings house creek side and poolside rooms. No elevator but steps have low risers. Our king studio was updated with tile, walk in shower, flat screen, decor... More

Stayed here on a Business Retreat. At first sight my thoughts were outdated, not sure what to expect. What a pleasant surprise. Our Room was very nice despite it is an older resort. It actually was a 2 bedroom condo unit that was in impeccable condition. Very comfortable. The Pool is Great! The one BIG Bonus for me is the... More

My husband and I love to come to this resort. Why? 1. The pool is amazing. Salt water, clean, and cool. 2. The manager and staff are amazing. My husband and I try to come at least 3-4 times a year. The last couple of visits there were issues with first the heat and then the air. But the manager... More
