Stayed here for two nights in August. admittedly, not the busiest time. 110 outside, but between the hotel's wonderfully air conditioned interior and the pool, it was no problem keeping cool. This is an enormous resort, perhaps the largest in the Coachella Valley. It covers nearly a square mile the front desk told me, and there's a lot to do... More

My Wife and I stayed at the JW Marriott-Desert Springs for our Anniversary. In the Summer, they have some fantastic package deals and we took advantage of a Spa package. The Spa at Desert Springs is fantastic! They have a Day Spa that allows you to spend all day relaxing and taking advantage of the amenities. Our package included two... More

This place must have been great at one time and the service is impeccable still but the facilities are tired and the accommodations need a completely redo. The door hinges are rusty, the pool chairs old, the parking kind of creepy and cottage cheese ceilings are just unattractive.

After a good stay last September, we came back. I will be brief! - Room filthy and not prepared - know exactly what the previous occupants ate and drank, the stains were all over the flat surfaces. - "Quiet Pool" - what a joke. Illustrates how a few idiots can wreck the holiday of many. Rules totally ignored and the... More

We went to Desert Springs JW for a guys golfing trip in June. There were six of us and we had 3 rooms. The property is very clean and nicely manicured. Many of the people we intially met were very rude. No one really wanted to help us and our luggage stayed in the lobby for over two hours because... More

What a beautiful resort! The rooms are beautiful, the pools are amazing, and the golf course is very well-kept. We enjoyed visiting the many birds downstairs - parrots, love birds, etc. - so full of character and fun...what a nice touch. The entire resort is elegant. We enjoyed Mai Tais in the pool, relaxed in the water and jacuzzi, we... More

We were looking for a place to hangout for July 4 weekend with small kids. Marriott member so wanted to stay with Marriott. Had also been to esmeralda before and loved it but decided to try this one instead. Pros: Typical Marriott in terms of room quality, clean, etc etc. The rooms are sizable and have a pullout sofa which... More

I love this resort. Why? It isn't because I had a perfect experience (I haven't!), or amazing accommodations (I've seen better), or five star service from everyone every time (perfect service only here and there). I love this resort because it's comfortable and everything I need is right there. Once we pull up in the car, we always end up... More

From the drive in to entering the resort, the scenery fit the website's description. The place is BEAUTIFUL! The staff was friendly and courteous and it was close to EVERYTHING that we needed. We felt totally safe the entire time we were there, and they kept the place spotless. We LOVED it, we didn't want to leave, and we are... More

My wife and I stayed out here this past weekend for a quick get away and were really disappointed. We knew going in that this is really a "scene" which is fine but they seem to be lacking the basic luxuries that this property used to offer. The service was pretty good as everyone was eager to please but it... More
