We're HGVC owners. It was our first time trying out the Club Intrawest, as it is partnered with HGVC. It was also our first time in Palm Springs. Overall, we were happy with our stay. The "resort", if you can call that, is right in Palm Desert, within close proximity to high-end shopping in El Paseo, as well as the... More

Thank you for sharing your impressions on your first visit to the Club. I am sorry to hear the construction crew and lack of blackout blinds woke you up before 7am - I know we all value our sleep so I will address start times with our contractors. While there are certainly "critters" here in the desert, it is not... More

We booked through a timeshare exchange, without much knowledge of the property. We couldn't have been more delighted with the place. We were there with another couple, and had a 2 room, 2 bath condo, which is really adjoining accommodations. Intrawest calls them a "lockout" because you can enter through two doors, and the two rooms can be separated. The... More

Club Intrawest Palm Desert sets the benchmark by which other resorts of this type should be measured. From the moment you drive onto the property, you know that this club is special. The first thing you note, is that it hasn't turned its back on its desert location - the gardens are lush, but with cactus and other dry climate... More

I just want to commend Philip and the staff who keeps this place running so smooth. This is my third time back. It is a place where you can truly sit back and relax. There are plenty of pools that are oriented to both children and adults. You can sit back and read a book at poolside and not get... More

When first walking into our unit, we were blown away. The first door you walk through takes you onto an open air terrace that features a table and chairs and a gas fireplace. Then you continue on to the real door of the unit. Very impressive. There is a stand alone clawfoot tub in the bedroom. The shower is huge... More

We booked the last week in August at Club Intrawest after 2 weeks in Florida to check out the dry heat as opposed to the humidity of the Gulf Coast. We really enjoyed it. The facilities are excellent and at times it felt we had the whole resort to ourselves as it was quiet. We took in the cable car... More

We are very happy to hear your summer visit to Palm Desert was relaxing and enjoyable. The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is a great way to cool off a little when temperatures on the valley floor soar into triple digits; even Joshua Tree is at higher elevation, and so somewhat cooler, and both make great summertime activities. We appreciate you... More

We stayed here at the beginning of January 2015 and couldn't get over how beautiful the property was. The staff was super friendly and helpful, and the rooms were comfy and clean. Club Intrawest has literally thought of everything you would want! So much to see and do close by. This vacay was a home run!

This property lives up to the Intrawest standard of excellence. Rooms are nicely appointed, and although a large complex, was surprisingly quiet. The property has 3 swimming pools (one adult only) that were never crowded and multiple hot tubs. The pool areas also had immaculate BBQ's. Washer and dryers on location are free of charge (laundry soap is provided).

We use some of our points here every year in December. We concur that the grounds and units are kept in immaculate condition. Two amenities outside and near the resort are really important to us as non golfers. The first is the newish outdoor public pool about 1 mile away to the southwest, this outdoor pool is 50 X 25...
