We stayed at the Desert Isle resort for a week in November. Check in was easy and quick. The clerk was friendly and helpful and said that our unit (#22) had recently been renovated. He invited us to partake in the wine and cheese tasting that evening in the patio. We did so, but found that he had neglected to... More

This resort is very conveniently located to all tourist attractions. The resort is nicely designed with most units very close to the pool. We found that our one bedroom, two bath units was very large, however the unit showed it age. We had problems with the water flow in one shower, and both toilets had problems with flushing on two...

Conveniently located to everything. Trent at the front desk is fabulous! Rooms and grounds are very clean and well maintained. Friendly and polite staff. Very impressed with Alonso - hard working and accommodating.

We just got back from a weekend stay here. The staff was all very friendly, the grounds are very nice and our one bedroom was huge! Bigger than the condo we live in! We got a great deal on the room and cooked all of our meals in the full kitchen so we saved a ton of money. The room... More

No activities; pool areas were not maintained pool was dirty; asked to be moved were not very accommodating especially when they were not at full capacity & the reason we know that parking spaces empty; & majority of people we met were there for...

Was supposed to stay at Palm Canyon but was switched to Desert Isle and I am sure glad they made a change! Stayed with my family over the Labor Day weekend in a one bed two bath. The accommodations were updated and clean! The shower in the master was spacious and the shower head spray was not sparse! Bed was... More

Outstanding accommodation, location and amenities. Huge bungalow/apartment, great patio and BBQ, metres from the pool. Exceptional grounds maintained daily. The cleanest and best maintained pool I've experienced ( being an ex-plant maintenance pool person), clean towel replenished on request, the Manhattan Restaurant on site was only metres away and if the locals go there, it's good enough for us tourists....

Can't say enough good things about this place, totally relaxing resort, nice villas, pools and landscaping. Great place to get your relaxation on. Nice restaurant next door that is easy to walk to. Kitchen was well stocked, and plenty of upgraded appliances. We will stay here again!!!
