My husband and I booked this resort with Diamond Resorts using points. There are many rooms available for direct booking, with no set rooms for either. We like the roominess of our unit, with two baths ( one with shower, other with tub). The kitchen is fully loaded and the living room large. There is a sofa sleeper, as well... More

This is not an hotel in the traditional sense but a series of well appointed suites arranged in blocks around various walkways and a couple of pools. Not particularly large, it offers very well equipped, spacious, comfortable and clean apartments with dedicated free parking. Eating facilities are limited but there are plenty of local options to choose from.

The resort is located just a few miles from downtown, 5 minutes’ drive. We stayed in a family apartment with fabulous mountain view, lovely balcony, next to the heated pool. The apartment itself was very specious, cozy, fully equipped, lovely decorated. Fully equipped kitchen was very useful when traveling with kids, but not only. Highly recommended for a romantic stay... More

As DI owners, Desert Isle is our 'return site'; this is our third stay here in PS. We find all needs are met in the comfortable condo units. The location is very convenient with grocery stores, eatery sites( including the excellent Manhattan in the Desert restaurant right next door), TJ Maxx in walking distance. The office personnel are very accommodating... More

Stayed here in Mid November using some timeshare points that I didn't want to lose. This resort is pretty well situated, directly across from a shopping plaza containing McDonald's, Walgreens, Wells Fargo, Michael's, a grocery store, about a mile or so from Von's for groceries and gas, same distance to the restaurants and shops of Palm Canyon Dr. and the...

The location is nice, it is in a quiet area but close to downtown and has nice shops and grocery stores nearby. Lovely views of the mountains. Pools were nice and kept up, property was very pretty. There are two bathrooms in the one bedroom. Master bathroom's shower can be made into a steam bath. There is a fireplace also.... More

Very spacious two bed/two bath town house in resort where condos are spread out over property. Spiral staircase to upper bed/bath may be difficult to navigate if you have any health problems. Service was very good and restaurants and shopping plentiful in area. Does not have a restaurant but next door is excellent (Manhattan's) restaurant.

VERY UNFORTUNATE! We really loved this place but this stay of ours will be the last... Extremely poor service by staff. We booked two rooms and had a cockroach problem in both, and one of the rooms the toilet was leaking and my sister actually tripped and fell. We called when the toilet problem happened and they told us that... More
