My friends and I rented a two room suite for the weekend. We were in Palm Springs for a senior softball tournament. We have stayed at many locations in Palm Springs, but this is the best stay ever. The Desert Vacation Villas are in a great location, the facility is neat and clean and the price cannot be beat. We... More

We have just stayed there for a week. Very clean. condo was spacious. Location is number 1. Pool was very well maintained and also ping pong table and bikes. Very laid back and quiet. No noise during the night. Go for the location and the clean environment.

So impressed by this time share. Great layout, quiet and ample parking. Nice pool and jacuzzi and bbq's avail. Close to town. Looking forward to staying again, The only down side is not enough lights in the bathrooms. Makes it difficult to see if taking a shower at night. No problem during the day since there are sky lights.

Staff was very nice and helpful. Location was excellent but quality of bed was poor. Woke up every morning with back pain. Near the downtown area and away from the crowd. Convenient for driving to all areas of interest.

This is an older resort but well maintained and very clean. The rooms were very comfortable and kitchen had all the basics. There is a guest laundry on premises which costs $1 per load. Great location near downtown, with plenty of stores and restaurants in walking distance.

I love this place. Have used it for years for quick getaways from San Diego. The decor is super nice and some of the 2 bedrooms have a huge walk-in closet. Everything is immaculate and we love the location, just a mile or two from the heart of Palm Springs. We were just there and the first 3 days is... More

The Villa is a terrific place: Helpful staff; well-stocked rooms (master suite is loaded -- dishes, pots/pans, etc); CLEAN; cozy; and a BIG BANG for you dollars. Excellent location near grocery markets, and a 1.5 mile walk to downtown area! I HIGHLY recommend!

Very friendly staff. Upgrading rooms but the one I had wasn't upgraded yet. Kind of busy on the weekend but quiet during the week. Bike rental, small gym and ping pong tables. Walking distances to resturants. I enjoyed my stay.
