from the outside, this is a beige, bland stucco box that I believe was once condos. I wasn't expecting much when I checked in—there's a small central pool, bbq facilities and free bicycles. but when I entered my upper 2-bed, 2-bath unit, I couldn't believe my eyes. fantastic modern decor—lovely furniture, light desert-appropriate colors, photos of palm trees and Indian...

In early June I was invited to spend 4 days in Palm Springs with my college friends. They picked the place, in fact it was a time-share swap and met our budget. It was located right off the 111 with easy access to El Paseo, the River and downtown PS. Our villa had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, which was... More

We liked our stay here, make sure you stay in renovated room, our first room on the first night was not the greatest, noise from the street was constant (all night) ac made a racket, and although was clean, didn't "feel" clean? Anyway we mentioned our concerns to the lady upfront and she totally hooked us up with a renovated... More

We used timeshare points to stay here. It was very roomy for the two of us but would also have been fine for our family of five. The kitchen is well equipped and there are balconies off the bedrooms and the living room. In our case we had a fantastic view of the nearby mountains. The complex is in a... More

I stayed here with friends for a weekend of Coachella. I hadn't booked it but was pleasantly surprised by how clean the place was (I'm a bit of a germ-phobe usually) - I think for some reason I thought it was going to be like a motel. In any case, the staff (Millie) was very sweet and accommodating. It doesn't... More

Whenever we get a place through Interval International, I usually call ahead a month or so to make sure that the room we have reserved is an ADA unit. Nothing can spoil a vacation like a room not working for someone with mobility problems. I think this resort started out in life (the 70's) as a small apartment complex and... More

We stayed here for three days over the Easter weekend. Everything that you would expect was provided at our Villa. Clean, spacious, comfortable, and reasonably priced. The apartment was spotless and without defect, staff were pleasant and informative. We will definitely return in the future.

We just finished our stay at Desert Vacation villas and overall we were satisfied. The place is close to the airport but we were never bothered by the sound of planes. The street is not that busy so traffic sounds were never an issue. We had a renovated 2 bedroom 2 bathroom unit which we shared with another couple. I... More

Everything was great until we went to bed. The mattress was a cheap, lumpy nightmare. All of the other good things about the property--location, size of room, nice staff, etc--didn't matter at all because we were misrerable all night. A Motel 6 would have been a better choice.
