So I was there for a birthday celebration. It was 6 women in a 2 bedroom condo. The condo wasn't bad but the beds were HORRIBLE! We all said that it felt like we slept on rocks (yes, even the sofa bed). The pool was a joke and too small. There was no shade anywhere. Would I stay there again..... More

We got a recently renovated room that was perfect for a family trip as we were able to cook all meals at home and everyone had their own TV with cable. The rooms are great, fully renovated apart from the cottage cheese walls and ceiling. The grounds are a bit of a let down. No real landscaping, just some sad... More

Was a very pleasant surprise. The staff were very nice. I saw some of the reviews that say it is bland inside and out, yes it is not fancy but very serviceable. We got the two bedroom suite. It came with a master with a king sized bed, TV with movie channels, balcony, second bedroom had two twin beds with... More

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
