Stayed here 7-14 Dec 12 with my wife. Positive - great location, units have a nice layout, great views from balcony, mid week house keeping and almost daily garbage collection, nice pool and hot tub, plenty of towels/soap etc, walk in closets, new appliances. Grounds are very well kept.
On the negative side, it's a bit dated. It appears upgrades have been done with the new appliances, granite counter tops and some upgraded finishings. The flooring, carpets, balcony carpet, tile, wood trim etc need upgrading right away. It is a clean resort however.
Check in was quick and we were given a 2nd floor golf course view unit as I had requested. The offer of gifts for a timeshare presentation was declined though they did call twice during the week to see if we had changed our mind - we hadn't. We didn't partake in any of the activities though they appeared to have a daily plan for kids and adults.
Overall, this is a nice resort with friendly staff in a good location but it needs updating. I give this resort 3 star quality off accommodations, so don't expect more than that rating offers. It was a great place to base our touring and golf outings in the Palm Springs area from.
