“After Christmas Get Away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We exchanged into the townhouse rental thru RCI. We stayed in a single level unit about 12 years ago. Nothing much has changed. The staff is very courteous and helpful. It kinda sucks that check in is after 4 PM and check out is before 10 AM - you lose a whole day - and that there is an $8 per day fee for internet (most of the time it was weak) and for the access gate remote.
The unit was clean and comfortable - the carpets could use a good cleaning - the beds were comfortable too. The pool is heated and there is a jacuzzi hot tub next to it. Community BBQ is a bit of a drag. Fairly close to grocery stores and restaurants. Three 9 hole golf courses on site with reasonable green fees. I would come back again.

We traveled to Indio for a quiet extended weekend. Our accommodations were excellent. The staff was friendly as well. Our apartment size condo was very clean with comfortable bedding. I would definitely come again and recommend this place. Very quiet. It's about a half hour to East of Palm Springs.

Nice apartment type suite. Pleasant surroundings. My husband really enjoyed everything about it since he wanted a peaceful and relaxing trip. His only problem was that there was no place to eat breakfast on the resort --even though we were told there was.

Room Tip: Our room was close to the pool even though we never used it. That was nice if we would have wanted...

Green Features: The resort showed that they were trying to be green in their reminders to re-use towels, etc.

we are RCI customers who traded into Indian Palms Vacation Club at Indio for a one week stay Sunday to Sunday. Unit is in the process of being upgraded, so next time will be different. Towel exchange Tue and Thurs by maid service who came to our door. Pool was clean. Parking was on the other side of cinderblock half wall in an unlighted lot. Nearby units seemed to be apartments or non vacation units. Did not golf or eat at the onsite restaurant. Grocery, car wash, bank, restaurants nearby. $8 nightly resort fee for non-members (ie.RCI) which covers wifi, dvd movies,parking, etc. Laundry facilities are not in the unit, but near pool. $1 wash/.75 dry in newer machines. This is a gated community, transponders provided to operate gates. Authorization of $150 for each transponder.

This is a fabulous place to stay. Close to all amenities and about half an hour from Palm Springs. The two floor apartments are well kitted out and the staff are great. We had two minor problems both of which were sorted in about 5 minutes. Our room was right opposite the pool which was hardly used by anyone else. Very secure and easy to drive around. Can find nothing to complain about at all. Good value but nowhere to eat but I knew that when I booked. Dozens of eateries about a 2 minute drive away. A car is essential here. Highly recommended and will stay again. Not sure about the golf as we do not play.

The grounds were very nice. The staff was great when problems arose but could not solve Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) not available on the TV choices. Our #1 TV viewing channel is EWTN, really stymied our vacation. Sneezing and eyes burning called for maintenance to check the AC filter, scary, scary, scary. Other maintenance issues: Newspaper dispenser did not work, sink stopper did not allow H2O to drain in upstairs bathroom, safety strips in tub needed, oven light not working, radio did not work, would be nice to have radios in bedrooms and one downstairs. With radio not working & TV signal died our cozy time in the unit was stymied again, so the only thing to do was to go swimming.

We have stayed in the same unit during the first week of May for the past two years and have been very comfortable both times. The kitchen is fairly well equipped, although we ate out most nights, and the grill at the pool very handy. The beds very comfortable and bedding was nice. The unit was clean and had newer furniture this year but the living room,could use an additional chair since there were four of us. Everyone we had contact with was very friendly and helpful, no issues with the AC or any other appliance. We plan to return next year.
