We spent 5 nights in a one bedroom premium villa and absolutely loved it.
The villa was huge and had everything from a fully equipped kitchen, dining table, gas fire place (which would be lovely in winter), separate living area, nice bedroom with comfy bed, massive bathroom with 2 sinks, great shower and a big bath tub to a balcony. We didn’t really use the latter as it was between 104F and 110F during our stay. Thankfully the A/C kept the villa nice and cool. After travelling for over 4 weeks we also loved having our own washing machine and dryer. Everything was perfectly clean and we never heard a peep from other guests.
The resort itself is beautiful and we enjoyed the 24 hour pool and fitness center.
Palm Desert itself has a very relaxed atmosphere and we also liked the abundance of (grocery) stores such as Costco, Target, Walmart, Bristol Farms etc. The Living Desert was fun (if a little hot) and we also enjoyed the Aerial Tramway in Palm Springs.
From now on Palm Desert is a must-stop on our future trips to the US (great place to relax towards the end of a trip) and can’t wait to return to the Desert Willow Villas!
