This was our third time at Shadow Ridge. My big bugbear, after many years at the Westin Mission Hills, is that the Bareques are communal and involve a good hike from most units, rather than being on our own balcony. They are also older units that take 20 minutes to heat up and they cool down in 5 minutes. The lighting is also lousy. This may seem a small thing, but when you are alone trying to do justice to a nice Prime cut with a very sub-prime barbecue and are away from the unit for 40 minutes to cook a steak, it gets to you after a while. The rooms are pretty good. We have had o bedroom and lock offs and they are both not bad, of their types. Certainly the lock offs are a huge amount better than thos at the Marriott Desert Springs.
We booked a room close to the adult pool and got a middle floor room in the 2800 block, very close by. The check in clerk was keen to point ths out and we were very pleased. What was not pointed it was that 2 days later thy closed it for maintenance and the next pool was a fair hike away. Nice humour, but not my style.
