“What an unexpected Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

First, I am not an RVer but stayed here in a 2 bedroom villa. I'd always thought that RV parks were campgrounds but this was a luxurious resort! The RV's park there were amazing. The Resort had beautiful mature landscaping and trees, State-of-the-art fitness center, 2 pools/3spas, golf putting greens,billiards room, beautiful clubhouse and conveniently located. I wanted to take a quick trip to Palm Desert to visit with my girlfriend and her family. I found the villa listing on VBRO and thought it looked nice.

My visit was over the Fourth of July holiday and the Resort had a number or events happening. Although I don't have children my friends does and we all enjoyed the pool. We barbecued at my villa and indulged in the Resorts "Make Your Own Sundae" event. There was a small fee for my friends to visit but they had such a good time. The Resort is family friendly from May through October and then becomes a "Snowbird" destination.

I would highly recommend staying at Emerald Desert. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The Resort was beautiful and although the villas are dated they are very nice and provide all your vacation needs (linens, towels, dishes, etc.).
