We stayed at DSV I a couple of weeks ago. We had never been to this property before and were very impressed. Our building (and most buildings I think) had a 8 units (sixteen counting the lockoffs) and they are located right on the fairway of the golf course. Our unit had nice views of the mountains as well. We were only in the suite part of the unit. The lockoff is accessed from a common door to the outside but is a separate unit. The suite was well appointed with a separate bedroom with a king bed and a lounge chair. It also has the bathtub and one of the bathroom sinks in the bedroom, kind of strange but we also had that at a different Marriott property. The living room had another lounge chair and a corner sofa unit with a sleeper in one section. There was also a nice flat screen tv with a DVD player (there were no instructions so it took me a minute to figure that the dvd was set for HDMI input 2). The property has a few pools. There is a large pool complex that has a couple of large hot tubs, a kiddy pool and 3 other pools. There was also a bar/snack stand that had OK food. There was a "quiet pool" a few buildings away from us and we went there several times. It was nice, but was overrun with ducks. There were cute until we saw the mess they made in the pool and on the deck. I wouldn't get in the water because of all the poop in it and you had to be pretty careful walking around. We found that being right on the golf course had a big downside. Before 7 every morning there was a crew out mowing or edging. That was pretty frustrating. The activity presentation they did on Monday morning was better than I expected. We got a good discount on a desert jeep tour. We went over to the JW to eat a couple of times, it was nice having the resort so close. DSV is pretty close to the commercial area of Palm Desert so there was shopping, eating and movies close by.
