We recently stayed in Palm Desert at the JW for 5 nights for a family Spring break. The hotel had lots of family activites for a sports minded family. My husband and son played the 18 hole putting course each morning, we had lattes from Starbucks in the lobby each day, took a ride on the boat around the lake area and played with the motorized boats and they even played golf one afternoon after 3pm for the family special rate of $59 for an adult and the child plays free. The tennis facilities too with all of the outdoor games were awesome!! The pools were plentiful too. The only drawbacks were that the pool didn't have any water slides for kids and the guest room are small. The bathroom is fairly large but only had one sink. The bottom line is that you don't spend too much time in your room so I woudl definately stay here again.
