My family stayed at the Desert Villas 2 for our spring break 2013. All aspects of the resort are well done however there are areas that you use some updating. Orange carpeting, furniture wear, shower door wear, etc. I will add that the resort lobby bar, including the sushi bar is awesome! The sushi is truly some of the best we have had! The staff work very hard and are so friendly and fun!! Our waitress Vanessa rocks!! The only thing missing frim the lobby bar area is music. A small band playing in the corner would add a lot! We also ate at 2 on site restaurants as well and they were good, not great, and fairly spendy. The pool area is fun and lively, with folks of all ages. One thing to keep in mind is villas 2 guests are technically not allowed to use the pool which in my mind is ludicrous. We had friends staying at the actual hotel so we were able to make it work but not without some planning. Overall, a great place to stay in such a beautiful part of the country! We will definitely return!
