I recently stayed two nights at the resort for a work conference.
The resort itself it very large and covers a lot of area with multiple pools, golf, a lake area, spa, etc. The grounds are very pretty.
I had a standard room with a King bed. Initially I was assigned a room that basically looked at a wall. I asked to be changed and the front desk was nice enough to reassign me to a room that looked over the putting green. The view was definitely better, but was right over the main bar area. Be aware that if you have any issues with noise, you may not want one of the rooms that overlook the lobby atrium - there was definitely quite a bit of noise from the bar each night. It didn't bother me though I noticed it. Keep that in mind.
The room was nice enough and good sized. Mine had a king bed, a couch and coffee table, desk, credenza with TV (which rotated so you could see it from bed or couch). The room also had a balcony with two chairs and a table. There was a closet in the hall which included a safe and iron. The bath was also large with a separate tub and shower; single sink if it matters to you. The room also included a coffee/tea maker which I always appreciate. The only somewhat negative comment I have about the room is that I think it could benefit from updating or sprucing up. It seemed just a bit dated. Functionally no complaints, but just not as pretty as it could be.
Service was generally great. Everyone was very friendly.
I did have the opportunity to us the fitness center which was, again, quite large with many machines. I also was able to try the spa for a facial. The spa was big and I very much enjoyed my facial.
The conference facilities were pretty standard though I have to say the conference food was among the best I have had.
If you are planning a trip to the desert, definitely consider this resort. A very comfortable stay with a lot of amenities.
