We had a fantastic week in our beautifully updated one bedroom villa! We were very comfortable...full kitchen...great bed in master and living room pullout! Plenty of room for a family of 4 (2 boys 10 and 13) with 1200 sq feet. We used the BBQ one night over looking the golf course....awesome! Pools were nice but crowded(spring break). We mostly ate dinner out...in palm desert and at a few of the nice restaurants at neighborly JW Marriott(who had awesome Easter bunny parachuting onto front lawn Easter egg hunt to meet 100s of kiddos)! Loved food at Rockwood!
Also, Marriott does a great job of NOT charging all the misc fees....ie no Internet, resort or parking fees. Great! But note, as a timeshare condo we did not have housekeeping( or room service) You can pay extra if you want it.
In terms of service, Petra, Delores and Cristina at registration. went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. And Nellie, the concierge, helped me successfully map out all the fun excursions I wanted...she was a big help. Thank you all!! We enjoyed WW2 airplane museum in Palm Springs, climbing incredible rocks at Joshua Tree(felt like we were on mars!), and Indian Canyons! Recommend them all!! The desert offered much more than we thought it would! We would highly recommend staying at the Marriott desert springs villas!!
