My husband, 17 year old son, and I stayed at the Vista Mirage from Oct. 7th to the12th. We really enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it to anyone traveling to Palm Springs.
We had a 2 bedroom condo at poolside. It was clean and well appointed and nice and quiet! Maybe a little too quiet for my son but perfect for my husband and me.
There is a full kitchen which was great for keeping snacks and cereal and cold drinks. We never cooked but certainly could have. The kitchen has everything you need and all of the dishes and utensils and pots and pans. There is a coffee maker as well. There are also 3 gas grills by the pool for cooking steaks or burgers.
There are 2 pools with plenty of chairs and surrounded by lemon, lime and grapefruit trees. There were so many fruits on the trees that I was surprised the limbs weren't hanging to the ground! Beautiful! There is also a hot tub beside the pool which was very nice at night.
The staff was very polite and friendly and helpful with any questions we had.
There is an exercise room with free weights (up to 20 lb. dumb bells) and a treadmill, recumbant bike and stair stepper. It needs a little updating but was better than nothing. An elyptical machine would be a nice addition.
They also have a place to shoot basketball, tennis courts and board games to loan out, which was great.
There were 2 tv's in the condo and a dvd player.
Make sure you take the tram ride up the San Jacinto mountains. It is the second steepest tram in the world and was alot of fun. Make sure you take a jacket or coat as it's about 30 degrees cooler at the top! There is a sncakbar and bar and restaurant at the top. There is a paved hiking trail. In the winter months there is snow shoeing and cross country skiing.
The Vista Mirage was the perfect relaxing getaway. Great place!
