This was our second visit to Desert Ridge on a golf package, and both trips have been wonderful. The service is wonderful in the hotel and restaurants. The room is luxurious, the pool is fantastic, and the golf course perfectly manicured. We will be back.

We stayed at the Marriott canyon villas next door, but we're able to use the facilities at Desert Ridge. The pool area is very relaxing with the lazy river to just float around on.

This resort and conference center is a terrific destination venue - whether you want to play golf, just chill out, or be an active participant in a major conference. The facilities are great, the food is better, and the staff are incredibly professional and customer-oriented.

We spent an early June weekend at this resort and really liked it.
