The room was relatively okay, comfy beds and good airco however the bathroom already showed some signs of wear out. During our stay in August the place was packed with people during the weekend (mostly couples without kids and large families) and there was no spot left at the pool. Loud music was constantly playing so eventually we left the... More

I have been to this hotel several times. The trend seems to be you can't separate the kids from the couples trying to relax at the pool of where the bar is centally located without a splash or toy slapping you. The bartenders were fantastic but couldn't work fast enough for the crowd. I was just leaving my room and... More

Midweek stay - not crowded, very few kids. A beautiful resort. The pool is lovely - towel service, bar/food service, water and ice stations, cabanas, plenty of lounge chairs with sun and shade options. Tip: sit behind the waterfall to get sun and stay cool! Excellent staff - kudos to Karina at the front desk. Superb customer service. Oh, Pixie... More

We stayed here for a weekend get away with family. We had 3 rooms and very much loved our stay. The rooms were clean, modern and quiet, The swimming pool is huge and has a gorgeous mountain view. The swimming pool reminded me of the pools at Hawaii resorts and the many palm trees added to the tropical feeling. We... More

My husband and I just got back from a quick trip to Indian Wells. I have stayed at the Renaissance several times with my girlfriends but this was my husband's first time. From the minute we parked our car, every staff member we encountered from the bell hops to the check in staff to the bartenders at the pool was... More

Stayed the night at this resort. We rented a cabana by the pool. This was the best thing we could have done to stay out of the searing sun. We had a small and beach in front of our cabana. Unfortunately, the sand was searing hot. The pool was cool and refreshing. The deepest it gets is 4 feet. Only... More

Was able to grab a deal thru Marriott.com including breakfast buffet (quite decent especially with the juice bar) for 4 probably due to scorching heat in the middle of summer (average 105 degree everyday we were there). Very nice property. A tad old but well maintained by the staff. $30 resort fees a bit steep but at least it covers... More

First time we've stayed here was paradise. We were in love with the property. It was for 4th of July and besides the pool being filled with dirty and food leftovers from the holiday I guess it was a nice stay. So we decided to come back, and then, the nightmare begin. Only if I knew I would have stay... More

Nice hotel in a relaxing area, we stayed for 3 nights for some downtime in a busy holiday. The hotel grounds and interiors are well maintained ,rooms feel bigger than some other similar properties and the fridge in each is very welcome. The air conditioning was very sluggish in the rooms despite being on the lowest though the lobby and... More
