My best friend and I specifically chose the Shadow Ridge Lodge for our overnight stay, as I have been a Marriott Rewards member for many years. I make my reservations, confident that I will be receiving a quality room at a fair rate. The grounds of the Villages are immaculate, and the roads are well-maintained. We booked a two-room suite,...

This is our favorite place in the desert. We have been meeting as a family for over 10 years at this resort. It combines pool, golf and restaurants in one location. It is a timeshare resort and can be crowded at the pool. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. There is a restaurant for lunch, bar on site, but... More

We just turned from another great week at Shadow Ridge. It really is one if the best places for kids in the entire area. Activities all day. From free bingo to stuff a toy. There are movies running all day in a regular movie theater. They even provide free popcorn. There are also wine tasting and other events for the... More

I stayed in a 2 bedroom lockoff. That means one of the rooms was a studio with a king bed and a pull out sofa, with a mini fridge and sink. The other was a 1 bedroom apartment. Since I had both, we unlocked the door separating the rooms and had a 2 bedroom apartment. The kitchen in the main... More

My family (two kids ages 6 and 2) traveled with the Herold family (two kids ages 3 and 5). We stayed in the two bedroom villa. The room was large and nicely appointed. The pools, grounds, and staff were very nice. The kids enjoyed the slide and the splash pads. I highly recommend this resort to families looking for some... More

We joined friends at Shadow Ridge Villages for a long weekend over 4th of July. We were very comfortable in a two-room suite, with 4 adults and 4 kids. The room was well-appointed and spacious. We were near the pools, in building 1300. The location was perfect. We were on the first floor, but could not hear our upstairs neighbors... More

This place is all about the golf and since I don't golf ( not well anyway ) I felt a little left out. The configuration of the rooms is typical. You have a one bedroom base, and add a lockout to get to 2 bedrooms. The problem is that the one bedrooms rent easily and you get left with a... More

In August 2016, I used my interval platinum membership to do a short stay at this hotel with a friend of mine and both of our kids for the weekend. Horrible mistake. I would never think that such a pristine line of hotels such as the Marriott would have bedbugs. After staying at the hotel for three days me and... More
