Check in was quick and easy and front desk staff were great. Rooms were spacious, clean and the beds are so comfortable. Décor of the room was very nice. My family had the two bedroom suite...very nice and excellent view from balcony. Will definitely come back to this resort.

I love the Marriott Desert Springs Villa's I. I stay once or twice a year at this property. The weather is perfect. The accommodations are beautiful. The sprinklers run at night. The water from the sprinklers will damage your car paint & windows to the extreme. The damage cannot be fixed by a detail or car wash. I had to... More

We have had many different villas and every one is well appointed, spacious, clean and beautiful.

The room had not been vacummed, the floors were disgusting - there were boxers and tooth brushes left in the bathroom floor.

We love this resort. This is our 4th time here and every time we have stayed in California we come here. The villas are clean, spacious, and feel like home. There are 7 pools to choose from to enjoy a cool dip or a lounge in the sun.

My family and I usually stay at a resort but thought we would try Desert Springs since it had so many activities.
