This was our annual summer week at my dad's time share at the Marriott In Palm Desert. The unit 1 units are spacious and beautiful. You will be hard pressed to find such luxurious accommodations anywhere. And there are shuttles to and from the hotel, although we walked. The units are fully stocked with everything you need but the food... More

We have stayed here lots of times before; living in England the wonderful scenery and dry heat that the desert offers is quite mind blowing!! We love the appartments - spacious and attractively kitted out with a full kitchen if you have the full apartment and/or mini kitchen on the lock off side. It's lovely to sit and enjoy breakfast...

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. The problem is you do not feel like you are on vacation when you have to wash dishes and go grocery shopping if you stay in a villa. The other problem we had was that we had to... More

First time I have stayed at a property designed as a time share resort. Prices were comparable to hotel rates. Had two bedroom unit which was very nice, full kitchen, all utensils including dishware and cookware , each bedroom had full bathroom including separate showers. More like a small condo instead of large hotel room. The property is spread out... More

Stayed in a 1brm villa on second floor, corner room, next to pool. Very nice, family of 4, with 2 teenage boys. The sofa is a hide a bed, kinda hard, but Boys didn't complain. Large living room, kitchen, dining area and master bedroom. Balcony had beautiful view. Would definitely recommend.

I love the villas in this resort. Each is near a pool. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed, with a full kitchen, containing everything one needs, the two bedroom villas have a bedroom on either side of a large living room with patio, so their can be togetherness and privacy too. The master suite has a large soaking tub.... More
