We had a fantastic weekend at the Marriott resort to celebrate Mother's Day. The 2 bedroom unit we rented was clean and spacious and had everything we needed. We had 4 young kids with us and there's plenty of space inside for them to run in. The views outside were spectacular surrounded by mountains, trees, green grass and a golf... More

The rooms are large and well designed. Very roomy with lots of storage and drawer space. Easy to keep tidy for a week. The grounds are lovely. Very spread out. Large balcony. Well manicured lawns and gardens. Mountain views. Rooms have safes and housekeeping does a great job. Units very clean and when we needed more hangars, they brought the... More

Check-in time is 4:00 p.m., and in all the years we have been staying here, they have rarely, if ever, permitted us to check-in before that time. It is suggested that you do not even bother arriving before the 4:00 p.m. time, because it is unlikely you will check-in. They are very good about placing you in the building/floor where... More

I stay frequently at Marriott hotels, be aware that your Gold or Platinum status does not hold any influence with a Marriott Vacation Clubs. We decided to stay at the Marriott Villas in Palm Desert for a long weekend. Although the reservation confirmation that you receive highlights your status, it does not at the property. We arrived early at the... More

This was our first trip to Palm Desert and we were mesmerized by the beautiful warm surroundings. The second floor villa we stayed in was small but cozy and overlooked a little man-made pond just outside of our balcony. We enjoyed the ducks and other birds living there. There were plenty of covered parking spaces adjacent to our unit. The... More

The Place is very scenic and of course nicely maintained by Mariott. Liked it !!! Had gone for a family get together with kids ranging from 8-14 years of age. Only concern was no outdoor activity for kids except swimming. As the resort has large open area mainly for golf course. Play areas are really required.Overall a good property.

To be fair, when I booked this room, I thought I was getting a one bedroom. Only upon checking in did I find out it was a studio. So no "real" kitchen or living room. Just a microwave, coffee pot, and small table and chairs. They did give us a nice room with a view of the golf course though,... More

The resort is getting older and needs a few touch-ups but, overall, it's a great place to stay. What makes this resort appealing is it's affiliation with the JW Marriott Hotel, three to five minutes walking distance. The golf course is administered by the hotel and surrounds the Desert Springs Villas, making it very convenient. The golf course was immaculate,... More

I have owned a timeshare at this location since 1999. I have paid yearly maintenance fees which have doubled since that time. I did everything I was instructed to do in order to book my week for next year, but notwithstanding I was up trying to phone in and to book online, by the time someone responded, all eight minutes...

Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to hear that you were having challenges with reserving your ownership stay. As quickly as inventory can be booked at a resort during peak seasons, inventory can periodically be released by owners who decide to change their vacation plans. Please email us at customer.care@vacationclub.com with your preferred method of contact and include... More

Spent the first two weeks of February at this wonderful place. We booked a suite on the 2nd floor of a two storey villa, overlooking the lovely pool. Very nicely appointed rooms, spacious and very clean and well stocked for cooking in the suite if desired. We did this a few times, using the bbq provided outside next to the... More
