We rented a 2 bedroom villa . Location was great - so close to El Paseo shopping/dining area that we walked to dinner most nights and had fabulous experiences at all the restaurants. Villa was full unit with kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, patio, semi-private pool. Had our own gas grill on back deck which we used several times. Kitchen...

Very Well maintained property. Friendly, helpful management and staff. From check in front desk staff, to housekeeping, gardeners, maintenance, tennis personel and Cafe personel everyone has a natural friendliness and always willing to help. All contribute to an excellent vacation experience. On site fitness class such as Pilates, Yoga, stretch class would be a wonderful addition.

The rooms was pretty nice. I would also probably not get a room with the kitchen and lounging area together again. They do have 1 bedrooms. Housekeeping was very good. The tennis instruction was good. But if you don't call ahead to book your tennis there might not be any slots left. Our only problem was that the last nite...

Hi there, Thank you for completing a review of the resort. Sounds like there were a couple mishaps, however. We had an unplanned power outage in the neighborhood that SCE controlled and repaired, and our cafe music was off schedule...oops! I'm glad your tennis was good, our pros are quite busy most days in season. Please feel free to contact...

Spent 2 days with no reservations. Found the best price on TripAdvisor. I was traveling with my daughter who plays high school tennis. She fit in perfectly with Kerwin the tennis director. He took GREAT care to give her private lessons and got her into his high school tennis program. The pool was great. Thanks Kerwin!!!

One of the best and largest pools in the greater Palm Springs area. Love the history behind the resort as well. I like being there in off season when there aren't as many people. It is a lot of fun having a pool that size all to yourself. The staff is very helpful and kind. It is a great Staycation...

Ahhh Staycation, that about says it all. Thank you for staying with us here at the resort. You most likely know that the huge pool was built in 1946. We have a few photos on our website. We love the history too, and the fact that many visit to create their own memories. Look forward to seeing you back again!

If you love tennis, this is your place. The pool is nice too. Best of all, this is a SUPER kid friendly place. And better yet, the staff is fantastic---some of the friendliest and happiest I've ever encountered. Sure, the buildings may be a little older, but the charm and "function" of the resort makes up for that.

We so appreciate your mention of our friendly staff, many have been with us for a couple decades, in fact. That it the greatest compliment! Families are welcome here, and there's plenty of room for all ages to swim, play tennis and just lounge. Hope you can make it back again soon.

We stayed here a few days last month. It is a beautiful place to stay. The grounds are immaculate. The only thing they could improve on is the walking trails...they don't connect. The rooms are high quality and easy to access and the views from the balcony are amazing with the mountains in the west.
