    We LOVE our renovated two bedroom villa at Embarc Palm Desert. Our son and his girlfriend are with us and we are all so comfy. The proximity to the gorgeous pool is absolutely perfect. My ONLY complaint is the sporadic hot water in the showers....More

    This is indeed a first class club both as far as service and accommodation is concerned. BUT if you do not like smoke when using your outside patio you are forced to move indoors which is not really why you do to the desert,More

    Not really around this location. It's an easy walk to golf course and to grocery store but that's it. Closer to downtown Palm Springs might get you more of what you seem to want.
