“Good hotel & resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

A good hotel & resort.
The Buildings are a little dated. The A/C unit is quite noisy.
The staff are friendly, nice & helpful.
Good value for money. Stayed in a king luxury room. Nicely appointed.
Will stay here again.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel, and would stay here again.
This is not a 5 star resort, so don't expect that and you will be happy. I was here on the American Express Fine Hotels program, I received a rate, $100 hotel credit, and complementary breakfast.
All the hotels I have stayed at thru this program have been top notched, world class hotels.

Check was "fine", not great, but, fine. You drive your car to the back of the facade to your motel like architecture.
The room was nice and spacious, the grounds are nice, the service was nice, everything was nice.
If you want a five star experience, five star service, five star dinning, you will not find it here.

If you want , a small boutique feel with a mostly adult clientele, nice mountain views, with a relaxed atmosphere , you found your hotel.

I will return with a more realistic expectation.

We had a wonderful 4 nights at the Miramonte. We went the last week of September and almost felt like we had the place to ourselves! Our only complaint was that we booked thru Expedia, and when we arrived the front desk tried to give us another room that was not at all what we had booked and paid for thru Expedia. But once we talked about it and expressed our concern they gave us what we were expecting and had paid for without any arguing or guilt trips or anything. But we had to 'stick to our guns' a little bit.
The Miramonte is farther east so if you are planning to go into Palm Springs or go to the Tram, etc. it's about a 20 minute drive but we didn't mind at all. The drive is easy, the road is wide, and there are things to see along the way.
One thing we really really were impressed with was the food. We ate in the restaurant twice (once for lunch and once for dinner) and we had breakfast brought up three times. Everything was absolutely fantastic out-of-this-world good. Really amazing.
The gym is nice and has lots of equipment, open 24 hours. My wife enjoyed a nice massage at the Spa one afternoon.

Room Tip: Upstairs overlooking the 'adults only' pool. Get a 'full' deck and eat breakfast ou...

we were there during the off-season so the property was very quiet and we enjoyed using the fitness center and thought the dinner was very good. The creme brulee could be a little creamier and the top wasn't quite as carmelized as we would have liked.

This hotel is absolutely a hidden gem! We stay at this hotel several times a year. From the minute you drive up to the entrance, you are warmly greeted by the bellman as you enter the hotel. Since we stay quite often, the front desk attendants greet us by name, making you feel truly special. The rooms are large and have been recently updated. The grounds are maintained beautifully. You can even find hammocks near your room, where you can relax with a good book, or even take a nap! The hotel is quiet compared to some of the larger hotels. The quality of the food is outstanding also. You will even notice the herb gardens on the grounds, used to prepare the delicious food. A must try for breakfast are the blueberry pancakes! The pool is large with plenty of comfy chairs and umbrellas. We've experienced excellent service and friendly servers at the pool and in the resturants. El Paseo District is near by with lots of high end shopping and also restaurants. We reccommend this hotel for a relaxing and romantic trip.

Room Tip: Luxury rooms are excellent. We always request a ground floor for the garden patio, and also like r...

Beautiful Tuscan villa-style resort in the desert. We just stayed this past weekend with some other couples and loved the clean landscaped grounds.
The pool was nice, but pretty dead this weekend, so not much service.
If you're looking for relaxation- this is a great place, but not much nightlife or casual dining available within the resort.
We had room service one morning and the eggs were mushy and cold, and the hash browns pretty bad as well.
The cafe was decent food but pretty pricey for casual dining.
There is a free shuttle that will take guests within a 5 mile radius so make sure to inquire.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable and we had one with a view of the garden area.
Casitas at the pool are def. not worth the $140 charge- no frig, no tv, etc..
The hotel pool towels are ridiculously small too.

Room Tip: Some rooms have couches, some a tub or huge showers. All are same price but have different amenities...

The Miramonte hotel in Indian Wells is a jewel in the desert, very much in keeping with the cool and shiny town of Indian Wells, where it is located. The Miramonte is a compound, made up of various two-floor Italianate villas, each with its own name, some around the big pool, others scattered on lawns in a lovely garden. The rooms are huge--mine was one of the largest I have seen and all include a sitting-room area and a small veranda. The double bed was in the same proportion and double curtains on the windows guaranteed privacy and coolness of the room. The compound is very peaceful, far away from the traffic of Highway 111. If you stay near the pool, however, you will be near some noise once out of the room.

The pool is a chapter aside. Huge and heated, it was relief from the unforgivable heat of an August sun in the desert. Families, children, couples all "marinated" while servers went by carrying trays with drinks for those on the chairs. Towels are provided, of course. The restaurant and its adjacent bar serve good food and the breakfast, should you choose to have it there is hearty. Although I don't remember its full price, a full, Continental breakfast is a bit pricey, but that is only one of the options.

The Miramonte is close to El Paseo, the fashionable street of Indian Wells, although not at walking distance, and only a short drive from The River (ten minutes), if you want restaurants and an animated evening. Given its neighborhood and its comforts, the Miramonte is more than reasonably priced ($105 in August during the Labor Day weekend). Go there. It will be a memorable holiday. Anna.

Room Tip: Try to stay as close to the main pool as possible and, if you can, rent one of the cabins outside fo...
