Just to preface this review, please keep in mind that we are frequent travelers and we often come out to the desert to visit for weekends all year round.
We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel in August 2005 and had booked through priceline. To me, this is no resort; it is not even a pretty building, to boot. When we arrived at the hotel, it looked like a giant, gray and depressed elephant hulking in the sand.
To add to the depression, the front office had a mandatory "resort" fee--no mention of which at the time of booking, which I found completely unethical and deceptive.
Everything about this hotel could use a facelift--the lobby is VERY dated and gloomy as was the room we stayed in...
The breakfast buffet is average--it is like a continental breakfast plus a bit more.
On the positive side, however (to be fair), we came here to play by the pool--and my kids had a terrific time. The rooms, although dated, are clean and spacious. Plenty of clean towels at the pool, too.
I wouldn't stay here again; the building itself just doesn't have the right vibe for my taste.
