“Relax and enjoy”
Reviewed March 28, 2010

I had the most relaxing 4 days ever. I rented a unit listed on royalevacationrentals.com. It was emaculate and quiet. Legacy Villa is new and very well maintained. There is a gym and large ornate common area or "office" as my guy called it.
It is located near PS and we had no problem finding the place. Nice location for a walk too.
After a day of relaxing by the pool and lounging in the hammocks we drove est. 45 min away to Pappy and Harriet's for a red-neck western evening. Awesome.

The Legacy Villas at the La Quinta Resort is a beautiful place to stay and to live. Travelers should know that the LV are related to the La Quinta Resort, but are not part of it like the core hotel and the Spa Villas.

Many units are owned by full-time or seasonal residents, and others by long-distance owners. Everyone has access to the excellent clubhouse and pool area, which includes gas grills, a lap pool, a modern fitness center and a large pool area with fountains, cabanas and a play area for kids. There are 10 other small pools around the complex, so you are never very far from taking a dip. The location itself is stunning, built abutting the mountain and with lots of lush greenery and palm trees. Within 15 minute drives are whatever you might need, from Trader Joe's to excellent restaurants to shopping at the Paseo.

People booking the LV as a short-term or overnight guest through the La Quinta Resort should know that the hotel is a very short drive from the main hotel grounds but isn't a particularly great walk down the street. I suspect that several reviewers may have been unaware that the LV are physically separate from the Resort and are quite different from it. I would not recommend the LV as an apples-to-apples equal for the resort experience, though you'll find the same high-quality sheets, furniture and design, and pay-per-view channels. For example, the smallest rooms at LV are lock-off rooms-- subdivisions of a larger, 2 or 3 bedroom unit. The walls and doors between the rooms are not up to hotel standards because they're really designed as interior walls and doors.

People who arrive at the LV outside of the La Quinta Resort typically rent from owners or agents in the area who pool owners, and rent either the 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom or detached 3 bedroom condos. These units are not managed by the Resort and each is directly responsible for their own tenants, but all are well-designed, feature modern kitchen and baths and either patio or terrace space.

My husband, 3 year old and I stayed at the Legacy Villas this past weekend (June) and had a great time - we will definitely be going back. We booked a 1 bedroom villa with full kitchen, dining room and living area with a fold out couch. My son slept on the pull out. I booked directly with Bill Wilson - (--------------) and got a great rate - $125 a night plus $50 cleaning fee. There was a locked box outside our villa with the key and he sent us all the instructions that made arrival really easy. This is not a hotel situation, so don't expect to go to a check in desk.
The villas was beautiful and spacious and super clean. Kitchen is fully stocked with cooking supplies, new appliances and plenty of room.
The grounds are gorgeous, just like at the La Quinta resort. 10 pools scattered around the grounds but we liked the main pool - there was a lot more shade and it had more for kids to do.
The gym was great - very modern with individual tvs on the cardio machines.
We were planning on going over to the hotel to spend some time but the Legacy villas had everything we needed. I have stayed at the hotel before and I think the villas are a lot nicer - much newer and of course more room.
There is no food or room service on site, so if you want the hotel experience stay elsewhere. For a family I think the villas are fabulous. We made our own breakfast and there are plenty of take out places and restaurants very close by, so we didnt miss the on-site restaurants at all.

I recently stayed in a 3BR/3BA condo in Legacy Villas with 4 other friends for the Coachella Music Festival. The condo was very clean, modern and spacious. It was nicely appointed with linens, top notch appliances and very comfy beds.The unit we stayed in a huge patio and gas grill. The photos we viewed ahead of time did not do the place justice at all, so we were not expecting much but it was really beautiful. The grounds are very well kept and there were 3 pools within a very short walk. It was short 10 min drive to the Polo Grounds (about 5 mi) and very close to shops & restaurants. I will definately be staying there next year for Coachella.

The Legacy Villas are very nice and the pools are great for young children. However, we were not happy with the unit that we rented. The management company failed to tell us that the lock box was hidden and it took us 30 minutes to locate it. We tried contacting the management company when we arrived, after initially realizing the lock box was not attached to the door or anywhere visible, but they were gone since it was a Friday and only an answering service took a message for us. The villa was nice enough, but it lacked many things. First of all, after the first day we ran out of paper towels in the kitchen and then toilet paper and tissue in one of the bathrooms and there was no extras anywhere in the unit. Secondly, since we were traveling with children, we stayed in the until for most meals and the kitchen was poorly stocked. Lots of plates and glassware, but lacking some basic kitchen essentials if you are planning to actually cook a meal. Also, it said that there were BBQs on the property for use, but after a long search, we gave up and cooked our food inside. Even though the property was nice, our trip was tainted by all the little irritating things that kept popping up. I would probably stay here again, but not the same unit or management company.

We stayed three nigths at the Legacy Villas with another couple and 2 young kids. The rooms (aka condos aka villas) are very nice. 1700ft2, 3bed/3bath, newly furnished with full kitchens. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with many pools and fountains. Nothing bad can be said about the grounds or rooms. The only negative is that you are seperate from the main La Quinta Resort and Spa. It's about a 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk, but you definitely leave the Resort property to go the Legacy Villas. There is no on-site restuarant, bar, tennis, or spa at the Legacy villas. All are at the main resort.

So, if you're ok staying away from the resort and using your own kitchen, you'll love it. If you're looking for the resort/hotel experience, it is not for you...

We just spent Thanksgiving weekend at the Legacy Villas in La Quinta with friends. We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo with our friends (rented thru a private owner www.laquintavillas.com). The condo was clean, beautiful, comfortable, and everything seemed new.

The Legacy Villas are right next to a beautiful mountain which my husband and kids hiked to the top of. The complex has multiple pools, and my kids enjoyed the main pool & spa the most. We spent hours there each day.

I could go on and on about how lovely and amazing our stay was, but I will close by saying how I can't wait to go back to the Legacy Villas for another vacation with our friends.
