I read the mixed reviews and we stayed here with some trepidation. Since this is a timeshare rather than a hotel we knew what to expect and what not to expect. This type of vacation is similar to staying in an condo apartment ...no maid service...do your laundry in the washer dryer in the room, cook if you like, etc. With that said, we would definitely stay here again!! We know that timeshares undergo renovations on a regular schedule so we called to insure that the room we would receive would be a "newly" renovated room. It was beautiful!! We had a one bedroom overlooking the mountains and enjoyed breakfast each morning on our terrace and ended each evening gazing out with a glass of wine.
The grounds are impeccable and there are multiple pool areas to accommodate adults and families with small children. The location is great to drive short distances to wonderful restaurants or go into Palm Springs and sightsee. We are not golfers but the course was well manicured and enticing
One suggestion is to do your own research on places to dine and places to go since the concierge seem much more focused on family and family fare restaurants rather than great local restaurants for couples or things to do that are not family focused
