We have been owners here for several years and can absolutely recommend it for all ages and interests. Rooms are very nice, try for a double suite and if you are pool people, ask for the buildings across from the main pool. Two pools at that location; adults and kids, both large and the kids has many amenities such as slide and water fountains. Decent snack shack, good adult drinks. The hot tub is PERFECT at 7 am looking over the mountains.

Great golf; all levels. Great golf instructions and the club fitting is the best. I highly recommend the club fitting if considering new clubs. A good trip is the golf instruction package with club fitting and golf.

Lots of kid stuff in activities centers for yours or grandkids.

Only negative... The on site restaurant is not very good.

Room Tip: Get a fairway room (# 10) puts you across from the main pool but you won't have its noise. We l...

Was out there in September. It was hot but surprisingly not as hot as I thought it would be. This resort was great. We had a great two bedroom corner unit - it had everything you needed and more. Great view of the mountains. Best vacation in awhile. Loved the area. A lot of great restaurants. Great places to take in - Palm to Desert Hgwy,, Palm Spring Tram, Joshua Tree National Park.

We stay at Shadow Ridge every year when we come to town for our family getaway. Husband loves the golf course, and the kids are always content with the pool and the scheduled activities. Location is great because it's close to the city center in Palm Desert, but also close to the freeway if you plan on going to the outlets or Joshua Tree National Park.

We enjoyed the expansive room with wifi and 2 great televisions to watch our movies. Almost any location on this resort has great views and close proximity to various pools. The food at the grill was excellent and the service also. There were 2 pool tables in the bar area. Used by families not pool sharks. We played the Nick Faldo course, it was wonderful. They were very polite about my 15 pound, trained service animal. I was amazed at how well they dealt with the Americans with Disabilities act and they followed the protocol in a non-demeaning way. We will definitely go back for a visit.

Room Tip: Ask about the proximity to the pool that best suits your needs. For example there is a best pool fo...

Stayed here at least ten times, on golf trips. Always comfortable and friendly fast service for any needs. Nice pool area and activities if you have kids. Great golf at the Faldo course on site. On site grill restaurant , good food at a reasonable price. If your part of the interval time share, great price for the room. Will be back here again always a great time in Palm Springs

I love this brand from hotels to resorts. First class in all ways. Well done.
This resort-timeshare is spectacular. Why?? because it has the back drop of mountains and it is on "reclaimed desert". Get up early and look and photograph the mountains at sunrise..wow!
The apartments are fully equipped,free wifi, outdoor balcony; well controlled aircon.; clean; well maintained throughout; helpful staff and more!
The resort boasts a fantastic 18 hole Nick Faldo designed golf course..cheap to play from my experience.There are multiple pools and courts. It is really is beautifully laid out.
Kids are really well catered for.
Great for a family holiday and for golf groups.
Not cheap but you get a lot of resort.

And you are not far from Walmart, Costco ..within a few of kilometres.

Room Tip: we prefer "Ground level" for convenience and it is safer for toddlers.
