I spent 5 nights at this property with two other friends for a golf getaway. We stayed in a second floor villa and found the living arrangements to meet our needs because one of us slept on the sofa in the living area.
This villa was clean and everything was in good working order. I stayed in the separate bed room suite which overlooked the parking lot but I wasn't troubled by outside noise at night as some others had reported.
One of my friends had previous experiences staying at this property and he used this expertise to place us in a villa away from the center of the complex with a great mountain view. We had no problem with lugging our belongings up the stairs to our villa.
I used the free Internet in the main office each day without difficulty.
We played the Valley course at the resort but this course wasn't nearly as nice as either of the two courses at the Indian Wells Golf Resort which is within easy driving distance from this property.
We were told that we could play one hour of tennis each day at the tennis complex that serves the Marriott Hotel with no additional cost but found out that this was only true on weekdays. We paid $24 for one hour on Saturday. I'd clarify this issue if you are interested in playing tennis while at this property.
I certainly understand why other reviewers had varied opinions about the views out of their assigned villas. They all overlook one of the two golf courses but not all of them have excellent views of the mountains like the one my friend chose for us to stay in. The lack of an elevator would make a second floor unit choice troublesome for some. I was not at all bothered by the age of this facility but this could be "deal breaker" for others.
