I joined several college roommates in a weekend at Shadow Mountain Resort so we rented several rooms. At first sight, I was not all that impressed with the place. I arrived at night and it was dark and directions getting into the gate and to reception were not easily found. Once we checked in, it was great. The pool was nice and big, food was close by so we didn't even have to leave the pool for lunch. There was tennis, and golf right there. The rooms are all individually owned (I believe) so decorated differently. Ask for a 'nice' place to be sure you get the better quality decor. The staff was very helpful and friendly but we did not have wi-fi in our room (some do if you ask for it.) It wasn't a huge problem though because you can get wi-fi at the pool, lobby, or snack bar (just steps from my room). Another great thing about this place was the location - short walk to El Paseo with great shopping and restaurants. Close to Palm Desert shopping and the wild animal park. Although i had reservations at first sight, this place was clean, quiet, friendly, cozy, and had all the amenities we needed or wanted. We plan to come back next year with more roommates!
