“Great vacation”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We were greeted warmly when we arrived. They had our rooms at the ready. We thought a two bedroom villa meant two bedrooms in the same location, but there was an extra door and key for the extra room so that you could open it up inside for a '2 bedroom' but still have extra privacy for the bedroom and their own entrance when they wanted it. We were on the ground floor and had our own patio when we wanted to be outside on it (with it being 119 degrees that was only once). The market was nice to have nearby for the times we wanted snacks. The rooms were spacious, well done, and a huge bathroom to boot. This was a great experience and we will be back.

This a nice resort. The pools are great and salted which is a good thing. There is a good café/bar at the main pool which is reasonably priced and has good menu choices.
The two bedroom lock off we had was just redone so it smelled new and was well done
Near good restaurants and Ralphs

Room Tip: The Jasmine suites are quieter and near a smaller pool area and fitness center

We had a great time, DJ at the pool and the place was kicking. I wish it wasn't so darn hot but hey, what did I expect; it's the desert. We had a great time and met really cool people. The resort is huge. She is a place to relax at the quiet pools but the main pool had a lot of activity too if you want it.

I was very pleased with my recent stay at this property. We were in building 619 near the rear of the spacious resort. We had a postcard like view of the 13th hole of the on-site golf course with wonderful mountain views in the background. In typical Marriott Vacation Club style the room was fully equipped and ideally sized for my wife and I to enjoy some couple time together. We were in a one bedroom unit but there was more than enough room with the included sleeper sofa to accommodate two more adults. The bedroom and the bathroom took up almost half of the available square footage of the unit. My wife and i are big fans of huge bathrooms. Desert Villas II doesn't disappoint in this area. Another nice feature was a separate utility are which housed the washer and dryer. The television system included the NFL Network and multiple HBO options. Free wi-fi was available throughout the resort with two flat screens in the unit. The resort offered a free shuttle service to transport residents throughout. On onsite Interval International (II) representative provided a very informative II brief. The staff was friendly and helpful. There was not a complimentary midweek touch up service provided. There were ample pool and hot tub options. One of the pools was for adults only.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the resort are picturesque and quiet

As usual, nothing short of fantastic when staying here. Our room was ready upon arrival at Noon, 2bedroom unit was clean and ready for use. We had a nice room, 2801 bldg 419 overlooking the quiet pool. Except for two couples using the pool at 2am, which security handled immediately, everything was quiet and relaxing. The front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. Since we are owners at the Shadow Ridge we are familiar with Marriotts hospitality and look forward our stays out here in the desert. Another wonderful stay and looking forward to returning in December.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the newly refurbished rooms

The prices can't be beat in the summer. Even thought it's hot, it's still wonderful and you can spend lots of time in the poo! The villas are nicely decorated, large with a full kitchen large bathroom (and big tub!), large balcony with 2 flat screen TVs. The bed is very comfortable too. The Palmeras Pool has 2 big pools, bar/grill and occasionally have live music/DJs. You can walk to the hotel (if it's not too hot) and enjoy the restaurants and shops there. CAUTION: They have more villas on Jasmine Ct. Unfortunately they are not nearly as nice (same layout), doesn't have the upgraded granite countertops and nice draperies. Not as clean either. You can't walk to the hotel and their pool doesn't have the bar/grill. I always be sure to tell them that I don't want to be put on Jasmine Ct. They are very accommodating!

When we entered the villa we were taken aback what an amazing place,spacious luxurious and everything we needed to make our stay memorable. The staff always willing to help always smiling. We had travelled from Wales in the UK but it was well worth it. The pools were were great and not to full,the shuttle bus was a great extra you could travel to the main hotel take a small boat to the restaurants and the prices were very good. My 1st time in America and i could not have stayed at a nicer place.
