My husband and I planned this trip for some romantic R&R in the sun. Mother Nature didn't fully cooperate unfortunately. We arrived at M.V. a little after 4:00 on a Saturday. There is no vallet or a driveway access to the registration area, but there was a small parking lot very close. Check in was quick and the gal who helped us was very nice and helpful (we asked lots of questions). We had a 1 bedroom unit, second floor, facing the pool and mountain. We really liked the view from our room! The parking lot is underground and gated, your room cardkey opens the gate. There are luggage trollies around, so look near both elevators if you don't see any when taking your stuff up to your room. Our room was very large, two sinks, two toliets, shower, a large tub, walk in closet, and two balconies. The bed was comfortable. Upon first glance the room looked very nice and clean. A much closer inspection revealed some areas where things could have been upgraded or replaced. The kitchen was quite dated but clean and functional. All of our applicances worked just fine and we did not have any water damage in our room. The coffee cups are small, like China cups, so I wish I had brought a mug from home. We only had one frying pan but called the front desk and within 5 minutes we had 2 more. We shopped at the Von's about a mile down on Ramon/Sunrise. We joined the shopper rewards program and saved $. We used the woodburning fire place 3 nights and they brought us the log and lit it for us ($5 charge for each log) We also used the heated pool and hot tub each night and found both to be clean and fully functional. Loved looked at the stars from the hot tub! The staff was really nice and tried very hard to help us with all requests. The resorts location is excellent. We walked the few blocks into downtown each night for dinner/drinks. We ate at Los Caleas, good food,drinks and entertainment. We ate at California Pizza Kitchen,good food and drinks and at Kalura Tattora (so/so food and cramped dining room). We went to Palm Desert one day and ate at the Tommy Bahama Cafe, good food. The street it's on, El Paseo has a lot of high end shopping. We really enjoyed our tour of Joshua Tree National Park and the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway (great views at both).
We really enjoyed Palm Springs and although Marquis Villas is in need of renovating, it did not detract from our romantic getaway in any way.
