We stayed in a two bedroom condo through a friend's timeshare. Yes, it is a timeshare place so expect to be "hounded" slightly at check in by their sales staff (it's their job to do that, so bare with them... they were all nice, and accepted our decline rather graciously). We were there to enjoy a relaxing summer weekend with our family, poolside. And we did exactly that. TIP: Get down to the pool at 8:00AM (when they open) to reserve your spots/chairs with some towels. This was the best tip I got from past reviews. They sell arm floaties, rafts, etc., for a very reasonable price (cheaper than Target, Walmart) and will blow them up for you too (cash only). The staff is very nice. Heavy on security, but for good reason. It's a family friendly place... extra eyes are always a good thing. Drinks at the bar were reasonable. Cheaper than most resorts, but average to your local bar. There are several pool closures throughout the day. They close the pool and waterslides, but you are welcome to stay on the deck while they skim the pool and allow the lifeguards a break. This is also a great time to get the kids out of the water, re-sunblocked, fed, hydrated, and a quick potty break. The condo was HUGE. The decor could use an upgrade, but it's clean and still nice looking. The matress situation should be addressed though. The master bedroom matress was in terrible shape, with a sunken middle section (terrible sleep), the couch bed was incredibly uncomfortable (better to sleep on the floor in an air matress). All rooms should have cieling fan options. It gets very hot at night in the bedrooms, even with the AC on. I appreciated the utensils, and dishes that were available for use (you just have to wash, dry and restock cabinets before check out.) The housekeeping thing was odd to me, but then again... it's a timeshare place so I guess that is the norm. You will need to dump your own trash cans, and the only dumpster onsite is in the parking garage. Not a huge fan of that aspect but small price to pay for such a great stay, overall. We will definitely be back here. The waterslides are great, and the little kid slide was perfect for our 5 and under crowd! Great family place. Not very close to the main attractions in Palm Springs but definitely driving/cab distance. As long as you keep in mind that this is a time share place, and their rules are a bit different than those of other hotels and such, you'll have a great time.
