Best things about resort:
Close to the airport, and downtown. Grocery store, Starbucks, Subway, Carl's Jr, Rite Aid and various other stores/restaurants within a five minute walk. The library is about two blocks away, in case you need to use a computer (which I did). There is a Friday night reception, offering food and drinks, which I forgot about (next time). Saturday morning was a Continental breakfast, didn't do that either! Free Wi-Fi. Very gracious staff.
Best attractions or restaurants nearby:
The Palm Springs Tram, the Follies, Thursday night market, golfing, water park, and dozens of wonderful restaurants. We especially liked the Italian one next door to the Follies. Also, Copley's is fantastic. Rocky's Pizza will deliver.
Stayed here several years ago. Liked it so much I bought a week, as this is also a timeshare resort.. We stayed two nights in a downtown hotel, and went to check in here at 1100. I knew we were way too early, but the receptionist asked if I was an owner. When I said yes, he said they have a room ready. Asked for something close to the pool, and I got one, on a corner location. Right out front, there was a swingset/slide contraption which worked out well as my sister and her kids were stayng in Rancho Mirage, and came over to visit several times. We could hear the traffic on Ramon, but we weren't in the room that much, and with the doors closed, it was very quiet. They have two pools/spas, with plenty of chairs and loungers to go around. Also lots of shade. The front desk provides towels. Several gas grills are available to use, which we did twice. You are able to pick the fruit off the trees, if you can reach. Had grapefruit for breakfast one day. It would be nice if they provided a means to get the fruit down. (Had to jump to get it!). The kitchen/bathrooms had granite countertops, looked like new TVs in the LR and master BR. Definitely need new LR furniture. Very outdated, and uncomfortable. The beds were comfortable. Kitchen was fully equipped. The only problem we had was with the dishwasher. Loading the dishes one night, and the whole thing tipped out! Notified the front desk, and within 15 minutes someone was there to fix it. Whoever installed the countertops forgot to screw the dishwasher back in. AC worked like a champ. In fact, had to turn it off several times, as it got a little too cool. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The location to downtown can't be beat. Five minutes by car, and there is lots of free parking. The BF walked it one morning. Overall, I found nothing to dislike. Coming back in November, can't wait!
