My husband and I have stayed here for several years, trading our time share property for this location. The best thing about the villa are the larger units that have the king size beds - there are also smaller units with queen beds that can be joined to the larger units creating a two bed room (I think they call them "lock-outs" since they can be rented separately). The larger rooms are over 800 square feet with a full kitchen and feel more like a condo. The a/c works very well and the ceiling fans are utterly silent. The beds are comfortable.
The property is very lovely. Ask for an upstairs unit if stairs don't bother you in a building directly next to the golf course, ie. not set back. The views over the course and up into the Santa Rosa mountains are great from the decks.
The grills work well. The workout room has been updated recently.
Definately rent a car and see the area. The Thursday night street fair in Palm Springs and the weekend morning "flea market" at the College of the Desert in Palm Desert are a must. Also, there are great restaurants, and shops.
The only negatives we have experienced were having a hard time getting housekeeping to bring extra towels (they only clean once during a week stay), and the onsite restaurant is nothing to write home about.
