Reviewed January 8, 2013

My husband and I have been coming to Westin Mission Hills Villas for several weeks in March, each year since it opened. We have been consistently thrilled with the villas, the staff, the management, the entire resort! Everyone goes out of their way to accommodate their guests and the property is always impeccable and welcoming. Can't wait to return each year.

Stayed: March 2012, traveled with friends

Somehow I had expected more form a Westin. The rooms advertised as "deluxe villas" were in fact motel style small condos, stacked two on top of each other, 20 besides each other, townhouse style. I am sure you can get nicer ones facing the walkway/ green space but ours were RCI AeroPlan exchanges and they put you in the crappiest one, as AeroPlan needs to maximize their own profits. Decent pool. Good golf course location, decent restaurant. As stated nothing "wow" but certainly not bad. Average. Hence the three stars only. Oh yes, then they dinged me the $15/day parking fee and the wifi went down on the last day. A Westin resort milling their management fee, trying for 4 or 5 star luxury. Try harder, please !

Room Tip: Ask for a south facing room facing the walkway or golf course. Avoid the ones by the road.

I just got back from a stay at the Westin Villas (not the hotel, don't confuse the two). The villas are a short drive down the street from the hotel, but share the hotel's amenities and are a very short walk down the path (or if you prefer you can get a ride in one of the "shuttles" - i.e. golf carts, that roam the path).

We rented a deluxe (? I think that was the name) villa - it had a king bed and queen pullout sofa bed. It was a very nice room, pretty much the standard amenities you would see in a Westin hotel - Heavenly Bed, dual shower heads in the shower. This one had dual sinks, a separate tub, etc. The villas have a pretty full sized kitchen if you are so inclined. We weren't, but it was nice having a fridge to store beer and milk for breakfast. There was also a washer and dryer, which we used.

We were initially put in villa 4806, which, while nice, didn't have a very great view as it overlooked the pool house (so, no view of the pool, just the back of the poolhouse). Since it wasn't too busy, we asked to get moved, and they were nice enough to do so, into villa 4604, which was much nicer - it was right off the path, overlooking the golf course, with nice views of the mountains.

The main pool was nice enough, and there was a smaller pool right next to our villa, with a hot tub.

Overall everything we saw was very clean and kept tidy. Not like the bad reviews we read about the hotel. Given that the price was only a bit more than the hotel, and we got so much more space, we were very glad we chose the villas.

The resort is in a decent location - not too far from the village of Palm Springs if you want to go into dinner, but far enough away you get the "desert resort" feel.

If I were coming back to Palm Springs, I would definitely return to the villas.

Room Tip: 4604 is good, 4806 is not

What amazed us was the service. We were having lunch and a waiter named Ricardo served us. Not only was it the best service we have had anywhere in a long time, it ends up it was his first day and he was training!!! Bravo. He needs to be the trainer.

We showed up tired and hungry and were anxious to get moved into our villa. Alex and Bayron went out of their way to make sure our accomodations were top notch and that all of our move-in requirements were handled quickly and efficiently. they helped make our stay at Westin Mission Hills Villas a wonderful experience

Well maintained, clean, good service and the off season rates were very reasonable (booked on internet). The unit we had backed onto the golf course so having morning coffee on the covered deck was a treat. The resort is full service and a close walk or shuttle to the Westin Hotel which has a restaurant and seperate lounge.

What a nice surprise. The suite was very nice with everything you needed in the kitchen. The grounds are lovely, with ponds and ducks. The pool is heated and open until midnight, with a ping ping table, pool table and water slide. The staff was very attentive. I just wish our trip was longer.
