We had stayed at the neighboring Westin property a short time ago but wanted a bigger room with more amenities, thus the stay at the Villas. We were not disappointed. Unit 31 is one of the few with an elevator, and we specifically asked for a second floor unit for quiet, which was achieved. Good A/C that is quiet, nice kitchenette, and comfortable living room. Our stay was only for a full day and we never moved the car for the two nights at the resort.

Excellent meals at Season's Grill and Pinzimini restaurant. Both wine and food were reasonably priced. However, they do need to learn how to make a caesar salad as a few leafs of romaine with some dressing doesn't cut it for the price. The staff is terrific from the time of check in (Alex) to the servers at Pinzimini (Victor and Tal) who made the meals enjoyable.

Great place to stay. Not much of a pool person but it is a great area to bask in.

Room Tip: Highly recommend a second floor unit to eliminate noise from the floor above.

First I have to say I had reservations about staying here from the reviews. We are staying here now with our 17 yr old son and another couple. We both had deluxe one bdrms, when we got here upon check in we were upgraded to the premium room. I asked if our friends could be attached to us (2 bdrm) and they were very accommodating. So far it's been a nice stay we are right next to the pool but do not hear the pool noise which is great! Had a bathroom issue but was taken care of within 5 min of calling the front desk. Looking forward to the rest of our stay.

Friendly staff, good/clean amenities and overall child friendly resort.
Kids will be very happy at this resort...water slide, cabanas, kids pool, cafe by pool, organized activities by the pool, mini-golf, etc. Not enough umbrellas and lounge chairs by the pool so you are better off getting a cabana on a super hot day. They are much more reasonably priced here than at other nearby resorts.
The rooms are clean and comfortable. The larger 1 bedrooms have a BBQ grill right on the balcony/patio. More BBQ grills available throughout resort. Not too far from The River, El Paseo, Children's Museum, but about 30 min. from Palm Springs.
I would recommend this for families with kids from babies to teens. I would not recommend this for couples trying to have a romantic or relaxing weekend.

Room Tip: Try to book larger 1 bedroom it has many more amenities than the smaller one.

I never write reviews, but Lana is hands down the best bartender ever! $12 for bottomless mimosas? Ya, count me in. She was personable, fun and made us feel like we wanted to stay an extra night or two! Thanks for the great conversation.

My wife and stayed here for a week May. We chose the villas for the convenience of a kitchenette and a bbq. We do not like to eat out every night and this afforded us the opportunity to cook in. The facility was immaculate. Every corner of the property was constantly being groomed. The golf course was in perfect condition. My wife marveled at the spa. The resort is only minutes from many shopping and dining options. The one resort restaurant we tried was excellent for breakfast, lunch and dinner with something on the menu for everyone. We definitely plan to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a main floor villa to save the stairs.

Just got back last night from a great weekend at the The Westin Mission Hills Resort Villas. The Front Desk Team was exceptional - from the moment my family and I arrived to check in - what a welcoming experience to be greeted by Vitaliy Foux, the Villa Front Office Manager, Alejandro Sanchez and Jacob! Maria was so helpful on the phone with making the cabana reservations. She answered all my questions patiently and returned my phone calls promptly. I love Christina's energy - always smiling and always there to help. I agree with the other villa guest - Christina loves her job and it shows!! Vitaliy has done a great job with his team members - you definitely made our stay a pleasant experience - we are definiteyl coming back! Thanks Vitaliy!

I would also like to commend Carla, Cache, Teresa who were our A+ cabana servers and of course your "sun shop" team members - Steven and Elizabeth.

Thanks again for a great weekend - we can't wait to stay at your resort again.

A great hotel to relax. I particularly enjoyed the quietness of my room and the relaxing atmosphere of the environment. I really enjoyed the products and soaps left in the bathroom to use and the different pools the hotel has to offer especially the one with a tobogan.

Room Tip: Any room some distance from any pool will be perfect
