I stayed at the villas with my wife and 2 year old for 9 nights in March 2007. The resort really suited our needs, in that it was big (1 mile long) with plenty of activities (2 playgorunds,putting green, tennis and 5 swimming pools). We stayed in a premium villa second floor, which was furnished and equiped to a very high standard(microwave, large oven, dish washer, washing machine, dryer, large fridge, BBQ, dvd player and tv in living room and bedroom).My only small gripe would be the sheets on the bed were not 100% combed cotton and that the maids did miss one entire day of villa cleaning that was paid for, but in general we found the staff to be pleasant and helpful.
We ate in the Lounge Bar area of the hotel on two ocassions and had rooms service a couple of times during our stay and found the food to be acceptable and not outstanding .
There is a WallMart just about 1 mile away from the hotel, but I would highly recommend a trip to 'Bristol Farms' supermarket (at edge of Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert) if you are going to do any form of self catering.
We found the rancho mirage / palm springs area suited our needs .On the cloudy days we could go to the Childrens Museum (Brilliant for Kids) or Shopping (Outlets in Cabazon 40 min drive or Paseo for High Street Shopping only 10 mins drive). The Pool and Playgrounds were reserved for the more sunny days / afternoons. I never got to play either of the two golf courses, but maybe next time. Hope this review helps. by theway when they say 4 pm check-in , they really do mean 4pm or after.
