“Here or the Strip?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This is not an hotel but for the price of a bed in one of the resort hotels on the strip on special offer you can stay in one of their apartments. It’s a mile or so off the strip and is palatial – big bedroom, living area, fully equipped kitchen, washing stuff. Basically they are selling their timeshare apartments (beware, they will seek to inveigle you into a two hour presentation for which you are guaranteed tickets to a show, free buffets etc etc. While they try and sell you an interest in their property portfolio. Unless you feel that you might like to buy one, don’t go. You get nothing for nothing in this life.)

Honestly, this Diamond Resort is fabulous. The photos on the website really do it no justice compared to what you'll find. We stayed here for my wife's birthday week... The staff found out and made sure she was given the extra nice treatment (chocolate). The location is a tad further from the strip than I imagined. Don't plan to walk. A shuttle is provided on most days but you have to sign up for take-off and pick-up. The beds, pillows, and sheets HAVE to be mentioned. Have you ever slept on a cloud? You will here. We had a great 7 days.

We recently stayed here and enjoyed it very much. The unit had a fully equipped kitchen and a laundry room. The CEO of Diamond Resorts stands behind their resorts and the cleanliness of the rooms and I have to state that I did check even under the bed and the top of the refrigerator and everything is spotless. The furniture is very comfortable and makes for a great stay. There are two pools, one family pool and one adult pool, also Jacuzzis at each one and a water play area for the kids. There are BBQs available for your use near the adult pool.

The resort is away from the strip but an easy drive or they have a free shuttle that runs to the strip on various days. There is shopping close by and a short drive to a Walmart and Sam's Club. There are restaurants near by or a short drive to others.

Everyone working there was very helpful and always wanting to meet our needs.

We do plan on staying there again and highly recommend this resort, especially if you want to relax and/or have kids traveling with you.

Room Tip: If you have trouble climbing stairs then request a first floor unit. We like to be close to the pool...

This was our second stay at the Desert Paradise Resort. The staff is friendly and go out of their way to be accommodating. The units are spacious and clean. This resort is a worthwhile alternative to staying on the strip. It is quite, a short drive to all attractions and casinos, the adult pool is a relaxing escape, and the fully equipped kitchen gives you the option of eating breakfast in your room. We were able to actually relax by the pool without servers trying to peddle 25.00 cocktails and adults consuming far to much alcohol. Will continue to return to this resort.

From friendly and courteous check in through a fast and simple check out, everything was perfect. We had a fully equipped and furnished one bedroom condo just under 1000 sq. ft. For 10 days. In suite laundry, covered parking, adult and family pools, kids splash area, games room, guest lounge, concierge, free shuttles to strip and shopping, and much, much more.

Clean and recently updated. This is a time share facility that also allows rentals. There is no obligation to attend anything to stay. No pressure, no guilt, nothing.

We were impressed enough that we elected to purchase.

Room Tip: Not a single bad room in the place. Available as one or two bedroom units.

We stayed in a two-bedroom unit during our week's stay at Las Vegas and we most impressed. We had apartment 240 (in Block 10) which was on the upper floor and very well appointed with huge comfortable beds, walk-in closets and large flat-screen TVs in both bedrooms. The kitchen had all the necessary appliances (except a kettle) and there was a utility room with washing machine and dryer. The only downside for this particular apartment was that the balcony area to the rear was completely overshadowed by a large tree which prevented any sunlight getting into the balcony - a minor point, since we didn't spend that much time on the balcony.

There are two linked pool areas providing two large pools, a spa pool, children's pool and a small children's play area with water features. There are ample sun loungers and gazebos with tables and chairs if you prefer the shade. Several BBQs are also situated near one of the pools.

WiFi is available in the main reception area and there are two PCs and a printed in a separate room just off reception.

The resort is only a five minute drive to The Strip but there is a courtesy coach available for those who don't wish to drive. Within a few minutes walk from the resort, there are two shopping areas with a well-stocked Walgreen's Pharmacy/Supermarket and several restaurants (including Denny's and Starbucks) for breakfasts and other meals of the day.

The staff were always very helpful and I would not hesitate to return here if visiting Las Vegas again.

We stayed in a 1-bedroom unit in February 2013. We were very pleased with the place. It was very roomy, with a well-designed kitchen, a large living/dining area and roomy bedroom. It was very well equipped and had lots of closet/storage space.
The bed was very comfortable.
There was a very well-equipped games room including a pool table, foosball, games tables, etc.
The pools were beautiful, but were never busy during the time that we were there - but it was in the low season, so shouldn't have expected anything different.
There is good access to the Strip (it took about 5 minutes to drive there) but far enough away from it that it was very quiet and restful. Access to most other attractions in the Las Vegas area was very good.
Checking in and out went very smoothly.
Overall, we were very pleased with the place and would definitely consider it on our next trip to Las Vegas.
