“We will definately return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

We stayed November 6 and 7th for the last two nights of our vacation with our two teens. We loved the clean and spacious condo and found everything in perfect order. Just having your own washer and dryer within the unit is a rare find in Las Vegas resorts. It was so nice to have nothing but fresh clean laundry in our luggage for the flight back.

The front desk was very accomodating with special requests and a special thank-you to the gentleman who helped me print out our boarding passes at 5:00 AM! We used the family pool and the water was warm even on a cool day. The spa was also large and sparkling clean.

Two nice sized flat screen tv's were in our 1 bedroom unit and had a nice variety of channels for the whole family. Plenty of stores and restaurants and not far from the strip, we were completely happy with our stay. We were offered the timeshare tour for a free gift, but declined and I was happily surprised that we were not pressured beyond the one simple offer. Great stay - we look forward to returning!

Our family of 5 spent four nights in a 2 bedroom unit in early October. We chose this resort as we wanted accommodation that had a full kitchen, and we didn't want to stay on the strip with our kids. This was a fantastic choice! The pool has a waterfall which the kids absolutely loved. The hot tub was large and very warm. Had we had more time in Las Vegas, we definitely would have stayed here longer. The only downside was the lack of free wi-fi, but this seems to be a Vegas-wide problem. Obviously you aren't supposed to stay in touch with the outside world when you are in Las Vegas! We didn't use the shuttle to the strip as we had a car. The resort staff were all lovely, and there was only a little bit of selling to join their vacation club, but they are very nice when you refuse to go to the presentation. We have already recommended this resort to friends, and would definitely stay again when we are next in Las Vegas.

We arrive on Saturday & our room was ready, very large room fully equipped kitchen with nice balcony. The Walmart & Whole foods are your best best to find for grocery stores nearby. Very clean apartment . We were located near the pool. There are 2 pools, one for adults or family pool, each having their own hot tub and lounge chairs. There was always plenty of chairs available. Located on Decatur ave, you need a car to get around but all the hotel casinos offer free parking. The pool was very large with nice chairs and a fountain & spa. very private area with security. 5 minutes drive to the strip. WiFi is available with their computes or you can purchase time by day or week. Excellent service , they even let us stay until 8 pm using their services as our plane only left after 10 pm. Would definitely go back next time we go to Vegas.

Room Tip: we were on the 2nd floor which was not directly in front of the pool & we had no issues.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your recent stay here at Desert Paradise Resort. We were very pleased to read that our accommodations, amenities, customer service, and location met, if not exceeded your expectations.

For those who choose not to drive from our resort to the strip and back, we do provide complimentary scheduled shuttle service to and from the Mandalay Bay, New York/New York, and Treasure Island casinos. Our concierge desk would be happy to provide further details. Your recommendation of our resort is greatly appreciated.

Spent a week at the Desert Paradise and loved every minute of it! Clean, spacious and quiet. The sofa bed in the living room was just as comfortable as the king bed in the master bedroom and almost as large as it too! Never had such a good sleep on a sofa bed ever! Kids loved the pool area and the spray park. The unit had its own full size washer/dryer that was very handy. The fitness area was huge and had many options for working out. The only thing I wish that they would include is wifi with your stay. But that would not keep me away from staying again! Can't wait for our next trip back soon!!

We stayed here as part of a timeshare swap. The property is about 10mins outside the main strip, but cabs were reasonable.

There is not much around by foot, but the resort runs a free shuttle bus to the local supermarket, which was lovely.

The pool was great, with two separate pools. Water was so lovely and warm. BBQ's were around one of the pools, which you could use at any time. Complementary breakfast was provided in a little room and you could eat as much as you wanted.

The value we received for the price was the BEST ever; a large two-room apartment with a fully-fitted kitchenette (cooker with oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer combination, coffee maker, microwave oven, food blender etc). Plates, cutlery, glasses were also provided. A utility room with a washing machine and a drier was also very convenient. There was a huge TV with excellent reception (Pity American TV is so bad!) in the living room and one in the bedroom. The only downside was the noise from the ventilation system, which kept waking us up intermittently in the night, and the noise from the planes. Wi-fi costs approx. USD 7/day extra. The complex has two pools and an exercise room. HIGHLY recommendable, particularly if you remember to switch the A/C OFF at night.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms have no footstep noise from above.

We are really pleased that you chose to stay at the Desert Paradise resort, and that your stay here afforded you great value for money! We’re sorry that you were disturbed by the air conditioning unit in your apartment, though – we encourage guests to let us know if they have any concerns about their accommodation, as we would have been happy to arrange for our maintenance team to take a look at it.

We hope this didn’t spoil your stay here, and that you’ll consider us for future visits to Las Vegas – we’d love to see you again!
