I stayed at the Esmeralda resort for 4 nights and had a wonderful experience. We were upgraded to a corner suite which made the stay even more comfy! We enjoyed the large pool every day and had lunch there as well. The staff was very friendly and the food was yummy!For dinner we would drive a short 15 minutes or...

We stayed for 5 nights in July for a conference. The hotel is in a scenic location with golf courses and lakes surrounding it. We had a lot of luggage so we drove right up and had immediate help in unloading it, and then self-parked the car. Check in was quick and we were given an upgraded corner room. The...

We came this past weekend with our kids for a 2 night vacation. Times have been tough in this economy, but after a raving review we decided this would be the perfect place for our little vacation. The resort is beautiful, the pool is awesome, the room more than adequately met our needs and for the most part the service...

We have been staying at the Esmeralda for over 10 years and it always manages to maintain the property. We always stay in a corner kimg and the upgrade is worth it. Unfortunately we were in the farthest room from the front of house and it was quite noisy during Spring Break which goes well into April. Suggest staying away...

When you need a great place to Escape but are limited on time, the Greater Palms Springs area is my first choice. Its close enough to get to quickly, yet this desert oasis gives you the feeling that your hundreds of miles away. The Renaissance is the perfect blend of low key luxury without the stuffy attitude. It has just...

We stayed here for the weekend for my 20 year high school reunion. It was literally 125 degrees and my 9 month old was with us so we didn't *really* get to experience much outside of the hotel. We weren't able to use the pool because it was just way too hot out. But it sure looked beautiful from our...

We stayed 3 nights on the golf, spa, and breakfast package. The staff at the golf course, spa and Cava restaurant were all helpful and attentive. The golf course staff went out of their way to be helpful. We ate Cava and the Sushi bar. All the food was excellent especially the Esmeralda roll at the Sushi Bar. We enjoyed...

I've stayed in most of the resorts in the area for various Coachella adventures but rarely come around during other times of the year. However my partner had a conference here and I tagged along, with visions of quiet days relaxing by the pool, sumptuous meals and restful sleep. Driving in, there was no signage telling us where to find...

I have stayed in several of the resorts in the Palm Desert/La Quinta area. This was my first stay at the Renaissance Esmeralda.
