The area is close to Downtown, with Palm Springs free bus only a block away and easy access to the main street for the rest of the valley. The staff is Excellent and , tho in the middle of...

We enjoyed the very spacious accommodations. Our two bedroom unit was huge. The bedrooms had extra large closets. We had a balcony and large kitchen. Plenty of room for the four of us. We did have a leaking roof in the upstairs bathroom and closet. The maintenance staff was prompt to cover the area of the roof with a tarp.

The staff has always been excellent, the grounds , Pools and spas very clean. It has a small gym with cardio equipment and a few weights. Two nice tennis courts...

We arrived at 10:00 pm and the lobby was closed. We followed the instructions on the wall and the night guard brought us our keys and a map. However, the property is dark and not that well marked, so he walked us to our room, which would have been pretty hard to find on our own. The first unit we...

Time share is very nice. Front desk and staff all excellent. Pool and jacuzzi were clean and heated. Good location for shopping and dining. Nice walking areas. There are 2 tennis courts,which were in great shape.Manhattan in the Desert restaurant is on the premise. Really great spot from everything from breakfast to dinner. I would come back here again.

Full Feature Resort. We especially appreciated our host, Assist GM, Ray White. He made our stay extra special with his knowledge of the resort, amenities and near by sites to see on our week visit. Thank you Ray, we appreciate what you do. Keep up the great guest services!

General grounds at this resort are pretty and well maintained. The units are clean. However, staff are rude and there is serious lack of security. The last thing you want on vacation is to feel unsafe. The front desk gave a man a key to our unit without verify his identity. We came home one evening to find him rummaging...

Spent the past week at this resort. Had two minor service calls and they were fixed in minutes. Above average unit. However, unlike many time sharing locations; there are no activities for guests. Pool and whirlpool was virtually outside our door. Convenient location to numerous desert activities.

If you don't care about the internet and telephone service ... then this place is probably good for you. For anyone who does care about that like me, wife, and mother-in-law ... it's just a bummer. All day long trying to connect to a bad internet service ... the service we all rely on more and more to stay in...

Upon arrival, staff person said we didn't have a reservation, then eventually found it. Privacy was violated during 2nd day at resort. Staff gave out unit key to someone unauthorized to be in our unit. Came back to resort to find a strange man in our unit. He had gone through all of our belongings, etc. Unable to get a...
