We stayed in unit #2 of the property and loved the location. What we didn't love was the 120 degree heat and our 90 degree room-oops the air conditioning was broken. We arrived really late (around 11:00pm) so there was no one to tell, but hey, 90 feels cool compared to 120, right? The next morning the courteous and helpful... More

My two kids, wife and I had never been too California before and it's always a little scary not knowing where your going and if the hotel is going to be nice and safe. Our plane was going to get in late so my wife called ahead to see what the procedure was. They had us all set up. There... More

My wife and I planned an anniversary stay in palm Springs and I made a reservation a few weeks ago for this Memorial weekend. We were supposed to check-in on May 23 for two nights. When the hotel manager called on Friday (one day before the trip) I thought he was calling to ask if I wanted to order champagne... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom villa, very nice indeed. Excellent staff, well maintained property but getting close to looking a little tired? Quiet location and would come back again. Must pay tribute to the house cleaner for whom nothing was too much trouble.

Lovely hotel - perhaps a tiny bit out of the way for the area where all the restaurants and bars are, but it's only a few minutes by car or a very do-able walk to get there, and there are shops and restaurants along the route. The villa we had was spacious, comfy, and to quite a high spec with... More

My husband and I actually stayed here for Coachella last year--of all things. We were invited to go last minute, and of course, all the hotels were booked! There was one room left at the Desert Isle and I am so glad we snagged it. The condo was fabulous, spacious, and exactly what we needed. The kitchen is huge and... More

Fantastic facilities at a great price, might not quite be the right place for a solo traveller like myself - was quite overkill, but would definitely bring the family back here. Several pools and spas to choose from. Decent location, but you will need car/taxi to get places. Everything was great, but the staff were a bit odd and not... More
