Great weekend getaway

My family and I spent a weekend at this resort and loved it. The grounds are well kept and the rooms are clean and come fully equipped with everything you may need to prepare a meal. The property has several pools and they were all clean and we’ll kept. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

2 couples booked a 2 bdrm villa using Chase Points. We chose Palm Springs because we found direct, cheap flights to LA from our hometown and wanted to get away from the Ohio grey winter. The grounds and property were beautiful and located in a very nice part of Palm Desert. We'd never been to Palm Springs, so we were happy that we choose the swankier Palm Desert after visiting Palm Springs. They have very distinct "feels" to them, so research the difference when deciding where to stay. Check-in was seamless, even though it was slightly before check-in time. When we made it to our villaso we were surprised to find that our villa was in the "Jasmine Court" section, which was not part of the main campus. It could only be accessed by exiting the main campus and re-entering through another gate. The upside of being in the Jasmine section is that it was much quieter and more adult-oriented than the main section. The biggest downside is that it also lacked a restaurant/bar and/or poolside waiters, which are an indulgence I look forward to when I visit a resort. Had the Jasmine Court villas been included as one of the regular stops on the shuttle, it would have been ideal for us. Sadly, it wasn't. While the front desk clerk said that she'd call for a shuttle to pick us up, we opted to just drive when we wanted to eat at the on-site restaurant or visit the main pool. The villa itself was one of the nicer ones I've stayed in, and I used to be a Westin timeshare owner. There was no elevator, if that's a concern for you, but parking is very convenient. Our lanais were spacious and nicely shaded and overlooked the pool area. The rooms were also spacious with a ton of windows and natural light. I wish we could have spent more time on the lanai. The kitchen was typical timeshare in that they supply basic cookware, but no spices, etc. Having a fridge and microwave/stove was nice. Having a washer/dryer was also great because it allowed us to pack much lighter and only pay for one baggage fee on the airline. The beds were very comfortable. The only minor complaint is that the USB port for powering phones didn't work, so we had to use the adapter we brought. The entire unit looked recently updated and was very clean. Bathrooms were fine and equipped with a hair dryer. The pool was nicely landscaped and quiet enough to read. Tons of available chairs when we visited in February, so that was nice not to have to fight over chairs. There was a lot of debris floating in the water, so it could use some more attention. The hot tub also needed a good cleaning. It was awesome to be able to sink into a tub after the sun set and the temperature dropped significantly, but note that my husband's suit was bleached of most of its color. We did not golf. We visited the main pool in order to grab lunch and drinks one day. It was very, very crowded and took 45 minutes to get our lunch served. There were a ton of families there with their kids, so we skedaddled after lunch back to our quiet pool. Food was typical resort food. Good but expensive. I was disappointed that they didn't over any of my favorite resort blender drinks, but I understand after seeing the line to get drinks. FYI, there were tons of good restaurants a short distance away. We tried to Uber one night, but after 25 minutes of waiting, we finally canceled and drove ourselves. You might consider booking asking the clerk to call you a taxi if you don't want to drive. All in all, it was a beautiful property and a great winter getaway. The staff was universally nice. And no one pestered me to buy a timeshare. :) TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Wonderful Desert Retreat

Marriott's Desert Springs Villas 2 is a typically beautiful Marriott property. The Villas weave in and out of the two championship golf courses there, and along with the mountains around Palm Springs, assure you a great view. In addition to the golf courses, there are tennis courts on site (hard court, clay and even grass!) There are three different pools around Desert Springs 2, and a few more a neighboring Desert Springs 1. Also, on property, is a spectacular JW Marriott hotel, with several great restaurants and bars. The entire complex is also very convenient to shopping, restaurants and other Palm Springs attractions. We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa, that was so nice, we didn't want to leave. We look forward to coming back. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Mostly good news..except...

This is our second visit, the large villas are dated. The kitchen chairs are very heavy and almost impossible to move, The hot water is slow, after 30 seconds no problem, No hand sprayer for rinsing dishes. There is a parsons table, but no desk for those who require one. The main problem were the filthy carpets, after walking on them for a while the soles of your white socks will be filthy and black. We complained, they came to clean the carpets, which remained dirty. We received a compensation of $50. Despite all the nuances, the rooms are comfortable and the view of the golf course and mountains is breathtaking. The pools are beautiful, as are the spectacular grounds, Flowers and trees. There are activities throughout the day, and almost nightly a social of some sort for the adults to mingle. So it is easy meet folks from all over Canada and the USA. All in all a good experience, we plan to return but we will remind housekeeping to shampoo the carpets before our arrival. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
loved it . . but . . .

We have been long time Marriott timeshare owners and love coming to Desert Villas. We especially enjoy the Villas I but when that's booked, it's fine to come to Villas II also. We only have one complaint: with water scarcity in the area and in S. CA in general, it's a shame it takes For-Ever to get any hot water coming out of the sink and shower taps. For a large resort like this, a circulating system should be installed which would deliver hot water to the taps in short order. I cringed to see gallons of wasted water going down the tap just to make showering or washing dishes with warm water happen. Perhaps the cost of a circulating system doesn't make sense financially. I don't know. But water is such a valuable resource, it is painful to see it just going into the sewer system. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
