We've never stayed in a better two bedroom condominium type room with a living room, dining area and full kitchen that was nicer than this. Situated on the golf course overlooking the mountains you are surrounded by beauty. Several very nice pools are available for use along with a gorgeous spa, and well stocked pro shop. The golf course was...

We decided to give Shadow Ridge a try, stayed at the Desert Villas on last visit a few years back, wasn't impressed. We own at Canyon Villas at Desert Ridge in Scottsdale, can't even come close in luxury & comfort. This visit was quite different, booked a week at Shadow Ridge this time, reservation was booked into the Villages in...

We love this hotel. We have been coming here for several years. The rooms are big & spacious. We love the littel kitchen area that make it easy in the morning to not rush out of the room to eat. They have great area to run outside for morning exercise around the golf course. They have a good Gym with...

Recently spent two days in Palm Springs at the Marriott Shadow Ridge. Had a great stay and really enjoyed the golf course. Typical high Marriott standards. The staff went out of their way to make everything nice.

A beautiful resort, very well maintained and staffed. The "hardscape" is inventive and a pleasure to view. Lovely pools and well equipped exercise facility. Lots of daily activities or walk on the new nature path. A great place in the desert!

I booked Shadow Ridge at the last minute for a business trip with little to no research. I was very pleasantly surprised upon arrival, the resort seems like new. The rooms were very comfortable and quite, I never heard a sound from the neighboring units. I've already recommended this resort to some of my golf playing buddies!

When you stay at Shadow Ridge, it's like a home away from home. The furnishings are lovely, the grounds beautiful, and the parking plentiful. If you're a golfer, the course and practice facilities are fantastic! If you're a family, the pools and activities are incredible.

We rented out 3 villas and was able to fit 17 people. Not much of a party scene when going into town but it was nice staying in and relaxing. It felt like our own apartment. It's 25-30 mins away to Palm Springs $16-20 Uber ride.
