The staff at the school where I work attended a CUE conference in Palm Springs Recently. Originally we were going to stay in an average hotel but one of the staff members suggested Marriott's. What an amazing difference! The suites were superb, the service excellent, the grounds meticulous - complete with a walking trail! I would highly recommend this place.

We planned our trip to see the tennis tournament. When we were on the hotel property it was first class all the way. Great pools, golf course and terrific tennis courts all at a steep discount when staying there. We will come back as often as possible.

We checked in after waiting for three hours for our room to be disappointed with the room location and size of room. Apparently we are treated differently because we are not timeshare owners. This is definitely not a $300 per night room! I have stayed at Marriotts before, this is just not the same quality. We were told we had...

They are the typical timeshare resort. The check-in has a line many things do not go well and overheard a lot of complaining. But our rooms were fine and the kitchen well appointed. Wish it wasn't so hot as it was difficult to be outside after noon. If you like the big resort and too many people give it a...

We stayed 3 weeks here and enjoyed every minute of it. The Villages are conveniently located to Palm Desert businesses and attractions, yet removed. The villas are richly appointed, spacious and well maintained. We will stay here again on any future trips to the Palm Springs area.

This well maintained,extensive time share property can be rented as a hotel room as we did. If you go for a weekend, be sure to check out the champagne and macroons get together on Sat. afternoon ( we missed it) or the pancakes on Sunday morning. The downside is the short day with arrivals only after 4 p.m. and checkout...

My wife & I are owners at Shadow Ridge and have visited here each year for 10 years! Marriott keeps the villas updated through reserve fund fees which are part of annual dues. The location and weather are outstanding in the January through March timeframe. We also belong to Club Corp and the many VERY excellent Club Corp golf courses...

I spent the weekend with friends at the Marriott Shadow Ridge. It was a beautiful hotel. The grounds were impeccable, the amenities in the rooms were abundant, and very quiet. We had a golf course view, and after the rains we had in Southern California, everything was so green & beautiful. Of course you can't beat the Marriott bed linens...

We have stayed with kids and without. What is not to love? You can either venture out and see the town or stay at the resort the entire weekend, you will love both! The pool are giant, clean and kid friendly. Even the adult pool had kids in it and it was not a big deal. The music was great,...
