Feels like 1965 and decorated at the level of a Holiday Inn. JW is supposed to be the flagship. They are milking this one. It is a giant and full of convention guests and the lacl of intimacy and personal service that this requires.

The wife and I spent a week at the Marriot Resort - had a Wonderful time. The J.W. Marriot does it right. Great room, attentive service, relaxing atmosphere - it has it all. Great gym (needs a cold pool), lots of restaurants, and near many many golf courses. Great resort and highly recommended.

I had the pleasure of staying briefly at the JW Marriott recently for a conference. The hotel grounds are breathtaking. An assortment of swans and flamingos greet you as you drive up. The hotel is surrounded by desert and mountains. We were greeted warmly by valet parking--special shout out to Adam, even though we pulled up in our rented Toyota...

We recently stayed 5 nights at this resort. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Surrounded by golf courses, it's very lush. Pools were clean and well-staffed. For excellent poolside service, make sure Caroline is your server. On-site restaurants were good, but be prepared for high prices at Mikado teppenyaki. You pay for the "entertainment" of cooking your food. The sushi at...

We stayed six nights on a combined business/family trip. The resort is older, but has been well maintained. The grounds are lush (in the desert) and the mountain backdrop was gorgeous. We had a high floor room facing the mountains and it was well worth the added cost. The spa could use an update -- the pools were a bit...

After a meal on El Paseo, my family and I wanted to have a night cap at the lounge bar at the Marriott. We sent my brother in law to the bar to get us drinks and he was told a wait person would be sent to our table to take our order. We waited, and watched wait staff standing...

I don't like to post negative reviews but I just had to when it came to this hotel. I'm so disappointed in this JW Marriott Hotel. We are Marriott gold members and have stayed at locations all over the world and this by far is the most disappointing JW I've experienced. We used 40,000 points for one night and paid...

We stay here every summer, and sometimes even for a Spring Break getaway! This is a great place to come with friends, or with your mate - not really recommended in the spring-summer months for kids (lots of parties) - but for sure a fun getaway for adults! There is a club, Costas, downstairs and a sushi bar & real...

We really enjoyed this hotel - price was similar to some other properties for our dates, but this was the best combination of location, views and service. It is worth it to pay extra for the view as it is quite spectacular to look out over the pools and golf course, and to see the mountains in the distance. There...
