One of my favorite Marriott properties to date! Beautiful property with a boat that actually takes you from hotel to restaurants on the property (very cool!). Great pool time with exceptional golf courses surrounding the property. My wife really enjoyed the onsite boutique shops and she managed to get in two amazing massages and a facial. Many excellent restaurant options....

We were there for a wedding and the experience was great. The property was very well designed and had neat touches like lots of exotic birds and black swans in the canals. Highly recommend for a wedding or large party! Fab pool, golf, restaurants and suites were huge!

We really enjoyed staying at the Marriott in Palm Desert. There were plenty of activities from mini golf to flying a real hawk with the property's ornithologist Jason (Their Bird Man) who spent time with us providing many educational facts about various birds. We also swam in most of their pools (I think maybe 4 in total) and appreciated the...

This place is huge. You will walk a lot. Grounds are spectacularly well kept. Staff is pleasant and attentive. Multiple pools and hot tubs, all scarcely in use during our visit. Room was decent, but they really need to update the carpeting as it is shabby and ugly (cannot fathom how this orange mess was chosen to begin with for...

This is a wonderful facility, with one glaring fault. The very roomy bathrooms, which have separate showers and tubs and reasonably ample counter space, have only one door which closes the entire bathroom from the bedroom. There is no privacy door for the toilet, even though there is a doorway adjacent where a door could easily be placed. As a...
