Ours was a three generation family vacation. Our two-bedroom, air-conditioned villa (2901 & 2902) was made up of a one bedroom unit with an adjoining studio unit. We arrived at 1:30 p.m. and were given access to the studio side only, as the one bedroom unit was still being readied. Full access did not come until after 4:30 p.m.. The studio was size of an average hotel room and was furnished with a king size bed and a pull-out sofa and table in the sitting area. The kitchenette included a small refrigerator, microwave oven, small sink, coffee maker, toaster and was furnished with dinnerware for two persons. The one-bedroom unit was nicely furnished and included a washer/dryer, full kitchen with oven, all basic appliances, cookware and dinnerware for six persons. There were two minor maintenance issues (no signal on one of the televisions and an unworkable safe); both of which were resolved within 15 minutes of our phone call.
The resort offers two types of maid service: a "full clean" and a "tidy clean." There is a charge for both services if you are staying on a timeshare ownership or exchange. One "tidy clean" service is included if you are paying a nightly rate. This was the first Marriott timeshare resort we have stayed at that did not include at least one mid-week "tidy clean" service for timeshare owners/exchangers.
Resort amenities at the M.C.V. include serveral swimming pools, including a lap and chilren's pool, spas, fitness center, steam rooms, pool tables, children's playground, barbeque grills, fire pits, mini-market, restaurant (bar & grill) and activities desk (scheduled activities for all ages occur throughout the day).
Amenities at the neighboring J.W. Marriott include golf (two courses) several restaurants & lounge, nature & preserve trails, tennis courts, and four acres of waterways including swimming pools, whirlpools and a "lazy river". It should be noted that access to the J.W. Marriott pools may be restricted for M.C.V. guests if the occupancy rate on the "J.W." side is at or near capacity. A free shuttle bus operates between the two resorts on a regular schedule.
The M.C.V. is just a short drive away from numerous restaurants, a large grocery store (Albertson's is less than a mile away; Costco is about five miles away), movie theater and cultural landmarks. The Desert Ridge Market Place (less than two miles) is a premier shopping, dining and entertainment destination.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the M.C.V. and highly recommend the resort for families and couples alike.
Disclaimer: We are multiple week, Marriott timeshare owners (Shadow Ridge - Palm Desert, CA and Maui Ocean Club - Maui, HI) and have stayed at eight different Marriott timeshare properties.
