We enjoyed our stay at the Renaissance Esmeralda for a business meeting. Our room was very nice, spacious and well-appointed, but it was located so far from the elevators that getting to and from was part of our daily workout. For that reason, it was probably not often used, so upon our arrival, we discovered a few dead insects (including...

We stayed at the Renaissance in Indian Wells in August for 2 nights. We were a family of 4 and had a standard room. We asked for a quiet room, which it definitely was. It was quite a long walk from reception, but we didn't mind that because we preferred the location of our room away from the main lobby...

The rooms are beautiful, very clean. We had 2 connecting rooms, which was perfect for our family ! It was like a suite :-) The swimming pool area is very nice too, although we didn't use it, as we arrived late and had to go in the morning (it was just a stop for us). We wish we had stayed...

Although we were there for business, the resort appeared to attract many families. There certainly were many activities for the kids, the pool area being the primary activity. The pool was very crowded during the day. The Lobby bar was pleasant and staff was very nice. The upscale Sirocco restaurant was excellent. The more casual Cava was OK. The sushi...

This was our second time staying at the Renaissance Esmeralda. The first time we loved it so much that we felt we had to include it again on this trip. Often second time around things fail to live up to expectations but we were not disappointed. The location of this hotel is so beautiful - surrounded by mountains and palm...

My family and I stayed at the resort for two nights and the physical appearance of the hotel was absolutely beautiful. Everything was polished, there were no signs of dust, and the staff was very friendly. We had to move to twice because of issues with the room (the first had one bed, the second try had two beds, but...

I stayed at the Esmeralda resort for 4 nights and had a wonderful experience. We were upgraded to a corner suite which made the stay even more comfy! We enjoyed the large pool every day and had lunch there as well. The staff was very friendly and the food was yummy!For dinner we would drive a short 15 minutes or...

We stayed for 5 nights in July for a conference. The hotel is in a scenic location with golf courses and lakes surrounding it. We had a lot of luggage so we drove right up and had immediate help in unloading it, and then self-parked the car. Check in was quick and we were given an upgraded corner room. The...

We came this past weekend with our kids for a 2 night vacation. Times have been tough in this economy, but after a raving review we decided this would be the perfect place for our little vacation. The resort is beautiful, the pool is awesome, the room more than adequately met our needs and for the most part the service...

We have been staying at the Esmeralda for over 10 years and it always manages to maintain the property. We always stay in a corner kimg and the upgrade is worth it. Unfortunately we were in the farthest room from the front of house and it was quite noisy during Spring Break which goes well into April. Suggest staying away...

“If you would like quiet, maybe do not request a pool view. Perhaps a golf coarse view. rooms on the Southside are much quieter.”
