Our family (five of us) spent three weeks during December 2014 and January 2015 at this resort. All of us had a wonderful time. This is a timeshare resort and we do stayed here as part of our Marriott timeshare ownership. This resort is definitely a first class facility. The staff does everything they can to make sure you are...

We exchanged thru II at the end of March for Christmas week at the Marriott Desert Villas I. We have stayed previously at Desert Villas II. We prefer Villas I. Desert Villas is the only resort (that we have checked into) that contacts you for your pre-arrival requests. We spent the week in a one bedroom on the second floor,...

I just completed a recent eight day stay. I find it very hard to believe DSV both I and II are not ranked #1 and #2 for Palm Desert on TA. Have been visiting for the last 20 years the level of maintenance, services and amenities provided has not changed one bit. if anything they have even improved. For a...

Our group of 4 adults and 2 kids had a comfortable but brief stay in a 2 bedroom villa. The configuration was great, villa was well appointed and had a nice view of the golf course and JW Mariott resort. We have stayed at the JW before and love the property but like more space than a traditional hotel room...

I made arrangements through Interval (my parents are owners and my mom was with us on this trip). From the beginning, I was impressed with the staff when I called prior to our visit to request a handicap room. Upon our arrival, the lady checking us in was very friendly and helpful. Our experience with the staff was above and...

We come south for the sun and shopping, and staying here only added to our enjoyment! We had a studio suite, which was just the right size. The room has a full bathroom, heavenly beds and a great balcony with which to watch the sun set. No kitchen in these, but they do have a mini fridge and microwave. There...

We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath villa within easy walking distance of the JW Marriott. The decorations and lights added to our festive weekend. So relaxing. Lots of room for four women. We even managed to get some shopping, walks and hot tub time!

Marriott's Desert Springs Villas I really set the standard for timeshare operations. This property and the adjacent Villas Ii are well-maintained, adequately-staffed, and professionally organized. All timeshare owners should hope for and expect the overall quality of this property. Unlike so many timeshares that were former run-down hotels, refurbished a little, and assigned a time-share designation, this property was designed...

Beautiful surroundings. Golf course view with mountains in the background. Use of the JW Marriott. Nice balcony. These are great. However there were things that I am used to (Westin has me spoiled) that were missing. Small things like no Jacuzzi in master. Motel Six soaps and shampoo. No salt and pepper shakers. Beautiful but uncomfortable living room furniture.The main...
