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...

This place is HUGE! It has everything that you need. There are several restaurants, great shopping, several pools, boats rides in the evening, great workout facility, and much more! It is a beautiful resort. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff did a great job of taking care of all our needs.

When you drive up to the resort you will marvel at the beauty. Inside the hotel is amazing with views of the pool and lake complete with water taxi. Now the bad news, the rooms are Holiday Inn quality( nothing special) if you're use to staying at the best hotels or resorts in the world you will understand. The rooms...

I have stayed at several JW Marriotts before so I thought I knew what to expect when it came to the property amenities. The resort is in a gorgeous location and they take great pride in maintaining the outdoor landscape. We came for a long weekend and we enjoyed just strolling around the property and even ate onsite at one...

We had a wonderful stay at the JW Marriott. The resort is large with golf courses, a putting course, several restaurants, shopping, pools and a spa. In the evenings you can tour the hotel properties and beautiful lakes on a small charter boat. Our room had a balcony view and overlooked the pool, golf course and mountains….Beautiful view.

Want to be fair with the review. This has the feel of a family vacation resort equipt with many pools and tons of people. The lounges are on top of each other and although we just visited in October it had that spring break feel. The music was soooo loud all day long. Don't get me wrong I love music...

My extended family (including little ones) look forward to being together in the Palm Springs area each year. This year, we chose the JW Marriott. Although the property is beautiful, the staff caused a comedy of errors all along the way. It took 40 minutes to check in because although I had called the hotel twice to request that our...
