          Can anyone who has stayed here before tell me what sort of things are within walking distance to the resort? Any coffee cute shops / brewpubs / markets? Looking for places with a bit of character, rather than straight forward amenities. I like to wander and explore so anything that may be of interest :)

          Not really around this location. It's an easy walk to golf course and to grocery store but that's it. Closer to downtown Palm Springs might get you more of what you seem to want.
