I recently stayed at the Villas and I must say that the Marriott Shadow Ridge has the nicest staff on the planet. Bar none. I travel a lot and have been all over. Everyone was so nice, friendly and geniunely concerned about making my stay wonderful. Kudos to the Marriott for hiring great people! I stayed in a studio and...

Overall look was pleasant ....the studio apartments with a microwave and refrigerator were comfortable. However, the laundry facilities leave much to be desired. It takes a long time to locate the room as there are no directions to reach it. Swimming pools are nice but overcrowded. Location is good within easy reach of good restaurants and malls. Reception staff are...

Very nice and comfortable villas. Pools were a little crowded, but t was the Labor Day weekend. They had a shortage of pool towels most of the weekend, and the pool bathrooms were always dirty and some without toilet paper. But, other than that, a great family spot. We have stayed here before this last trip and had a great...

We recently stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. Amenities very nice. Spacious room with kitchen was nice but a little dated. We were directly across from pool which was convenient with small kids. Kids loved the pool and water park/slide. We tried to use the activity center for some games but it had closed early the night we went. But...

We visited the Shadow Ridge Resort as an extension to our trip. The accommodations were clean & comfortable. It was our second trip there (the first having been a very short stay several years ago). The amenities are very good and the area where we were was very peaceful & quiet. We are planning to return there for another visit...

We've been coming to the Palm Desert area every summer for 7 years now. This was our first time staying at a Marriott in the area. We had previously stayed at either of the two Westins, but decided to give this a shot. Villa: We loved the room. We had a 2 bedroom/2bath villa. In the past, we've stayed in...

Simply put this is a beautiful resort with friendly staff and outstanding service. The suites are large, nicely furnished and well equipped. The views of the golf course from the balcony are pleasant. There are a significant number of pools. The children's pool has all the "bells and whistles" to keep them entertained. There are also adult pool if you...

This is the first time that I have been to Palm Desert in August and was not sure what to expect. The grounds were well groomed with beautiful landscaping. This is a very nice resort with great views from the balcony. The table on the balcony was very small making it impractical to enjoy dinner or drinks with four adults....

What a fantastic week we have had. The apartment was superbly furnished. Great space and facilities. The kids loved the fact that they were in a connecting room for our 2 bed apartment. the bed was so comfortable as well. We found customer service to be excellent throughout. The choice of pools was great, the main family pools in the...

This resort does meet the expectation that I have for Marriott. Nice and clean ground, covered car port, polite staff, great golf view from the balcony, spacious room, comfortable bed, and many pools. It is a nice place even though in the hot August with 110 degree temperature. However, there are a few things that I think can be improved:...
