Stayed with family for 4 nights. The one bedroom villa was very large, had a very usable kitchen, fireplace and was nicely renovated. We had a view over the golf course which was beautiful in the mornings. We stayed on second floor but there is no elevator so if walking stairs with your things is an issue ask for a...

Had a great sunken living room with sectional. The ammenities were also very good. Numerous pools all over the property and you could...

The villas 1 at Marriott Desert Springs is the best timeshare property in the industry. Though originally built in 1991, the company has maintained the property well and made many improvements over the years. This is a perfect place for us to share with another couple.

We booked a two bedroom which we assumed would be one unit. It turned out to be a one bedroom with a kitchen and a studio lock off connected by two locked doors. This arrangement worked fine for us as my kids who were using the second bedroom are adults - but if they had been children this definitely would...

Summary: A typical and dependable Marriott experience. Clean, updated, safe and fun. Won't be a unique experience and nothing unusual or noteworthy will strike you, but then again, you may find this a value. Review: I would have given this property five stars but for the Marriott standardization. This is not a criticism. Marriott has to standardize. Especially with the...
