Stayed here with friends and we loved every minute of it. There are so many things going on and regrettably we only had a short stay and could not enjoy every thing this property has to offer. The property also connects with the Marriott JW hotel resort, which has its own entrance and can only be reached by car. Our highlight of the moment was in the morning we woke up and withdrew the curtain. We were really captured by the beautiful golf course view while we sip our coffee. Our room came with a standard bathroom with shower and a large tub (out of the bathroom) should anyone wants to enjoy taking a hot bath. This is a wonderful property.

We spent a week here, four people in a two bedroom two bath. Villa was great and spacious. Even had a fireplace. We looked over the golf course and had a first floor unit (which I requested as I have a problem with stairs). Only bad thing was the trash left on the walkway up to the unit all week. The 2nd floor unit had to be cleaned for new tenants while we were there, so the cleaning people must have seen the trash when they came to clean, but it stayed there. Also, covered parking was great.

I took my friend with me to celebrate her birthday. We checked in and I got a corner villa but the ONLY one available was the structure closet to the street and main gate. I was also not told that the villa was NOT connected to the extra bedroom. I found out later that desert 1 villas are not connected. I was very disappointed!! The villa is very comfortable and was super clean. I was very impressed with the staff and all the safety procedures they followed. Most impressive staff member was Abraham. He worked at the pool(s). He had a great personality and was there for towels, water etc. He should be promoted because he is truly an assist. Grounds were beautiful and super maintained.

The title of my review is a very bold statement. I have stayed at some great properties, but this one is particularly memorable. We had a 1 bedroom Villa with a golf course view. This was the most well thought room layout I have ever seen. Whomever designed this Villa knew what they were doing. Every detail was taken into consideration. The beautiful counter tops in the kitchen and bathroom, the layout of the bathroom, the shower, the bathtub, the mirrors, the very clean carpeting, the motion detected floor lighting, the large bars of soap for both sink and shower, the extensive selection of cable channels, the two tv”s, the dining table for six, the comfortable chairs, and L shaped couch, the very comfortable king bed, the extremely quiet and efficient ac, the wonderful large balcony and balcony furniture, the great kitchen amenities and large kitchen, the crown molding, the electronic fireplace, the large towels, plenty of power outlets, fast internet, and the lighting. The property is right next to the Marriott Hotel and there is a walking path via the Tennis courts that easily connects both properties so you can take advantage of the various Restaurants and Shops. If you do not want to take the short walk, they have a free bus leaving throughout the complex every 15 minutes. We had such a nice time we will be returning to the property soon. Thank you Marriott Vacation Club, it was a wonderful stay.

Spent a week here earlier this month and last year as well at the onset of the pandemic panic. Understandably at the beginning, people were scared, California state government grew more and more stupid with useless and needless restrictions, and service at this resort went south in a hurry. Fast forward to this year and the pool hours are STILL reduced - excuse: lack of staff, turnover seems to be 100%, with some staff clearly untrained and unmotivated. There are SO MANY people who want and need work that the ridiculous comment is insulting. Gym hours are also reduced and limited to a few patrons with some smaller gyms completely closed. Again, the same stupid excuse, lack of staff. The grounds are filthy with litter, garbage and debris all over the place. There is no excuse for allowing such a miserable situation. The bottom line here and at all Marriott's we've visited over the past 12 months is that the company is relentlessly cutting costs resulting in a miserable experience compared to what once was. My sense is that this situation will continue long after the hysteria abates, resulting in a new normal of glossy pictures, high prices and pathetic excuses for poor service in return for a very mediocre stay. Old man Marriott would be ashamed.
