Very nice clean large 1 bedroom unit. Friendly staff. This resort offers a wide variety of activities especially for fitness buffs. (not me). Stayed on the top floor building 1100 in corner unit-nice view of mountains. The downside of corner unit is proximity to barbeque grills-it can get a little loud.

My wife and I were in Palm Desert to celebrate my birthday. We have been Marriott Vacation Club owners since 2003 and have upgraded to the relatively new points system since 2015. My review has to do with priorities, value and expectations. I am an avid golfer and love to get away from work. For me, this is among the...

Came here to celebrate a friend' birthday. Nice and clean accommodations with a full size kitchen and dining table. Outdoor parking and lots of swimming pools. Ideal for families with children. We enjoyed our stay. Nightlife requires you go to their sister property at the JW Marriott.

Beautiful views and rooms. Had an awesome time. House keeping could have been a little more consistent and attentive but for the most part it was a great stay on a very busy weekend. Also booked last minute so it was a blessing to even be able to get a suite. All in all I was thoroughly impressed.

Marriott's Shadow Ridge is a beautiful resort nestled between the impressive mountains in a lush setting. Our room was very comfortable and spacious enough and included a kitchenette and a balcony. The staff was very friendly and attentive and promptly responded to any requests we had. The pool was beautiful and although lounge chairs were sometimes at a premium, we...

Great condo with kitchen & bedroom. Perfect for staying with kids. Nice pool area & kids room. Tennis courts and dining areas are about a five minute walk from side of the rooms. Definitely roomier than staying in a traditional hotel room. Quick drive to local zoo & restaurants .

Honestly, the Villas were not up to Marriott standards. Holes in carpet, broken floor tiles, grout coming out of bathroom tiles, weather stripping pulled loose on windows, stained bedroom carpet and room not ready for a 4 pm check-in. Not sure I would stay there again.

Our family has been to this beautiful 5 star property many times. Perfect all the time. They have many pools although a great tip is to ask for the 1400 building 1st floor or any building right near it. This is close to the only main pool. Many smaller, quieter pools around the resort. The main pool has a bar,...

“1st floor rooms offer a "walk out" type balcony but the 3rd floor rooms have a nice view.”
SKim323, 23 May 2017 | Read review
“Avoid corner unit. Smokers should say on 1st floor- no smoking on balcony only in parking lot or barbeque area”

“1400, 1st floor building. If not available 1200 or 1500 building. This is close proximity to the larger pool and bar area.”

“Some pools are intended as quiet or adult--if you have children, be aware how far you are from the pool if you plan to use it a lot.”
