We just returned from 1 week staying at the Marriott Shadow Ridge resort and can say that the entire stay was exactly like the last 3 stays that we have had here. We stayed in Building 2500 to be close to the tennis courts - the reason why we go to Palm Desert in the first place. Our 1 bedroom...

I have no affiliation with the Marriott, & commend them for understanding & delivering the best in customer service.

Suite 3031 near the Golf Course & 'the quiet pool.' Very well equipped, nicely furnished, spotlessly clean (as one should expect at a Marriott property). Very cordial & unobtrusive, accommodating staff. Excellent facilities. Only the on site Restaurant might have been less than anticipated, service was fine but the menu about 6 on a scale of 10 possible & the...

I have stayed here twice, once in the summer and just recently in Dec 2013. I have stayed here for the 1bdrm full kitched suite and not for golfing or the pool areas.

We have been owners here for several years and can absolutely recommend it for all ages and interests. Rooms are very nice, try for a double suite and if you are pool people, ask for the buildings across from the main pool. Two pools at that location; adults and kids, both large and the kids has many amenities such as...

Was out there in September. It was hot but surprisingly not as hot as I thought it would be. This resort was great. We had a great two bedroom corner unit - it had everything you needed and more.

We stay at Shadow Ridge every year when we come to town for our family getaway. Husband loves the golf course, and the kids are always content with the pool and the scheduled activities. Location is great because it's close to the city center in Palm Desert, but also close to the freeway if you plan on going to the...
