FYI, the "resort" is a time-share situation, a fact that I don't recall seeing on either Travelocity or Booking.com when I made my reservation. If you expect certain amenities, such as complimentary housekeeping services or even a daily continental breakfast, forget about it. We were given an upstairs 1-bedroom unit in the furthest corner of the resort. This turned out... More

The room was newly renovated We liked the room as it was very spacious and clean. It felt like home and would like to visit again. We will recommend it to anyone who likes a house to stay and is easy to locate. It has restaurants and groceries close by

My wife and I had the privilege of staying at the Desert Isle of Palm Springs in March 2016. We found the 1 bedroom unit very spacious but somewhat dated. The personal BBQ were a positive feature. The pool and lounge area was spacious. Desert Isle did not have a cafe or grille area where light lunches could be purchased.... More

With a complete makeover this place could be great. But it hasn't had one and it isn't. The suites are quite large but they are dark and depressing. The bed was AWFUL. Booked this last minute for a quick one night trip and seriously thought about driving home in the middle of the night. The carpet was dirty. The shower... More

Really impressed with this accommodation. very good location, and the quality of apartment was good, and very large. Got very good nights sleep here, and stayed 7 nights. The service from the front desk was at best luke warm though, and we had two negative experiences with them. When the key cards stopped working, we sort of got the Spanish... More

My husband and I booked this resort with Diamond Resorts using points. There are many rooms available for direct booking, with no set rooms for either. We like the roominess of our unit, with two baths ( one with shower, other with tub). The kitchen is fully loaded and the living room large. There is a sofa sleeper, as well... More

This is not an hotel in the traditional sense but a series of well appointed suites arranged in blocks around various walkways and a couple of pools. Not particularly large, it offers very well equipped, spacious, comfortable and clean apartments with dedicated free parking. Eating facilities are limited but there are plenty of local options to choose from.

The resort is located just a few miles from downtown, 5 minutes’ drive. We stayed in a family apartment with fabulous mountain view, lovely balcony, next to the heated pool. The apartment itself was very specious, cozy, fully equipped, lovely decorated. Fully equipped kitchen was very useful when traveling with kids, but not only. Highly recommended for a romantic stay... More
