Bistro nice when open, which wasn't often. Room not anything as shown on website Bed in living room, no dressers for clothes. Cheapest utensils, dark as a cave, furniture with stains, tiniest soap I've ever seen. This was a splurge at $350 a night for our 31st anniversary. Worst place we ever stayed.

If you are a tennis player, you cannot ask for a better place to stay. Amazing courts and pro-staff. Tons of options for all levels. Walking distance to great shops and food in Palm Desert. The unit we stayed in was acceptable, but did not exceed expectations as it was bare bones (bad kitchen equipment). There was no after hour support for any issues, which was not great either. But, we liked it enough for the key items that we would stay again.

The photos of the property are very misleading!! The rooms look updated and nice, but my room was an old run down room! Not even close to what is on the Expedia website! Which is the same thing as their website! Very disappointed!! To be fair, if you play tennis, nice set of courts, good lighting for them as well. Pool and chairs look nice. Seems like they need a better pool man!! Built up calcium, and some algae! Minimal, but there!! Sad!!
