"Great 12 Day Family Stay!"
This has been our third stay at this resort over the last four years. Our three teenagers totally enjoyed the pools, tennis courts, basketball nets and the family room. The premium room had lots of room when we included a rollaway cot. The kitchen had everything we needed. All staff members were very helpful and welcoming - 5 star rating. We had one meal at the restaurant in the evening. The service was very good but the food was okay- just a bit overdone ( fish) and the desert was not anything out of the ordinary. The food at the poolside was definitely a hit with the kids, often the portions could have been shared between two people. The location of the resort was perfect- not too far from many attractions, usually it was 10-15 min to where we needed to go. We will book again!
"High Quality Accommodations with some reservations"
Desert Willow Villas is a relatively new time-share resort with units open to the public. We stayed during the pricey Indian Wells Tennis Tournament where rates are nearly double the normal season. In spite of the high rates, we enjoyed the property and its amenities. We were offered the opportunity to forego room service for a credit of rewards points, but chose not to, given the expensive rate for the room. Big mistake! While the room service was good, the people servicing the room had a practice of running the dishwasher when only one plate needed cleaning. Moreover, when we subsequently washed all our plates, they still ran the dishwasher with the coffee-maker pot as the only item. This water wasting practice makes no sense given the limited water available in the region. It soured us on an otherwise nice resort.
"Home away from home"
We have stayed at the Westin Desert Willow Villas several times now and each time I feel like I am coming home when we arrive. The one bedroom units are perfect for a week or longer away. The units are well stocked with everything you need from microwave oven, coffee maker, toaster, blender, washer and dryer. The staff has always responded promptly to requests such as burnt out light bulb or bringing emergency laundry detergent after hours. Our favourite activity is to relax by the adult pool and enjoy cocktails with Joe C the bartender. Joe goes out of his way to make sure guests are taken care of and he is always friendly and professional. The location of the villas are perfect for a quick trip to El Paseo or a round of golf at the desert willow course. There are many restaurants and grocery stores near by as well. I highly recommend these villas. The smaller one bedroom is perfect for couples, and would recommend the more spacious larger one bedroom for families with more than 3 people.
"Great getaway for relaxation."
My husband and I had a nice long weekend here. We stayed in a one bedroom overlooking the golf course and mountains. Great place for a quick getaway from the city. Husband had a great time on the golf course and I had a nice time relaxing. Would definitely come back.
This is a beautiful property located on a wonderful golf course... lots of activities as well and just chilling by one of many pools.... this is a large facility, and all rooms a villas (this is a time share, but you can also get rooms if not an owner)....
