"Perfect Family Getaway!"
Upon arrival, the property seemed huge! I thought I would get lost for sure. When we got to our room, I was happy to see the kitchen with a full sized fridge/ freezer, and a spacious living room for my kids to be able to sleep on the pull-out couch. There are so many pools to choose from, one swim area has a shaded/covered wading pool for the younger ones! There are no shortage of lounge chairs and no shortage of sunshine. My kids are 8,7, and 4 and they were in the pool every morning by 8am..What i loved was that my kids could touch the bottom of the pool so it made relaxing for me more possible. I was worried that their noise would travel to peoples balconies but the sliding glass doors are soundproof in the units! We stayed in building 18 closest to the pool with the shaded covering. There are 3 pools close to the front of the hotel that you can easily call the front desk and request a ride from a hotel staff operated golf-cart guest shuttle or flag one down if you're walking. There are kids activities that happen thru out the morning for extra cost which is a nice option. The restaurant on site called Agave is very good. We ordered pizza lunch pool side from the friendly staff, including drinks to the pool edge! Kids loved being served lemonade while swimming, they felt very special. It was helpful they attached lids for the kids drinks. I can't wait to go back.
"My stay at WDWV"
Modern, clean, comfortable villas. Very good staff and service. It can get busy on weekends with many families and children's activities at the main pool area. Up to date workout room and equipment........
"Great family resort!"
Westin's are known for their amenities and this one is no different. Friendly and engaged staff. Helpful! Rooms a little below the standards of their other resorts/hotels but this is a minor criticism. All-in-all, I would go back again.
"Relaxing Stay at Desert Willow Villas"
We decided on a weekend getaway at the Desert Willow Villas. We had a great time and were able to relax and get some rest. The best part of the stay was the friendly staff, especially Mitzi, Blanca and Aaron. We can't wait to go back to see them.
"Westin in the Desert - Great pools (and golf courses)"
I am a long time SPG member and have stayed at many SPG properties worldwide. This is a nice property. This is a nice Westin property. It's in Palm Desert - which isn't Palm Springs but you have a rental car anyway - no one walks anywhere in the desert. The place seems to be under expansion but when we stayed there were three distinct resort areas; the main area with the restaurant and the pools with the slide, the family areas with the covered toddler pool and the adults area with the pools. These distinct areas are not walkable with the desert heat. There are shuttles. We stayed at the number 4 building with the family pools and loved it. The covered toddler pool is just up our alley. It is so warm in Palm Desert that the pools are like bath water and if that isn't enough the hot tubs are plentiful and you can cook in the desert heat. There is also a nice snack bar with good burgers for the kids and drinks for the parents. It was a good vibe. There were plenty of other families staying when we did. We also went to the main pool and the Agave restaurant and enjoyed both. Good service and good food. We stayed in a premium one bedroom suite. Nice and modern. All the things you expect. A starter detergent for the washer and the dishwasher and the sink was a nice touch. The bathroom is great. We tried room service and it was just great. No issues and piping hot. They charge for parking but not WiFi. I think WiFi is a utility now and expect free WiFi. However, paying for parking in the middle of the desert is an insult. I don't golf so I have no opinion on the golf. It looked nice. Value - awesome. We stayed in September which in not high season, but the value we got was such that we will be back for sure. We love the heat and the warm pools and the Westin service.
