Was a nice change, but we ended up in a Studio Villa and for a week it was too small. Could only heat up food in the microwave. Did have a toaster, but couldn't plug in that and the coffee pot all at the same time because the fridge was also plugged in. Table way too small for 2

We thought this was a wonderful place to stay and we were surprised at the size of our newly remodeled studio apartment. It was clean and spacious and it is always great to have kitchen facilities. The grounds were beautiful and well kept and the staff friendly and helpful.

I would presume that it is heated in the winter. I went in June/July and the pools were refreshing in the heat of the day, and plenty warm in the evenings.

I was there end of June 2018 and saw some workers by the desert villas 2. Not sure if they were just doing maintenance. You should call direct for the latest info. It’s fabulous there! Have a great time.

No, you can use the mini-golf at the JW for free. You need to show them that you are a Marriott guest to do this.

Yes it does. Even the one bedroom unit had a washer and dryer.

We stayed at a one bedroom unit and it was probably larger than some two bedroom units we have stayed at at other properties so I assume the two bedroom units are large. Not sure about the renovation question. There are two pools in Desert Springs I and both have plenty of umbrellas for shade. One of the pools has a bar.

"I'm not sure there would be a bad room. Defintely go for the one bedroom versus a studio."
"Request golf course view, some units have parking area views. Second floor units avoid overhead noise, but there are no elevators."
"The golf course views are beautiful."
"Ground floor rooms have terrace and 1st floor, American 2nd floor, rooms have large balconies .Golf course views are more pleasant."
"Request a Sunset View of the Mountains - you will never leave!"
