It’s tough to go on vacation alone for the first time after a lose, but it was heart warming to hear “Welcome home” from the staff when checking in. This was her favourite location which made it tougher to come back to. The staff and management made sure that everything would be

This place is first class all around! The rooms are a bit weird with HUGE showers and not a lot of other space but beautiful and clean. The pools are really nice and the BBQ area was spic and span with everything you needed! The units are stocked with all utensils and pots

Sorry but there was only the 2 of us in a 1 bedroom. I never looked to see if there was a pull out but normally there is. The discrimination should say how many the room tile sleeps

Like most respondents here, I go to Palm Desert for golf, but I agree with the suggestions of: 1. taking the gondola up to the near-top of San Jacinto, and hike up there (although keep in mind that the temperature can be 40 - yes, forty - degrees cooler up top)... or 2. read up on Joshua Tree National Park, and pick a portion to walk there (keep in mind that it can be really HOT in the park, and Joshua trees provide almost zero shade!) There's quite a fascinating section of rock croppings in the middle of the drive through the park that you might find very appealing to hike through. Regardless of which of many options you choose, you'll love Palm Desert, and the Embarc resort.

Not really around this location. It's an easy walk to golf course and to grocery store but that's it. Closer to downtown Palm Springs might get you more of what you seem to want.
