PROS: very well-maintained grounds. Friendly staff. Nice “quiet pool” if you want to get away from the noise of the main pool. Comfortable bed, good amenities. CONS: If you are unfortunate enough to be placed in a first floor room with someone in the room directly above you, be prepared to wipe your rear with the amount of money you spent on… Read more
PROS: very well-maintained grounds. Friendly staff. Nice “quiet pool” if you want to get away from the noise of the main pool. Comfortable bed, good amenities. CONS: If you are unfortunate enough to be placed in a first floor room with someone in the room directly above you, be prepared to wipe your rear with the amount of money you spent on your room. You can absolutely hear every creak, every noise (even breathing, not joking), and if someone is walking it is literally like loud clomps. It is completely unbearable and makes the whole golf/sanctuary resort vibe a complete joke. The parking lot during this weekend was completely full. I came back around 2pm after spending the morning in Palm Springs and there was legit no parking ANYWHERE. I went to the main registration and valet area and they were just like, sorry, you have to pay for valet. Super annoying! If you eat at their main restaurant, they have a $31/pp breakfast buffet of... room temperature foods! $31 for luke warm eggs, limp cold bacon, tiny pancakes, cold potatoes, but at least they had cold fruit? Such a disappointment. Read less

My husband and I spent our first year wedding anniversary and baby moon here.

My husband and I spent our first year wedding anniversary and baby moon here. We walked into our room to be surprised by flower petals, towel swans, sparkling cider, and the best orange zest cheesecake I've ever had. It was so sweet and unexpected seeing as to how we did a super late check in at midnight! Before entering our room though, we were helped by John and Ronnie. Both those gentlemen had their energy you'd expect from front desk in the morning, and we appreciated that energy since we were so tired from our drive. We woke up early to the most beautiful view at the resort (building 5 overlooking the pond, trees, and mountains). We then had bfast buffet at the pinzimini restaurant located there. The food was so fresh and there were many options. We then spent the rest of our day at the quiet pool, had lunch at Seasons grill, and just relaxed. Day two, we played mini golf, walked the adoption pup, played cornhole, played pool, had fun at the Oasis Den arcade, and did more relaxing. If you're looking for a place that is quiet and spacious enough to relax, and still have access to many activities and delicious food, this location is the BEST place to come! Read less

First, this is a huge property with villas and hotel rooms. It spreads out over many acres, which can be good and bad. Lots of variety and room for activity...pretty long walks although they have frequent on site shuttles. Great place for kids and parents alike. Nice pools and restaurants.

First, this is a huge property with villas and hotel rooms. It spreads out over many acres, which can be good and bad. Lots of variety and room for activity...pretty long walks although they have frequent on site shuttles. Great place for kids and parents alike. Nice pools and restaurants. Played the Pete Dye golf course which could not be more conveniently located. Very nice course if excellent condition. Was not slow and the overall experience was wonderful. Had breakfast at the main restaurant and everything was great. Had one interesting experience with Westin personnel that I feel compelled to share. Went to the main bar at the registration area late one evening. The bartender (Roberto) was about to close up. I had the unusual request of asking for a bowl of ice cream and a diet Coke. It was 11:20 at night, so the ice cream did seem a bit odd, but he did not hesitate...said he would be back in a minute. He was and he had my ice cream as promised. He did not have to do that and I was mildly surprised that he did not just say it couldn't happen. It was a small thing perhaps, but if employees care enough about the customers to go out of their way to do something that helps them, then I think somebody is doing something right. Maybe he is just an exemplary employee or maybe his supervisor is...but somebody is doing something right and it gave me a better view of the entire property and operation. Sometimes it is the little things that can make a big difference. I like the Westin anyway, but good service is what gets you to come back to a place and I likely will do so. Looked like a great spot for families and friends to get together and have fun. Read less

We booked an executive suite for a one-night getaway from LA and took the opportunity to bring our dog along, too.

We booked an executive suite for a one-night getaway from LA and took the opportunity to bring our dog along, too. The suite was perfect, a corner unit with views of the golf course on the first floor, and the grounds were immaculate for taking walks throughout the day. We were just around the corner from the quiet pool so we took turns going to hang out (one of us stayed with the dog since he was a bit anxious being in a new place and even though he didn't bark, we didn't think it was fair to him to be alone). The Westin Heavenly bed is honestly my favorite, and I could have stayed there all day. Next time, we'll bring the kid. So many pools to choose from, family activities like fishing in the pond, tortoises to visit, not to mention the water slide. The staff were all very friendly, too. Read less
