Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Our 2 bedroom unit was very spacious and the surrounding drought-tolerant landscaping is excellent. While this location has no restaurant and the spa is closed during summer months, there is a premier steakhouse and a 5-star resort located literally within .5 miles from it. Embarc Palm Desert embedded within the Desert Willow Golf course, a premier 18- hole experience.
