Perfect for a family
It’s the perfect place for a family, the pool was heated, the kitchen and bathrooms are upgraded and were very nice, the beds were comfortable, they had everything you could possibly need kitchen wise, pots, pans, even a strainer. My only complaint would probably be the comforters. They look like they are from 1982 and should be replaced, I didn’t even want to touch it, otherwise, no complaints from me!

Very Good8.0
Good set-up for family
Did a weekend trip with the fam. Room set-up (two bedrm, 2 bath, kitchen, living room) was great for family. We didn't feel crowded. Kitchen was well stocked and we made several breakfasts. Vivian in the front office was super helpful with Living Zoo tickets and dinner recommendations. Only negative comment was the condition of some of the bedding. We could see bad stains on the side of mattress (like chocolate on white). And when we pulled out the sofa bed there was a big moldy spot on the underside. Kinda gross. Housekeeping should be better about replacing that kind of stuff.

Safe, clean, roomy and budget friendly
Dated but clean, comfortable, roomy and affordable. Staff was accommodating and nice. Rooms were clean and roomy with enough supplies in the kitchen for average people. Pool was clean and a good temperature. Laundry was convient and only $1 for a wash or dry cycle. Other patrons in villas were quiet and courteous. All in all great stay.

Huge and great for a family.
We went for New Year's 2018. I came with my wife and my two teenage kids. The place was perfectly located near downdown Palm Springs. Very large 850 sq ft. It is basically a two bedroom condo with all amenities. The Pool is heated. No problem swimming in late December. Just hopped right till 11pm too with hot tub . Place is quite at night. I'm staying here again for sure.
