The grounds are beautiful. The condo was spacious and nicely decorated. The complex included a lot of amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Perfect quiet getaway
Great short getaway from the LA hustle. It was quiet, relaxing and beautiful grounds. Staff was friendly and the accommodations were very clean and comfortable. There are no food amenities, but a plaza across the the way with restaurants and a grocery store. They ya e a great bar b a area and plenty of pools to choose from. Will come back again!

Brief escapade at Palm Desert
We just came back from our little trip to Palm Desert. Our stay at Embarc was exceptional. The homes are ver well designed. They are new, very clean and well equipped. It is a perfect place to relax. Everything was perfect and beautiful. I recommend this hotel.

Loved it, loved it, loved it!
Came down to visit family and have stayed at a couple of places around this area. Hands down this is the best place I have ever stayed and I hope I can stay again! It is a little confusing understanding where you need to go to check in but once you figure that out, you are good to go. The facilities are amazing, there is so much to do and the grounds are beautifully taken care of. The room is an apartment and ours had a patio area before you actually got to your room which was very nice. It was just a little too hot to hang there but would be great when it is cooler. The only other thing is there are these bugs that come out at night and make a funny noise, they scared my sister half to death. They are completely harmless and not sure if they only come out when the weather is hot. Otherwise, loved it and hope to stay again!!

Never coming back
Spend our anniversary in Palm Springs and just relax? That sounds amazing. We booked our stay at Embarc Palm Desert and that’s where our issues began. Upon entering the room, it was anything but what had been advertised. There was no stove or bathtub like in the pictures or discription. After about 10 minutes of being in the room the AC vent started spewing water on top of our luggage. I called the front desk to ask for the room that had the stove and bathtub but then demanded an extra $100 per night. I called to try and receive a refund but told that the hotel refused to reimburse any of our money. All was able to do was offer me a credit to be used for a later day. After being on the phone for what felt like a lifetime we were put in a different room. I thought things could not get worse but I was wrong . Do you want clean towels and linens? Maybe on the first day, but after that you have to go to the laundromat because room service was nowhere in sight. It would have been nice to sleep in. Too bad we didn’t disconnect our phone. We received a un requested wake up call at 8 am to try and sell me a time share, are you serious? No thanks. Relaxing is far from what you get here,and I won’t be back. There are Hotels that less expensive that offer better things .
