      Wonderful people

      People were helpful and generous. I was able to have a late check out and use services past check out time. I felt so welcomed. Absolutely beautiful property. Extra comfy bed. Loved this place.

      My new favorite place to stay.

      Just lovely. Our unit had an outdoor shower that I used several times a day. I just loved it. I want to go back now.

      Place was nice and clean, but not much to do on location. Great for a family vacation not so great for a girl get away. Not much to do anywhere close by either. And it was extremely expensive for what it had to offer. No restaurant on site, have to go to the store to purchase even water. Will not be going back.

      This was my second stay at Embarc Palm Desert. It's a beautiful, comfortable, clean resort in a quiet location. Staff very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't change anything.

      The landscaping was beautiful. The hot tub worked most of the time. We weren't told there would be maid service. We were told there was a resort fee but half the things were closed and only 3 pickle ball mallets when we went to play.

      We had a one bedroom condo and we’re happy with the space and the condition it was in. Having the little outdoor shower was a treat. One of our favorite things was the big patio with not only the table and chairs, but also the lounge chairs. Our only disappointment was the blinds in the bedroom let in a ton of light which woke us up early. Blackout blinds should be installed. The pool areas
