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 hotels.com to try and receive a refund but told that the hotel refused to reimburse any of our money. All Hotels.com 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 .

Didn’t know it was a time share. It didn’t matter. The room was great. The pool, there were four, but we only went to the one by our room, was almost empty. Very nice. Weight room was adequate for weights plus cardio equipment.

4 Star position with 3 Star relity
Loved the attitude of the reception team and the pride they displayed. The facilities are excellent and well designed. My challenge was with the "little things". We walked up to our "ready room" only to navigate through old linen and trash that had not been picked up. Some of the blinds did not work well and a lamp needed repair, couldn't make the conditioner dispenser work. All these are small things that display an expectation when you spend the dollars to go somewhere nice.

Benefits of Condo versus Hotel Room
The place was quite spacious and is in a good location. We were on the second floor so the noise level was very low. We stayed one night only and did not have time to take advantage of the pools. The only odd thing is that there is a bathtub in the master bedroom. Also the bathroom is quite nice but to hang yr bathrobe/clothes/towels on the back of the bathroom door, you have to be over six feet six inches tall!!
