I've always been told that Palm Springs was a place where extremely old people go to visit their parents. Boy was I wrong. Was in town for a wedding, and had a blast. The Welk Resort became home away from home. With a fully equipped kitchen, and a Trader Joe's near by, I could relax, and enjoy a home style...

We only stayed one night passing through on a rainy motorcycle tour of Southern California. Room was comfortable and clean and we had lots of space in our suite with a lovely kitchen. Can't comment as much on amenities of the resort due to short stay but wanted to review to pay homage to the amazing service provided by Ryan,...

My children and I were pleased with the Desert Oasis. The unit was well equipped with newer appliances and my children were able to sleep three deep in the queen sized bed. The sleeper sofa was newer, and also comfortable. Do not get excited about the fitness center, as it was small, and limited in equipment. However there were a...

The Fitness Center was a huge disappointment: It was almost as tiny as a small walk-in closet. There was no attendant present, or nearby, if needed. It's very apparent the cardio equipment isn't being serviced because it squeaks. Therefore, it made it very unpleasant to workout while having to hear it, even while listening to music on our headphones. The...

We recently spent one week in this resort, our second visit, and were not disappointed. Although the resort itself is a little older and could maybe benefit from a little update, our stay was exceptional. We requested, and were allocated, a villa overlooking the golf course which allowed us direct access to the walking trails and a patio which received...

This is a timeshare that is well maintained and very centrally located. Property and units are lovely. Kitchens fairly well equipped and a dining table for four. The bed is quite nice but the toilet paper is ridiculous. Silly comment maybe but annoying. There is a cafe to order food by the pool.
