Lovely property, with great pool area, lots of activities for families. Room was beautiful with a terrace to lookout. If you want to eat in the amenities are excellent inside your room. Location a little bit isolated if you like to be in the middle of the action you may wish to consider other options. Service was excellent, pool bar...

We went with some friends for my birthday weekend. Marriott DSV never disappoints. The units are clean and updated, the golf course is gorgeous to look at (and probably great to play, I wouldn't know), and the laid-back atmosphere of the desert generally makes me happy! It's a wonderful location for a group trip, too- between deluxe rooms, 1-bedroom and...

It was an 8 hr drive for us but Bob helped us checked in very quickly. We have a one bedroom unit , first level across the pool area. We...

I just got home from a weekend at the villas I must say we will not be staying there again. I found a huge water bug in the room!! We needed new sheets for the bed and that cost us an extra $45.00. We made our way to the pool which was disgusting. There is green slime on the bottom...

When you think of Marriott Resort, you think luxury, relaxing, and clean! This resort is completely the opposite! Driving up, we were excited! Beautiful rocks, water fountains, flowers, the works. The check in desk was completely unaware of our check in and could not locate the reservation. Once I showed them my email conformation from my phone, then they decided...
