Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The good: 2nd floor room view very nice; room layout good; grounds excellent; location great. The bad: for some reason, our 2nd floor room had the loudest, most annoying engine type noise nearly all of the time. It must have been the air conditioner units cycling on and off all night. We didn’t complain because it would’ve been a hassle to move. Probably a terrible design flaw in our unit but we can’t believe other people haven’t complained. Something Marriott needs to address. Avoid room 2296, building 746.

The Villas II at Marriot Desert Springs is a great place to stay. The golf course there is one of a kind, probably the most beautifull course I have ever played so if you are a golfer you need to play it. Villas has great pool gardens and we spent a lot of time there. If you are going to Palm Springs I recommend The Villas II at Marriot Desert Springs.

Guest services are great, second floor views were gorgeous, comfortable accommodations. Many pools including a quiet pool for relaxation. Would recommend trying to get a 2nd floor unit for the views. Kitchen is great if you do not eat out every meal, has most everything you want. Outdoor BBQ also available.

We stayed the first week of September with another couple sharing a two-bedroom villa. We selected the Jasmine Court option and we were very pleased how quite it was during our stay. The rooms were spacious, clean, and only until the last night of our six night stay did we hear our neighbors. We did not use any of the amenities outside the room, but found the kitchen full stocked for meals when eating in. The only “down side” to some might be that it is a short drive to downtown Palm Springs, but overall we would return and recommend the villas to other travelers.

I really enjoyed staying at the Marriot Villas, the down side is the restaurant on property closes super early or maybe it was only open for lunch which I don’t recall it being open (The Waters Edge Bar and Grill) so one would have to drive next door to the JW or you can take a shuttle if everyone in your party plans on drinking. Although, In my opinion, I wouldn’t waste my time on overpriced food and drinks. You are better off in Downtown Palm Springs or restaurants 5 mins away. The amenities at the club house are typical; a gym, pool, lounge area. I have to mention there was a problem with the ac in the weight room, when I told the front desk the lady said it would take an hour for a technician to come. I was glad a housekeeper was smart enough to use a door stopper to keep the door open. Nonetheless, came when its was 111 so didn’t stay at the pool too long. Their isn’t much to do when its this hot in Palm Springs except maybe the casino or enjoy a dinner out later in the evening when it cools down!

At check in, Marriott Associate advised that they didn't have our RCI one-week reservation in their system. When they were shown the RCI reservation number and details, they refused to honor the reservation despite having rooms available. After 3 hrs, we were offered a room at the nightly rate. No apologies, no discounts, no comps, no remedies. This will be this Marriot Gold member's LAST STAY with any Marriott property. Extremely disappointing service level.

If there's negative review rate .. I would give this place - negative reviews First of all they have the worse customer service! I called the day before letting them know the view preference but they said they cannot reserve a room. I tried calling again this morning at 9am they said the check in is at 4pm And they cannot help me at all I got at 3:15 waited 1.5 hrs and finally I got help but one of the front clerk name Kiara that helped me apparently doesn't know how to read map. I specifically told her a want a golf course view and she showed me the pic of the view and she said it will be upstairs I said it's fine we are still young as long as I have the golf course view and not a parking lot!! And guess what!! I got the parking lot I came back and talked the guest relation officer and another useless employee on the payroll! They said that nothing they can do! It's freaking 115 degrees and I know for sure they have a better room available Than what we got! So as a manager he doesn't have a power to correct the mistake of their employee. I got to the room and it's ashamed this is Marriott and they don't even have shampoo/conditioner at all!! Only 1 small soap!!! So I need to go to the store and buy my own toiletries!! Anyway!! Watch out time share owners! They will treat us bad!!! Once they got you and your money! They don't care! This place is a POS!! I only need to stay 2 nights they cannot even help me!! Bad location, bad management and bad over all!! No customer service!

The bugs in the rooms are outrageous. I understand being in the desert and being hot, but we expect to not sleep with bugs crawling on the ceiling. I could even look past one bug, maybe even two…but the first night we killed 5 crickets (bedroom ceiling, bathroom, kitchen) and had others chirping in the room at all hours that we couldn’t find. We called the front desk and they offered to move us, but it was in a building far from the pool and we had specifically wanted to be near a pool with a slide. We figured we would give it one more night. Night two was also sleepless with crickets appearing from nowhere on the ceiling above the bed and crawling on the floor in the bathroom. It was like two nights of no sleep and playing “the floor is lava” for fear of stepping on a cricket. For night 3 we switched to another 2 bedroom villa near the pool. Within an hour we were getting a cricket off the bedroom ceiling and calling the front desk. We would rather get our owner points back and go home. They can’t help with that so we will call ownership in the morning. I certainly can’t relax on a vacation with bugs crawling all over in the room at night. So gross. Like a roach motel. Definitely does not measure up for a Westin/Marriott property. I do NOT recommend coming to this property in the summer if bugs are this big of a problem. Whatever they are spraying isn’t working. In April/spring break 2022 we had no issues…but that was also before the Westin/Marriott merge….so far, not impressed and we are loyal platinum elite members and family is Chairman’s Club with Marriott Vacation Club. Hopefully we can get the points back and leave. Sad thing to hope on a 7 day vacation!!

2 bedroom suite was amazingly spacious. Nice they have pickleball, pool and ping pong available to enjoy and you can borrow the equipment. Fantastic they have water and ice at the pools to keep you hydrated. The grounds look amazing. A bonus that they have several electric car charging stations. Housekeeping was very responsive to requests for more towels, soap, etc. Disappointed they don't have insects under control. I texted them stating there was a cockroach in our sink under a glass ( I trapped it with a glass since it was alive) and we had already found some ants, a spider and what appeared to be an inchworm and I asked them to spray around our room. All they did was remove the cockroach. Two days later and I had found 3 more inchworms in our room- yes, alive. At that point, they agreed to have pest control spray inside our room while we were gone for the day. Gross. I understand it's the desert and there are lots of insects. We did not have our doors open except to quickly enter and exit. We didn't keep our balcony door open. I found one more dead inchworm after they sprayed. This is just simply unacceptable. This is a Marriott Vacation Club Resort where you expect it not to be a roach motel. I'm a loyal Marriott customer and expect not to be sleeping with insects. The pools also need to be cleaned. How hard is it to have someone take the net on a pole to remove the major tree debris? Not hard, but it's not done. There was such a large hairball in the pool on our last day that my daughter said "That's it, I'm done with this place". Really, Marriott? Your reputation is supposed to be great, but I'll be looking elsewhere next time I stay in the area.

The resort was very nice. We had a two bedroom suite and when I say two bedroom, it was two completely separate rooms. One had a full kitchen, and the other room was next door with a small kitchenette. Great for two couples to enjoy. The lower rating is mostly because of the pools. The pool areas were very dirty and the pools were cloudy and dirty. We went to two pool areas and both had the same problem. When we got out of the pool and went to our chairs, our feet were black from dirt from the pool decking. Doesn't look like there is any cleaning done. We were there the week before Memorial weekend and it was not crowded at all.
