Very clean Bathroom doors-- check in time till 4:00
The hotel has an excellent staff. Cindy, our cabana attendant was awesome. She would check on us regularly, brought us multiple buckets of ice (without us asking), and was very sweet to the kids. I think every staff interaction I had was wonderful. The hotel is really geared towards families and they have a ton of activities for kids in addition to Splashtopia. The restaurant on site, Blu Ember, is wonderful. They had deals going on during our stay where the kids would eat free and there were a lot of options for the kids both at breakfast and dinner. The walls are thin and we could hear everything that was being said next to us. The families next to us were not being particularly loud, it's just that the walls are paper thin. Our bathroom had ants, which is not that big of a deal, but made me feel like maybe things weren't that clean. There are no elevators to reach the second floor. This is not a problem. We prefer to take the stairs. However, the building we stayed in (#24) had uneven stairs. So the first step was huge and then all the rest of the stairs would be the same size and then the last stair would be larger again. Both my sons fell the first time because they were not expecting such a large step. If you have little ones I would recommend getting a first floor room, however, with the walls being so thin = noise issue, I don't know if you want someone above you.
Fun pool! Great family hotel.
The customer service was top notch!
Splashtopia There were several entrances to access the pool area although you could not get towels at most of the entrances and had to walk a good distance to get towels. That was not convenient.
My favorite resort and retreat.
Loved our room and bedding. The view was of the golf course. Room was quiet and very pleasant. The water park was unbelievably packed ... just too many people in the area but all in all it was well managed ...
Bathrooms are finished with cheap fixtures, AC very loud, walls are thin and e could hear kids next door crying till 12:30.
Nice pool area and pool friendly staff comfy bed - kind of old looking curtains and furniture but really who cares for a decent price! I would stay there again Noisy air conditioner but aren't they all?
the warm cookie at check in needs some updating
Hotel was in a perfect location, near restaurants, shopping and downtown Palm Desert. Staff was friendly, and the lobby and bathrooms were really clean. Mattress was firm but pillows were nice. Other room amenities were excellent - TV, bathroom, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, etc. The elevator was dirty and smelled bad, and the air conditioning unit smelled a little like urine (probably from water issues). Sheets were a little on the rough side. Overall, very minor issues given the price.
I really enjoyed everything about this hotel. It was quiet, comfortable, afforadable and clean. The staff was very nice at check-in. I had zero complaints about this hotel.
Close to restaurants and movies Didnt get the warm chocolate chip cookie
Room was clean and centrally located. The staff went out of their way to help us out.
Easy to get around. Nice pool area. Good rooms
Breakfast was great. The many items offered were still available toward the end of the breakfast hours. Rooms were clean and quiet. After arriving very late, we needed to change our room to 2 queen beds. The front desk clerk was happy to make the change.
Staff were very helpful . My 81 year old mom and I were travelling through. She has a hard time walking and they made sure our room was on the main floor close to the breakfast area and lobby. All good except I could have used a USB port for charging my phone.
Close to shopping, quiet hotel
The room was nice; bed comfortable; quiet. Lobby area is just somewhat inviting. The staff was cordial, but not really friendly.
The hotel only had two floors accessible from INSIDE the hotel a welcome change from hotels where access to your room is from a walkway! The rooms were clean, big and extremely comfortable, especially the 2 queen sized beds! I was a little disappointed that the hotel only seemed to have one ice machine located on the first floor. But that is a minor glitch because for the price this place was fabulous!!!
Hotel was located close to shopping..movie theater..restaurants Breakfast was disappointing
Nothing Location made traffic very noisy
Location Better breakfast options
The stall was great-loved everything except the pool The pool was extremely small-was very disappointed-there was 8 people in the pool and it was crowded-that needs to be address in the website-I came for r&r -swim relax sleep and read-was there for 3 days and only went in the pool once because of this
The size of the room We were placed in a room right next to the elevator, so it got really loud in the morning as people were coming down for breakfast and check out

It's location! Dirty carpet and difficulty using faucet in bathtub/shower!
All the individuals who work there we're fantastic! From the valet to front desk to the steakhouse restaurant! I was able to get a really good deal on one of the hotel.com websites, otherwise I would not have been able to stay at the Ritz! My friends and I were treated like royality...a huge shout out especially to Steven!!!! He is at the steakhouse restaurant and was PERFECT!!!! Thank you. Everything was perfect!
Love the resort itself and the staff Didn't like the bed, too aoft
great hotel, very satisfied, great prices on food and drink , little bit less expensive than most 4 star hotels
Room was very quiet and comfortable. Room service was great and fast. Very large room with wonderfull bathroom. Since I got a good deal on my room they stuck me in one with a wall as my view. I asked to change and they said no. I don't think they were that busy. Not very friendly when I was asking. I was very disappointed and it seemed like they were upset that I got a good deal on the room.
The room was large with a nice view on the 12th floor. The bathroom had a large bathtub My wife enjoyed. The food was excellent But a little high price. The food was expensive.
Location and facilities were a value for price paid.
This place was amazing! We just wanted to get away for a night for my boyfriends birthday. We layed by the pool and had drinks, had dinner, gambled, and had a great time. We can't wait to go back!! By the way, our room was AMAZING! We got a balcony room which was great, plus the king bed was a Cal King. Luxury!
