Palm Desert Resort is beautiful! It includes manicured grounds, water features, flowers, birds, and an interesting multilevel lobby. Our room was decorated with the latest trends and was clean. The bathroom was filled with granite/marble, had a luxurious soaking tub, was lit brightly, and had a separate shower. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony as well as using the pool. That said, a few issues to note: the pond throughout the property needs to be cleaned! We didn’t feel most of the meals we ate on the property were prepared very well, with the exception of Rockwood. For this kind of resort, the food was a bit subpar. The “aviary” features beautiful birds in small cages; much could be done to enhance their quality of life and to create a true aviary. The spa is only open a few days/week so we didn’t get to use it, and that was a disappointment. Overall, we had a very nice, relaxing time. There is lots to do at the resort and I definitely would go back!

My tv didn’t work right at check in had to wait hours for a technician to replace the batteries in remote. The room next to us had a big loud barking dog. When I called the front desk they said there were no animals allowed on the property but they couldn’t do anything about “service” dogs. This dog would bark every time someone would walked down the hall. Seriously sounded like a Great Dane! Other than that we enjoyed our stay!

No limits on how many people were in the pool. Six feet distancing was not happening, in and around the pool. Wearing masks when walking around the pool area was not happening. Way too many people in the pool on Friday and Saturday.
