The property was great. The view and the landscaping was spectacular. My only concern was there was an ongoing construction and we were not informed until we checked in. The construction was right on top of our room from 9am till 6pm and it was really loud. The hotel gave us a free buffet breakfast to compensate with this. Overall, it was still a good overnight stay :)

This is a very child friendly hotel.

Pros: The staff was great. The food at the restaurants was excellent.
Cons: The cleanliness!
Location: Close to the Living Desert. It is by two golf courses. The hotel supplies bikes and there are tennis courts. Great pools and two spas.
There was black hair all over the tub and the towels and pillowcases were stained. There was a big hard sticky spot at the foot of the bed. We had the air conditioner set at 65, and I am sure that was not the correct temperature. It felt more like 75. Parking was not close and very full.

Mini VACA

Pros: Location and pool
Cons: Service and food by the pool
Location: They have a great street El Paseo full of restaurants and shops 10 min away!
We were very happy with our stay at The Renaissance Indian Wells Resort&Spa! Room was very spacious and bed very comfortable would of liked a few extra pillows but in all very nice. Bathroom has all the nessasary items and private toilet room with very cool retro wallpaper! We had a garden view and it was beautiful views of the mountains with the best sunset view . The pool is very nice but very shallow and full of sand from the beach. The water tempature was a little warm considering it was over 100'outside! I guess they can't control Mother Nature ! My biggest complaint by the pool was the food ( horrible ) and the drinks! $14.00 per mixed drink really by the pool this is not the Ritz Carlton! The food was not good! The croissant sandwich was so stale horrible no one ever comes by after they serve you to see how everything was? But pool does supply endless towels and ice water! As for the Cava restaurant we had the buffet breakfast $24.00 was very good with many stations and fresh baked goods , pancakes and eggs made to order! Great deal! We also tried the bar late one evening and were pleasantly surprised to find Moet Chandon $10.00 for a split !!!! Very well priced considering by the pool a subpar cocktail was $14.00! They have music playing and a few TV,s and lots of very comfy sofas to lounge on very nice. This was the best deal for a 2 night getaway and they gave us a late checkout a big plus so we could use the pool before we left!

Loved our vacation!

Each member of the family was happy with this hotel. The pools and poolside service were fabulous. They have a beach, a kiddy pool, a waterfall pool. The service for food and drinks at the pool was great, even during a crowded long weekend. The service generally was great, with doormen holding the door for you and being called by your name.
