It's very private and quiet the rooms have everything you might need. The office was sweet and accommodating. The pool was awesome so warm and enjoyable I love that I can have a beer out by the pool and lot of grassy cool areas to sit.

Girls Weekend

Pros: Everything the rooms, the pool, the hospitality
Cons: the only I can think is no sponge to wash dishes. Sorry there is a dishwasher but we are old schools. We were using paper towels to wash the dishes.
Location: The location was just a couple of blocks from El Paseo Street, I guess the RODEO Drive of Palm Springs. I went to hang-out at the pool, so I did.
Went on a girls week-end. We rented 3 rooms, a total of 8 of us. All the staff were l very nice and all the rooms were very spacious and clean. The pool was great and very large. The landscape was beautiful. We are definitely going back.

Convenient to Palm Desert's El Paseo Shopping

Pros: So close to El Paseo! I liked the restricted entry.
Cons: None
Location: Shopping! While the weather is cool, hiking and bicycling. Great dining. And don't forget date milkshakes at Shields!
We had a quick trip to Palm Desert, having to return the next morning. Our stay at Shadow Mountain Resort was perfect. It was only four (4) blocks from where we had to be, close to our celebratory dining facility, and was so quiet and comfortable that our rest was assured. Staff was polite,respectful, and informative. The room opened up on the most scenic view. It was just the right place for us.

Great location!

Pros: Location. Very peaceful and tucked away from main road.
Cons: Update room. Especially bed and frame and updated toilet that didn't rock.
Location: Close to Indian Wells tennis stadium, restaurants and El Paseo.
Close to El Paseo and to restaurants, but not located too close to main roads so it was peaceful. Room could use some major updating. We had an awesome view of the mountains. Very nice BIG pool.

Very disappointing

Pros: The only thing I liked about this hotel was that it had a nice pool. And the ladies in the coffee shop were very pleasant.
Cons: The photos of this hotel show beautiful condos however we were given a studio at the back end of the property which looked like a run down hotel. The smell was awful, so damp and musty. We asked for another room but it was not much better. The decor is from the 70s. The entry and bathroom area was run down - the wood was so old and painted over numerous times, it was even cracking. The pictures of the studios look nice but believe me, it is depressing going in the door, and the smell is terrible. I would definitely never stay there again.

Perfect accommodations.

Pros: Everything
Cons: Larger towels for swimming.
Location: See above
The room was clean,spacious for a studio and well decorated. I would recommend staying there. The resort is very large and well maintained. Located only a few minutes from Alpaseo. Alpaseo has many restaurants, stores of various kinds,and many art galleries.

Great location, close & convenient to El Paseo & Westfield

Our condo-sized accommodations were spacious & comfortable. I would have preferred one queen bed versus two doubles. Good location and facilities were family-friendly. Active tennis program was also attractive. I thought, for the price, it was worth it.
