We stayed at Villas I for the first time - first time ever in Palm Desert. Loved the proximity to the JW Marriott, attractions (Living Desert, Joshua Tree, Flea Market, Palm Springs Aerial Tram), shopping/restaurants in the Coachella Valley.
Check-in was effortless - our agent tried to obtain a corner hotel unit - to no avail. Once we checked in it was obvious why corner units are prized. At least we had a 2nd floor unit - much preferred.
The arrangement of the hotel units is strange - kitchenware/tableware/utensils in the dresser by the beds, not by the microwave/refrigerator; one small table with two upholstered chairs; no arm chair or love seat. A nice-sized room, but it could be so much better. The soaking tub (probably a jacuzzi before renovations) is wasted space - expand the kitchen there, why not?
Beds were comfortable, balcony nice, but with four people, we needed to take upholstered chairs outside to eat! Unit was clean, but it took some repeated calls to get all the linens and table/dinnerware we needed for four people.
Our neighbors invited us to see their one-bedroom unit - try to get a one-bedroom if it is available - much preferred!!
The bathroom fan needed repairing and it was repaired almost immediately. Our in-room safe was locked open and it took two days to get it fixed - poor communication by front desk.
Used the amenities at JW a couple times and they were excellent, as were the pool areas, recreation, and laundry facilities at Villas I.
The place is beautiful, and with a one-bedroom, it would have been a perfect vacation.
