We own this resort and vacationed here in the past. (We like to hike)- We stayed in a one bedroom with 2 baths.. Fully equipped kitchen- including storage containers with lids which I like- as we always cook in the condo.
Within a block on Washington Street are shopping centers with grocery store, pharmacy - Resort has pools - and hot tub and an extensive fitness center. CHARGES FOR WIFI- $3 DAY , but free wifi in the fitness center and Starbucks a block away on Washington Street.. Bedroom large and comfortable- one bathroom has tub and the other a shower-- adequate space with patio off living room and bedroom....
There are grills and game room- would be a great place for a family to stay with swimming pools and quiet, private resort.. It is in a complex with private homes whose residents share the fitness center and tennis courts-- There is golf near but did not use and do not know any details about golf option. They have day trips in the area and lots of information on attractions... Adequate parking and gated community.....Temp over 100 during the summer-- so visit any other time for good desert weather..
We always enjoy staying here and professional staff- only drawback is paying for wifi.....

Room Tip: You can hear people on second floor-- so would be quieter upstairs--- but on first floor have 2 patios--all condo building well placed- suggest ask for one near pool and way from highway traffic-- although we have never heard traffic.. Some building have a small hot tub in front you can ask for if you prefer

The resort was great for spring break, the week prior to Easter. Even though the resort was completely full, the pools always had plenty of open lounge chairs and it wasn't a problem getting on a tennis court. The crowd was mostly older, with some family gatherings spanning three generations. There's no real kid activities, nor a restaurant or bar, and it's not walkable to anything, so I took off one star. Still, much better than the Hyatt Regency and Renaissance Esmeralda, we checked both out one afternoon and couldn't believe how crowded the pool areas were.

Pros:
Not noisy at all
Pools weren't overcrowded, and had plenty of lounge chairs.
Five tennis courts were very accessible
Nice, small kitchen allowed us to eat in when we wanted
Big deck on our studio
Lost of nice gas grills on the pool deck and by the hot tubs
No resort fees.

Cons:
Not walkable to any stores or restaurants
Although the resort has lots of sidewalk areas between homes/rentals, they do not allow scooters, roller blades, skate boards, etc.
Seemed like a retirement community. Not a lot of activities or things going on.
No restaurant or bar. Not a problem, but would have been nice.
No longer has ping pong tables.

DESERT BREEZES 2/23/13 – 3/2/13

We really enjoyed our week’s stay at Desert Breezes. The resort would be considered one of the smaller ones, particularly compared to the several Marriott developments in the area.There are not a lot of onsite activities (restaurants, etc) though there is an excellent exercise facility. It’s very nicely landscaped, very walkable, easy access to the units from the roads, super clean, and quiet. It has a wonderful location, right at the intersection of two major roads, and is minutes away from a great golf facility, the College Golf Center (it’s a huge driving range and instruction center).

The 1BR unit itself was large and very nice, though the bathroom area would probably be considered somewhat dated (no biggie for us). The buildings seemed to provide maximum privacy and maximum view from all units; at least that’s what we had from ours. The staff was helpful and not pushy. Immediately upon our arrival home we set the wheels in motion to go back – this time for two weeks. We had some initial indecision, and took this locale on the urging of our SFX contact lady. It was terrific advice.

.We spent a week in a studio. It was fairly large with good kitchen facilities, a divider between sofa sleeper and bed, and comfortable bathroom. Bedding was exceptional and queen bed was very comfortable. The unit was very clean and well appointed with flat screen tv. The tv was set up to be directly viewed from the bed. It would have been helpful to be able to swivel it so it was viewable from the sofa too. All the staff was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend this resort to other travelers and will return again.

Room Tip: The studio is large for two but would be cramped for sleeping four although there is a sofa bed in the living area. The kitchen is well appointed. The location is great and the discounted golf was a nice addition.

This is my 2nd review of this property and my 2nd year in a row to stay here. I must also disclose that this is a timeshare location that I purchased about 18 months ago at auction for $13.04 (yes, this is not a typo). So on my first 2 week stay last year, I was pleasantly surprised. This year was the same, with some improvement too. I stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. The property is older (80's) but the grounds are very well maintained. There are 3 pools, and about 10 hot tubs. There is a clubhouse with 5 tennis courts on the grounds too. It is located a 3 minute walk from the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens.

PROS

Self contained suites with full appliances: full size refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, blender, toaster, hand mixer and all the cooking implements and dishes one might need for an extended stay. There is also a safe and 2 robes. The suite has a flat screen TV in the living room and an old style TV in the bedroom. The couch is pull out and can sleep 2. The internet used to be a BIG negative, as the bandwidth was very low and they blocked all the good sites like YouTube and Facebook. This is now remedied, but you must pay $15 a week. Parking is still free.

CONS

Pool area closes at 10 pm and is now onerously enforced in all hot tubs and pools. Seems a bit early/and or silly to have such rules, but the clientele here go to bed early. Bathrooms toilet areas are very small, large people will have an issue with this (you can barely close the door when you stand in it). The walls are super thin, and you have to keep the noise down, lest others here your personal business.

Don't expect a wild time, just expect quiet times; the average person staying here is at retirement age. All is all, another great couple of weeks. I'll be down again next year in Feb/March.

Room Tip: Do not attend the free "owners night" wine and cheese party Thursday: it is a pitch for timeshares.
