“Pictures are better than in person!!”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

We had been planning our trip from Canada there for 6 months and have to say that it was very disappointing!!
The outside is very deceiving because once you get into the building it is very grungy and outdated. We were staying in a two bedroom villa and when we opened the door all we could smell was urine so we immediately phoned the front desk and asked to be moved - which they did.
The kitchen was barely stocked and actually missing things from a set of six so we had to phone the front desk to let them know so we wouldn't be charged for the items. I have to say the only good thing about the suite is that the beds were comfortable but everything else was the cheapeast quality.....
The pool was very nice but nowhere on the web site does it say that there is a height restriction for the slides and travelling with my kids it would've been nice to know! They claim you can't go on the big slide unless you're 48inches and measure you with an old broom stick - my kids were both too short to go on it which was bizarre seeing as we had just come from Disneyland and they were tall enough there?? When I let them know that they responded by asking me if I'd like them to measure the stick...not very friendly!
I would definitley never stay there again nor would I recommend it to anyone...

Let me start by saying to the only reason we stayed at Palm Canyon Resort because my mother in law has a timeshare there. We had visited my mother in law there once before, so we kind of knew what to expect.

We arrived late at night on our first day, and were placed in a room that had not yet been cleaned by housekeeping - in fact, the room was absolutely disgusting. The manager was kind enough to upgrade us to a 1 bedroom suite because of the mix up, which definitely made our day... Like most of Palm Springs, this hotel is rather dated - the furniture was all pastel pink and the phone had a dial up internet jack on the side - I couldn't help but laugh when I saw that! Don't expect wifi here either - in fact, your cell phone won't even work - my husband and I had horrible reception for the entire stay... if you wanted to use the internet you had to go into the main office and pay to use the internet there or walk down the street with your smartphone until you were away from the resort... Really??

What is the hotel's saving grace is the pool complex. We had our son with us and he loved the pool slides!! The bar / restaurant out by the pool was also a really nice perk. I took advantage of the spa as well & got a facial, though it was very expensive.

The hotel did have a lot of activities to choose from on various days of the week, though we chose not to. The hotel itself is located close to downtown Palm Springs so you are close to restaurants, shopping and all the rest.

We arrived and were given a very nice one bedroom on the first floor facing the pool. The view was great. This place is a little outdated but I would go back there in a second. A couple of days later I found out our nephew and niece stayed there with their grandmother when they were children (they are now in their mid-30’s). The pool was heated to 85 degrees (our weather while there was in the 60’s) and the hot tub was perfect. You cannot beat the price. We stayed from Sunday to Thursday and with tax it was just over $500.00. I highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the pool

We escaped for the weekend in search of warm sunshine and Palm Canyon Resort in Palm Springs was the perfect destination. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, they provided an assortment of great activities, and the pool & pool bar were amazing. There isn't an actual restaurant onsite I don't think, but downtown Palm Springs had so much to offer that it didn't matter. The pool bar serves a great variety of breakfast and lunch items, and offers bar food and pizza all day, even as room service. Our 2-bedroom villa was spacious and was way more than we even needed for the weekend. The decor was outdated and the lighting wasn't great but it more than fit the bill for our general expectations for a weekend getaway. It was definitely warm enough to bask in the sun in a bikini in February, which was AMAZING.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sunrise building, and our 1st floor balcony faced the busy street and mountain to t...

We are Monarch Grand owners. We could not get a reservation on our last trip to Palm Springs, so we decided to use our day privelages at this resort because we do like the pool area so much.

It certainly was not as easy as they make it our in the sales presentation we had to speak to five different people and they were not very eager to let us use it for the day only. But after asking for the manager on duty we were able to use the pool area for the day.

We like how the kid area is on the other side of the pool and the pool area is very clean. our only complaint is they do not allow outside drinks in so you do have pay for there pricey cocktails or get creative! Nice place for the day however not quite sure it is really a spa?

Great place for a family vacation. There were 16 of us and we had 2 large units. Very kid friendly and the pools are wonderful. Food is also good from the snack bar and the drinks are always tasty. Spacious, clean, well layout. Staff helpful and friendly. Definitely would go back.
