Great hotel!!Posted May 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
Everything was great!! Food, Room, Bar and the Pool was great!! I will return again. I've stayed at the hotel for business and decided to bring the family and they enjoyed. My kids even told me they liked it better than the MGM pool in Vegas. I'm not sure about that but they loved it.

Nice long weekend with small childrenPosted May 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
This was a perfect spot for a long weekend with young children. The hotel is very family-friendly with daily kid-friendly activities, and our room was clean and vacuumed every day. Multiple options for dining onsite was also a plus. We went to the pool area only during late afternoon each day which was much quieter but if you're the type who plans to spend the whole day poolside know that it can get very crowded. Hotel staff are very good about preventing guests from saving pool chairs and will remove towels that have been "abandoned" for longer than 15 minutes.

did not clean the room until 6pm because I think they were full and maybe not enough stuff. The stuff were very nice and helpful, did everything they could to satisfy the gests needs.

you are on parole!Posted May 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
About a year ago I gave 5 stars to this hotel and been going there ever since. However this time, my experience at this hotel was horrible. we were told we can bring ice chest to the pool but no alcohols. which was fine with us. However, we were harassed by pool boy 4 times in one afternoon to open up my ice chest to check for alcohols. Every time we told him we only had water and juice for the kids, he wanted us to open it up so that he can check for himself. when we complain to general manager, he offered is a free drink next time we come. I'll NEVER go back to this place again.

We so appreciate your five star rating from previous visits and are very sorry to hear that we fell short during your recent visit. Unfortunately we did not handle the situation correctly as it is our policy not to allow coolers at the pool. We do however have exceptions for medical situations and baby care needs. We understand the disruptive nature of how this was handled and we take full responsibility. We do not want to lose you as our guest and hope that you will reconsider and join us again one day soon for a return visit.

Good SpotPosted May 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
All was great. Nice pool area. There was a small mix up in whether the resort fee was included in our Hotels.com package (upon checking the rep said it was, when we checked out another rep said it wasn't), but they still credited us back the internet charge which is included in the resort fee.

Just a weekend getawayPosted May 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
Getting to the room was like a maze and far from the reception area. I suggest getting a pool view and not a resort view. Although it was closer to pool elevators and vending. All else was great.

Indian Wells best resort for the moneyPosted May 12, 2014
Pros: Room, pool, amenities are all top notch.
Cons: Beds are a little worn and the Cava restaurant is not the best for breakfast but overall a great value.
Location: Wet n' Wild for the kids, Ruth's Chris.
We've stayed at other resorts in the Palm Desert, Indian Wells area and this place is hands down the best value for the money.

The staff at the Esmeralda were particularly accomodating. The sweet gentleman who checked us in listened to my story of frustration about my making reservations at the wrong Esmeralda location and having to "eat" the $270 for the night because I didn't catch it within the cancelation period. I was laughlingly telling him about how this room turned into the most expensive overnight stay because we had to pay for two rooms and he immediately offered to upgrade us and waive a small fee. It was absolutely not required of him but he stepped up to assure that we were not disappointed again. I have noticed this kind of service on other occasions at other Marriott locations and I want to commend the training that allows for this kind of "over and above" care for the customer. I will always recommend this hotel and I left feeling like we were truly taken care of

Beautiful hotel. The only problem we had was getting any type of service at the pool. We waited 5 solid minutes at the pool bar for a bartender to notice us. When he did and we asked for drinks he said " ya I see you it's gonna be a few minutes" after which he cleaned the bar and talked to other customers and the other bartender completely ignoring us.
