    About this area

    Palm Desert

    Located in Palm Desert, Shadow Mountain Resort is next to a golf course. Empire Polo Club and PGA West Golf Course are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore San Jacinto Mountains and Wet'n'Wild Palm Springs. Check out an event or a game at Indian Wells Tennis Garden, and consider making time for Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests love the resort's quiet location.

    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The property, location, room, and amenities were everything we expected and more. From the moment we arrived, the staff was helpful and professional. Our room had an amazing view. Plus, we played golf several days in a row and there were many excellent courses to choose from. Plus, the location of this resort is within blocks of the trendy, upbeat downtown area. Two nights we decided to eat in; the grill at the property was clean and afforded us a chance to enjoy dinner without the hassle of going out. We definitely plan to return to this resort in the future. Great experience. Wonderful relaxation. Perfect decision to stay at Shadow Mountain Resort.

    Relaxing Palm Desert Resort

    Although Shadow Mountain Resort is an older property, it is very well maintained and in a beautiful residential location in Palm Desert. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Our stay was brief (two nights and one full day), but we found it to be quite relaxing and look forward to a return visit when we can stay longer and see more of the sights in Palm Desert. My one suggestion is that the cafe & bar on the property stay open through the early evening.I would definitely recommend this resort to others.
