a bunch of lies
When I bought a gift card for my wife they said they would get me a pass for the outside pool and spa so I could relax with my wife after her massage. They lied. When I showed up with my wife on the day of her massage they tried to tell me they never said that. They now sant to sell me a pass for the day. They will promise t you the world when they want your money, but lie to you after. Would not give them my money again. A lot of nicer spas in the desert.

My Annual Indulgence
I am in Palm Desert every year to attend the BNP Paribas Open with my girlfriend. Our indulgence is to make sure we take one day away from tennis and spend a "day at the spa" at the JW Marriott Resort & Spa. The facility is gorgeous, and once inside we do not want to leave. When you purchase a spa treatment, you have "all day" access to the fitness center and the spa facility.....we literally get into our robes, and do not take them off (except for the massage part), for a few hours. The rainforest showers are to die for (once you figure out the settings). The wet steam room is misted with eucalyptus oil scent...ahhhhh. Indoors, the hot tub is clothing optional (don't worry, ladies and gentleman have their own facilities). You can lounge in the relaxation area and have spa water or tea, and cookies. Outdoors is a salt water lap pool (bathing suit required). And we always have lunch poolside too (with wine). Best day ever. Can't wait for my next visit in March 2012 (their March special this year is 60 mins Naturopathica Aromatherapy massage for $105 (regular $145). Did I mention you can spend ALL DAY at the spa (8:00am to closing 6:00pm) with in/out privileges.

Nice spa but bogus ad on spafinder
I got a spa finder gift card because a person knew I was going to Desert Springs Marriott and when I called to make an appt, I was told that while the hotel promotes spa finder, they don't accept their gift cards. THAT MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL. "hey we think the service is great but we wont accept it." Kinda lame if you ask me. Fraudulent on spa finders part and on the hotels part.

Fabulous Spa Gift
My husband gave me a gift certificate for a spa treatment, it was the best gift ever...my massage with Octavio was nothing short of Fabulous...I am definitely booking my next appt. and would suggest this spa to all my friends and family.

Great Experience
The spa at the JW Marriott was a great experience. You check in and pay for your treatment first (which was a bit unusual) but speeds up the departure because you don't need to wait in line to pay when you're done. The facilities for the spa were great. The showers already had towels laid out on the private dressing benches and the staff replenished them within minutes. The steam rooms were gorgeous with sparkling glass tiles. There is a cafe inside the spa which made it convenient to have an actual lunch without having to get out of your robe. The therapists were prompt and courteous. I had a hot stone massage and my friend got the deep tissue. Both of us enjoyed our therapists and treatments. It is a wonderful spa - I hope to visit again soon.

Facilities & Amenities

The JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort offers a good number of activities to keep guests of all ages busy. Sports aficionados can tee off on one of two Ted Robinson-designed championship golf courses—The Palm and The Valley—or practice their backhand on one of 20 lighted tennis courts. Instruction is offered for both fitness endeavors for guests wanting to brush up on their game.

While the grown-ups play, younger guests, ages 4 to 12, can have fun at the Kid's Klub, with organized activities like boat rides, scavenger hunts, and animal tours. The resort's aquatic oasis comprises pools and Jacuzzis with water and golf views, along with an adults-only spa pool. On the weekends, guests can dance into the wee hours at the on-site Costas Nightclub.

Rooms & Dining

The JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort boasts nearly 900 guest accommodations, 51 of which are suites, and many offer sweeping views of the Santa Rosa Mountain cascade. Room amenities include private balconies or patios, minibars, in-room safes, custom bedding with triple sheets, and entertainment centers with TVs and Sony CD players. Decorated in granite, limestone, and Italian marble, graciously appointed bathrooms include separate tubs and shower facilities. Some rooms offer living, dining, and pantry areas; the Chairman's Suite even features a baby grand piano.

With seven restaurants on site, guests can select from an extensive menu of international cuisines. Diners can sample steak, chicken, and seafood fare in a dramatic fashion at Mikado Japanese Steakhouse, a teppanyaki-style dining venue where Samurai-inspired chefs expertly prepare meals in front of guests. Italian aficionados will enjoy Ristorante Tuscany, while fine dining can be had at Lake View Restaurant, which offers California and spa cuisine served buffet-style for breakfast and lunch and prime rib and seafood buffet dinners on Fridays and Saturdays. For a more casual setting, the poolside Oasis Grill is a good choice. Spa Bistro serves organic dishes (the portion-controlled spa menu is offered at all restaurants), while the Lobby Bar features specialty drinks and fresh sushi. Kosher, vegetarian, and vegan diets can be catered to upon request.
