An absolutely perfect setting for what we needed for the Thanksgiving week! We had ten people (7 adults, a 2 year-old, a 7-year-old and a 9-year-old), and the layout provided us all with just about everything we needed...the kids could swim and roam about and play games in the enormous playroom, with supervision from their parents, and without having to worry about them in the street or getting into various forms of trouble. We literally had everything we needed provided and spent a lot of time cooking and relaxing with the heated pool and spa area. The kids were kept busy with the games and huge entertainment center, and the adults could relax. The location was also ideal for shopping just around the corner, and for getting out into the Joshua Tree Park and Living Desert. Compound manager, Mike, took good care of our every request as well. In short, not one complaint, and to a person, we loved it and would come back in a heartbeat.
