Has anyone stay in both Desert Srings & Shadow Ridge? I need some perspectives on the new Shadow Ridge Enclave. We are planning a trip in 09 and looking at the major differences between the two for wedding celebration. Please feel free to respond with your input. Many thanks!!
Frank, the Desert Springs hotel is something to be seen. You can board small boats at a dock in the atrium, and then be ferried around the hotel lakes. This can be used for transport to restaurants etc.
The villas at Desert Springs 1 and 2 are superb. 1 is the older but larger accomodation, it is also closer to the hotel. The nearest town is the wonderful Palm Springs and these 3 resorts are close by .
A little further away is the newest resorts of Shadow Ridge. I saw this during construction 2 years ago, it is a great resort and very peaceful,but I had the impression that it is a little remote.
