The Marriot Desert Springs Resort is an extraordinary complex of huge hotel that includes a golf course, tennis courts (15 hard, 3 clay, and 2 stadium grass courts, and 9 restaurants, but what's really extraordinary are the lakes and swimming pools. The lakes actually extend inside the main hotel building, and motor boats taken hotel patron to landing where their room building or condo is located. Walkway bridges span the lake in places to reach the island-like area where the swimming pools are located. When we were there, a guitarist and congo player were entertaining the crowd at the poolside, while the bar served drinks. I wouldn't bother to stay here myself, but one can't miss check out this opulent setting. We have friends who stayed here and were so entertained that they never took the time to check out El Paseo Drive.

Directions: On Country Club Drive of I-10.
