Best Holiday Ever! A review of La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort
Spent two weeks at La Quinta this summer. Had originally booked another resort in Palm Desert, however, only stayed 10 mins - long enough to check in and then out! La Quinta would have always been our original choice, however, the other place appeared a lot cheaper - although, when we got our bill at the end of the two weeks, I think it worked out cheaper!When we arrived at La Quinta, the whole atmpsphere was tranquil and transported us back in time when entering the reception area - large comfortable sofas, beautiful period furniture and very grand fires ( although not lit! ). The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. We booked a starlight casita ( if you can afford this one - go for it, as it has a very large private patio, just outside your bedroom door ), originally for 7 days, then 10 days and ultimately stayed 13 days!! The room was large and tastefully decorated - sympathetic to the desert surroundings, a large bathroom, fresh towels daily and the rooms were cleaned before 11am each day, so it was nice to get out early in the morning and return at lunchtime to a nice clean, cool room! Played tennis almost daily - which proved to be a very inexpensive experience, lazed around the large pool at the tennis club - often we were the only two people in it! I guess the advantage of going to La Quinta in August! The grounds were beautiful - reminiscent of a small Mexican town. All in all, the best holiday we've had and would certainly go back - probably next year and who knows, maybe for 3 weeks this time! It's certainly worth a visit - you won't be disappointed!
