La Quinta is everything I want out of a desert resort. Aesthetically, the property is stunning with low profile Spanish-style buildings framing garden-and- pool-filled courtyards and dramatic seismically created mountains looming overhead. The opportunities for recreation are plentiful, the restaurants are top notch, and the pet and kid friendly atmosphere makes me feel at home. Tip: Bring your kid's bikes or scooters because the property is large and there are plenty of other kids riding around. Why not join in on the fun? ROOMS My family stayed in a casita with adjoining rooms; one with a king bed and another with two queens. The rooms were spacious and the décor reflected the desert surroundings without being over the top. Our room features a fireplace (most rooms do), free internet, a large bathroom with great spa products, and a fridge stocked with honor bar items (dislike). Our building was single story, as are most on the property, and it was nice to sit on the patio in front of our room while watching the kids play in the courtyard. While the resort does have 796 guest rooms, the courtyard configuration makes it feel many times smaller. Most courtyards on the property have a pool, ours included. As a matter of fact there are 41 swimming pools and 53 spas on the property! That must be some sort of record. We found the courtyard pool to be ideal when we were short on time or just wanted some quiet because most of the time, the pool was empty. POOL, GOLF, AND OTHER RECREATION The resort does have a main pool and recreation area which features a large pool and spa, cabanaas, shallow wading pool, splash fountain, playground, and food service. There is also a nearby game room with foosball, pinball, arcade games, ping pong, and pool. Yes, your kids will want to spend all day here and never want to leave. Actually, you will want to spend all day here and never want leave as well! If you do leave the pool area it may be to play tennis (tennis in BIG at la Quinta), golf (golf is just as BIG at La Quinta. World famous PGA West is onsite), or enjoy some time at the full service spa. My son participate in the new Little Links program which allows children ages 6-14 to play a shortened nine hole version of the La Quinta Mountain Course with a parent in the afternoon (after 2PM during the winter and after 3PM with the Daylight Savings time change). My son had the time of his life playing on a beautifully manicured “big kid” course with his dad and us parents appreciated that this program was free for resort guests. It is recommended that families rent a golf cart, especially since those long walks while lugging a golf bag can be hard on little legs and backs, but the $17.50 charge for a couple hours a parent/child bonding on the course is a tremendous bargain. KIDS CLUB La Quinta works with the YMCA to provide kids club fun on weekends, holidays, and busy weeks during the summer. My kids loved their time in this YMCA camp where they made crafts, played on the playground, ate lunch, and got to pick up a sweet treat from the property’s Sweet Shop, Lollipop. There are evening programs so that parents can enjoy a nice dinner or daytime programs which are ideal for parents who want to golf, play tennis, enjoy the spa or just enjoy some time alone. DINING AND SHOPPING There are eight different places to dine between the golf courses and resort options and my family was lucky enough to give two of these spots a try. The first one is TWENTY6 which is located in the plaza and has a fun throwback vibe and serves great American comfort food with a twist including pork chop tv dinners, mini grilled cheese with tomato soup shooters, and pink cauliflower. The kids menu is a little pricey at $8 but options are varied and include pizza, pasta, grilled chicken, hot dogs, and chicken fingers. In the winter there is a gourmet hot chocolate menu which as you can imagine, was quite popular with the entire family. Also in the plaza, is Adobo Grill which serves Oaxacan Mexican food in a fun atmosphere. The food was good but the margaritas were better! Mommy and Daddy will appreciate the “Master Tequilero” who has 100 varieties of tequila to sample (but not all at once!). The kids menu is $8.50 and is limited to a cheese quesadilla, chicken fingers, a bean and cheese burrito, and chicken taco. Families with two or more kids that want something that isn't so basic may be better off ordering from the adult menu and splitting a plate.A smaller version of the menu and full drink selection can be enjoyed out on the hill which features seating, Mariachi music and beautiful views. This is where my daughter and I chose to hang out while the boys were cleaning up after golf. I could have spent all even there. Oh yes, there are some fun places to shop while staying at La Quinta. The same plaza where TWENTY6 and Adobe Grill reside is also home to a PGA West shop (perfect for buying Christmas gifts for the golf lovers on your list, a kids shop featuring adorable Quicksilver and Roxy clothes as well as toys, and cute little gift items, the candy shop (Lollipops), a resort gift shop, and the ever important coffee shop. PETS My biggest regret was not bringing ours dogs with us to La Quinta. This is a very dog friendly property and dog are everywhere. It is so fun to see all the different breeds and nice to feel like you can bring your entire family to the resort. La Quinta Resort charges a flat pet fee of $100 per room for the entire length of your stay making it cheaper than boarding your dogs. An oversized pet bed, pet placemat, stainless steel pet bowls, travel tote bag full of organic treats and other goodies, and stainless steel pet tag are included. Dog grooming is available on demand and there is even an in-room canine massage available! BOTTOMLINE La Quinta is a fantastic resort which I highly recommend to families visiting the Southern California desert. It is truly a destination resort and an ideal place for Socal residents to visit on a weekend escape. While it is very hot in the summer, the pools and reduced rates make it a great getaway. If your family loves golf or tennis, this resort needs to be on your must-visit list. My family will definitely be back! Disclosure: My family received a complimentary stay at La Quinta Resort in order to complete this review as well as meals at Twenty6 and Adobe Grill. The food and hospitality were wonderful but all reviews reflect my honest opinions.
