All guest rooms include wet bars, refrigerators and microwave ovens. Each room has its own terrace with a fantastic view. Children 13 and older are charged at the adult rate Valet service; all guests are provided complimentary signature skin care products made from pink grapefruit.
When there a couple months ago with friends! Heard an awesome performer by the name of Nancy Franklin who played in their patio that evening. Just found out she'll be re- appearing on the 20th of Jan. and is known to rock that house down! A must!!, if you love live Entertainment at it's best!!!! Thanks Borrego for such a talent!! kudos!
Slightly overpriced with average but, at times, acceptable food. The Arches' decor is retro -done-wrong but has potential and the place does have a nice view of the golf course and a pond. Lunch in the bar sometimes turns into a heavy drinking golfer's pit stop.
They are making changes by offering cheap tacos, margaritas and pasta nights that appear to be helping business but the real solution is a real chef.
we've stayed here 5-6 times and have always had a great time-it's a great romantic getaway place. The pool has great lounge chairs & cabanas that are private and clean to relax in. The surrounding area is beautiful and scenic. The restauraunt isn't much to cheer about but the mexican food in town is worth mentioning.
The remote location of the resort is exactly whay we were looking for. I really enjoyed the scenery around the town. The resort was just as nice. Very firendly staff from the front desk to the golf shop. The golf course is in great shape. Very green and lush! The carts were a little older looking, but made it around with no problem. My room was very nice. I had no problems whatsoever with my trip here. Oh yeah, the food in that snack bar was awesome!! I'll defintely be back!!
The staff was very accommodating. Absolutely loved the view of the golf course and mountains while dining in the restaurant. The snack shop on the golf course has one of the best breakfast burritos I have ever had, not to mention some great burgers.
The golf course was very well manicured, the newest nine seemed a little young - but the original 18 is a great layout with lush fairways and fast greens.
Only negative was no wireless internet access - but the manager said they will have it when we come back.
We were refered to the Borrego Springs Resort by our neighbors that said it was a great place to stay, and it really was. We had the best nights sleep that we have ever had away from home. I don't know what kind of bedds or bedding that they had, but it was FANTASTIC. We will tell our other neighbors and will be back soon ourselves.
