Have you stayed at Indio? Here's your chance to tell other WorldMark owners what it's really like. How big is the pool? How hot is the hot tub? What do you wish you had known before you left home?

We just returned from 7 nights in a 2 bedroom. We were in building 15, which was totally renovated. The good things: carpet, shower surrounds, all the sinks and faucets, darkening blinds, and pillows. Bad things: dark granite counters hard to keep clean, no soap dishes near any sink so soap has to be put on the counter, and the kitchen counter height is too high on the working side the bar stool side is fine.

Loved the lazy river, which still has walking from 8-9 am every day, even though not really "adults only". Hot tubs were great and the market has a lot more items available.

Sales staff was pushy, but I just unplugged the phone in the unit so no calls. We will definitely go back.

Indio is a fantastic resort. The rudeness you experienced really has nothing to do with the resort. Rude, ill-behaved, loud, obnoxious people go to all the resorts. When the group gets that large it is very hard to get it under control and they do ruin vacations. It would have been nice if the resort had moved you to another bldg. if possible. Also, many owners who have large amounts of points book family get togethers on their account which is one of the privileges we still have. The bylaws change on a whim of the board, so this is one that we need to keep.
We went to Dolphins Cove and were frustrated by the loud behavior and slamming of doors from our upstairs neighbors. Until everyone learns that freedom is the ability to do most anything as long as it doesn't impede the freedom of the next guy, we will still have this kind of behavior going on.

So, sadly it is time to head home. we have been here a week and a half. thoroughly enjoyed this place. we have been to many resorts over the years, and I have to say that this resort has made a really good impression on me. besides all the work they are doing on this resort, which didn't bother us at all, this is definitely a resort that we will want to come back to. the staff are very friendly, very helpful and go out of their way to help anybody out. We went to the lazy river ride almost every day, and to see the lifeguards help with the handling of the tubes, helping people get in and out of their tubes, and keeping the place clean, they definitely get a lot of kudos from this family. The office staff were very friendly and helpful, and when we checked in, the Wyndham staff were trying to get us to go to a presentation, but we explained that we are fine right now, and just trying to have a good time with our grandson. They called once, but not pressuring us. That was a welcome change also. Overall, the resort was clean, well maintained, and a very nice place to spend time at, with the exception of one idiot who was below us the first couple nights. The grandson had a blast, we had a blast, and although this is out in the desert, we found all sorts of things to do, even with the grandson. The weather was beautiful, and I really got my skin darkened up.

So, we just got down to this resort. So looking forward to this. We brought our 3 year old grandson down with us, thought he would enjoy it. We get in late, due to a delay with the airline. We arrive at the resort around 6:00. Go out and eat, get back and the grandson lays down for the night around 9:30. He wakes up about 9:00 he next morning. So, quiet time is 10:00 PM to 8:00 am. No problem. But the frigging idiot below us is banging on the floor around 9:00 at night, and then has the balls to call me around 9:30 this morning and complain that my grandson is making too much noise. I hang up on him because I have put up with this from other people for years. I understand that there is a quiet time, but have a common courtesy to let others with kids respect that also. My grandson was quiet during those times. Some people don't get it. I understand people have kids, and I am not one to complain about other people's children. I know they make noise and sometimes they are wound up. It would be really nice if other idiots without kids understood and learned from this. But that being said, my wife and I are down here to have fun and enjoy this place. And I have to say that this resort so far is a really nice place. I will definitely be wanting to come back here.

Indio is a great resort but they are in need of maintenance, if you want sunshine demand that you do not want bldg 11/12/13/1/2/ no sun. If there is a problem with anything in the room it should not take more than a hour to fix anything, go shopping

We just spent a week in Indio (1-24 to 1-31 2016)it was the worst week we have every spent at any resort. We had a 2 bedroom unit on the second floor in bldg. 10. The unit was just fine, no problems. Our problem was we were surrounded by several people who did not abide by the rules. We are not the least bit anti jewish, and I believe that was what they were. I do have to say I have worked with jewish people and never found them to be rude. But this group was rude and did exactly as they pleased. First off they let their kids throw bread all over the yard in front of the units, so the ducks were all over, also allowed their small children - anywhere from 4 to 10 yrs old to get into the hot tub with no supervision and play as tho they were in the pool. They also did not observe the 10pm quiet time, I got up at 11:30pm to call the office to ask that they come quiet them down, the little kids were outside below our unit, screaming, laughing throwing balls in the air etc. this not only happened once, it was every night. I called the office and complained; the guys in the unit next to us also called and complained as did others that I talked with. Also the people in the office I spoke with the next day acknowledged they had had several complaints. When talking to some of the employees, I learned that this group comes every year about this time and there is usually around 100 of them, also understand there is only 1 or 2 that are owners, guess the owners are rich or the others are renting as the general public can now go online and rent a unit. Also had guest with us, that were of course encouraged to go to the sales meeting, and was assured it was to be informative and not a high pressure sales pitch, and would only last 90 minutes. Wrong, they felt very pressured, meeting was at 12:30, and they were tied up until 3pm. So all in all, it was not an enjoyable week. I must add I have been a Worldmark owner for over 20 years and this is the first time I've not enjoyed a resort, and I have been to several of our resorts and have stayed at this resort at least 4 or 5 times in the last few years, and this is the first time, I wish I would have stayed somewhere else. Did learn that this group of people come in November or February, so will either not plan to stay then.

My wife and I have been owners for 9 years. This was our first stay at Indio. We arranged for a family reunion, of sorts. We used a 3 bedroom Presidential and a 2 bedroom. The units were clean and nice. There were a couple small items that were not in order. In one unit the dishwasher motor made a grinding sound and in the other there were no washcloths or dish soap. Went to housekeeping and retreaved the items needed. No big deal. Because the dishwasher sorked, we waited until we left to report the noise.

We were shocked to hear that Worldmark is about to remodel Indio already. The units deffinately don't need a remodel. If anything, maybe just replace some of the appliances, etc. There are other resorts that need much more attention than Indio.
