Westin Villas in Rancho Mirage are Gorgeous!

Last week I had my first tour of the Westin Mission Hills Villas at Rancho Mirage and they are very impressive. Situated on beautiful grounds adjoining the main hotel and 36 holes by designers Pete Dye and Gary Player, the villa amenities leave nothing wanting. Every Premium Villa interconnects to a Deluxe Villa, so friends and family can be together or separate, this was an impressive feauture. The Premium Villas have 2 fireplaces, a King bed and sofa sleeper in the living area, inside laundry, a full kitchen and a patio with BBQ. The Deluxe Villas have a slightly smaller kitchen and living area, Queen bed and sofa sleeper, no BBQ or fireplaces, otherwise very similar, but the Deluxe Villa is definitely a cut above for spaciousness and amenities.

Villa guests have full run of all the Westin Mission Hills Resort facilities and amenities the hotel guests enjoy including reataurants, pools, jacuzzis, gymnasium, spa and there's a continuous shuttle running from the villas to the hotel and the golf courses. Kids love the pools, water slides, bike trails, volleyball, there's lots to do for everyone. These are beautiful villas, great location, and the price won't scare the hell out of you.

Fish out of Water?

Most folks don't think of Scottsdale, AZ as a city for seafood. If you are looking for this type of fare; I'd like to suggest the Ocean Club. The pricey menu offers an impressive menu with fresh fish caught daily from the coast of Oregon to the coast of New Zealand. Of course there is also a nice selection for steaks as well.

The atmosphere is a throw back to the old supper club days and the bar is a great place for appetizers and drinks.
Portions are very generous, but you'll have to dig extra deep in your pockets for this meal! The Mastro Groups seafood restaurant in North Scottsdale is a popular place and reservations are suggested.
The Ocean Club is located at 15045 N. Kierland Blvd, Scottsdale, AZ, for reservations please call 480.443.8555.

Bon Appetit !!
