On closer inspection, however, another story began to emerge. There is not nearly enough soundproofing in the walls for any kind of privacy between the A unit and the miniscule (350 square feet) studio lockout. Our neighbors weren’t noisy, but you could hear every word of their conversations from our living room. The furniture showed some wear but was in reasonably good condition and was functional, but it was clearly done "on the cheap" – that is, it looked fine, but when you sat down, it felt like it had been bought at a very low-end discount store. Decorations consisted of window treatments, five pictures, and a few plastic plants. The carpeting needed cleaning, and there was even an advisory flyer in the unit where management stated, "There is a major problem with the carpet in the units and we are in the process of working… to have it replaced."
There are no washers and dryers in the units, but there is a spotlessly clean laundry room near the pool with three washers and three dryers available at no charge that serve the entire resort. Dirty towels are replaced DAILY at no charge, and local calls are free. The resort also provides a computer near the lobby for use by vacationers. Our unit had an uncovered patio right outside our rear door, just a short distance from the beautifully manicured pool area.
Cimarron has two wonderful golf courses – a long and a short course – which are both in fantastic shape, but as for activities, the golf course and the pool are about it. No fitness room, no tennis, no kid’s play area, and no resort activities. The on-site restaurant (Leapin’ Lizards) offers a good selection of reasonably priced entrées, but during our stay was only open for breakfast and lunch. Planned activities: none. Cimarron Golf Resort was okay and is better than many of the other (and much older) Palm Springs resorts, but at 66,000 points for a week in a one-bedroom unit, we didn’t feel it was worth it.

A garage and outside parking spot for each suite, security gates operated by your room card, and a quiet location at the end of a street in Cathedral City, with easy access to Palm Springs and other attractions.
We stayed in one of the wheelchair suites and were pleasantly suprised with the excellent, carefully planned amenities that it provided, and would highly recommend this type of suite for anyone with mobility issues. A personal patio (other suites have balconies), well designed pool and spa area, central BBQs, responsive and friendly staff combined with clean, well tended grounds and the quiet atmosphere made this an excellent place to relax.
Apparently the golf is great -- don't play myself so I can't comment directly there -- but it certainly seemed like a popular course. Definitely a resort we will return to!

Computer access facilities.Resort Experience:The cimarron resort was a very "pristine-like" resort alongside the golf club. I believe more amenities will be added but for now the pool was the major amenity!
There was so much to like about the resort and little not to like. What I didn''t like was that there was no tennis on-site (and we had to find by ourselves a public court); they expected you to pay for courts at a nearby resort. Also there were no exercise facilities. Rather than pay for a poor excuse of an exercise room at a nearby resort, I paid a reasonable weekly fee for a Gold''s gym membership.
Now for the good. First the pool (and pool area) was never crowded and I was able to swim to my heart''s content. And the hot tub was great. There were always nice conversations going - very friendly.
A second nice plus is that there was a computer, so I was able to access the internet (and my email) every day. This came in handy as I checked out restaurant reviews and kept in touch with teammates who were arriving later in the week for the tennis championship.
A third perk was a laudry room (no charge for machines) was always accessible, so instead of my husband needing to bring about 18 shirts for tennis, I was able to pack lighter!
Finally the condo rooms were large, airy, and nicely decorated. Since I am used to my own space, I have trouble with small condos. I had no problem at this resort. The very large bathroom had two doors so it was accessible via the bedroom and via the hallway (so if you have extra people you don''t walk through sleeping area). The bathroom vanity area had a large counter so I could lay out all the cosmetics, etc. In addition to a large living room, dining room, and kitchen, the unit had a balcony with a table and several chairs that was sunny and enjoyable for eating outside.
I had plenty of towels, plenty of kitchen stuff (I eat breakfasts and lunches in; never use for dinners though), TV reception was good, there was a book exchange, the on-site restaurant was great, etc.
One final item about this timeshare: for each unit, you had a two car garage! In twenty years of exchanges, I have never traded at a place with a separate garage per unit.
Pictures to follow.
