identifying points with their unique IDs within polygons

I have a polygon shapefile which shows districts. There are about 129 of them. Then, I have a point shapefile, which shows new real estate sites. There are several of them that fall within each polygon. I want to be able to identify the points which fall within each polygon by their unqiue IDs. I tried with the spatial join tool in ARCtool box, but it returns me only one intersecting point and not all the points which fall within the polygon. If this requires some programming in python, I am willing to try that too. I am using ArcGIS 10. Any kind of help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much,
