Nice lazy river pool, very comfy beds, great views

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 16, 2010

We decided to go stay for the weekend of August 14-15, 2010 at this wonderful resort and spa nestled by the mountains of Tucson, and with a great view of the Tuscon area at night.

The hotel lobby is large, spacious and spectacular, giving you an immediate view of the desert mountains and the pool. The cafe restaurant extends to the outside and is great place to sit and relax at - and if your are into Starbucks, they also have a Starbucks in the hotel itself. The restaurants are high-end with good service, but of course a bit pricey.

The room we had was a double standard room which was of okay size, but the bathroom was huge with a bathtub separate from the shower, and with granite countertops. And the beds were very comfy with a high-thread count for the beddings - I slept soundly....Unfortunately though, our view was the front of the hotel and not the pool area. So, if you wish better views, ask for the rooms facing the pools. We did not "change room" though because we were just happy to have an early check-in at 1230 PM.

The hotel does have a spa and you can have access to the spa for a fee...or just use the gym free which is open for 24 hours. Access to the spa includes use of the no-kids lap pool and the sauna/steam. The gym is very nice with great views of the desert as you exercise on the treadmills...

The pools here are dynamic multistory pools, but with just two small hot jacuzzis at the side. There is also a separate pool area with the LAZY RIVER POOL and mountain water slide - lots of rubber boat floats available and we had no problem getting one. However, the water slide was closed during our visit.

It was hot during the day, so we just walked in the paths along the golf course at night. It does have a spectacular golf course with this mountainous desert setting.

During the weekends, Dora and SpongeBob were there for the kids at the lobby - and they have whole day activities for the young ones. You can pay anywhere from $35 to %65 for kid activities, depending on half or whole days....

There is valet parking available for $20 a day, but there is also covered self-parking which is a bit far away from the guestroom - walk about 5-10 minutes to get from your room to parking. There is a business center and wireless internet access but not free - you have to pay about $12.95 for the internet use for 24 hour use. Bummer on not having free internet....they also have a special rate for "business-connect" such that you also get free domestic calls(long distance domestic)

Overall, a great stay and we truly enjoyed the outdoors during this stay in Tucson...

Unique Quality: LAZY river pool, golf course, beautiful lobby with desert mountain views
