Overview

Ample amenities offered on-site, including a golf course, a spa and five pools
Property charges a daily resort fee
Sure, this resort in Tucson, Arizona's Sonoran Foothills has the usual golf course (27 holes designed by PGA pro Jack Nicklaus), spa (a Red Door Salon & Spa) and gourmet dining (four restaurants, to be exact). But guests say that one of the best things about The Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa is its family-friendly atmosphere. Younger visitors will find loads of toys at the Westin Family Kids Club, while certified staff members provide childcare and supervised kid-centric activities like outdoor games and arts and crafts. Guests also say that their children enjoyed this Westin outpost's pool area, which features a 177-foot waterslide. And with an exclusive adults-only pool, R&R-seekers can escape the noise. The only issue some travelers encountered at this property was in regards to the daily $29 resort fee, which is automatically attached to your bill whether or not you take advantage of the amenities covered by the charge. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
