When I think of Arizona, I think of warm weather, wildflowers, breath taking sunsets and a desert filled with cacti and mountains. And I also think of pools, laying out and catching some rays and time outdoors with Charlie. To me, Arizona is the perfect place to spend time outside.
Charlie and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Hilton Resort, El Conquistador located in Tucson Arizona. The hotel was a true desert oasis. The resort spans over 80 acres of desert and had amenities that will provide for an unforgettable vacation.
While at the resort, Charlie and I spent the majority of our time at the swimming pools. Charlie’s favorite pool was the kid pool (of course), it was private and quiet and had a zero edge entrance that Charlie loved to run in and out of. I like that the resort kept the kids pool away from the large pool, so that I did not feel like Charlie was being too loud when others were trying to relax.
My favorite pool was the main oasis pool, located in the middle of the resort, surrounded by grass and palms trees and accompanied by a poolside bar and grill. And let me tell you… the grill food is amazing! I would definitely recommend the burger, it was perfect. Tommy, the poolside server had the best customer service skills and was so friendly.
And if you are anything like me, then you like hot tubs. El Conquistador has a super secluded, private, and quiet hot tub located right next to an ice pool.
I loved that the entire time at the resort, I never had to leave. The resort had an on site gym (with treadmills that streamed Netflix…gasp!…), on site restaurants and even a full buffet style breakfast (that served Lox Bagels… my favorite!). They even served sunscreen, water and towels by the pool (for all you absent minded parents like myself).
Overall, the resort was beautiful, fun, and one for the books! Thank you El Conquistador for having us!
