Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort Review

The highlight of this family-oriented Hilton is the 9-acre recreation area Hole-in-the-Wall River Ranch; it has swimming pools with waterfalls, a 130-foot waterslide, and a 1,000-foot "river" that winds past a miniature golf course, tennis courts, and artificial buttes. Accommodations in the stucco buildings vary from standard two-room suites to a grand three-bedroom house; all have balconies. It is also adjacent to the very busy AZ 51, though it manages to filter out most freeway noise. Kids can enjoy the "Coyote Camp" youth programs while adults take in area golf and the Tocasierra Spa.

Traveling families escape the Phoenix heat at the Hilton's "Hole-in-the-Wall River Ranch," a massive water park that includes waterfalls, a 130-foot waterslide, and a 1,000-foot "river" that winds around the property. Elsewhere on the 9-acre recreation area are minigolf courts and tennis, and hiking and biking trips are right next door at the Phoenix Mountain Preserve.
