The desert's most family-friendly resort, this large venue holds Splashtopia, a huge water play-zone. Kids and their parents can spend an entire day cruising the lazy river, crashing down two waterslides, and building sand castles on a beach. Rooms are in two-story Spanish-style buildings that surround courtyards and gardens; one section is primarily for families. French doors lead to balconies or patios where you can take in the golf course or mountain views or watch
ducks cruising a pond in the fairway. The suites recently received makeovers—they're now splurge-worthy choices for those who want to spread out.
