If you enjoy tennis or golf, you’ll want to bring your clubs out to one of the three championship golf courses [El Conquistador Tucson is the largest golf resort in Southern Arizona] or pick up a racquet at one of 31 lighted tennis courts, which are immaculately maintained.
The resort also offers glittering pools – a general pool, an adults-only pool, and a children’s pool – PLUS a 143-foot waterslide.
A fitness center is available.
The Children’s Pool is a hit with little ones, featuring a beach entry and various spray elements. Older kids will zip down the waterside with squeals of laughter. Note that the children’s pool closes at 5:00pm on the off-season so get to the pools early to maximize the fun.
