Are you dreaming of laying out at the pool with a good book in hand? Feeling the warmth of the sun on your shoulders while ordering menu items at a swim-up cantina? Cooling off with a margarita or specialty cocktail? Zipping down a waterslide or gliding around a lazy river?
Many people have asked us if any of the Tucson resorts or hotels offer day passes or summer use passes for locals.
We investigated and found that almost all Tucson resorts reserve their pools for overnight guests.
Arizona Inn, JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa, Loews Ventana Canyon, The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain, and Westin La Paloma all confirmed that they DO NOT offer day passes for pool use in order to provide the best experience for their guests.
BUT DON'T GIVE UP ON YOUR POOL DREAMS YET! The good news is that Tucson hotel/resort rates are at their lowest in the summer! Consider booking an overnight room with your spouse, your kids, or a group of friends before Labor Day.
Here is a brief overview of summer rates, specials, offers, and packages at Tucson resorts + hotels for the summer of 2019.
