We just got back from a wonderful vacation at Tucson’s Starr Pass Resort. Everything about our stay there was relaxing and serene. The accommodations were clean and the views beautiful! The staff was very pleasant and even would address my husband by name. We thought that was impressive since they have so many visitors on any given weekend.
We had a three night stay there. We tried to have dinner once off property. My husband wanted Italian food so we tried a little place in town that had good reviews. We were so disappointed that we decided to stick with the fare within our resort. We found the food to be a bit pricey but, adequate. Eating lunch poolside was fun! The onion rings were about the best I have ever had!
Our youngest, twelve year old daughter Zoe, brought her best friend along. They had a great time traipsing around the resort trying out all of the different pools. Our favorite was the lazy river. We spent most of our time in the lazy river! I have a intense sunburn to show for it! Sunscreen is no match for the brutal AZ sunrays. Wow. By day three we were all wearing shirts and shorts in the pool.
My oldest daughter Brittany came to join us with her four kids. I was so glad that they got to experience this lovely place with us! They all seemed to have a terrific time! I had the most fun just watching all of these kids experience the environment around them. One thing I really appreciated was the all of the various water stations! This resort promoted hydration in the most spectacular way! They had big clear water dispensers infused with all kinds of fruits, all over the property. Beautiful, inviting and so responsible! It was easy to keep everyone hydrated. The kids tried many of the different fruit waters.
For us the drive to Tucson is only a couple of hours. Precisely why we chose this destination. The perfect get- away for us. We have decided to try to make this venue an annual event. This gives all of our family members time to save up and get ready for this! What a wonderful experience we all had together!
