Westin La Paloma Resort in Tucson

Tena and I found this awesome Resort in Tucson! Even better, Westin's La Paloma is on The Employee Network and we get a great employee discount. We were looking for a place not to far from Phoenix to celebrate our 17th Wedding Anniversary. It only took about an hour and forty minutes from Chandler to get there. I remember speaking to Dawn who handled our reservation. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about the property. After speaking to her I knew this is where we needed to spend this very important anniversary.


Checking in was a breeze. Trish at the front desk was great. Its obvious their employees are happy and seem eager to share that happiness.

We got a suite with an awesome view of the golf course and mountains. After unpacking, we went to the lobby to explore the possibilities for our evening. While standing around in the front lobby deciding which way to go, this nice lady Sandy came over and introduced herself as one of the managers and offered us suggestions of how to start our festivities. First she suggested that the Red Door Spa had a complimentary chair massage in the Azul Lounge so we both got in a celebratory chair  massage to start our night. We sat in front of this huge window and watched this unbelievable sunset on the mountains in front of us while sipping some lovely adult beverages.

Chris, the restaurant manager, came by our table when he found out it was our anniversary and introduced us to a nice bottle of bubbly and the menu. We had a romantic dinner at Azul there on the property while we watched the rest of the sunset.

The pools were awesome and they even have a really fun slide and a salt water lap pool too. Tena was excited to find that they have racket ball and I found their workout room to be complete with more than enough equipment to keep me busy.

The swim up bar and deli reminded me of when we were married in the Caribbean. We ordered room service for breakfast. We were really pleased when they said 20 minutes and they were actually there in 20 minutes. They had lots of activities like golf and tennis that we did not have time for but we're already talking about going again. While I could go on and on, I know you will enjoy this place and its friendly staff.  Hello to my other special friends Carrie, Mark, Frank and Diane who all just added more fun to this very special occasion!  Cheers!
