If grand scale is what you’re looking for, this is the place. Everything about the Westin La Paloma is big—big portico, big lobby, big pool area—and from the resort’s sunset-pink mission-revival buildings, there are big views. While adults will appreciate the resort’s tennis courts, exercise facilities, and poolside lounge chairs, kids will love the 177-foot water slide. Guest rooms are in 27 low-rise buildings surrounded by desert landscaping. Couples should opt for the king rooms (ask for a mountain or golf-course view if you don’t mind spending a bit more). Southwestern cuisine is the specialty at the on-site restaurant. The resort’s spa is a Red Door Spa by Elizabeth Arden.
