This four-star resort is set in a beautiful area of the desert surrounding Tucson, and has just what your family needs for a vacation that feels totally luxurious. Although it is a casino resort, kids are welcome to stay; options that accommodate families include the double queen guest room and the king suite with sofa bed.
Kids love swimming in the beautiful outdoor pool surrounded by lounge chairs and palm trees, and parents enjoy the golf packages and spa treatments. When you get hungry, you don’t even have to leave the property, thanks to the array of restaurants you’ll find onsite — from the PY Steakhouse to the contemporary Chinese restaurant to Albuelita’s Taqueria, and plenty more. Whatever you’re craving, you’ll probably be able to find it at the resort.

We've visited Casino Del Sol seven times in eight years. This year we noticed that the slot machines were very stingy. Usually you can play for several hours and at least breakeven, but this year wasn't fun. Sad as I doubt we'll be back.
The hotel is wonderful, especially if you're on the 10th floor (sky lounge) and overlook the pool. Rooms are clean and room service is quick. Virginia was our housekeeper; she was incredible!
Front desk/reception is very friendly and helpful -- always. If your room isn't ready when you arrive, they can store your bags, call you when your room is ready, and deliver your bags to your room. And, if you request any papers, they will hold them for you at the front desk so you don't miss out on the limited number of papers they receive daily.
Two problems with the room. Battery on in-room safe went out, so had to call down to get someone to open for us. Mom stored her meds in there and it was a bit stressful waiting for security to arrive and open. Second problem was that the coffee machine stopped working one morning and it took quite a while for them to get us a replacement.
I love the pool as it's always empty in November ... very relaxing and they'll bring you bottled water, too!
Great place to travel to with an elderly parent ... but disappointing slot machines.
Stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. We were booked into a room on the 10th floor (Sky Floor) and felt special! Lots of restaurant choices, beautiful pool area, nice golf course on site and great location. Highly recimmend
