Az Grand Resort or Point Hilton Squaw Resort for Family Vaca

Hi - We are a family of 4 including 2 boys ages 8 and 5 looking for nice warm trip for first week of April to escale the cold CO snow! Does anyone have any advice between these 2 resorts? We don't need super fancy but would like some fun water features for the boys and a clean room with a few amenities like maybe a restaurant or two? Thank you SO much for any advice you can provide!!!

This question gets asked a lot; if you do a search for 'Arizona Grand' or 'Pointe Squaw Peak', you'll find lots of threads. Here's also a link to some of them:

Az Grand used to be owned by the Pointe Resorts, and so the regular hotel rooms are similar to the ones at the Pointe Squaw Peak. (AZG also has larger Villa style rooms.) The water park is much better at Arizona Grand, though. Call the resort to make sure of the water park hours, as they are limited in the shoulder and off seasons.

Thank you very much! I didn't think to do that - just did and Arizona Grand it is. :-)

FYI, AZG water park opens in mid-February. There are height limits. But they have 6 pools and hot tubs that are open year round.

Thank you! We are going first week of April so hopefully all will be open. Not sure our youngest will quite meet the 48" height requirement but he's not too into the wild slides so should be ok. Thanks so much!
