LLandLoL received two complementary nights to be able to share our thoughts and experience. As always, my opinions are 100% my own.
I am a huge fan of staycations. That[s when you vacation in or around your home. You check in to a nearby hotel and pretend you are a million miles away while still being close enough to save on travel costs and rush home for emergencies. Don’t get me wrong, I love exploring new places and travelling to old favorites, but sometimes, when time is short or travelers are small, it really is best to staycation.
On a recent three day weekend we decided to travel to Chandler, Arizona (we live in Phoenix, Chandler is an approx. 30 min drive) and do a relaxing, fun staycation with the whole family at Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort and Spa. Because we were travelling close by, we were able to invite our teenager’s best friend. The age gap between our teen and next oldest is 7 years, plus, we’re the only girls. Sometimes a teen just needs her bestie, right? We got two adjoining rooms during a special holiday rate (check out all the upcoming deals, including a special 4th of July holiday. The activities for the weekend look like such fun!).
While I did debate checking out Aji Spa (again, there were special deals!) I opted to stick with the family and we enjoyed a whole weekend of relaxing by the pool. The pool was beautiful allowed for all the kids (ages 13 down to 3) to have fun swimming, playing, lounging and water sliding! Yes, the pool has a water slide for guests and the line was never long! The pool side activities kept the kids entertained and our teenager even won herself a free smoothie during one of the activities.
The location is fantastic, too, if you do decide to leave the property (though, really, you don’t need to for anything). There is a shuttle that runs to the nearby (and I mean like down the road) casino every 10 minutes or so and there is a big outlet mall only minutes away, too!
So go enjoy some nights ‘away’ and check out Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort and Spa!
