DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Golf Resort
Nine tennis courts, 27 holes of golf, a full-service spa, and a giant azure pool. What more do you need? How about pickleball, racquetball, basketball, bocce ball, and horseshoes? They have that too. When hunger strikes, DoubleTree’s Polanco Kitchen serves a mix of SoCal-inspired flatbreads, seasonal salads, and specialties like Tajín-crusted salmon with cilantro pesto and green papaya slaw. Plus, brunch is available all day. DoubleTree regulars know the cherry on top is the fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie that greets you at check-in.

The Paloma Resort
Centered around a historic, mission-style adobe that now houses The Paloma’s Spanish-inspired tapas restaurant and speakeasy, the newly opened resort pairs a peppy palette with an effervescent pool scene. One- and two-bedroom bungalows dot the property, each with colorful murals of cactuses, agaves, and other desert plants, bringing vibrancy to the walls. The daily resort fee includes use of bicycles, the fitness center, and a putting green, plus first option to reserve the premium air-conditioned Citrus Suite cabana at the foot of the pool; it’s equipped with a full kitchen and optional butler service. In the mood to chill? Book a treatment at the spa.
