We usually stay at the Marriot Las Palmas in Rancho Mirage for the pool. Our boys, 8 and 12, enjoy the 100 ft. waterslide. The large pool here is full of families.
Thanks for asking my question, cm1000! We too are in Poway and figure if we're going to be cooking in this heat, we may as well be somewhere fun with a cool pool! I'll be watching for further suggestions.
We ALWAYS stay at Marriotts Renassaince Esmeralda. They have a zero enterance pool so the kids can walk into rather than being put in. It also has a great beach for sand fun. Hours of fun. A plus is the pool side lunches for only $5.
No question here. The Marriott Rancho Las Palmas is the place for you.
They have a great waterslide and family pool area with some nice rooms right next to the pool, yet somehow seem secluded.
You'll be pleased!
