Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
Whether a golfer or swimmer, lounger or shopper, every member of the family can be a star on this summer’s vacation thanks to the newest deal from a great Tucson resort.
At JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa, families of up to four can book deluxe accommodations with rates starting at $189 per night using the Family Swing & Fling Package.

Avid or casual golfers will enjoy any of three nine-hole courses that meander through the Catalina Mountains surrounding this Tucson golf resort. Designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer, the courses are named after a number of desert wildlife that could appear during any round, including the par 36 Rattler, par 35 Roadrunner and par 36 Coyote.

The deal includes a free meal for the kids with every paying adult. And, when adults order a meal at Primo or Signature Grill, they will receive a complimentary dessert that could include a coconut lime flan, warm sweet tamales, espresso float or cannoli Siciliana. The poolside restaurant Plunge, surrounded by a pool, two whirlpools and a children’s splash area, could be a fun adventure for the whole family with its menu of grilled burgers, sandwiches and salads along with tropical and ice-cold beverages.
