It is no secret that Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North is a perfect lovers’ paradise and a great spot to staycay with your girlfriends. The spa, the dining, the incredible pools. But the Scottsdale resort also proves to be a fun spot for the entire family, too. Here are five reasons why you should bring the kiddos on your next Four Seasons foray.
- Traveling with a wee one? Four Seasons goes out of its ways to babyproof your room. Before your arrival, sharp corners are covered on your room’s nightstand, desk and TV stand to ensure no eyes will be poked or foreheads bonked during your stay.
- There are two family-friendly pools (one traditional pool and one very shallow splash pool). And you don’t need to worry about getting a little loud or splashing here and there as there is an adults-only pool for guests who crave peace and quiet. Come Saturday nights in the summertime, the whole family can watch a movie poolside while snacking on popcorn. Plus, during the day, you can look forward to the incredible pool staff doling out slices of watermelon or smoothie samples to keep you cool and handing out dive rings and pool noodles. Run out of sunscreen? No worries. There is a bottle of SPF 30 for guests to use–gratis–at the pool.
- The food is tops for the entire family. Proof Canteen (pictured) dishes up a kids’ menu that goes beyond mac and cheese, offering kids such eats as salmon and steak sided with corn and mashed potatoes. And the kid-friendly dishes and utensils means parents aren’t worried about dropped plates or sharp knives. Come dessert time, the sweet treats at Proof are endless–whether you want a towering sundae, a cereal-topped milkshake or a simple scoop of vanilla with sprinkles (stop by during the day this summer for half-price ice cream). If the kiddos are getting a little antsy between courses, the bar shuffleboard located near the bar should let them get out the wiggles.
- So maybe Mom and Dad do want a little alone time. Kids ages five to 12 can partake in Kids for All Seasons, the on-site children’s camp. The camp hosts activities (like board games and crafts) as well as complimentary access to a pool table, a ping pong table and a Lego table. Some camps even mean a carnival, a movie night, bowling or a scavenger hunt.
- Even if your kids are too young to appreciate the beauty of the desert surroundings, they are sure to appreciate the spiky cacti, the twisty, turny fauna and the occasional toad that might cross your path. Kids will love keeping their eyes peeled to their surroundings to see what itty-bitty critter or crazy cactus they might see next.
