With plenty of pool parties to choose from in the desert, the scene at the 4-star Omni Rancho Las Palmas is the most family-friendly, says Fodor's, and for obvious reasons too -- Splashtopia. The two-acre water park sprawls across the Rancho Mirage resort, past sandy beaches, under fountains, through sprinklers, and down a lazy river, and culminates with a ride down two 100-foot waterslides.

Even with all that excitement, it's somehow still calm and peaceful (the quietest rooms are far from the pool area). Those without kids come for the 20,000-square-foot spa, or for more active pursuits that include tennis and golf on the 27-hole championship course.

Spanish colonial buildings are woven across the property, and guest rooms are connected by courtyards and desert-flora-lined pathways. They are all spacious and "subtly sophisticated" (Gayot) with neutral walls punctuated by dark wood moldings, and fluffy white beds next to French-doored patios.

The hotel houses a cafe and two restaurants, as well as a poolside bar and grill. The standout is bluEmber, melding locally farmed ingredients, house-grown herbs and spectacular sunset views over the mountains.

Enjoyed Most: Excellent customer service.
Other Comments: The entire staff made us feel like royalty. At the adult pool we mentioned we'd enjoy a raft and suddenly a raft was delivered to us. We spilled a drink and new one was delivered free of charge before we knew what happened. We hated to leave. It was like we were in paradise! The front desk staff, the pool staff, house-cleaning...they all worked their tales off to make us happy. We can't wait to return.
