For the 487-room Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa, the Santa Catalina Mountains are not so much backyard as backdrop. The view from its terraced lobby looks north across a free-form swimming pool at a line of rugged desert peaks in the near distance. The rooms have been spread out through some two dozen stucco buildings painted a rosy hue. It’s thoroughly civilized though lucky guests occasionally come across bobcats playfully batting old tennis balls around the court as if they were house cats.

What sets the Westin apart, at least for tennis players, are its four clay courts, part of a battery of 10 altogether (the others are a cushioned hard surface caled TruBounce), under the direction of Eric Styrmoe, a former All-American at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah with international tennis experience. These wrap around an Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa, a multi-room fitness center, a children’s playroom and a deli café, all of this just steps from the swimming pools and a waterslide and handsomely landscaped with desert foliage.

Here's what others have had to say about Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa.

  • 4½-Ball Rating "Terrific staff, both knowledgeable and friendly. Great place for everyone from first timers to advanced players, and plenty of people to hit with or play doubles with. Indoor courts mean you can play when it's raining out, and you can always practice w a high tech ball machine."—G.H., Int., October 2010
