Hilton Anatole JadeWaters is a hidden gem located in Dallas, Texas. Surrounded by busy city life, the lush landscaping of the water attraction gives the illusion you are transported somewhere else. I have partnered with them for over three years now. There is a reason I keep bringing our family back – it’s simply fun and it’s become one of our favorite staycation spots year after year. Kicking off our 2019 Summer Bucket List, our first stop was at this popular Hilton destination. This is a sponsored post and all opinions are my own as usual.
Why your next trip should be to JadeWaters
The Resort Pool offers something for everyone
The JadeWaters Resort Pool is exclusive to hotel guests. It features:
- 4,000 sq ft Leisure Cove Pool with Swim-Up Bar
- 7,000 sq ft Kids Play & Splash Area 630-foot Lazy River
- Two 180-foot Winding Water Slides
Want a space to get away from kids?
Listen, I get it – sometimes you want to get away from screaming and loud kids while you are on vacation. Below I was fully accepting of the kids craze happening before my eyes. It was our first time going during Memorial Day and it was jam-packed with families.
Escape the madness and enjoy the 23-seat Swim-up Bar in the Adults only pool. Last year, my girlfriends and I enjoyed this area during our Girls Trip to JadeWaters. Note: the people watching is always fun to check out here.
Rent a Cabana or Daybed at JadeWaters
If you want a space that is more private for your group, they offer Cabana and Daybed rentals. Act fast because they get reserved fairly quickly. The Cabanas seat 8 people while the daybeds seat 2-4 people.
In addition to the resort pool, the amount of family entertainment happening is plentiful. My kids enjoyed the Anatole Park train rides, glimmer tattoos and face painting. There are plenty of kids’ craft and slime classes and the guest favorite duck races. Families can beat the Texas heat for a bit by attending a Hilton Anatole Marionette Show. Most activities do require purchased tickets that you can get at the Kids Concierge booth or you can save money by purchasing a Fun Pass.
There is a JadeWaters Activities Schedule to help families participate in as many activities as possible. The hotel staff do a great job of leading games and handing out tokens that kids can later redeem for prizes near the Kids Concierge booth.
The fun doesn’t stop once the pool closes and the sun goes down. Every Friday and Saturday night they show movies under the stars. Any hotel guests can enjoy this activity free of charge. Showtime starts at 8:55 pm.
Lawn games are found in the lawn and are a family favorite. This is also a good spot to watch the Fireworks.
Poolside food and drinks
JadeWaters Grill & Bar offers an assortment of family-friendly food and adult beverages. If you snag a seat, you will have wait staff. Admittedly, they were hard to find due to the busy holiday. Hint: Find someone in a yellow shirt and they will take your order. In visits past, the wait staff was easy to find. They do have a walk up service area if you have trouble locating them. My favorite menu items include the Chicken Quesadillas and the Classic Margarita.
JadeWaters Fireworks Series
New this year, the hotel is hosting a series of Fireworks shows at the resort. Remaining dates for the Hilton Anatole Fireworks series are 6/14, 7/5, 7/19, 8/9 and 9/1. Fireworks start at 8:55 pm. Get there early to get a good spot and towels from the pool are accessible to use. The Kids Concierge stand is also open for refreshments.
Photo Opportunities Galore
A vacation wouldn’t be complete without adorable photos to post on social media or share with others. Throughout the resort pool area and indoors are plenty of wonderful photo opportunities to check out. My favorite is the huge Adirondack chair. It’s fun to see how much my kids have grown each year.
Hilton Anatole V Spa
Tell your spouse to watch the kids while you get a poolside massage by V Spa. Most of the time they have a booth set up for chair massages. If you are looking for more privacy and a place to really relax book a spa appointment for some much-needed pampering.
