Walk through the lobby of the Saguaro hotel and you'll see El Jefe, a dark tequila bar perfect for hiding from triple-digit weather. Sidle up to the bar or a dark wood table and choose from an eclectic offering of tacos like orange-braised carnitas or cactus, plus a large selection of margaritas you won't find on usual Mexican menus (think celery and watermelon).

Good food and good drinks.  A bit pricey, but it is super convenient if you want to grab a bite to eat or catch a slight buzz before heading to the pool.  Dim lights and relaxed ambiance.  Service can sometimes be slow.  Overall, it’s a nice spot that saves you time since you don’t have to leave the hotel property.  That means more pool/party time!
