Default 40+ year old pool deck (kool deck)

I have a REALLY old kool deck that is beyond repair. Massive cracks
and chipping up everywhere. What I would like to do is to have it
grind down (while the slope is maintained) and have tile put on. I
hear travertine is nice for hot weather, I live in AZ.

Just wondering if anyone else has some good ideas.

Tile might get slippery when wet. you want somethign rougher like flagstone
around a pool for traction.

What caused the massive cracks? If it is settling do you think it has
stopped? I'd want to know that before I put expensive tile on it.

My pool deck settled and I removed the loose concrete, used Bondo Household
putty to fill the cracks, and then painted with deck paint. If it settles
more I can just fill in and paint. Cost was probably $70.00. I took a
piece of the deck to HD and matched the color. It's holding up well so far.

I could see where the previous owner did some sort of recoating but it
didn't stop the settling. I'll bet he was ****ed.
