Orlando offers excursions and entertainment for anyone and everyone. Whether you’re visiting central Florida with your children, stopping off on a business trip or are taking it in with a significant other, there’s a reason why it’s called “The Happiest Place on Earth.” In between days at the amusement parks, shopping and dining out, you may just want to kick your feet up and relax by a pool. Most hotels do feature a pool, but if you really want to take that relaxation to the next level and experience not only some of the best pools in the state but in the entire country, make sure to book a stay in one of these five destinations. Each offers something just a little different while also providing a family-friendly atmosphere.
Magic Villa Resort, Orlando
The Magic Villa Resort in Orlando is an excellent destination to call home for your time in Orlando. It also offers an extensive pool opportunity. The pool itself is shaped like a tall, refreshing glass of water. Palm trees cast some shade onto the pool chairs while others are covered by canvas awnings (if you want the shade instead of sun). It’s large enough to where you can either move closer to other families or allow you to carve out your own little section. There are also outdoor eating opportunities, should you want to grab a bite to eat while remain close to the pool.
Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace – Disney Springs Area
The Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace presents one of the finest pools in the entire state. You won’t find a hard edge built into the pool anywhere. It swoops around a central seating area and even has its own subtle current so you can tube around the lagoon-like design. Of course, if you’d rather not have your child taking large laps around the lagoon, there’s a central location and side pools where there isn’t an artificial current. With this pool, you’ll feel as if you’re out on a river somewhere, just taking up the sun and enjoying life.
Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek
Hilton has you covered when it comes to pools in Orlando. If you want the larger, lagoon-like environment, make sure to consider the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace. However, if you would rather include amusement park style slides and other elements, the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek is the pool for you. This destination provides you with everything you’d expect from a Hilton hotel while ensuring you have an incredible time out with your children by the family pool. It’s also large enough so if you’d rather have your own, personal family time, there’s more than enough space to let you do just that. So check out the wide selection of room options available through Suiteness.
Reunion Resort and Club
The Reunion Resort and Club is a child’s pool fantasy. It takes the magic of an outdoor jungle gym and combines it with a pool. So before you go off and book a day at one of the water parks in the area, you may find you can simply kick back and enjoy your time around these beautiful pools.
Of course, if you’d rather have a more traditional pool that option is available as well, so you have the best of both worlds. For family-friendly pool options though, it’s hard to beat what the Reunion Resort and Club offers.
Blue Heron Beach Resort
While soaking up the sun at the Blue Heron Beach Resort’s pool, you’ll have a beautiful view of the natural waterway just behind the pool. Plus, with the tiki bar right next to the pool, you can always go up and grab yourself cool and refreshing to drink. This provides with all sorts of ways to beat the Florida heat. Plus, there are several sections to the pool you’ll enjoy with your family, not to mention a hot tub, which is great for relaxing in.
