Nothing shouts summer fun louder than these resorts’ over-the-top swimming pools — and cool lagoons — with lazy rivers, crazy slides and even a new splash park. We found bodies of water that are perfect for everyone!
Hawks Cay Resort
The centerpiece at Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key is the saltwater lagoon fed from the Atlantic Ocean. Totally unique, the pond is the perfect spot to snorkel with tropical fish, paddle about in a kayak or participating in daily paddle-board races.
Marriott World Center
Get ready for a hotel pool area that’s a fun-filled island paradise! The Marriott World Center in Orlando not only has six pools (two specifically for kids, including a wading pool for really little ones) but there are cascading rock waterfalls for all to enjoy and an awesome 106-foot curvy waterslide too.
Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek
An awesome winding water slide isn’t all you’ll find at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. The lushly landscaped lazy river can’t be beat. Bring your own inner tube or rent one at the Splash Shop.
TradeWinds Island Grand Resort
St. Pete Beach
Wow! The new 20,000-square-foot Splash Island Water Park at the TradeWinds Island Grand Resort on St. Pete Beach is a fun, colorful floating play- ground in the Gulf of Mexico. Revolution, the giant inflatable seesaw, is a must.
Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate
Make a splash with a ride down the 125-foot corkscrew water slide into the zero-entry pool at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate. Then cruise the lazy river in an inner tube, keeping an eye out for booming water cannons and gushing waterfalls.
