The Best Hotel Pools in Florida
The Sunshine State may be famous for its theme parks, but its resorts and their pools are also designed to impress and amaze visitors. How about the country's biggest pool, or one with an underwater sound system? Once you see these massive Florida swimming pools, your typical rectangular hotel pool may seem utterly inadequate.
Biltmore Hotel

Originally built in the 1920s and covering 23,000 square feet, the pool at this luxury resort is said to be the largest in the continental United States. A quick dip in the 700,000-gallon pool will refresh all but the most aquaphobic. Marble-paneled with two waterfalls, the pool is like a tranquil ocean. When you're done swimming, sunbathe in a private cabana or pick up a gourmet snack at the poolside bar and restaurant.

Orlando World Center Marriott Resort

As if being near the two water parks of Walt Disney World wasn't enough, this hotel offers six lagoon-style swimming pools that it dubs the "first wonder of our world." A million gallons of water flow through the different pools, down an adrenaline-inducing 106-foot water slide and past numerous roaring waterfalls. No wonder the Marriott says it's the best hotel pool in Orlando. When you're not floating in the water, test your skill in a game of water volleyball, relax in a whirlpool hot tub or sunbathe on one of hundreds of beach chairs.
