Even Florida natives like myself need a break from the heat, which means I’ve stayed in plenty of hotels across the state that have an on-site pool. It’s an essential amenity in the Sunshine State, offering a place for the entire family to unwind after a day of exploring.

But the hotel pools in Orlando aren’t just a cool place to take a dip; it’s also where you can spend an entire day soaking up the sunshine. They aren’t just for kids either, as they also feature lazy rivers, waterfalls, swim-up bars, and elaborate water slides that adults will equally enjoy. From family-friendly to ultra-luxurious, here are some of the most over-the-top hotel pools in Orlando.
