If you’re like us, the pool is basically your second home during the summer. But instead of hitting the same scene every day, why not switch things up a bit?
Whether you want to drink the night away like a pirate or swim with dolphins, check out these amazing pools you’ll want to add to your summer bucket list ASAP.
Grand Hyatt Baha Mar
Become one with the sea at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar. You’ll feel like a real-life mermaid as you swim through an aquarium filled with nurse sharks, stingrays, tropical fish, and other marine life. Not only that, the underwater marine cavern was inspired by Dean’s Blue Hole, one of the world’s deepest salt water sinkholes.
Dominican Republic – Iberostar Grand Bavarro- Pirate ShipIberostar Grand Bávaro
We love a good theme, and the pool at the five-star Iberostar Grand Bávaro takes it to the next level. Located on the Bávaro de Punta Cana Beach in the Dominican Republic, the pirate-themed pool even has a full-blown pirate ship docked at the pool to mimic a schooner that’s ready for cast off. Even better, the ship becomes a bar at night where you can choose from 15 Caribbean rums and 12-year-old scotch…bottoms up!
Florida – Westin Cape Coral – Pool SunsetThe Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village
Take a dip in a lagoon-style pool at The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village in Florida. Come night time, you can enjoy a complimentary shot at The Nauti Mermaid Dockside Bar & Grill for an adults-only kind of night.
Anguilla – Zemi Beach HouseZemi Beach House
You can live out all of your mermaid fantasies and snap a shot of yourself swimming underwater. The Zemi Beach House features an infinity pool with a window facing the Shoal Bay East so you can take all the underwater pics you please, sans the low-quality waterproof camera.
Hawaii – Hilton Waikoloa VillageThe Hilton Waikoloa Village
What better way to feel like a mermaid than by swimming with dolphins and sea turtles? Spend the day snorkeling, kayaking, or paddle boarding at The Hilton Waikoloa Village. Their protected oasis, unique ocean-fed lagoon, and dolphin sanctuary makes this spot a fan favorite for a day full of water adventures.

Unwind and enjoy a relaxing day lounging by the pool. The newly renovated Hilton Aruba offers quiet pool decks and waterproof Kindles so you can catch up on your favorite read (finally!).
Dominican Republic – AlSol Tiara Cap CanaAlsol Tiara Cap Cana
If you can’t get enough of the pool, then the Alsol Tiara Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic is a dream come true. You never have to leave the pool if you book a first-floor room because the pool starts as soon as you step out the door. The suite overlooks the main pool area, so you’ll be by the pool 24/7.
