Simply the best… “cool” pool!

As family vacation season is upon us, if you want to ensure that you are in a resort that has a pool that keeps the kids (and kids at heart) happy, then read on.

When asking fellow employees what resort have you stayed at that has a “cool” pool the same two names consistently came up. Again, Iberostar Paraiso Lindo and Maya is a top choice!  In addition to the amazing main pool network there is both Mayan themed wave pool and a fun lazy river.  Between, the main pool, wave pool and lazy river you will need to remind yourself there is a beach.

Another top choice for “cool pool” is the pool at Grand Sirenis in Riviera Maya. Grand Sirenis main pool has been described as very peaceful and beautiful, and they also have a lazy river pool for some relaxation.  It has a slow current and snakes thru the entire property. You could hop on an inner tube with margarita in hand and drift all day!

Tell us, what Apple Vacation have you been on that had your most favorite pool?

Riu Playacar – The hotel offers 386 standard rooms and 2 Restaurants. It does have sharing privileges with the Riu Yucatan and the Riu Tequila.  Perfect for someone looking for a “smaller” resort.

Riu Palace Mexico – This resort hosted us and we received great service and amazing food.  The hotel has 434 junior suites, 6 restaurants, 2 pools, a swim-up bar and golf nearby.  I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service!  Beautiful beach and it is close to Playa del Carmen!
