RIU Palace Aruba
The RIU resorts are known for giving their guests the royal treatment and unbeatable all-inclusive rates. The RIU Palace in Aruba is no exception, in a tranquil Caribbean setting, surrounded by the larger-than-life decor. Indoors you will find delectable food and liquor dispensers in every room. Outdoors you will find a kiddie pool, two huge colonial-inspired pools, and the stunning oceanfront of Palm Beach.

Just like the palatial towers flanking both sides of the pool, the water features here are nothing to scoff at. Guests will love the canopy cabanas and plentiful beach chairs, all centered around the humongous pool. With an asymmetrical design, in-water lounge chairs, a lively atmosphere, and even a swim-up bar, the RIU Palace has everything needed for pool lovers.

Dreams Punta Cana
The Dreams Punta Cana resort, in the Dominican Republic, welcomes families and couples to the vacation of their dreams. Situated on a pristine stretch of Uvero Alto beach, guests will enjoy the natural beauty of the land, and the Caribbean decor throughout, with bright pastels and a winding property. When guests have had enough of the beach, with an ocean trampoline and coral reef, they can hit the large pool complex.

As one of the largest free-form pools in the country, guests can explore the entire property, without ever leaving the water. The pool stretches from the lobby to the beach, complete with plenty of lounge chairs, lazy river elements, and a swim-up bar. In fact, the pool is so large you can see it from almost any point of the resort, and it rarely feels crowded even during the peak months for occupancy.

Breathless Riviera Cancun

Treat yourself at this adults-only resort along the vibrant oceanside in Cancun, located between the Caribbean Sea and the Lagoon of Bahia Petempich. The Breathless property is designed with a unique layout, with separate sections that welcome peace and quiet, or a lively party atmosphere.

Beyond the signature AM resort’s quality service and deluxe room accommodations, guests will find lavish pools to explore. On the Xhale side, for upgraded guests, you’ll find an alluring pool with ocean views and circular lounge cushions built into the pool. Over at the main pool, guests will find a rotating DJ schedule, weekly foam parties, and one end of the picture-ready poolside completely made of glass, offering see-thru views.

Turtle Bay Resort

Turtle Bay Resort
At the Turtle Bay Beach Resort, in majestic Oahu, you’ll find a remote resort resting on an outcropping of Kawela Bay. The resort features truly panoramic views throughout, and the numerous restaurants and impeccable service evoke the friendly Hawaiian culture. Another great feature of the resort is that many of their destination wedding packages include a dinner reception, a rare inclusion for resorts in Hawaii.

The main pool at Turtle Bay is a lagoon-inspired paradise, with ocean views, tropical flowers and swaying palm trees. Other unique features include a waterfall, waterslide for guests of any age, and two hot tubs on either end. Guests staying in the Villa Suites also have access to their own private pool, with barbecue pits. Both resort pools operate using saline, made of natural salt water, rather than chemically-based chlorine.

CHIC Punta Cana

The CHIC Punta Cana is the ultimate experience for a beachfront adults-only resort. As part of the Royalton Resorts family, guests can expect contemporary decor, delicious restaurants, and a beautiful golden beachfront to relax on. For those with a large budget to play with, consider a stay at the CHIC Mansion, a house within the resort complex where a group of guests can stay and enjoy their own butler service and private pool.

But for everyone else, there’s the signature pool complex to enjoy. With elegant white surfaces, bridges, private cabanas, and more, it’s a great place to catch the sunset. Hit a lively foam party, or simply enjoy the surroundings. For a truly Instagram-able moment, the “mermaid” pool features a glass picture frame cut out on one end of the pool, where your picture can be taken while you strike a pose underwater. At CHIC guests will enjoy a resort that takes sun-worshipping to a luxurious level.

Moon Palace Jamaica

The expansive Moon Palace resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica has undergone a full renovation, now filled with marble interiors and extravagant decor to welcome all guests. There’s no limit on the number of activities available, including snorkeling and waterfall tours. Destination weddings will love the gazebo surrounded by water, or the multiple restaurants to dine at.

Guests will get a glimpse of the four pools to explore from the second they enter the lobby, through a huge cinema-screen sized window, plus there is a kids’ pool too. Three of the pools feature swim-up bars, and there’s also a waterslide to hit, and a FlowRider wave simulator for the adventurous to boogie board on. Around each pool, you’ll find snack bars, sunbeds, and the friendly service Jamaica is known for.

Sandos Finisterra

Sandos Finisterra
The iconic Sandos Finisterraresort has seen the famous weddings of many celebrities, including Keith Richards, but luckily every guest that comes through the doors receives the red-carpet treatment. It’s easy to see why tourists flock to the location, surrounded by the Pacific waters of Mexico’s west coast, and unbelievable panoramic views of the desert mountains and the marina. There’s plenty to do on site, with gourmet dining and endless drinks, but the resort is also located just a short walk down the hill to downtown Cabo’s exciting nightlife and shopping.

The resort’s pools deserve to be just as iconic as the resort. Down along the beachfront portion of the resort you’ll find a humongous free-form pool, with thatched cabanas and desert fauna framing the ocean waters of the Baja Peninsula. Even though this pool should satisfy the most ardent pool fans, there’s another pool exclusively for those guests staying in the VIP suites. Here you will find a plunge pool with poolside service situated on a high cliffside atop the resort property, with jaw-dropping views of the marina.
