Best Hotel Rooms with Pools in Mexico and the Caribbean

Many destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico are known for their luxury resorts, tropical weather, and gorgeous beaches with swaying palm trees. However, travelers can have more fun — and soak up more sun — if their patio or balcony offers direct access to a plunge pool or the resort’s larger pool.

What is the benefit of a swim up room? Instead of packing a bag of supplies and heading to your resort’s main pool, you can relax next to your own bedroom where you have all your belongings and a private bathroom. Depending on your room type, you may also have pool access from a swim-up bar where you can float around anytime you want a cocktail. Hotel rooms with pools also set the stage for excellent people watching, as things can get crazy when guests are left to kick back and relax around a pool bar all day.

While some of the most exclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean offer rooms with private pools, having a bathroom gives you similar water access much closer to all the action at your resort. . Whether you want to stay at the Hyatt Zilara Cancun or are considering a stay at a Sandals resort or Zoetry property, read on to learn about the best pool rooms in Mexico and the Caribbean.
