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.
