The enormous (19,000 square feet) pool is open seasonally. Three of the four sections open at 9 a.m., and one opens at noon. The pool is free to all hotel guests, and a large pool deck has complimentary lounge chairs which are available to everyone on a first come first served basis. There is also a special paid access only area, which is open from May through September only, not the full pool season. Guests can obtain access by renting a cabana, daybed, or VIP or regular chair in the area. The VIP area is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and the pool itself from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Reservations for cabanas and VIP seating are first come first served and need to be made in advance. Complete food and beverage service is offered in the VIP area for an additional cost.
North cabanas also offer access to a more private pool area and hot tub. All cabana guests are required to check in by 10 a.m. on the day of the reservation. Otherwise space may be resold unless you specifically request late check-in, in which case you have until noon.
Alternatively, if you prefer, a VIP cushioned lounge chair with 5 bottles of water can be purchased in lieu of a cabana, and you still gain access to the VIP pool section.
All visitors to the pool can order from the kid-friendly poolside menu. Hot dogs are $6 while a cheeseburger or sandwich is $10. They all come with a choice of potato chips, fries, coleslaw, or potato salad. Soda, iced tea, and even water each cost $4 (bring your own water), cookies cost $2, and ice cream bars cost $4.
