Most hotels in Orlando offer year round heated pools but NOT every hotel will have a pool that is heated, because of this, some diligent research is in order. Actually, we have done the research but you will want to check with the front desk before reserving any hotel that you think “may” have pool heat or you have been told that they do. For one, it could be broken and two it may only be heated certain times of the year. Typically, you will not have a problem finding a heated pool Orlando hotel because the majority of them are outside and there are just too many year round visitors coming to Orlando for a hotel not to provide the heat during the colder months. Although the mild climate of Florida is what draws the visitors it still gets chilly during the winter months, especially at night. The low temps in January average around 48 degrees. February is around a 50 degree low. The lows gradually build to an average 55 degrees in March and around 60 degrees in April. The lows do not start to stay in the 70’s until around June. As you can imagine, visiting Orlando during the winter and swimming in a pool would be chilly if it were not for the Hotels in Orlando with Heated Pools. Aside from all of that, there are simply many visitors who enjoy swimming in an Orlando heated pool for therapeutic benefits it provides, regardless of weather. It may be because of the doctor’s orders due to relieving stress on the joints or the simple fact that repeated chilling can make respiratory infections more apparent in young children and the elderly. All in all there are many, many options. So, let’s get started.
Hotels with Heated Pools in Orlando FL: Where Are They?
Although, pool temperatures will always vary depending on weather, there are some known facts in regards to Orlando Hotels with Heated Pools. It is recommended that guests wanting to swim during their Orlando vacation within the months of October to April will want some type of pool heat. Some say the temperature of the water would not exceed 10-15 degrees over the air temperature outside. Typically, a pool would be considered to be heated as long as it’s over the 80 degree mark and most pool heaters can actually take up to 24 hours for you to be able to tell a difference. So, given the unpredictable passing storms moving in and out of the area, remember that pool heat will fluctuate. There is no way around it. That being said, check out the following well known hotels in Orlando that have heated pools.

Although hours are subject to change, the heated pool in the center of the resort is open until midnight. TIPS: Pool view rooms are breath taking but tend to get noisy.

There is a twisty 124 Ft water slide there that will take you to the heated pool down below. It’s called the “Water Slide Tower Pavilion” and is a fairly new addition to the water amenities there. Also enjoy two hot tubs and one of them is at the main pool. TIPS: You can see Magic Kingdom Fireworks from the 5th floor rooms with a pool view. The rooms overlooking the lake are nice as well. The 16th floor and above have the the best views and are quieter. Naturally, the closest rooms to the pool area would be the lowest floor. The hotel sells inflatable rafts and tubes to be used in the pools. Grand Cypress Water Resort is located at 1 Grand Cypress Blvd Orlando FL 32836.
The 2 heated pools at the Bonnet Creek Wyndham are nice. Can you believe there is also a heated lazy river? You don’t find that very often. They also have Jacuzzi rooms available.

The Putt-Putt Tower (Tower 3) is the one that has the lazy river. Towers 4, 5 and 6 also have the quickest access to pools. Towers 3 and 5 have the firework views. Tower 2 seems to be outdated.
