Although the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes Swimming Pool does not have any special Water Fun features, the neighboring JW Marriott Orlando, that shares amenities with the Ritz-Carlson does. The Pool at the Ritz-Carlton is very elegant and has the styling of a celebrity location with Cabanas surrounding the pool. There is a also large whirlpool at this location that is available for all guests to enjoy. Off to the side, the smaller kids can enjoy a small shallow fountain splash area with a playground that will be fun for toddler age children. If you have brought the kids on vacation, they will only be impressed when you take the path over to the JW Marriott resort where they will find a fun Water Feature that is not available at many of the resort locations, a Lazy River. The Swimming Pool at the JW Marriott Orlando is a very large, imposing design all by itself and really stands out. Even though there is not a Water Slide at this location you will find a flowing, winding Lazy River that stretches the entire length behind the main pool connecting the Zero-Entry Pool to the Large Pool. Jump in with a tube to this large, wide river and float along viewing the gorgeous floral arrangements and overhanging trees. The structure holding the Lazy river are handsome rock creations and you will see striking waterfalls along the way. The main pool is very large and will accommodate all of the guests who enter. You will also find that there is a large whirlpool with a waterfall flowing into it just outside of the main pool. There are Cabanas for rent at both pool locations if you are in the mood to really be pampered throughout the day. The sheer style and perfection that has gone into these pools will make you feel as if you have entered an Oasis of paradise and you will want to return with your family time and time again.

The Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes Resort Swimming Pool Information

Having access to all of the amenities and water fun location at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando and the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes Resort makes this a fantastic 2 for 1 deal. The larger pool at the Marriott is great for the entire family with splashing fun for the kids and a Lazy River to entice everyone who enters but the Ritz has the nice Quiet pool for those times when you would like a little peace and quiet.
