One of the nicest Pool Complex you will find in Orlando with a long, 800-foot lazy river, the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes Pool stands out from the crowd. The Swimming Pool is very impressive in its own right but when you add in all of the other water features, this resort pool is a unique experience. There is not a Water Slide at the JW Marriott in Orlando but it is a great family water fun area just the same. As you flow through the winding Lazy River from the Zero-Entry Pool location you will find a very large path to float in with lush floral arrangements and trees overhanging. The walls are made to look like rocks and you will see gorgeous waterfalls as well. As you enter the main pool area, you will quickly see that it is very large and there are many places to splash and play. In the same area, you will see that there is a large whirlpool that has a waterfall that flows into it. A small, shallow splash pool close by and is a great place to take the toddlers. Since you are staying at this resort, you also have access to the amenities of the Ritz-Carlton Pools next door. This opens up additional, more quiet pool locations. If there is too much action going on at the main pool, head over and get some sun and relax a bit. Down by the lake, you can take a kayak out and paddle around while taking in the scenery around you from a different vantage point. 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.
