Which adults only resort has the best pools?

While we intend to enjoy the beach, we also spend alot of time at the pool. Can anyone give me a recommendation on an AI with great pools?

Thanks, —R

I think the best pool set up is at the Iberostar Maya/Lindo and Paraiso Beach. I stayed at the Paraiso Beach in Feb. It has 6 interconnecting pools including 3 swim up bars. The pools run through most of the resort. There is a great aerial shot of the resort on the main Iberostar website. Just pick "Mexico" then "Paraiso Beach" and then "photo gallery". The pool area of the Lindo/Maya is even bigger. They are HUGE resorts. It's not adults only though. The Iberostar Grande is adults only and has a great salt water pool but it's not the size of the other resort's pools. If you stay at the Grande you have full use of the other 4 resorts though. Read the reviews and check out the "candid travelers photos" of each resort located at the top of each resort page.

Excellence has a great pool area that runs through the resort. The IB Grande has several different pools---one being a salt water pool.

The pools at ERC were awesome! Le Blanc's infinity pool was really pretty.

Aventura Spa Palace has amazing pools! There are 2 large lagoon style pools, each with swim up bars. The North pool (spa side) is the quieter pool and the south pool is more active with pool volleyball, live music and entertainment. There also cross current (with a waterfall)pool for exercise and a beautiful indoor pool with a cold water plunge. There ate 7 hot tubs. There is full (top shelf drinks and food) pool service, which is fantastic. You always have a drink in your hand. Go to www.palaceresorts.com to check out Aventura Spa Palace and look at my photos here on TA.

But....the Adventurea Spa Palace does not have a natural beach. They have a man made lagoon with no real ocean access.

Also you can use any of the other Palace Resorts, such as Club Tulum which has a beautiful large white sandy beach, or the Maroma Beach from Playacar Palace, which is pictured in my user photo here on TA.
