Best Hilton Pool

What's the best pool you've seen at a Hilton Family hotel?

For me it's probably the Hilton Dallas Anatole. They had a huge indoor pool at the attached Verandah Spa and another outdoor pool too. Also, the pool at the Hilton Narita was nice and big, and the one at the Conrad Tokyo was smallish but had beautiful views out the floor-to-ceiling windoes on its high floor setting.

Although it's not the kind of place I like to stay in when I'm in Bali, the Conrad Bali's pools are lovely.

Bangkok?

I know people have had mixed experiences with the new Bangkok hotel, but I was impressed with the swimming pool. It's on a reasonably high floor overlooking the river and across to the city. Quite fun to watch the frenetic activity from the calm of the pool. It's an infinity pool, with sun loungers sitting in the shallow of the water, which adds to the fun or feeling of calm depending on how you look at it.

But... when I was there the hotel was quite quiet, it's a small pool area and it could get overcroweded quite easily.

ES in Dorado PR. 3 level pool with corner spa. Tropical landscaped setting facing the ocean. Bar/restaurant in the pool, although you must leave the water to access it. At least one side has a gradual edge, like walking into a lake.

Hilton Toronto had a very nice pool, with good sized jacuzzi, and sauna. Definately made the trip more enjoyable.

Hi,

I would go with;

(1) Hilton Waikoloa Village with its huge Kohala pool and water slide and grotto and the Kona pool wihch is on multiple levels


(2) Hilton Tapatio Cliffs ( Phoenix) Two large pools wsith an enclose water slide in the Falls Vater Village and 6 other pools spread about the resort os you often had a pool to yourself.

Regards
