Best Hilton Pool

Which Hilton property worldwide has the best pool? Not that I am planning on travelling anywhere just for the pool but if I am going somewhere close it might be fun.

Also, has anyone ever staid at a hotel that has a olympic size lap pool?

The Hilton in Frankfurt/Germany offers a health- and fitness-center, that includes a former public indoor bath, big enough for swimming-competitions.

Waikoloa Village certainly has a nice pool, complete with a waterslide, waterfalls and hidden hot tubs.

Are there any other Hilton properties that have waterslides? My kids love those.

Our family seconds the vote for Waikoloa! The big pool there is just overwhelming!

Squaw Peak in Phoenix has a water slide and a lazy river in its water park. I still vote for the Waikaloa.

The ES at Kingston Plantation at Myrtle Beach has a "mini" water park with slides for the kids.

Hilton Malta Resort has 4 swimming pools, one by the beach, one regular size, one inside of half olympic dimension and the fourth one filled up with sea water!! It's like having a feel for the real thing without the jelly fish!!

The Hilton Hua Hin in Thailand is pretty sweet and not over the top $$$ wise.

The cancun hilton: several connecting pools and a swim up bar.

Also, Keywest Hilton; Just becuase the pool is in Key West. Over 100 bars in waliking distance (stumbling distance that is).

The same answer as above to a different question:

What is the best pool in Hawaii? Hilton Waikoloa Village got the third place vote in this article from the Sunday Seattle Times travel section.

Once at the Whittier Hilton (next to Whittier College) the visiting women's lacrosse team stayed at the hotel, and the whole team was at the pool the night after their game. That was the best pool in the world right then.

The LV Hilton...three young nubile Frech chicks were swimming topless late one night. This should be instituted as the official Hilton touch....much better than cookied and Oreos!

I like the deep rooftop pool of the Singapore Hilton.

My vote is for the Caribe Hilton in San Juan PR ... several pools and waterfalls on a couple levels, hammocks in the sand under the palm trees on the point next to a beach area.
