Best Resort Pools for Families

Explore the best resort pools for families on the Big Island, in no particular order. These pools allow for the whole family to let loose and relax! From slides, waterfalls, and volleyball nets, to more lavish private cabanas and rope bridges! These pools check almost all the boxes, and help to push your getaway to another level.

Fairmont Orchid Resortpool is enormous, and has many different areas to play and have fun. There are private cabanas, with attendants that can bring you food and drinks, which is particularly nice when hunger strikes.

Fun fact: The pool is heated, and is open 24/7, so if you want to go for a late night dip, go for it! This is one of the few resort pools that does not close. After your nighttime swim, bundle up next to one of the fire pits located towards the back of the property overlooking the ocean. The fire pits are surrounded by spacious adirondack chairs that are perfect to get comfy in and cozy next to the roaring fire. 

The jacuzzis are 24/7 as well, and can be enjoyed after a late night dinner.

Want to enjoy a beautiful white sand beach close to the pool? There is a beach on property making it convenient for you and your family to enjoy paradise and not have to go anywhere.

Be sure to stop by Brown’s Deli (by the pool) on the way to the beach for some takeout food: breakfast, fresh salads, meaty lunch sandwiches or savory pizzas. If you are looking for a more secluded place to enjoy your meal, there are pleasant nooks located throughout the property that you can relax in.

Waikoloa Village Hilton resort-style pool is probably the largest in Kohala, and has private cabanas of all sizes! Lay by the pool in your own private retreat, and pamper yourself as a pool attendant brings you drinks and food until your heart’s content. There is a large slide that keeps the kids entertained for hours, and even a volleyball net across the pool to get some exercise in!

The pool has a rope bridge that traverses across the top of it, allowing for the kids to jump up and down, and have a better vantage point when playing hide n’ seek!

There are many areas to lay out if you want full sun, or you want to be in the shade. The pool is closest to Makai, but don’t worry there are other pools on the property.

If you are staying in Palace Tower or Ocean Tower, there are two pool areas! One is an adult only pool, located inside of Ocean tower near the water. There is also a multi-level pool at Ocean Tower with a slide and lots of space to splash around with the family. There is a bar located at this pool as well, so you can grab a drink and relax while looking out at the beautiful Kohala coastline. The views from this pool are spectacular!

 Note: The private cabanas are half off after lunchtime. 

Kings’ Land allows for the ultimate swimming adventure, jump in the resort style pool located at the clubhouse.

This pool is MASSIVE! It has something for everyone, which is one of the reasons why we love staying here.

The adult only area of the pool is VERY nice. It features a huge secluded waterfall, long bench with jets to massage your lower back, private restrooms, and gigantic hot tub.

The fitness center is located next to the resort pool for your convenience. Squeeze in a quick workout, then cool off in the plunge pools located in the adult pool area. The pool bar and King’s Bistro have delicious grab and go options for food, and a full bar. Sip on a Mai Tai while floating around listening to your favorite audiobook.

The kids pool has multiple waterfalls, slides, and more! There is even a sandy area for small kids and infants to splash around and take in the beautiful Kohala sun. There are a few jacuzzis on property, the adult only jacuzzi is huge at their main club house.

They also have another pool on Kings’ Land property located in between a few of their condos. This pool is smaller, but still just as enjoyable!

The main pool is first come, first serve. The pool opens at 8 AM and closes at 10 PM. The pool has multiple restrooms and facilities located at the main club house for your convenience. 

Westin Hapuna– All we can say is wow! This pool is not as kid friendly as there are no slides or waterfalls. However, it is located on Hapuna Beach!

This resort features two pools, one family friendly, and one adult only. Both pools have stunning views of Hapuna Beach and offer a more relaxing atmosphere.

This pool does not feature as many amenities (slides, pool accessories) but families have the opportunity to enjoy Hapuna Beach in the members seating area! 

The family friendly pool is located next to Naupaka Grill, easily accessible for food and drinks. It truly is something to float around while gazing at one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
