The Best Hotels in Orlando With Water Parks

Jennifer Greenhill-Taylor | January 05, 2018

You’d be hard pressed to find a hotel or resort in Orlando that didn’t have a pool, most heated, but these hotels go far beyond the simple pool. With water slides ranging from mild to wild, waterfalls, lazy rivers, splash zones, and more, they offer families the convenience of fun right outside the room door.


Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort

Why it made the list

Lush landscaping surrounds the 800,000-gallon pool in this legendary half-acre water complex. The pool is divided by a rocky promontory with grottos and caves to explore. Guests can swim through the caves, splash under the dozen waterfalls, climb a rock wall or a tower to reach the 124-foot waterslide, or cross the pool on a rope bridge. The adult side has spacious sunning areas and a lounge.

Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center

Why it made the list

Florida in miniature is found under the dome of this vast resort. The well-named pool complex, Cypress Springs Family Fun Water Park, contains four slides, a heated pool, and a treehouse playground in surroundings that evoke the Everglades. Kids can even feed baby alligators in the atrium’s generous water features. Another heated pool offers adults a relaxing escape.

Caribe Royale All-Suite Hotel & Convention Center

Why it made the list

Not far outside Disney’s gates, this large, tropical-themed resort has a water complex to match. A 75-foot water slide, and kiddie splash zone join a quiet pool in the back of the property where the two-bedroom villas are located.

CocoKey Water Resort

Why it made the list

Right in the middle of I-Drive, this resort has four heated pools, 14 water slides, a 54,000 sq. ft. canopy-covered/outdoor water park with slides and water rides with names like Boomerango and the Cyclone Slide. Some of the slippery slopes are toddler friendly; others are "wild enough" to have height restrictions.

Reunion Resort a Wyndham Grand Resort

Why it made the list

This vast golf-centric resort is so far from the theme parks or Orlando that it has to offer lots of on-premises entertainment. Registered guests can tube down the lazy river, ride the water slides, play lawn games, or simply lie in the sun and enjoy poolside food and drinks.

Holiday Inn Resort Orlando--Waterpark (formerly Nickelodeon Suites Resort)

Why it made the list

Formerly the Nickelodeon Resort, this family-friendly lodging close to Disney was folded under the Holiday Inn wing in 2016. The huge water park remains, and while Nick fans will miss the chance to be slimed, kids can climb and splash and swim and slide to their heart’s content.
