14 Florida Hotels With Lazy Rivers

Splashing around at the beach or the pool is fun, but so is floating along a lazy river! Check out these 14 Florida hotels that offer lazy rivers for both kids and adults alike.

1. Holiday Inn Resort Pensacola Beach Gulf Front, Pensacola

-

This family-friendly hotel on the Florida Panhandle is located right on the beach, but if you’d prefer to say poolside, you’ve got that option, too -- plus a lazy river! Downtown Pensacola is 20 minutes away by car.

2. Turnberry Isle Miami, Autograph Collection, Aventura

-

Located well north of Miami Beach, in the inland community of Aventura, the Turnberry Isle Miami is a boutique property with two 18-hotel golf courses, two pools (one with a lazy river and a waterslide), three restaurants, a spa, and a tennis center.

3. Naples Bay Resort, Naples

-

Quoting our full review, “The 85-room upscale Naples Bay Resort and Marina is something like a small Italianate resort city.” Within this European-style property are five pools, including a lazy river; three restaurants; a spa; a fitness center; and a 97-slip marina.

4. Hammock Beach Resort, Palm Coast

-

While the beach is a big draw to this Palm Coast resort, the amenities are equally as spectacular. The water park has five outdoor pools, a lazy river, and an indoor pool complex, and for the landlubbers there are two golf courses.

5. Flamingo Waterpark Resort, Kissimmee

-

This budget-friendly hotel about a 30-minute drive from the Orlando theme parks, but you can stay right on property and enjoy the on-site water park if you so choose -- just note that there are fees in order to do so. The water park is decently extensive, though, with water slides, a kiddie playground, and a lazy river.

6. Pelican Grand Beach Resort, Fort Lauderdale

-

This luxury beachfront Fort Lauderdale resort offers gusts a zero-entry pool and a lazy river, a spa, a restaurant, and an old-fashioned ice cream shop. The hotel is ideal for seclusion, as there’s not much within walking distance -- The Strip is a five-minute drive away.

7. Hyatt Coconut Plantation, Naples

-

This timeshare resort is a great pick for families who are looking to do things on their own. The one- and two-bedroom units come with fully equipped kitchens (the only on-site food and drink options are a lunch-only restaurant, a Starbucks, and a poolside bar, though there is also a small market to stock your pantry). There are four pools and a lazy river here, as well as a private island offshore with a beach.

8. Holiday Inn Resort Fort Walton Beach, Fort Walton Beach

-

For a value resort, this Holiday Inn impresses. There’s a lazy river/outdoor pool combo, an indoor pool, a restaurant, and a tiki bar for entertainment. The updated property has a surfer-chic design scheme, and the rooms are bright and airy.

9. Waterscape Condominiums, Fort Walton Beach

-

Just down the way from the Holiday Inn is the Waterscape Condominiums, which offers individually owned condos with kitchenettes -- the largest of which can sleep 10. In addition to the four swimming pools, there’s also a lazy river. The property is also within walking distance of Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park.

10. Reunion Resort, Orlando

-

If you want a hotel that has seemingly endless opportunities, check out the Reunion Resort in Orlando. It’s near all the theme parks, of course, but it also has 11 pools, a five-acre water park with a lazy river, six restaurants, three golf courses, a spa, and a tennis center.

11. Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, Orlando

-

This retro-chic hotel, part of the Universal resort, is a great spot for families. There are casual dining options like a food court and a poolside grill, a pool area with slides and a lazy river, a bowling alley, an arcade, and two bars for the adults. 

12. Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate, Orlando

-

There are plenty of activities to be found at the Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate, like three pools with a lazy river and waterslide, three golf courses (two with 18 holes, one with nine holes that’s illuminated at night), a kids’ club, four restaurants, and two cafes.

13. Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, Orlando

-

Located within the Walt Disney World Gates, this hotel is a much calmer spot than some of the more family-friendly resorts nearby. That being said, there is still a lagoon-style pool with a waterslide and lazy river. Guests can use the amenities at the adjacent Waldorf Astoria, too.

14. JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes, Orlando

-

One of the most luxurious hotels in Orlando (it’s a sister to the neighboring Ritz-Carlton and shares its amenities), the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes has a delightful lazy river and a top-notch Italian restaurant.
