Sweet Summertime: A Guide to La Quinta Resort Pools

Posted on 11th June, 2018

La Quinta Resort & Club is an ideal place to escape to, with 41 pristine pools and several on-site amenities and programs designed to help guests get their “chill” on. Whether you’re looking for a fun afternoon splashing around with the kids or a peaceful swim under the stars in your own courtyard, the right pool — all of which are chilled to the perfect, cool temperature — is out there for you.

If you’re looking for family-friendly …

The Main Pool, located near the tennis courts, welcomes all ages to splash around and play, with various entertaining water activities, such as evening Dive-In Movies, and fun floats from the resort’s Lollipops store. The pool features private poolside cabanas, poolside service, and a hot spa. Grab a drink and a bite to eat at the Center Court Café, which serves salads, burgers, and other casual fare. The outdoor fireplace creates a cozy ambiance on crisp, cool nights.

If you’re looking for relaxation …

Head over to the 21-and-over Plunge Adult Pool, nestled among the original casitas. This adults-only space offers a quiet, serene escape. After a swim, sit back and relax with a margarita or join in a lawn game or activity.


If you’re looking for charm …

The Casita Pools are situated just steps from your room and can be found throughout the property. Enjoy the seclusion and picturesque backdrop of the whitewashed casitas and lush gardens.

If you’re looking for privacy …

Book one of the five exclusive, luxury suites; each comes with its own pool and hot spa inside a private courtyard and patio. These pools are ideal for group bookings or couples in search of a romantic weekend for two.

If you’re looking for fitness …

Warm up in the three-lane Lap Pool. Surrounded by palm trees and tucked away within an enclosed courtyard, the lap pools offer easy access to the spa villas. You can also stay cool and fit by booking a water-based workout activity or lap swim with the Fitness Center.
