Jade Waters Resort Pool and WaterPark
Jade Waters is not your typical “waterpark”; it is a resort-style pool with other typical water park features, some beautiful landscaping, tons of seating options, and a lot of shade.
They have a couple of winding Water Slides. Their water slides are fun and fast but not too scary in our opinion. One is tubed and one is open. The water slides usually don’t have extra long lines and move quickly.
A really great Kids Area with a 7000 square foot Splash and Play Kids Zone which is perfect for kids to splash and play with tons of lounge chairs close by.
The activity pool has different play areas and includes an extra large water dump bucket tower that empties every minute, a water playscape, and basketball hoops.
Kids will also love the beach entry pool which is perfect for littles to acclimatize to the water.
And do not forget the Lazy River: 630 feet of lazy river where you can relax on tubes past waterfalls, spray bars, and several garden sculptures.
What Dining Options are there at the Jade Waters Resort Pool?
The Jade Waters Resort Pool Bar and Grill. It’s a food court-like area that offers sit-down service, but you can have your food in your lounge area as well, and cabana service is also available for you.
Open daily from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Is there an Adult only pool?
Yes-ish, a leisure cove pool with hot tubs close by and a swim-up bar with in-pool seating. The swim bar only serves adult beverages to over 21’s. It’s a perfect place to kick back leisurely, and enjoy a cocktail or adult beverage with full eyesight across the Jade Waters Resort Pool complex.
It’s very close to one part of the lazy river and the cabanas, so you can supervise any kids who are resting in the cabana from the adult-only pool deck and it’s easy to spot your kids using the slides or enjoying the rest of the Jade Waters Resort Pool and Water Park.
