    My question to you is if you were going to pick a non-deluxe WDW hotel based on the pool alone what hotel would you pick? Assume you like watersides lol.

        I agree, the CSR pool is very nice.

          I'd say the pool was the single best part of the Coronado Springs Hotel. However, since I'm not much of a pool guy, it wasn't a big draw for me.

            does Coronado Springs even have a waterslide? i can't recall, even though i've stayed there.

            caribbean beach is very nice, and i believe it has a waterslide. plus all the grounds of the hotel are gorgeous and feel very much like a tropical island

                One thing about Coronado Springs is it's a very spread out resort, so that could mean a lot of walking to/from the pool depending on what building you stay in. Might or might not be a big deal for you, just thought I'd mention it. Otherwise the pool and slide are very nice there.

                Minor correction...
                Pools, not pool. CSR has more than one pool. There is the big one with the water slide near the center of the resort and three quiet pools around the outside area of the resort. Check a CSR map to see where those are located.

                    I love the pool at Port Orleans, so that would be my pick, but Coronado Springs looks awesome too.

                        Personally I still like the Caribbean beach resort pool the best, though Coronado Springs is a close second...

                        That doesn't mean I wouldn't enjoy or don't think the rest are awesome looking...just that I think that Caribbean and Coronado have the pool aspect down to a T

                          I just have a hard time judging the resort on Pool Alone... because the 3 best pools in my opinion:

                          1. Coronado Springs
                          2. Art of Animation
                          3. Caribbean Beach

                          are 3 properties I would never stay at! lol

                            While the theme at the CSR is well done, it's important to note that the main pool has no deep end, and is only about 3 foot deep all around.

                              Im not much of a pool guy. The last time i went in one, someone called for a harpoon, but, when im with a group of people and we stay at the Coronado Springs, everyone raves over it.

                                This would be my ranking as well.

                                Then I follow it with the Port Orleans Riverside and AoA, before any of the other Value Resorts.

                                One of the destinctions between Value and Moderates, is that Moderates have a slide.

                                I agree. All resorts have mulitple pools but the Moderates have a main pool with more themeing and amenaties near it. This can be far from your room. However the exception is the Port Orleans French Quarter which is much more compact but only has one pool. POFQ is my preferred moderate resort.

                                  Lots of good info here! Thanks! The kids love the slides at the pools, and I think I like the theme at the Caribbean beach pool....

                                    Here's a pic I took a few years ago. I believe the deepest part (near the pool bar) is 5 feet, while the rest is 3ft 6". I also believe it has the longest slide of the mods.

                                        Thanks. I sure would like to be in that pool right about now.
