The 5 nicest hotel pools in Miami
1) The Biltmore
Renowned for its size – it was once the largest in the world – the Biltmore pool is 2137 square meters. It’s also where the original Tarzan, actor Johnny Weissmüller, worked as a lifeguard. For the most luxe experience, rent a cabana and take an outdoor rain shower under native palms after a dip.
2) National Hotel
This pair of pools – one more of a square, the other a thin rectangle – includes the longest infinity-edge pool in Miami Beach. Fringed by palm trees and other assorted native foliage that provides shade, the pools are so tempting you might never make it to the beach. C’est la vida loca.

3) 1 Hotel South Beach
Deeply concerned with sustainability, 1 Hotel incorporates design with ecologically sound practices. This ethos extends to the South Pool, the Center Pool, the adult-only Rooftop Pool and the private Cabana Pool, where the day beds and cabanas utilize reclaimed wood and natural fabrics and all views of the ocean are pristine and panoramic.
4) The Standard Miami Beach
Complete with a hydrotherapy spa with plenty of outdoor soaking tubs of different styles and temperatures, this hotel perches like a heron on the Venetian Causeway. As does the main zero-entry pool, which would look like it continues straight into the bay if it weren’t for the bright yellow lounge chairs on the deck.
5) Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club
This is not just any Four Seasons, and this is not just any pool. The renovated Surf Club was home to Harvey Firestone and his Rat Pack friends. The beachside pool is just an extension of this elegant palazzo. You almost expect a serenade as you lounge by the palm trees.
