Hotel with great pool Recommendations?

My coworker and his wife are planning a weekend trip without the kids. They would like to stay off-site and are interested in hotels that have really great pools (not necessarily kid oriented). The Sharaton looks good but I was wondering what other options you experts would suggest?

In your opinion what does a great pool have? Lap swimming? Zero entry resort pool? Waterfall?

Have you considered going to Discovery Cove (they have a non-dolphin swim package). They have great pools in my opinion.

Try Reunion Resort. They have many pools even a nice one on the 10th or 11th floor of the Grande.

Thank you for your suggestions, I think large and zero entry are options they would like.

I would try to book the wyndham bonnet creek resort, either the hotel or condos. They have 6 pools 2 lazy rivers, 2 of the pools are zero entry, lots of hot tubs etc. Our favorite for Orlando. It is also in the center of Disney property, so very convenient.

Look at the Marriott world resort pool, largest pool I have ever been in with many features. We also like the pool at the hilton parc soleil. It has big slide, water fall, fountains, zero entry.
