    It has been a few years since we've stayed at POP. We are hoping to return next August. My husband enjoys the quiet pools at the moderates. So which one is the least busy? If I recall, I would say the computer pool has the least activity. I noticed on our most recent trip, a number of resorts having activities by the pool in the afternoon. Has POP also started this? Thanks!

    I have no idea if they are doing activities but yes the Computer pool by the 80's is the least busy. At least when we have been there.

    Last week we went to the bowling pin pool to check it out and my kids were bored and wanted to go back to the hippy dippy. It was pretty quiet there.

    Computer pool quietest
    Bowling Pin second quietest
    Hippy Dippy Pool busiest
    three days of our trip we hopped around the pools to check and each day it was the same. We mostly stuck to the bowling pin pool as we were in the 50s section

    Agree with others-
    Computer is considered by some to be boring because its a square- but I like it because with my little one she didnt get splashed, lots of room to move. We staying in the 90s so it was close. (Loved the 90s btw- it was just a cut across the parking lot to the buses)

    Bowling Pin- lots of kids when I visited it- but quiet. Not bad but I liked the larger space of the computer.

    60s- DD loved the kid pool but with kids running around splashing she got knocked down a few times and was happy to go. The pool there was very very busy with the bar and close to classic hall. It had the flowers spraying in - which made my kid nervous but wanted to explore it.

    Have a fun trip!!

    Hippy Dippy pool is the absolute busiest, followed by the Bowling Pin pool. The computer pool is always the least busy....at least in my 5 stays at POP that has been the case.

    We have stayed in the 80's section poolside about 4 times and it's pretty quiet. It can get busy at night, but it's such a big pool that there's space for a bunch of people.
