10 Incredible Apartment Pools in Orlando

With so many Orlando apartments having long lists of amenities, it may be hard to narrow down your choices when you're on the hunt. That's why it's always a good idea to prioritize your favorites.

If you're moving with a pet, amenities for them may top your list. If you love to work out, but don't want to pay for a gym membership, a solid fitness center could be most important. If you want an apartment that helps you relax, spa-like features may take the cake. If you want a place to chill, a place to hang and a place to cool off on hot Florida days though, don't forget to think about the pool.

The best apartment pools in Orlando offer up more than just a body of water. They create an atmosphere where you can relax and take advantage of other amenities. Where are these great spots you ask? Why, right on this list.

Bright orange lounge chairs encircle the rectangular, resort-style pool at NORA. Set among the palm trees, you're looking at a very chill area to cool off and hang out. Covered wicker couches, set off to the side, give you a space when you want to get out of the sun but stay close to the pool.

If the pool isn't enough water for you, living in this North Quarter community puts you within walking distance of Lake Eola. Known as Sandy Beach by the locals, this lake and park include swan paddle boats and hosts the weekly Orlando Farmers Market. It's also an ideal venue to attend events all year long.

You can hang out up here and stay dry or take a dip. It's all topped off with great views of the Orlando skyline.

If you like living close to lakes as much as you want a pool at home, this North Orange community is the perfect place. Here, you're close to Loch Haven Park, which not only has three lakes but is also home to the Mennello Museum of American Art, the Orlando Science Center and the Orlando Shakespeare Theater.

One of three swimming pools, this particular one within Arbors at Maitland has something that most pools don't — a fountain right in the middle. An entry point in each corner, this unique pool sits in the middle of the community's beautifully landscaped grounds. Pops of color frame the space with a combination of loungers umbrella-covered four-tops and cabanas with large couches.

If you prefer to use your pool time for working out, you'll also find a lap pool in this Summit South community. Use in conjunction with the two-story fitness center you'll find indoors. Rounding out our list of three, the final pool is a lounge pool for those who just want to sit and chill as they cool off from that intense Orlando sun.
