We may wish we could remain, eternally, sitting on the steps of the shallow end, while we sip something refreshing and adjust our hat just so (so it doesn't dip into the water), but "eternally" never seems to be in the cards, when it comes to taking up residence in a pretty pool.

There's the Double Your Fun for an Extra $50, which gives resort guests an opportunity to book a second room for a cool fifty bucks (starting at $209 a night). The code? It's P51. A Summer Chill Package starts at $225 and includes a $50-minute spa treatment, as well as a night's stayover. And if you have tots under 12 with you, there's a Family Getaway — Kids Eat Free special afoot. Same code as earlier, P51, and the kid's menu is available at CAVA or at the pool café. Ah yes, the pool café, so close to where you'll lounge for a few hours in the shallow end. Are you feeling the wrinkly fingertips now? You'll have to leave the pool eventually, but, while you're relaxing there, you're free to pretend the shallow home is your new address.
