Located just 30 minutes north of Houston you will find this amazing hotel surrounded by a abundance of nature and trees. Their pool is one of the best, especially if you have children traveling with you to enjoy it. Here you can view photos of this amazing outdoor pool as you will see it is huge. This pool is so cool it even has a name, it is the “Forest Oasis Waterscape”. During the Summer they have fun activities including dive-in movies, smore’s and pop fountains.
The pools is open year round, it is not heated but that is only a problem in the very middle of winter since we have so many hot and sunny days in Texas. For little children they have a zero grade entry pool, a section called Puffy’s spray ground (Puffy is The Woodlands mascot Puffy the Pinecone) which features waterspouts and fountains. Older children and teenagers will enjoy the 30 foot forest tower with a double helix slide, waterfall, water basketball and volleyball. For adults who wish to take it easy they have a relaxing lagoon style pool right next to the recreation pool. It features bench seating next to its ten foot waterfall. You can also warm up around the outdoor fire pit, or get a refreshment at “The Coolwater Café”.

The pool is beautiful but when you go to swim in it you will see why I put it on the best of the Houston hotel swimming pools. While you swim you are surrounded by a wall of windows, seen here.
