Jun 26, 2017 June 26, 2017

Believe it or not, some people don't actually enjoy the beach. It's hot, it's (sometimes) crowded, and they could definitely do without all that sand stuck in their bathing suit. Water-and-sun-loving Miamians can also escape to these top hotel pools on our list (none of which require an overnight stay).

If you're looking for a true hotel atmosphere, pay for a day pass at the EPIC. Two outdoor pools take up the building's 16th floor. Spend the day swimming with mesmerizing views all around you.

Even though the Delano South Beach enforces a strict hotel guests-only policy during the day, you can visit this stylish “water salon” at night for free. This legendary swimming pool has a table and chairs right in the water and a life-size chessboard. Enjoy the music while you mingle in the water, or take a romantic moonlit walk on the beach.
