Topic Wiki

-Use VRBO and rent a condo with a private pool

-Try to avoid the larger touristy locations. I.E., when travelling to the Bahamas instead of going to Nassua try a different, more secluded island.

-Try colder destinations (E.G. Canada, Alaska, Mountain areas, etc.)

-Even in warmer areas, non beach destinations are always better (E.G. Arizona, Utah, etc.)

That's all I wanted to know.

I thought there is some trick on how to sneak in to the pool at 1 AM when no one is there....  :P

In Israel I've gotten the managers to let me have the pool after hours for a family swim.

I was always wondering how people on here always talk about the pool and spa at the hotels, when I ever I wanted to go the the pool I almost vomited from half way seeing whats going on there.... Can someone enlighten me?
Here's my approach, I speak to the lifeguard right when I come and there are usually specific times when it mysteriously empties out every day which he enlightens me to.

If its a lower end hotel there are usually no lifeguards and you can get in whenever you want (even when its shut )
If its a upper class resort in a non densely populated jewish area the management is usually very accomodating when i explain to them the issue.

Well for someone who cares about this issue and makes the decision to avoid the pool because others are there  and wants to be able to go swimming then they have to decide what's more important to them. Being able to go swimming, or using points.
Also, we all know there are ways to cash out points to use for renting your own property.

A shvim kleid will save many problems (aquamodesta or the like)  u could snorkel in it, swim and hike. Kauai has so many beaches. If ur looking for a guaranteed pritzus free beach go to polihale state park.  It's 12 miles long. But flying to Hawaii without going to other beaches or snorkeling is a waste of time.

As someone pointed out above, hawaii isn't that bad and I'm sure if you stay away from the busy season you'll find plenty of secluded beaches
To give you am example, I was in Kauai in January and we went to polihale beach midday- it was empty besides for a random surfer

There should be a "warning-graphic" on that photo.
