          I recently stayed at the Hard Rock but I was very disappointed with the pool. It was very shallow and unswimmable. I will be staying at the Portofino for the first time in September. Please tell me the pools are deeper than at hard rock and swimming is actually possible.

          One pool is geared for the younger crowd as it has a slide and rock wall and is zero entry. There is another pool that is suited to swimming and seems to be geared toward adults interested in swimming and relaxing quietly.

          Hubby and I are thinking of coming in August--know it will be warm but ok for us as that's why we are thinking of staying on property. My question is if we rent a car from Hertz at the Portifino do we still need to pay to park each night we are there. Thinking we might like a car to do some exploring, but if have to pay to park each night, might not be worth it. Thanks for any info
