Following my previews post about the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego – I will be reviewing the Grand Hyatt main pool, as I previously talked about their adult pool. This property is huge and offers great things for their guest and I was impressed by their state of the art installations. The service provided by the front desk, bell desk and concierge was fantastic and they were all very accommodating and attentive to meet your needs and wants. Keep in mind this property has two buildings and I was staying at the Seaport Tower which is where the main pool and Fitness Center is located and it worked great on my favor because I was staying on floor number 5 and the fitness center and pool was located just below me on floor #4.
Once you’re off from the elevators to the left hand side you will be able to find the fitness center and that connects to the pool as well. However, if you would like to skip the walk through the gym to get to the pool – To the right hand side of the gym you will find a door that leads towards the pool. Either way you take, you will arrive at the pool. The fitness center is beautiful and also features great views of the Marina also equipped with the latest fitness equipment out right now. Free weights, treadmills, ellipticals, stair masters and much more.
Signs Towards gym & pool
When I first walked into the pool, I was impressed by how big everything was. The pool offers a variety of seating around the area with stunning views of the Marina, as I mentioned before. They are a mix of recliner chairs, regular chairs, a shade area covered to sit down and relax and also a fire pit zone area with seats and benches to gather around by the fire. Keep in mind that it’s turned off during the day and it can be turned on by the hotel staff if someone is requesting it. I personally think thats a nice touch by the hotel because the area is beautiful, well kept and everything is extremely clean. Do know that this is completely different from the adult pool because kids are allowed here and during my visit they were quite a few kids yelling, crying and running around the pool, but if you don’t let that bother you – you will be just fine. Within the pool you will also find 2 jacuzzis on the far end of the pool overlooking the Marina, they were spacious and well maintained.
Main pool overview
Pool recliner chairs & Seating.
The lounge chairs at the pool are nothing fancy or something to rave about, unlike the ones at the adult pool are much more comfortable because they offer a softer padding that they put on top of the chair. Knowing that this is their main pool, less effort and luxury is being added into their recliner chairs but still, they were comfortable to lay on for a few and catch some sun rays. You will find this chairs all around the pool at each corner, side to side, and end to end so you won’t have any problems finding a place to sit down and unwind.
Aside from the recliner chairs around the pool – They also offer a variety of seating for the guest. Some are located within a shade for those that want to be away from the sun and others are exposed to the sun. Within the chairs you will also have a rounded table where you can dine in, etc. I find that to be a great touch as well and its also a very spacious area. Within that zone of the pool a menu is placed where they feature some of their dishes such as pizza, salads, etc.

Manchester Grand Hyatt – Main Pool Fire Pit
As I mentioned on the beginning of the post – One of my favorite features of the main pool is the fire pit located overlooking the marina of San Diego. At the time, it was turned off but during the evening you can request it to get it turned on. It also has great seating around along with some benches.
Manchester Grand Hyatt Adult Pool – Bottom Line
Overall, I am very pleased with this property and their main pool and I would choose this one over the adult pool on days thats if fairly calm and not full of kids – mainly because everything it offers, the view and their spacious jacuzzis. The hotel does a great job on maintaining things in good shape and also, very clean. I find it convenient thats its right next to the gym because I am one that enjoys a good swim followed by a work out. If you are traveling with kids, this is a great place to take them as they will be able to enjoy the pool and everything it offers.
Now that I have covered the adult pool and main pool, which one would you rather be at?
