Any help would be appreciated!
Great question...The AI resort The Reef in Playa had some shade but only in the afternoon, and the shaded area was a little too close to the swim up bar. By mid afternoon that section of the pool did get a little crazy....
The Holiday inn in Puerto Vallarta had none, but there was a ton of chair that had umbrellas so you could sit in the shade with out a problem.
The Nickelodeon hotel in orlando Fl. did have some shade at all of their pools and there were plenty of shaded areas around the pools too.
