Good afternoon, Our pool is divided for majority of hotel guests and a small area for little children to infants. I do want to stress even though the inflatable is ok for use there are a lot of children the pool and I would hate for the young one to be bumped or the toy tip over. Nevertheless if you would like to email your dates for arrival I can let my team know to keep an extra eye on the pool area for your safety. Thank you
