The action heats up with the weather at Barnsley Resort’s pool, a Grecian-style saltwater pool overlooking the golf course. The unheated pool is open but quiet in winter, despite surprisingly warm days (even in February), but April through September is bustling. A pool attendant sees to the snack bar and can offer the full Woodlands Grill menu, including alcoholic drinks, for poolside delivery. Free chilled towels are available, along with easily forgotten items such as sunblock for purchase. Adjustable wooden loungers line three sides of the pool, and bistro tables and chairs sit under a pergola on two sides. The Forbes Travel Guide recommended hotel is also planning to build poolside cabanas for summer 2012, which will be free on a first come, first served basis and may also be used for private outdoor spa treatments.
The pool at Barnsley Resort offers special amenities, such as fresh, chilled towels on hot summer days and select outdoor spa treatments. A full-time pool attendant assists guests with cocktail refreshments and dining requests, which may be enjoyed poolside in reclining lounge chairs or at bistro tables.
