We still may be a few weeks out from the official start of summer but Miami residents wouldn't know it from the weather, with highs already flirting with the 90s and our sticky overwhelming humidity in full force.

Air conditioning is a must, as is a cold beverage, but so is the pool, which can be a Miamian's best friend in the steamy months ahead. There are some truly incredible pool offerings found across Miami's extensive hotel scene.

The following are 11 of the best hotel pools in the Miami area, mapped from south to north while featuring some of your best Instagram photos.

Nothing about the Freehand Miami pool screams lavish but that's part of the appeal for the small space connected to the Broken Shaker, one of the best bars in South Beach and home of the most delicious cocktails..

The Fontainebleau pool scene rattles the senses. As a regular home for concerts and celebrities, the people-watching is fantastic. Just be careful around the big dates, where it'll cost your rent for entrance.
