Granted, cocktail pools can be quite stunning and eye-catching and a decided focal point for the backyard. However, their compact size translates to less play space and not much room for freestyle swimming at all. And if you are a big pool party person, a cocktail pool might let you down in this regard. (And you definitely don’t want a waiting list for your guests with time limits on when they can get into the pool!)
Overall, however, a cocktail pool will serve you just as well as a larger pool. It will definitely add to the appeal of your home, as well. But if you have your heart set on a larger pool to add more fun and games to the agenda, then go for the larger pool. The price tag of a cocktail pool can be equivalent to – or more than – a full size pool. So, if space is not an issue, then just go for the larger pool.
Lastly, when it comes to maintenance, it is obviously easier to keep a cocktail pool clean due to its size. Also, a cocktail pool requires less water and electricity. If sticking to a smaller budget is what you have in mind, a cocktail pool just might be the answer.
