Pools on my vacation are disappointing

Swimming pools need to be designed by swimmers! It's clear that pools more often are not being designed for swimming. This pool is just plain crazy. All one can do is jump in or hang on the side. Maybe a little bit of slow trekking across the middle might work. A simple straight line between the two ends might be an improvement. Any pool that is more for bathing than swimming ought not be called a swimming pool.

  1. The unfortunate fact of the matter is that most people in hotels only use the pool to submerge themselves, and maybe swim to the other side. Otherwise, most people hang out around the edges (thus the odd shape: increased perimeter). I would opt to consider such pools to be "bathing pools" more than swimming pools. I wish that they would make pools that were simple rectangles rather than odd shapes.
