          I recently stayed at the Hard Rock but I was very disappointed with the pool. It was very shallow and unswimmable. I will be staying at the Portofino for the first time in September. Please tell me the pools are deeper than at hard rock and swimming is actually possible.

          Hubby and I are thinking of coming in August--know it will be warm but ok for us as that's why we are thinking of staying on property. My question is if we rent a car from Hertz at the Portifino do we still need to pay to park each night we are there. Thinking we might like a car to do some exploring, but if have to pay to park each night, might not be worth it. Thanks for any info
