Oops, I made an error in my original post. My suggestion was: "Marriott ban those under 18 years of age from using serenity pools". I meant to say, ban anyone under 21 years of age or the legal drinking age of the country visited. Attaining the legal age, typically age 21 in the US, should eliminate any underage alcoholic consumption and associated issues. Serenity pools would then have a greater propensity to be calm, peaceful, tranquil, relaxing, and quiet, as the name implies. If a Msrriott resort has a serenity pool, it would have other pools on-site as well. Finally, Marriott needs to provide pool oversight and route any offenders to more appropriate pools. What do you think?
While I agree that adults deserve a sanctuary, seeing a pool animated with the life of young families is special.
When a 'sanctuary' away from home is needed, consider the many properties that feature a spa master suite with a jetted tub or jacuzzi. In New England, I frequent 3. Try the Little Harbor Marina Suites at Marriott's Wentworth by the Sea in New Castle New Hampshire near the Portsmouth Seacoast; the SpringHill Suites in Manchester, New Hampshire; and the Courtyard Burlington Harbor on Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont.

In Florida, our favorite sanctuary is the Imperial Palm Villas in Orlando. There are 46 three bedroom villas all featuring a whirlpool tub in the master bedroom suite. In fact, we're there at least twice a year.
As a suggestion to Marriott, it would great to add, in-room spa/jacuzzi to the list of Amenities in Find and Reserve online.
