Port Royal Shows Off Newly Expanded, Renovated Pool

Posted: Updated:
PORT ARANSAS (Kiii News) -

The pool at the Port Royal Resort, one of the main attractions in Port Aransas, has been expanded, and was seen for the first time Thursday evening.

"We are the largest pool in South Texas," Port Royal's Ruby Acuna said. "Our pool actually holds about 900,000 gallons of water."

An open house was held to show off the pool's new look. The $4 million renovation took almost 11 months to complete, and along with expanding the pool, it added new decor including slides and cabanas.

It seems no one was safe from the cascarones, as some of the campers organized an attack on our very own kiii camera man, Jay Pena.More >>
