“water pool” vs “swimming pool”

Is it correct to use water pool instead of swimming pool? In some hotel descriptions I have found water pool, but it looks like it was a mistake.


Hotels can typically invent creative names for their facilities — no grammatical/ literary oversight needed.

A water pool is just that, a pool of water. A swimming pool is a pool of water specially designated for the purpose of swimming.

It is not common to refer to a swimming pool as a water pool at all.

One plausibility, however, is:
A suitable pool of water where swimming is allowed, such as part of a lake (esp. in rural areas). It is quite common for people to swim in natural pools of water regularly used for the purpose.
