A rooftop pool for the 21-plus crowd will be called The Cabana Five Bar & Pool Deck, with a full-service bar, poolside dining, cabana rentals and live entertainment.

The other pool, called Oasis Pool, will be "tucked away on the ground level, nestled in a quiet and relaxing space adorned with greenery and patio furniture," according to Tropicana.

As for the new food and drink options, Whiskey Five, Chelsea Five Gastropub and Gilchrist Restaurant are opening. 

Guests will be able to grab craft cocktails and play billiards at Whiskey Five, enjoy ocean views at the gastropub and stop in to Gilchrist for breakfast or lunch.

The new amenities will open to the public and resort guests on Friday, May 25.
