There are two reasons this pool is on the road side of the building rather than the beach side. First, it allows the building to be closer to the beach, as there does not need to be space for a pool on the ocean side. Second, by not having a pool on the ocean side, the condos on the ground floor do not have the people around the pool next to their patios overlooking the ocean.
Our condo has the pool next to the beach. It make it very pleasant to be at the pool and to look over the ocean. However, for people who own condos on the ground floor next to the pool, they have no privacy on their patios. Their patios are right next to all of the people who are hanging out by the pool. We are very pleased to have our balcony on the second floor, not next to the pool.
If I had a condo on the ground floor, I would be pleased that the pool is on the street side. If I had a condo on a higher floor, I think I would want a the pool on the ocean side.
