Sure, those colorful floats and noodles are fun for the kids, but come adult swim time? Having an inflatable armchair to lounge in is the move — and we've got just the one. The Intex Floating Recliner is your ticket to relaxation this summer, with its cushy design and (dual!) cup holders. Oh, and did we mention you can snag it for just $30 at Amazon? Let's dive in!

With all due respect to the armchair in your living room, this inflatable recliner is what you need to be lounging in.

The only thing you'll be searching for during Marco Polo is this cushy pool float. (Amazon)

With nearly 13,000 five-star seals of approval, the Intex Floating Recliner is a bona fide hit with Amazon customers — and for good reason!

One shopper accurately described it as a "La-Z-Boy for the pool!" while another wrote, "It has exceeded my expectations. The lounge is large enough to comfortably fit an adult and provides a spacious relaxing place to float in the pool or lake. The recliner design is fantastic, as it allows you to lean back and relax while keeping your head and feet elevated about the water."

Several shoppers praised this recliner's design, specifically its cup holders. Some noted, though, that they would have loved one tiny tweak. "Cup holders could be a bit wider, but overall, this is the only float for [my boyfriend]," another honest reviewer wrote. "Want a strong but bougie float? This is it."

One more reviewer had the right idea when purchasing this float — and we think lots of shoppers can relate. "I ordered this float for cooler days when I want to get in the pool but not get super wet," a five-star fan wrote. "It's perfect for that! My dog gets on it with me and we float around the pool."

Have a pool buddy? They'll love you forever for including them in the fun with this two-pack.
