バンコクの Metropolitan ホテルについてです。

Explanation:
In other words, the pool is probably in shadow (from other tall buildings nearby?) in the early morning and late afternoon....
It doesn't sound like something the Hotel PR people themselves would say - more like an independent review....

Notes to answerer
Asker: Actually this is a guidebook. So it may make sense to reveal both good points and shortcomings. Maybe I myself might have thought it strange to write something critical about the hotel and was thus distracted

agree  Rinlien: 同意します。「プールに日が当たるのは昼間のみなので注意してください」といったような意味合いになると思います。

  -> そうでうね。より自然な言い方として「プールに日が当たる」、「プールが日に当たる」などがいいかもしれませんね。ありがとうございます。

agree  Minoru Kuwahara: there is no other context; it would be safer to go with translation as it is in this case. no prob, probably. -
