How can we make our concrete pool area look good?

We built our pool but around the pool is concrete and it is ugly. How can we make this look good? Concrete and pool edge is the same level. We tried some concrete paint about 3 years ago but it faded and disappeared.
Please help with ideas that will not break bank.

    There is also concret stain, it can last longer than paint. I dont know how economical it is.

    There is a treatment made from rubber. Check at the pool store. It looks like tiny pebbles but it is rubber.

    I don't think staining is that expensive if you do it yourself, and I don't think it's that hard to do. I researched it several years ago and found a number of DIYers who'd done beautiful jobs, scoring with a saw into intricate patterns and staining several colors. You don't want to go that detailed, I'm sure, but have a look around. It could work for you.
