I purchased a house that came with a pool. The drawback is that tile is covering the outside of the pool which makes it extremely slippery for my family and guests. What a good solution to this challenge? Lastly, what's going to be the best and cheapest alternative to this? Someone mentioned to me that the rubbery mats they use at restaurants works very well, but I need to know the best and cheapest alternative.

Anti-slip coating is a better solution (than mats).

(Many vendors, many choices).

coat the tile with a clear shelac and spread sand before it dries.

Safe Grip is not a coating so it won't chip, peel or wear away. It actually micro etches the surface of the tile to create an invisible tread on the surface of the tile. Safe Grip is permanent treatment and guaranteed to last for year.

Personally I would make guests wear those socks that have rubbery bumps all over the soles.  The drawback would be that they will get tanned all over except for their feet (and the other bits that are normally not exposed to the sun), but rather that than a broken neck ;-)

...but I need to know the best and cheapest alternative.

Can you clarify that? It's probable that there is no alternative (singular) that is both "best" and "cheapest". Are you looking for two lists, one list of the best choices and a second list of the cheapest choices?

It's hard to complain about points, but I have to say that I was only hoping to clarify the question. For future reference, I'll add that points may be split among multiple comments. That might be valuable to other (real) EExpert commenters on your questions.
