  • The folk here are reet fancy but the gym is very good. It's hard in Spain to find a one off gym visit for the travelling gym guy who doesn't want a membership. At €11 its pricy if u just wanna lift. P...  more »
  • A friend suggested we visit as we wanted a swim on tour & to soak up Olympic ambiance! $75 Aussie dollars to enter for 2 adults & 2 kids - better be good! Swim hats, Goggles, locker key all required. ...  more »
  • Visited this as part of a walk around the Olympic park and the magic fountain. It's quite a walk from the tube stop (espanya), but I think you could the funicular up the other way. Great Olympic pool,...  more »

  • I got up early and ran to this pool, 10km. I had packed €10 into my bag as I thought that would be sufficient... Public swim costs €11.85... The gentleman at desk seemed to take pleasure in repeating price and refusing entry... A thoroughly frustrating start to the day, run was good though!!!
  • Great place to swim. Our family loved it, and my son celebrated his 12th birthday by belting up and down the 50m pool freestyle, backstroke, breastroke AND fly - not that he was showing off... And we weren't at all jealous... :oD One thing though - take a small padlock for the lockers as the public ones are secured by a push-in hasp and padlock rather than being coin-operated. You can borrow these from Reception though if you didn't know (which we didn't) Lovely place, lovely staff. Great experience all round!
  • Excellent for a good swim. I was looking for the other municipal pool, but I ended going to this one. Swimming in a 50m pool is great!
  • Gimnasio bueno y piscinas olimpicas para disfrutar nadando. Limpio y bien acondicionado
  • Great facilities, although a day ticket is quite expensive (around 12 euroes).
