Venetian Pool, Coral Gables

4.2/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Made by filling up a coral rock quarry that supplied materials for building Coral Gables, Venetian Pool was originally known as Venetian Casino. The blue water reflects the Mediterranean Revival architecture next to it, and even touts a Venetian bridge and mooring posts where imaginary gondolas dock for the night. Fresh water fills the pool and is drained and replaced daily through artesian wells. A waterfall and a grotto add to the ambiance and make the pool seem like a natural phenomenon. It's not uncommon to see a wedding taking place poolside with guests spilling out of the attraction's cafe.

  • Should you have ever seen in any case if one is already in Coral Gables. Beautiful facility, where one must not necessarily only swim. Admission $13 for locker and lying again $5 become due if you want. A must see!

  • This place is beautiful. It is a historic pool nestled away in a beautiful suburb of Miami. It is a freshwater pool so it is very refreshing. Entry is $13 for adults and $8 for children. I believe chi...  read more »
  • The place is very cute and pool also, I thought you had somewhere where a little explained the history of the place. I like to spend a couple of hours in a familiar environment.

  • Great family place getting rather expensive but for the experience totally worth it. Pool status cold you have a sand area get free vests have a giant waterfall font have to deal with chlorine plenty of seating. Can bring your own food and drinks. A great day to spend the day. Plan to stay from open to close. And take the tour if you can really nice and old and amazing it's worth a look. I go once a month and it's an hour drive so that says something.
  • Nice place. Water is alittle cold but kids had a blast. Food was not that expensive considering you are in that gables. Worth the price. Great friendly staff.
  • Home away from home! My happy place! I grew up in the Gables and this was my neighborhood pool. Fond memories here. The staff is very friendly, respectful and take their jobs seriously which is nice to see in today's society. I think those of us that grew up here and took our swimming lessons here should have a lifetime pass, lol.
  • The ambiance is quite nice for this historic Coral Gables landmark. The reason for only 2 stars is that the pool water was not clean.....most of the bottom of the pool was slimy algae and there was debrie floating in the water. For a Coral Gables city with strict ordinances this aqua fed pool should be immaculate, not only the water quality but also the ground keeping. As a life long resident of Miami I was quite disappointed....the city should give me a refund and thank me for taking the time to write this honest review.
  • They charge for lounge chairs and at a certain point they stop allowing people in. The water is great though. The kids loved jumping off the rocks, swimming under the waterfall and walking through the cave. And when they were tired of the water they were able to build sandcastle.
