Venetian Pool, Coral Gables

4.1
#2 of 21 in Things to do in Coral Gables
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.

    The pool is beautiful indeed, in great neighborhood very far from popular! the surprise was that they asked me 40 bucks to get $20 to know maybe it was persona.non! a miss me but reading anywhere public pool and not seeing any comment the entrance fee was a bit baffled because it is quite expensive to get there already being as mentioned very far from areas normally frequentate.la property is however very nice indeed.

    We decided to spend the day at Venetian Pool in Coral Gables (Miami). Our first arrival surprise price! $ 20 per person! The friendly staff that prevents us from going home with a little cooler bag inside which were four small bottles of water. Then the horror, crowded pool. Practically no space around the pool, so the sun beds on each other. ($ 5 the transat). Local ventilated centers present so many groups of children... a pool we found run down and badly maintained, which did not bring out the potential in this place. Very big disappointment, we only stayed finally for two hours and we have run this place to blow on one of the beautiful beaches of Florida... 50 dollars thrown out the window...

    A huge Venetian style swimming pool made of coral. Worth visiting, swim, getting a tan or rent for a party.  more »

    Love, love LOVEEEEEEEE! This place is like a beautiful time warp! Crystal clear water, plenty of space, cool discoveries around every part of the property! Great lifeguards keep you safe, life jackets offered as its pretty deep throughout the pool. If you have kids under 10, probably grab a jacket for them, they will get tired fast! The pool is HUGE! Grab one for yourself if you want to float and relax! No floats are allowed at the pool. Parking was easy, admission is a little pricey, so plan on staying the whole day to take advantage, and bring a picnic cooler!

    Lots of space to move around. Great help and nice small spot for kids to jump off into the pool. The entrance is pretty expensive ($20) than others. Well worth if you understand that the neighborhood is nice and safety is top priority with many lifeguards ready. Great semi man-made beach, cave, and waterfall for everyone to enjoy.

    Honestly if you are a coral gables resident I can see how this place would be a great choice for you local pool but for someone who isn't a resident this place is way overpriced. I would have gave it 3 stars but for the price.....got it a 1 star rating. $50 for my daughter who is 7 my son who is 3 and me just for admission. The amenities are ok. Just a big pool with decent scenery. The pool is run by a bunch of kids. I think the oldest employee I saw there was maybe 28 and he seemed to be one of the head lifeguards. Between my girlfriend her two kids, me and my two kids plus food we spent over $150. Pretty ridiculous. Oh and don't get me started on the food line. It took 30 minutes to get through the line of 7 kids in front of us. Save your money and go to CB Smith park.

    They don't sell tickets after noon on weekends. We couldn't get into it since it was supposedly crowed even when there were ppl going out. The water is literally green which makes you think it is not treated properly. The crowd is shady which is surprising considering its a nice area.

    It was $20 for a pool. It was nice and the water wasnt too cold...but it was $20. Overactive lifeguards to make sure you get your premium protection.
