The water here is cool and stays that way most of the day. Great way to spend the day! It's a do not miss if you are in the area. Note:Wear an old suit-the back of my bathing suit was covered in naturally occuring tannic acid from sitting on the rocks and mu husbands swim shirt was originally white and... More

We have visited Venetian pool for a half day. Nice surroundings and not a very commercial setup. There were not many people in the pool. Classic surroundings, Nice cool water. Small café for a limited lunch. Only negative point could be the over zealous life guards watching everything step you take. But that is a minor thing, it is absolutely... More

We happened to pick a perfect day, a Monday when the pool was at half capacity, about 200 the ticket seller told me. I have no idea where one would park when the lot becomes full as the Venetian Pool is somewhat isolated in the middle of an upscale neighbourhood. Tables, lounge chairs and places to stretch out were plentiful... More

Nice water temp. Really cools u off in the summer heat. Kinda crowded ( went on a Monday) . Waterfall was ok I guess. No slide, but pretty big pool, plenty of room to swim. Spring water is nice looking and feeling. Didn't think it was worth the money though.

The water was a bit cold for my taste, but the place it's beautiful, specially the big waterfall. My family enjoyed it a lot, can't wait to go back.

This is a truly unique swimming pool. Best thing to do, is go there. Take a tour of this historic place then dive in for a special swim.

Just spent the day at the Venetian Pool this past weekend. I've lived in Miami my whole life and have never been here. It was recommended to me by some friends and I have to say it was wonderful. We had a great time. The pool is beautiful, very clean, very safe. Plenty of life guards throughout the property. The... More

This is a great place for family fun. Come early in order to obtain a parking space and expect to hear children having a good time there. There is locker rental for 5 dollars and a 5 dollar deposit, chaises are also available for rent as well. The Venetian Pool also has a café that serves pizza, hot dogs and... More

Just a big quarry. Nothing too special. It would be ok for small children, but not for teenagers. I thought it was kinda dirty and not very interesting. They had a small section of history about the pool in a wall before you enter. Cost a 1$ to walk around if you didnt swim.

This pool is a unique jewel.. The pool is a pride of Coral Gables with it's history and beauty. Nestled within the beautiful town of Coral Gables and close proximity to the Biltmore Hotel, it is a combination of natural beauty, tropical landscaping, refreshing cool spring water, caves and grottos. This is a stop for anyone wanting a dip to... More
