Spring Fed pool dug out of a limestone quarry-about a 100 years ago. Water temperature is 72 degrees. Beautiful falls, caves, and big enough to float and swim without "bumping" into people. Beautiful area around the pool--with variety of areas to explore. Lockers available, rental lawn chairs and Snack Bar with nice outside area to enjoy a lunch. Very relaxing... More

Very nice and quiet - beautifull place being close to 100 years old. Worth using an afternoon there with children.

This is a naturally fed spring pool. Well worth the entrance fee. Went with my 9 year old son. we had a blast. The vegetation is beautiful and the water is cool and refreshing.

Get there early. We were there 30 minutes before it opened and there was a line to get in. When we left there were people asking for our parking spot. The pool reaches capacity fast and they close. It is well worth going to.

Can not go wrong with a visit to the Venetian pool! Beautiful historic and a much needed refreshing way to spend a day! Water can be a tad too cold for some but for locals always a plus! Kids love the caves. They even have a day to bring your four legged friends! Lots of birthdays are spent here with... More

This was a relaxing day out sitting by the pool. It is a bit of a journey from Miami which meant public transport wasn't an option. The best way to get there is by taxi which cost about 60 dollars and takes 20-30 mins or so. Definitely worth a visit if you want a chilled out day in a nice... More

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.
