I still fail to understand the appeal of this place. The pool is nice enough and the buildings are historic looking (the key word being "looking" because nothing in Miami is very old). However, in the end, it is just a swimming pool. The tour buses drive by this place several times a day and disgorge their passengers to oooh... More

This is a gorgeous, historical pool in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Coral Gables. Fun for the entire family!

I've only titled this okay, because, unfortunately the pool is under refurbishing right now, so I only had a chance to peek in through the gates. If it had water in it, it looks look it would be a beautiful place to lounge around. Hopefully I will return and see what it looks like when in is fixed up. They... More

Such a gorgeous place. The pool is so nice and fresh, with not too much chlorine. They change the water with an aquifer every 2 days. It is so beautiful at this pool with rocks and water falls. it feels like an event, not just a pool. The cafe is good too. If you go, check out the historical photos... More

…even at eleven bucks - but try to go on a less-crowded day, in order to maximize your time there. When it's crowded, forget about it; when it's not, you'll have a really pleasant stay. And you'd have to travel to Europe to find anything comparable (unless you count the unreality of the various Disney themed resorts). Oh, and the... More

This pool is a wonderful attraction from a bygone era. The pool is not heated which is a problem for many Floridians that like really warm water but it is very large and nice. It is a bit pricey for tourists ($11.00) but much cheaper for locals.

We recently had the opportunity to check out this lovely public pool while were visiting South Beach (we visited on 10/19/14). It was a short drive and worth the trip. Having read many positive reviews of it on TA, we weren't too concerned about whether or not we'd like it, and boy did it live up to the hype! We... More

This is such a cool place to hang out on a hot summer day. Loved it! The fresh water is amazing. Great kiddy pool for the little ones, too.

What a fantastic place to bring kids! The water is the most cooling and refreshing temperature...the caves and waterfall make this a real adventure....one feels like a bathing beauty, surrounded by lush atmosphere...only problem is it gets crowded on weekends and doesn't have much seating.....but why sit when you can bathe in this delicious pool! Kids will love it!
