There is no other public pool in the world like this one! This is a must visit when you are in Coral Gables, the City Beautiful. The pool is spring-fed by a natural aquifer and is 72 degrees, so the perfect way to cool off in the summer time heat in Florida.

As most of the reviews state, the pools are beautiful, if you have the chance to see it, you must. I went with my three children (8,5 & 3) who are all swimmers, as well as with some friends, on a summer weekday. Because the pool area is so large, It was a bit stressful to keep close tabs on...

My son and I arrived just after opening on a Sunday and were immediately in awe of this place. Since it was early, there were only a few people there. The parking across the street was easy to find a spot. We brought our own beach chairs and drinks from home and staked out a spot perched on the far... More

My family and I had a Florida vacation this year. We traveled from Jacksonville to Key West. One of the places I was excited about seeing was the Venetian Pool in Coral Gables. We arrived on July 5th (Sat) but were turned away because of insufficient life guards. We waited around for a little while hoping we would be able... More

When you're finally sick of Disney and all the manufactured fun we try to throw at you when you come to Florida, take a dip in the Venetian Pool and see how Florida was before you had to give up all your cash at the state line. Gorgeous architecture. Great history. Refreshing pool. Real Florida.

Come here for a joyful and memorable time, singles-couples-families. Many photo spots in the area like waterfalls, sandy beach, caves, rainshowers, venetian bridges and towers. Water is fresh & natural, no chlorine and... More

Want a beautiful, scenic, historic place where you can take awesome pictures? Then go here! The water is nice and cool which is just what you need in a hot Miami day. Oh, and they have a cave you can swim into. They have a nice snack bar too. It's located in the beautiful city of Coral Gables surrounded by... More

We visited it with friends and we had a good time enjoying the pool although was summer the water was a little cold. Try to get a table at the end if you want to take a break from the pool and have a snack or something.

This is a municipal-operated pool so you get many nice features such as lifeguards, changing areas, lockers, toilets, showers, and a café. However, the pool feels like you stumbled upon a natural pool. The water is refreshing and the landscape was great. There are not diving boards, but there is a cave and waterfall that can be explored.
