“Closed for repairs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Just a warning, Closed for repairs in January and February 2013, so check before you go. Very charming and old world as I viewed it through a locked fence. Definitely glad I saw it and worth driving by.

“Little Venice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a great place that has served generations of gables residents. My grandparents met and fell in love here while attending UM back in 1940. Still has that charm with its grotto, beaches and Mediterranean architecture. My only reservation is the water is colder than I'd care for and so I never go in. Tropical polar bears would love it.

“Always an amazing place to see in Coral Gables!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Always may seem a bit excessive; however, I cannot think of a bad time to go to Venetian Pool! Groups or friends or family... it's a beautiful place to be. Bring your picnic lunch and hang out under a shade trww or on the sandy beach. Be sure to go on a sunny day because that water is CHILLY-and ever so refreshing!

“A little bit of paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Forget the packed Miami beach for a day and visit the most tranquil pool in Miami. The pool brings a little bit of Europe to Coral Gables which retains the serenity and peacefulness of the surrounding area. Truly amazing.

“Actually far more than just the pool...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

The concierge at the Biltmore Hotel gave us a detailed map for a self-guided tour of the whole Corral Gables area, including the Venetian Pool (sadly empty at this point), the Miracle Mile (definitely several steps below Rodeo Drive)...and a huge range of magnificent homes and streets. The whole tour was a bit too long and took more time than we expected but the experience was very good. Well worth doing at least a portion of the suggested route.
