“Interesting Pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

While we did not stop here to swim, it is worth a 15 minute stop to just see this interesting pool built in an old rock quarry. There is a $1 fee/person just to walk through the facility, but there is enough access to see most of the pool and surrounding area from a couple of balconies without paying a fee. It appears that it would be a nice place to spend the day swimming and laying out in the sun. In any case, if you are in the area it is worth the time to stop by just to see it for 15 minutes.

“So much fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

The pool was very clean and the water was so nice and cool. I especially loved the waterfall! The bathrooms were kept really clean and they even had showers which was extremely convenient since we were heading back to Orlando after the pool.

“Lovely swim in an interesting pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had a great time. It helped that it was a midweek day, so very un-busy. The pool itself is interesting as well as being a nice setting.

“Local Gem, Great for Kids of All Ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Beautiful, historic local spot hidden away in the middle of residential Coral Gables. Great for a non-traditional afternoon of swimming in a spring-fed pool carved from natural coral rock. But even just a peak in is worth the drive to see one of the places that makes Coral Gables so sepcial.
