A huge Venetian style swimming pool made of coral. Worth visiting, swim, getting a tan or rent for a party.

Once the pool reaches capacity, it is closed. I appreciate the safety concerns for the guests. This is a beautiful pool built reminiscent of Venice with waterfalls and made to transport you away. It is beautifully landscaped and well supervised. The lines were long and...More

They don't want you to because they sell food there but I have done it. Just take a large bag with sandwiches. I'm sure they will not ask you anything. Lol

Definitely chlorinated but only very slightly. No red-eye or smell of chlorine to notice. lovely water to swim in in my opinion.
