          Hi, I heard the pool is excellent. But we plan to visit during mid August. I want to check whether it's too cold to visit. I heard the pool is heated in previous reviews, but guests still complained the pool being cold. Just wondering what temperature is pool heated to, would it be a good idea to bring family with small children during August as pool would be the main entertainment. Thanks
