I thought my kids would love this. They thought it was “okay”. Lifeguards are very strict, no jumping in the pool at all. They are 9,10 and 11... and couldn’t appreciate the history. It was VERY expensive, so I wish I would have passed. They...More

I highly recommend this beautiful pool. I know there are environmental concerns about the pool because it is drained and filled completely every night. I’m not sure if those concerns are warranted or not. What I can say, is that this pool is an experience...More

I expected a more historical setting for this pool at this price. It is basically like hotel theme pools in Las Vegas or Caribbean All inclusive resort. I don't see a reason why this exist in the first place. In Miami everyone has an access...More

This place is awesome! One bad thing you can’t take small children due to something with the water. Which is understandable! But it’s an experience

Great larger pool set up as a smaller hand made lake in natural surroundings. Worth a visit, but it is costly if besides its entrance fee you plan on having food and drinks there. The activity is limited to sitting or having a swim at...More

Excellent swimming pool for adults and kids. Admission prices were $15 per adult and less (I forget how much) for kids. Seems steep, but there are lifeguards and amenities to pay for. We went in late February and there was no wait to get in...More

Yes. They just charge everybody at the entrance. I just wanted to get in for 15 minutes to take pictures, and i had to pay.

They're open until 6:30 on that day. It's a hard call. If it is really hot, many would have already left for the day. Most people go there in the early afternoon.
