Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

This is a fantastic facility at an impressively low price of entry. The competition pool is often covered or unavailable because of events. That is fine, however, because the warm-up pool is excellent, as well. 50 meters long-course with flags, clocks and the perfect temperature for a hard swim. The pool is literally in the middle of nowhere with no public transportation available. The only option is to drive yourself or take an Uber or taxi. The entrance is in the back of the building, not very well marked, but easy to find. Change, go into the pool, and pay the lifeguard.

Still very clean and high quality, though going there requires dedication, as it is, indeed, about a half hour from the downtown area - without traffic. When I went, the warm-up pool was available with 25m lanes (27º C), plus two lanes were set up in the diving pool. It's much better than the standard hotel pool that's often only good for sunning and floating around.

I confirm the earlier reviews. This pool is fantastic; it's a uniform three meters deep, with very clean water kept at the right temperature for proper exercise. The facilities are stunning. They include a fitness room and other sports facilities. You can even pay the lifeguard by credit card. Monthly membership is also available.
