Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; 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 access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, 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 each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three 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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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. 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 your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

Facility Notes

NOTE: The Club Med is closed from the beginning of January through mid-April.
The "default" entry for hotel pools on Swimmers Guide is "Single-swim admission is not available to members of the general public, unless registered as guests at the hotel." We know of at least one Club Med property that does sell day-passes (that include meals, snacks, and beverages and are a good bit pricier than your average pool's) so, if you're in the area, you might want to check whether this property also offers non-guest admissions. (if you find out, either way, please click on the Edit button to the right to let us know.)

Facility Reviews

This is a a large pool with a shallow/kids zone separated from the lap lanes by a subsurface 'causeway' and a semi circular leisure section of deeper water contiguous to the lanes. The lap lanes have stripes, but no targets, and I didn't see any lane ropes, but the pool drains so well that turbulence wasn't much of an issue. Swimmers were pretty respectful of your space. Pool hours are 9 AM to 6 PM daily, when guards are on duty.

The water was very clean, a great temperature, and the pool is super-convenient - assuming you're staying in the hotel. There were no lane ropes, but there's plenty of room for training or laps, albeit I was there in October, not the August high-season. Bring your own gear - I did not even see a kickboard. Glorious sun and views.

This place is so far out of the way I don't think there is much, if any daily traffic if it is permitted. There is a public golf course attached, so maybe golfers have some privileges, but I don't know.
