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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 Notes

NOTE: Casual public access is available Monday to Friday only (excluding July, August, and holidays), from 8 AM to 4 PM. The ticket office, however, is open only from 10 AM to 1 PM and from 4 to 8 PM, so, if you want to purchase admission outside these times, you must buy a ticket the previous day or before the afternoon break. (See the next note for bookings in the time of COVID.)
As noted in the "Admission" section of the listing, during the COVID pandemic, advance booking and prepayment online are required. To register, make a booking, and pay, start at the LOGIN page.

Facility Reviews

This terrific swim centre is in a great location, next to the lovely Doramas Park, at the back of one of the city's best hotels (the Santa Catalina), and near the yacht harbour. (Note: This is not the CN Metropol, which is nearby.)

The centre is owned by the city council, but managed by the Club Natación Las Palmas, and the opening times and ticket arrangements for casual public access swimming reflect this (see above). There is a relaxed atmosphere at the pools, which are well maintained. The lanes are slightly narrow but this is not usually a problem, as there are not many swimmers. Some lanes are reserved for club members.

There are lockers but bring your own padlock. Swim hats are compulsory and there is a shower poolside.
