The Ritz-Carlton, Naples


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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The pool with three lanes is strangely shaped, something like an eagle with its wings spread, but the spread-wings section, where the three lanes are located, is rectangular in shape and looks quite good for lap swimming; it's called the "Relaxation Pool" on the hotel's website. The resort also has a larger, free-form pool, the "Family Pool", that one hopes will attract the kiddies, waders, and splashers.

Facility Reviews

The water temperature in the lap pool is a little on the warm side, ~ 84º F., but lap swimmers have priority for pool use. There is another pool at the resort for recreation use.
The lap pool frequently closes at 4 PM for private poolside parties (it did, every day during my stay) and the information is not published anywhere, so you have to ask at the front desk, or no lap swimming at the end of the day for you!
Just spent a weekend at the RC Naples. The lap pool, while striped and with nice anti-turbulence lane ropes, does not have targets. The center lane has what appear to be stainless steel speaker covers nicely located at each end, so grab that lane if you can. Otherwise, there is dark contrasting edge tile so you can hit your mark pretty easily. Hours are 'dawn to dusk' - no night swimming. The pool is shallow and warm, as noted. It's best first thing in the morning, when whatever evaporation there is makes it more tolerable. If the pool will be closed for an event, they post a sign at the walkway that most people use to access the pool to give you a heads up.
