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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

A key card gets you into the pool area, including pool locker rooms. It's a well-run facility with additional services.
[September, 2014]
Rating: 9 on a scale of 10. Well maintained with a great set-up for lap swimming. It wasn't crowded, either in the morning or after 8:30 PM.
[November, 2014]
This is a centrally located pool, perfect for lap swimming.
[July, 2015]
I agree with other reviews; it's a great pool! Although located right in the middle of San Sebastian by the water, the pool entry is oddly hard to find -- look not for a large building but instead for a small windowed enclosure with stairs and an elevator down to the facility, which is beneath Plaza de Cervantes along the beach, just north of Hotel Londres.

On our visit (a November Monday in 2018) there were classes from 9 to 10:30 and again starting at noon; they take up two of the six lanes and one lane is generally reserved for water walkers. The water was a fine temperature for distance swimming, and the saline system produced good, clear water without a chlorine smell. Your 9€ gets you all-day access to pool and gym.

One special note. This is an extraordinarily disabled-friendly pool. The lifeguard took special care to help those in wheelchairs in and out of the pool using waterproof chairs and a ramp.
