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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

The pool is in excellent condition and very clean. Due to its size it's usually possible to have a good swim tho' evenings and lunch times are busiest.
The pool is very nice; water about 79ºF (26ºC) -comfortable, but cool. Mornings are the best times, by 2 PM it starts to get crowded. Unfortunately, in Madrid pools lane discipline is not enforced and it can be difficult to get in a good swim if the pool is crowded.
Just back from a great swim at this location. Day passes are limited and available only for entry Monday through Thursday from 6 to 9 PM. (I'm not sure if the restriction is applicable year-round or only in summer.) The 50 meter pool was divided into two halves, with a total of sixteen 25 meter lanes. I got in the pool exactly at 6 PM and swam for an hour without sharing my lane.
Bring a towel, toiletries (no soap is provided in showers), and a small lock for the lockers provided (make sure it's a small lock, as a standard lock won't fit through hasp).
[July, 2014]
Formerly a 50m pool, when they permanently divided it, they took 2½ meters out of the total length. This created two pools, one of 25 meters and the other of 22½ meters.
Locks can be purchased for €4 from a vending machine downstairs prior to entering the locker rooms.
New: Identification is required for access, passport worked well.
