We were in Miami/Coral Gables and killing a little time while waiting for a dinner reservation at the Biltmore. The Miracle Mile was packed so we went by the Venetian Pool. Really cool but a little expensive if you just want to walk around for a bit. That being said, it is quite the experience and I recommend it to... More

What would Coral Gables be without The Venitian Pool? First, when Mr. Merritt (founder and developer of Coral Gables) idealized the neighborhood in his mind, he had real Florida Coral driven in from Key West, and undoubtedly, it gives you the sensation of being on a natural reef. Its vast extension makes you feel that family and friends who came... More

If you go to Miami, of course you are led to go to Miami Beach. But if you have a few days this pool is simple amazing with fresh water and all the facilities needed. Pictures explain the rest

Living in Miami almost 10 months, I just went now. Is amazing, a huge pool in the middle of town. As in Miami ALWAYS has Sun, this is a perfect place to go. You'll definitely love this place. Inside there is a store where you can buy food and drink, but you can also bring yours, that's how I did... More

Went here on our trip through coral gables. Even though the pool is closed for renovation it is still beautiful to see. I can imagine it would be great swimming here in the summer.

It uses spring water, and has beautiful water falls, caves to swim into, a little sand beach.......we go for hours at a time to relax!! unfortunately, it is now closed for... More

We were not told that the Venetian Pool closes for the winter season ( despite the temperatures still being in the 80s). It is still worth the trip to see this pool with its naturally - filling system - it is beautiful. Check whether it is open before going
