This place did not live up to its expectations. It is nothing more than a pool, just another pool. Probably your hotel pool would be better than this.

This is a must see site when visiting the Miami neighborhood of Coral Gables. The pool is not heated and can be shockingly cold when you first get in, but definitely worth enduring to enjoy this tropical paradise setting. There is food for sale and...More

We had been planning to visit the Pool for many years, but something always got in the way. We had a picture of my mother there that was probably 1939-40. It's right by the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, an absolutely beautiful city. Gorgeous. It...More

Yes. They even allowed ordering out and having our food brought in if we wished. At the time, the restaurant was being renovated. So, I do not know if that had any bearing on the situation.
