La Jolla Hotel Swimming Pools

March 11, 2013 | By | 1 Reply More


At The Lodge at Torrey Pines swimmers enjoy underwater classical music and a great golf course view.

Spring is definitely on its way to San Diego. It was 70 degrees (21.1 C) and gorgeous here today, and the daytime temp is forecast to be in the mid-to-high 70s for the rest of the week. However, the ocean temperature is hovering around 60 degrees F (15.6 C), so I thought you might like some info on La Jolla hotel swimming pools.

The majority of La Jolla hotels have pools that are heated to 80 – 85 degrees F year round. The warmest are the Residence Inn by Marriott and Hotel La Jolla, a Kimpton Hotel – which are kept at about 84-85 F (about 29.4 C).

If you’re looking for a salt water pool, your best La Jolla hotel options are The Lodge at Torrey Pines and La Jolla Cove Suites.

If size matters, of all the La Jolla hotel swimming pools, the one at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club is the largest at 60‘ x 75’ – best of the bunch for swimming laps.

A pool with a view? The one at La Valencia on Prospect Street overlooks Scripps Park and the ocean and was once featured on the cover of Travel & Leisure Magazine. I also really love the view from the pool at The Lodge at Torrey Pines, which offers a fantastic panorama of the Torrey Pines Golf Course and the ocean beyond.

La Valencia’s pool overlooks Scripps Park and the ocean.

Of course, you have to be staying at one of these La Jolla hotels to swim in their pools, but anyone can pay a fee and swim at The La Jolla Family Y (84 F) or the Coogan Family Pool at La Jolla High School (80 F / 26.7 C).

About the Author ()

I live in La Jolla and I'm a travel writer, so in addition to enjoying my home town's great weather, beautiful surroundings, and range of cultural and recreational options, I also see La Jolla - and the rest of San Diego - as a travel destination. And what I see sometimes drives me batty. People vacation in La Jolla, but don't take advantage of everything our community offers, so I decided to start this blog and provide insider advice for out-of-towners. Hey. I figure if I can write insider tips about exotic destinations on Authentic Luxury Travel, I ought to be able to lead readers off the beaten path that starts just outside my front door. In the process, I'm having fun revisiting my favorite places and discovering some new ones. Travel writers are naturally snoopy, and this blog is my excuse to have a good ol' sticky beak around my home town. I hope you find it helpful. If you are coming to La Jolla or another area of San Diego and would like my help in planning your trip, please read "Need Help Planning Your Trip" and then email me at ehansen298@aol.com.
