Best for Chilling out - Expert review of Lago Martiánez Swimming Pools

The pride of Puerto - swimming pools by day and a casino under a lake by night.

Designed by César Manrique, the Lago Martiánez complex is part open-air art gallery, part swimming pools and all style.

The first of its kind in Spain when it opened in 1971, the complex had a 30 million euro facelift earlier this decade and has emerged, shiny and chic into the 21st century.

With seven fabulous pools including a lake and childrens' pools, restaurants, kiosks and bars, you never have to leave.

After dark it morphs into the entrance to the town's casino which is located beneath the lake...how cool is that?

Price advice: 

It costs 3.50 euros for adults, and 1.20 euros for children (over 10 years), which includes your sunbed and mattress.

Expert tips: 
You can buy a pass for either 15 or 30 days which brings the price down even more but is only worth getting if you intend spending a lot of days there.
Even if you're not a table player, it's worth visiting after dark for the pretty lights and the coloured fountain.
