I have joined today to actually ask this same question. Are many pools heated in Pollensa? If so does anyone know to what temperature and if an additional cost is charged for the heating? Due to illness water has to be a certain temperature for me.
Thank you

As a villa owner I can confirm that unfortunately an additional charge is made for pool heating in most cases - to be honest the heating is so expensive to run that we have to charge extra for it - we don't make any sort of profit on it! I'm not sure what the going rate is this year but I remember being quite shocked last year when told how much we had to charge not to make a loss on it.

We have rented villas & apartments in July & August & found that at that time of year the pools don't need to be heated. Would imagine in September they would be fairly warm anyway from all the summer sun. I can see a need in the Spring/Autumn months but not in summer. Unless as you say its for medical reasons & you need it fairly warm. Not quite as warm as the sea though which is beautiful!

Yes I agree with Cheryl. Certainly when we were at our villa a couple of weeks ago the pool was somewhat chilly but after a couple of days of lovely warm sunshine it was wonderful. The problem we find with ours is that the pool cools very quickly if there is bad weather and takes a while to heat again.
I found Kate's post very interesting as we had thought about heating our pool. My husbands relatives in the States had found them to be much cheaper even with transportation costs. If the cost of running it will be so expensive then i'm not so sure. I thought it would be nice out of season when we use the villa ourselves. If the sun isn't out and it is chilly I probably wouldn't feel like using it anyway. emm much thought!

I echo Cheryl's view re pool heating

Not required June to End September unless for medical reasons

We have also used unheated pool in April, May and October ...... cold when you first get in but fine once acclimatised if you are swimming ....... though not always ok for just lolling around ............... biggest problem in spring and autumn is that you don;t have the really strong sun to quickly dry you and warm you when you get out ........ I normally find a hot chocolate does the trick lol

The pool heating does make the pool usable in April and late October - which is when we are usually in PP, so the expense is just about worth it. It takes a couple of days to warm up completely though - and yes, it does cool down quickly when it rains. I'm not sure we would have installed it just for ourselves but guests were asking for it and were mostly happy to pay the extra cost. Apparently there is an increasing trend for people to use pool heating even in July and August - sounds absolutely crazy I know!

Would it cost save to install a pool cover to conserve heat - or maybe that would be a safety risk if it was able to be used by clients. Would there be a way for you to lock it open for the season, and just use it yourselves out of season?

You tend to find that most of the villas near the beaches won't have pools because of the sea and plus there isn't the landspace to accommodate it unless it is one of the large frontline ones on the way down to Llenaire.

Most do tend to be in the area between PP and the old town and really nearer to the old town.

Recently I was spèaking to someone who installs these pool heaters and he was explaining that unless they are covered each night the heat is lost over night so the pool will be less than cold but not warm!!! Also he mentioned that the cost of running it - the electricity is very very expensive - most houses will not have sufficient power contracted to cope with the pool heater so the first thing will be too increase your power supply with your electric supplier and then pay lots of money for the joy of the heater motor kicking in!! Personally I have heard lots of people complain that they had booked a hotel or villa with heated pool but that it was still too chilly to use so I am not sure that it is worth either installing OR paying the extra for the property offering heated pool. There must be someone out there that has a personal experience of a heated pool???

I have read all replies-I own a villa in lanzarote and the pool is heated in winter and solar in summer.you dont know what difference a heated pool makes.Trouble is we cant find them in places like Majorca/Minorca.I agree you must cover your pool at night otherwise it loses all its heat-now that is expensive.
