Pool heat in summer?

For those of you who use villas in the summer months do you get the pool heated?

We were there in July and didn't get it heated. Not worth it. Yes it feels a little bit cold when you first get in but I think any swimming pool does - you soon get used to it.

This is something we've been discussing because of my fibromyalgia as it's recommended we don't swim in cold pools. When I had hydrotherapy it was 37 degrees and it felt fab x

With fibro you should always have the pool heat turned on - even in the height of summer the actual temperature of the water without would lead to increased aches and pains from the coolness of it.

DW has it, and we've often discussed moving to FL for the winter months and back here for the summer months because of the heat.....

We've never had to have the pool heated in July or August.

My wife also has physical / mobility problems and have always found the pool to be a perfect temperature in August without the need for heat.
