Tropico Wiki

For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Pool.

Pools provide Sports to tourists. They don't seem too disturbed by the surroundings; ugliness & pollution.


No Dress Code: "Default Mode."
Upscale Dress Code: "Improves service quality by 20%, but only eco and wealthy can visit this building."(+20%, Eco & Wealthy)


Has a minimum of 60 for service quality, plus 0~40 for worker skill. Beauty and pollution do not effect service quality; though they and crime probably effect tourist reviews.

Trash may appear, being cast off from surrounding buildings; trash receptacles do not. Beach attire is worn by tourists.

In-Game Text


"Tourists are lazy creatures. Why go to the ocean, when the ocean can come to them? A Pool is always an excellent choice around cheap and regular hotels. And with the upscale dress code you'll even be able to keep fat, ugly slobs away from the sensitive eyes of the lifeguards."


"All tourists like to hang by the pool."


This can be placed on poor beauty and mild pollution without effecting Service Quality. Nice to have a decent structure for these problem areas. Tourist will notice crime so ensure it doesn't become an issue.
