At Villa del Palmar Cancun, we are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our guests, both in and around our pool areas. Before you dive into the fun, it’s essential for parents to familiarize themselves with these crucial safety guidelines. They are designed to minimize the risk of accidents and create a safe swimming environment for everyone.

Pool Safety Tips for Parents

Keep a Watchful Eye

Always supervise your children vigilantly while they are in or near the pool. Avoid distractions such as smartphones or books and designate a responsible adult to oversee pool activities to prevent accidents or emergencies. Your active presence and attention are key to ensuring your family a safe and enjoyable swimming experience.


Know the Pool Depths

Please take note of the depth of the water and encourage children to stay within areas appropriate for their swimming abilities. Younger children should remain in shallow areas where they can comfortably touch the bottom, while older children can venture into deeper waters under close supervision.

No Roughhousing

Discourage rough play or horseplay in the water, which can lead to accidents or injuries. Instead, incentivize your children to engage in safe and gentle swimming practices, respecting the space and safety of others in the pool.

Use Floatation Devices

If your child requires a flotation device for added safety, ensure it is properly fitted and inflated before use. Supervise your child closely while wearing the device, and never rely solely on them for supervision or safety.


Obey Safety Signs

Adhere to all posted rules and safety signs in and around the pool area. They provide essential guidelines for safe swimming practices, including prohibiting diving, running, or using glass containers near the pool.

Take Regular Breaks

Encourage children to take breaks from swimming to rest, rehydrate, and refuel with snacks. Prolonged periods of swimming without breaks can lead to fatigue and even sunburns, exponentially increasing the risk of accidents or exhaustion.

Know Emergency Procedures

Rest assured that we are fully prepared to handle any emergency at Villa del Palmar Cancun. Our highly trained lifeguards and medical personnel are strategically stationed around the pool areas, ready to respond swiftly and decisively in an unlikely emergency. It is always better for parents to familiarize themselves with the location of these emergency services in the unlikely event of trouble. We are always ready to ensure the safety and well-being of your family.

Communicate with Staff

If your children participate in supervised water activities or programs, we encourage you to communicate with our staff and inform them of your children’s swimming abilities and any specific needs they may have. This information will enable our staff members to provide appropriate supervision and assistance, ensuring your child’s safety and enjoyment. We are here to support you and your family to create a safe and enjoyable swimming experience.

Avoid Drains and Covers

Educate children about the dangers of pool drains and covers, emphasizing the importance of avoiding play near these areas if they are not going inside. Pool drains and covers can pose entrapment hazards, and children should be taught to respect these safety measures and practice safe swimming habits.

Sunscreen Protection

Last but not least, ensure your family’s safety by applying a generous amount of sunscreen before heading to the pool. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to shield against harmful UV rays. Remember to reapply sunscreen every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating, and choose a waterproof formula to maintain protection while enjoying water activities.
