Writing or e-maling, isn't easy for me. Being a senior citizen, doesn't help.I chose your company Clff's Pools to work on my pool & signed up a servce contract as well. I happened to meet Mr. CJ junior and a gentleman, by the name of 'Tom' . I am sorry, I don,'t know his last name.I feel compelled to commend these gentlemen and also the one ,who was the first one to come to break the pool surface.Again, I am sorry I can't remember their full names. I found all of them as caring professionals , and very patient & seem to have done a good job.I , also, found your office staff to be very pleasant and helpful. Thank you.
Thank you for your hard work and diligence to complete my pool and patio in a timely manner and with a high level of quality. I want to personally thank several staff members who made this happen.
Diane and Lynn, in the office, demonstrated excellent customer service skills when answering the phone and communicating messages. They sought answers to my questions and returned my calls quickly. They couldn't have been kinder.
Tom did an excellent job of explaining the why and how of my pool resurfacing. He chose to communicate with me in person (which was very effective) and actually got down into my empty pool to show me the challenges. The pool crew did a great job of resurfacing the pool and cleaning up the pool and the patio. The gentleman who did the tile did an excellent job.
Steve did a great job with the pool fire up process. On the very first visit, he clearly explained the steps and the visits to me. He answered my questions, so that I was clear on what I needed to do. It was very helpful that he left door hangers at each visit, so I knew where I was in the process.
After several challenges with miscommunication about the patio scope of work, I appreciated that Tony agreed to come to my home and walk the patio with me. He explained each detail of what needed to be done, answered every question, and showed me pictures (in the book and via email) to ensure we were in agreement about the work to be done.
Oscar is my hero. Oscar exceeded every expectation I had in terms of customer service and work quality. He clearly communicated what work was going to be done, when it was going to be done, and what I needed to do because of it. He confirmed these details with me multiple times. He spoke with me every day advising me of updates. Even when there was a two-day weather delay, he called both days to advise me. Oscar is a professional. He is courteous, customer-oriented, and communicative as well as an expert in his field. His skill is evident in that he mastered the challenges posed by my patio — his work is amazing. It's clear he has perfected his craft. Furthermore, Oscar and the gentleman who works with him cleaned up any evidence of their presence around the entire house and they skimmed and vacuumed my pool. Oscar was determined to do the best job possible and to exceed my expectations. He took the time to not only do things right, but to also do the right thing. It is very rare to find such expert skill and excellent service in one person — you have found it in Oscar.
I received many compliments on the pool and patio from the guests of my brother's wedding, which was celebrated at my house all weekend, just days after the patio completion. Thank you for making my pool and patio more beautiful and inviting.

We just had our pool retiled and resurfaced, could not be happier with the results. Everything was completed in a timely manner, everyone was extremely professional and helpful. Your company came highly recommended from several colleagues, and I would not hesitate to refer you or use your company again in the future. I wish every contractor/company was as professional as yours. Rob, Phil and Steve were your employees that worked on our pool, please let them know how appreciative we are for their efforts.
Thank you very much,

Just a brief note to let you know how pleased my husband and I are with the refinishing of the pool.
Frankly I did want it done but my husband was insistent and this time I am glad and listrude to him. The finished product is lovely!!
Your staff was exemplary and extremely professional... such hard workers in extreme heat, plus they all cleared up afterwards (rare, in most companies !)
Orville and Tom stick out to my mind for their attention to details, both are perfectionists and their willingness to go the extra mile to achieve customer satisfaction is difficult to find in most companies. Congratulation to you for retaining such fine employees !!
ps The fellow that did the Diamond Brite were also terrific !
We can't believe it has been two years since your wonderful team installed our Travertine patio and refinished our pool. Both look brand new. We love the work and still get so many compliments.
Special thanks to Humberto and his team. We are so pleased with the Country Classic Color that he helped us select. His team was excellent and professional. We were impressed by the way that he and his team handled the job.
Thanks again for a job well done. We will continue to recommended your company to all our friends and neighbors.

Steve is still in the start-up phase and continues to brush the pool & beach platforms to remove the excess cream residue.
As soon as we are up and running 100%, I will let you, Humberto & tom know so you can stop by to look at the new finish.
Thank you again for all your assistance. Everyone at Cliff's Pools was extremely professional and always willing to assist with any questions we had.
OK, So he shows up on time, anytime
OK, So he cleans the pool PERFECTLY
OK, So he never leaves a mess behind
OK, So he is a kind, pleasant, fun person to be around
BUT and you know this was coming...
He knows our cat JETER ADORES living on the patio And he knows after 10 years she would escape, give then oppurtunity And he watches her, and she watches him
So they have their day together and I know when he leaves his card, she puts her paw print of approval on it.
Many Thanks - Happy Holidays to you and yours.
Your team completed my pool resurfacing last week. I would like you to know that we have been very pleased with your team's service and final result. Our thanks to ...
- Joe Ingrao - for helping us pick the tile, surface, and answering many questions.
- Mrs. Cliff - for helping with the scheduling and keeping things on track.
- Yanio - for prepping the pool, and answering many questions.
- Juan, Carlos, Hector - for plastering the pool. They worked very hard in difficult weather and made it look nice.
- Tom - for his inspections, attention to detail, and answering my start up questions.
I want to thank you for all your assistance during my patio project.
I especially want to make sure that Oscar, Marble Tec Craftsman, receives credit for being a great person to work with. He went out of his way to make sure I was Happy.
Although my HOA made it very difficult and costly to me in denying the design on my walkway, Oscar was very patient and caring and tried to make everything work peacefully.
It is my opinion; Oscar is an honest and professional person and an asset to your company. I hope he will receive recognition for all his good work. He demonstrated to me that it is very important to do a good job and to make sure the customer is very happy with his work.
Thank you again
We wrote you an email before to thank you for the work done at our home. We would also like to thank Oscar and Leo for the wonderful job they did in our patio. Their professionalism during each step of the process was amazing. As you know, we had the spray deck that needed to be removed, which was a hard job to do, but they did it in one day. After that, 3 more days to finish the job, and it's looking beautiful, URO tile was the best for our patio! Oscar and Leo are hard workers and very pleasant to deal with. I would recommend their work to everybody.
Have a great weekend,
I'd like to give a personal thanks to Tony who came out and created the quote, Brendan for helping us go over the quote and choosing the materials to be used, a special thanks to Dwight who did the actual work on the pool, to Tom who helped wrap it all up and finally with Jorge who completed the fire up so our pool stays looking awesome!!!
Even when I came to drop off our deposit check, I was greeted with friendly enjoyable staff in the office who sat down and chatted with me and my 2 year old son.
You are all so awesome!!! Our pool looks great! I was so worried about this entire process- as soon as we began working with you I felt reassured.
Thanks so very much for all of your hard work and thanks for being a company with true integrity! it is a very rare quality in Florida.
I have already shouted out all over Facebook and to my friends and family about the work you did. I have given your number to a co-worked and I will continue to sing your praises every time I can!
We had kool deck around our pool for 28 years which had cracked in a few places. Cliff's promptly responded to our request for an estimate and assured us that using a textured spraydeck with random scorelines would cover and conceal the previous cracks, which it has. However after watching the work of Oscar, who was meticulous in re-designing our patio, we believe the great job has as much to do with the skill of the person doing the job as it has to do with the product, if not more so. We were very happy with the work that Oscar did.
Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with the outcome of our pool resurfacing. It looks brand new. Please thank your staff and Tom Samano for an outstanding job. We will not hesitate to recommend your company to our friends and neighbors.
Also, your company is well represented by your customer service department who was always pleasant and helpful. Thanks again.
We wanted to let you know that we are very pleased with the final result of our URO driveway, spray deck coping on the pool, and the re-sealing of our URO patio. The driveway looks great and we already have had many neighbors drive by and inquire about it. They liked the URO stone design and some even thought it was tile. I hope you get a couple of referrals from our neighbors.
Oscar did an excellent job and we could not be happier with his performance. He was professiona, knowledgeable, and flexible in working with us to complete the URO design that we requested. It is evident that Oscar takes great pride in his work. He worked closely with us to make sure that every detail was completed to our satisfaction. We drove through our neighborhood and told Oscar that we have the best looking driveway of the 167 homes in the development. Perhaps we have a bias, but it is based on the URO design and the quality of Oscar's work.
We would also like to thank Tony for his assistance because he was very flexible in working with us to make the URO design the way we wanted it. Tony was professional, knowledgeable, and answered all of our questions with well thought out answers. Also, the customer service from your office team was excellent.
We will definitely recommend Cliff's Pools & Patios to our friends and neighbors. Thanks!
In 2011 you gave us an estimate to totally resurface and renovate our pool. Due to unexpected expenses it was posponed. A year later we started to get estimates to redo the pool, Resurface the patio remove and replace the wood deck with pavers and rescreen and pressure clean the screen enclosure. We got several recommendations trying to get the best price and the best quality.
We are extremely happy that we decided to go with cliffs pools and patios. The decision to have everything done by one company was the smartest way to go and we definitely choose the best company!!! Each step was carefully planned and constantly observed by supervisore. There was never any question about fixing unexpected iddues and do additional cost. In the end we absolutely got the best price, The best Quality and from the most reliable company.
Everyone we delt with from beginning, Joe Ingrao, to end, Oscar, (who pressure cleaned screen and made sure everything was perfect before leaving) was extremely knowledgeable. It is very obvious everyone employed by cliffs pools and patios is extremely loyal, Dedicated, Hard working, Honest, Professional and proud to be part your company.
We highly recommed your company and would be happy to show off our beautiful pool, patio and deck. Thank you so much.
Thank you for the fantastic job you all did on helping us to finish our pool. It was a pleasure working with everyone at Cliff's Pools and all phases of the project ware handled with the highest professionalism.
When Tony and Cliff met with us we realised that we dindn't need to look any further. Tony broke everything down for us and let us decided what we wanted to do. We decided to redo our entire pool, add a arch water fall, new filter, chlorinator, lights, tiles, couplings and diamond brite. Our girls picked the tiles and couplings with Tony's help and looked forward to our new pool. It was a big job but the pool needed it. he told us not to worry that the team that was coming out would make all happen.
He was right, Arcardio is incredible he is an artist. Besides being an artist he is a perfectionist. He tool the time to explain every aspect of waht he was creating and how it worked. When he was done Jorge and his crew came to put the bonding and diamond brite. It was incredible how they all worked as a team. Then we met Steve; he came to do our Fire up and balance the chemicals. He was awesome he showed us how to se our chlorinator, and explained how it all works. And this past Friday we met Ibrael, who will be coming weekly to keep our pool looking beautifully. We are thrilled with our beautiful pool. I couldn't be more pleased with the result and I would be happy to be one of your before and after stories. I will also highly recommend you and your team to anyone who asks me. Great value, highest quality materials and workmanship... a very happy customer!
Organizations like yourself start with professionalism from the top, and I believe that it reflects in all your employees. You should be proud of how well your business is run and how professional every one of your employees are. Thank you for the honesty and integrity of your company and personnel and for providing us with the prettiest pool around.
Please make sure that Cliff knows how satisfied I am with the job done My patio. The workers came and went quietly and courteously. Oscar was very informative and always very respectful. My neighbors and friends were exremely and pleasantly surprised. I told Oscar and I am telling you that I will most certainly recommend Cliff's pools to any and everyone I can.
We would refer your company to family and friends. Thank you, our pool looks great!
The project began with the task of selecting tiles and colors, and your sales staff was very helpful and consultative and listened. They were able to present the many alternatives and explain the advantages of each selection and then help me decide on the preferences. I will say that your proposal was not the lowest price I received from the many companies that I worked with. At the end of the process, I was so impressed with the thoroughness and attention to every detail that i was confident that the quality and value would be worth the addtional cost...and how right I was!
Your installation team was amazing. Everything was done on time and once again, the attention to detial was especially apparent. These kinds of projects can turn into fiascos if not managed properly, and it was the fine-tuned management of the job that made all the difference.
I couldn't be more pleased with the result and I would be happy to be one of your before and after success stories. I will also highly recommend you and your team to anyone who asks me. Great value, highest quality materials and workmanship...happy customer!
Organizations generally gain prode and professionalism from top management, and I believe that your personal experience and successful business philosophy is reflectedin all your employees. You should be proud of how well your business is run and how professional every one of your employees is.
Hope you take a little Christmas with you wherever you go! Each and every one of you are ultimate professionals. Each of you took great pride in refinishing our pool and it truly transformed our backyard. Thanks!
I've had such horrible experiences other well established pool company's and pool contractors recommended by family and friends that I personally drove all the way out west just to make sure that it was an established business. From the moment I set the appointment, they bent over backwards to accommodate my aggressive schedule. Joe showed up when he said he would, had the quote ready for me that same day, and they started the job exactly as promised. Every single person was so professional and caring, from the office calls saying that Barry would be over to start the pool and Tom Samano overseeing the job. Tom took all the time I needed to explain everything to me and was always available for any questions I had.
Not only did you meet my expectations but everyone exceeded them. I feel extremely confident recommending Cliff's Pools and telling everyone not to waste their time calling anyone else, this is a company you can truly trust.
Here we are with our second experience with Cliff's Pools and Patios. Tony was out to give us an estimate to repair our deck and we requested an estimate to resurface the pool also. A week later he came back with tile samples and a contract to do the work.Everything he told us was totally accurate. He said that the paperwork would take 1-2 weeks (it did). Mariann and Pepino arrived and did their magic to prep the pool. Then 4 men arrived and resurfaced the pool. Next Oscar came and pressure cleaned the patio and sealed it. Seven days (including weekend) to do the complete job!
It seemed like we have a series of soldiers arriving in formation to do their job and make room for the next crew. The pool is great - looks like new. The deck is sealed and as beautiful as the day it was created by Tony. The estimated prices were right on the dime. our personnel were polite and unobtrusive as well as perfectionists in their craft.
I believe we first contacted you from an ad in a local paper. We were impressed by you, your staff and your showroom. Our experience with Cliff's Pools and Patios is as stellar today as it was several years ago. What a fortunate day it was when we first met you. Thank you for another outstanding job by a totally outstanding company.
Fred and I would like to THANK you for the fantastic job you all did on helping us to finish our pool. It was a pleasure working with everyone at Cliff's Pools and all phases of the project were handled with the highest levels of professionalism. We'd like to thank Tom and the plastering crew for their hard work and attention to every detail of the job. From the pool prep to the exceptional level of worksmanship we were given to make our finished pool everything we had dreamed of and more. Cliff, we'd especially like to THANK you for recommending Magnificent Island Blue Finish for the pool. It's hard to list all of the words that come to mind every time I look at the finished pool but I can tell you it takes my breath away every time and puts a smile on my face. The color and effect it gave my pool is exactly as you said it would be and what we were looking for. The pool looks truly amazing and Paul and I can't thank you and your entire organization enough for helping to complete our pool with the same kind of love and care that we put into designing and building it. We will highly recommend Cliff's Pools to anyone looking to remodel their pool.
When you take a car for service, you get a survey score. Same thing at a party or at a beauty salon. Survey Score Is: Poor Fair Average Good Excellent The work Tom Samano and his staff did, it was EXCELLENT! Thank you!
You and your staff have been very courteous and knowledgeable during our pool renovation. Everyone who worked on our pool was extremely nice and professional. Our pool looks beautiful thanks to your very talented staff. Thank your for your suggestions and for picking out our new tile. It really looks wonderful. Tom was by far very, very patient knowledgeable and friendly. He took his time explaining the steps that were necessary in taking care of the pool after the pool was filled up again with water. It was a pleasure doing business with your company and we will definitely contact you in the future to hopefully redo our deck.
As long term homeowners we have had many occasions over the years to contract with businesses to work on our homes and we are happy to tell you that working with your company was one of the best experiences we have had especially in Florida. Everyone involved from the two of you to your office staff the prep and the plastering crews and most notably Tom Samano who made sure everything was done right and answered all our questions made this a no stress situation for us. Please express our thanks to all your people. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks and will surely contact you in the future if we can use your services. Thanks!
We recently watched the movie "Transformers"; and that accurately describes what your crew did to our pool. Thank you for a job that summarizes what a professional company represents. From our first sales meeting with Cliff to our first office meeting with Miss Cliff to all the inspections with supervisor Tom and his crew we highly recommend you to those looking to "Transform" their own pools!
First we want to thank Cliff and D'Aima in helping us choose the right design for our pool. You gave us many choices for the tiles, mossaics and other features. We are very pleased with the results. We finally have a beautiful pool that we can swim in. There were various stages for the pool to be done perfectly. Starting with the sandblast and ending with the final texture. The timing was perfectly scheduled after a couple of days of rain that delayed the sand blaster crew. Everyone else was on target as one stage was done, the other crew was ready for the next step. We were very happy with all the crew members that came to work in our pool but particular with Tom (the supervisor of the entire job) and all the work that he did as well. Tom did a fantastic job installing the mossaics and the color lights as well as everything else. Tom kept us informed of what was going on next and the schedule of the crew. He was there every single step to inspect the job and he put the extra effort to make sure the job was well done. He truly is a hard working man and we commend him for that. Thank you so much Tom, Cliff, D'Aima and the rest of Cliff's Pools staff for making sure that our pool was completed in a timely manner and in turn we have a magnificent pool.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for our complete pool renovation. I decided to write 2 letters, one for the pool renovation and this one for the deck renovation. As you know we did an extension to our deck prior to beginning the pool process. That took 9 weeks with permits and inspections, something that was only 5 work days. By the time we were done with the small extension, I didn't know how I was going to get through the pool renovation and deck renovation after what we had just been through with permitting and inspections. We can't even begin to tell you what a pleasure it has been to have your staff in our back yard. When the pool was complete I was already seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Five days and the pool was done and we were now excited about the deck. Our patio had "Chattahoochee" which was an eye sore and since we had a hurricane shutter track across the back of the house we were limited to what we could do. Well let me say that what Tony and Dorothy did was absolutely beautiful. When he showed up on time for our first meeting I had several photos of what I wanted and didn't want. He assured me that I would love the end product. We discussed colors he made suggestions and it was ago. The following day he came to prep the deck and pressure clean. Tom came to drill 2 extra drains. Tony had also noticed that when we had added a walkway the construction company didn't leave a space for the drain strip. He said not to worry he'd work it out. When he removed our old drain there was an issue with the deck having moved and the drain strip would not match the other side unless he cut some of it out. Why I say this is that he gave me an option and explained what had happened and why. It was that way all throughout the process not to mention his calm demeanor. As we watched Tony and Dorothy over the next several days we were amazed at the work they did. I don't know that we have ever seen 2 people work so hard literally on their hands and knees as they scratched the stone images on the deck in 90 something degree weather for hours on end. My back hurt just watching them. Several stages into the process we were already loving what had been done. We couldn't imagine that it would look better once the color was applied. I was a little nervous and told Tony my concerns. He once again assured me that it would look great. The color went on and then the marbling and then the sealant. I kept looking out my kitchen window in awe. The final day came and the grout color went on and the final sealant with grit went on. I forgot to mention they were here at 6:30am to beat the sun on this final day something to do with the grout and heat and a risk of bubbling might occur if it got to hot. There was also a big concern of rain. At the end of the day we had a beautiful deck.
We would like to take this time to thank you and your entire team for such an incredible job. It started when we first met with you. We knew after that meeting we didn't have to look any further. You took time to explain the process so we would know what to expect. I was given a timeline from start to finish and you were right on schedule. The weather was even on our side. Lynn was so professional and so helpful every time I spoke with her. My messages were always returned promptly and she always had the answer to my questions. Pepino was there on Sunday to drain the pool and drop off his equipment. He was there the following morning to start removing the tile with his wife Maryann. As he was working Arcadia came to pressure test the pool system lines. He explained what he was doing and why. I highly recommend those who are redoing their pool to spend the little extra to check for leaks in the pipes, skimmer, and in our case the water fountain while the pool is empty. The following day Pepino was there bright and early to start replacing the old tile. When that was complete the bonding was applied. Tom Samano, the Supervisor stopped by several-times thru out the process to check on the work that was being done and to answer any questions I had. I always had questions. On Friday Victor Munoz crew arrived. The final stage was about to begin. Victor and his crew did an amazing job. At the end of the day our pool was ready to be filled. Tom was there to check on the pool and to go over what was needed to be done during the next 30 days. I was presented with a highlighted list of does and don'ts. He went over everything with me to make sure I understood. In being the owner of an old house and having had many companies do work, we are truly amazed at how each person that came to do his job were so professional, cleaned up after their part of the job and put their tools in one spot. They were all courteous and took tremendous pride in what they did. I would highly recommend Cliff's Pool and Patio to friends and family. Thank you for making our "Little Piece of Paradise" so beautiful."
Just wanted to drop a note to express how pleased we are with the outcome of our Patio renovation! Humberto and his Team did a great Job, along with Wayne following the clean up to get us back up and enjoying our Patio in no time.
I would be sure to recommend the Cliffs Pools Team to anyone looking to have Patio or Pool work done!
We've now entering our final week of "Fire-Up", so before that's over I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for an unbelievable job on what is now our brand new pool.
From start to finish, your company was nothing short of spectacular, including:
- Unlike every other pool company I requested estimates from, you Personally showed up on time, and gave me an estimate the same day - Other companies took weeks, or never followed up at all.
- Dwight was meticulous, an artist at work, and a certified workaholic with the prep work. He worked non-stop for about 12 days in a row (somehow removing about 10 tons of old surface all by himself); cleaned up each night so we weren't left with disaster; and the end result was perfectionl
- The diamond-brite crew was like a well oiled machine, making all of Dwight's hard work come to fruition. It was clearly evident they had done This many times before, and I actually took the day off from work to watch spectacular show take place!
- Your supervisor, Tom, was equally impressive. He was there every step of the way, guaiding us through proper procedures as far as the permit, water company, future maintenance, and a lot more. He blew us away when the showed up Christmas Eve on his day off, to personally show me how to read the water test - and what/how much chemicals to add.
- Even your rates were fair, relative to the work was performed, Especially when it was determined our pool needed five times the prep work in removing the entries old surface. Other companies probably would have used the old "moving company furniture held hostage" tactic!
