Jamaica Beach's Swimming Pool 2015 Season Update:  It is nearing the end of the 2015 Swimming Pool Season. As of August 24, 2015, the pool will be open on Monday & Wednesday from 10AM-1PM & 4PM-7PM,  and on Saturday from 10AM-5PM (pool will be closed on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday unless otherwise noted and weather permitting). The City of Jamaica Beach swimming pool is open to the public with purchase of admission. The entry fee for residents and non-residents is $5.00 per person for a daily pass (age 5 & under are free with an adult). You may still use your 2015 Season Pass for free entry. We ask everyone to follow our Pool Rules. Anyone intruding on the premises before or after hours will be in violation of Ordinance 99-04, which is a Class C Misdemeanor and can be punishable by a fine.

Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) is imposed on the rental of a room or space costing $15.00 or more each day for State reporting and $2.00 or more each day for Local reporting. Any person leasing their house(s), or room in their house, as a Short Term Rental must collect the tax from their customers in the same way a hotel or motel collects the tax from their guests. The HOT rate in Jamaica Beach is 15% (6% to State and 9% to Local) of the cost of the room.  Please visit the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts website for more information and/or State reporting. Download the city's Hotel Occupancy Tax Form for Local reporting and remitting. Please file reports, even if no tax was collected, by due date to avoid State and Local penalties.
