"Ray with Tropical Pools is someone that is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is punctual, efficient, honest and actually returns phone calls. He takes such pride in his work and wants to make sure everything is perfect and the owner is happy. His hardworking crew was courteous and shows up as promised, unlike other pool builders we have worked with.

Thank you for everything Ray. We definitely made the right choice using Tropical Pools. "


As we sit on our patio and pool deck it's hard to remember how bad our pool has become over the last 23 years of constant use. You and your crew have restored a nasty mess into a beautiful pool in just 1 day. I never would or could have imagined that pool would look even better than before.
Just imagine our delight to having a contractor in Lake Havasu City who would respond to our phone calls, the same day as you promised. You arrived at our home with paper and pen to give us an estimate, with multiple choices of materials. After we had made our choice you began work the following weekend.
On Saturday morning – bright and early your crew started to chip off all the old plaster. By noon all the old stuff was off the pool, cleaned out of the pool, decking and planter were washed down. Then the re plastering and replacement of tiles began in the pool. By early evening the pool was ready to be refilled with fresh water. WOW. Unbelievable.
Not only were you attentive to our needs, but your crew was pleasant to have at our home. They were very careful with our property and careful not to disturb the neighbors. Everything was done in a timely manner and very professional. We are completely satisfied with both your work and your employees.
It has been a month now since the job was finished. You have continued to come by and take care of the final touches to completing the job. You have made sure the pool valet and pool are working properly. Ray, we will continue to praise you and Tropical Pools to all our friends. Thanks again,
~Pete and Jackie Lakso

Many thanks to Tropical Pools for the amazing job of transforming our pool and spa into something beautiful----and also amazing is that all this was done in 1 day!

Ray and his crew chipped off the old plaster, re-plastered the pool and spa with a beautiful pebble plaster with glass beads and abalone mixed in. After finishing the work, they did a thorough job of cleaning up the pool and patio area. The crew were all courteous, hard working, efficient and did excellent work.

We now have a very beautiful pool and spa!! We highly recommend Ray and Tropical Pools in Lake Havasu City.

"Ray Gillespie saved the day when he stepped in and completed our pool that our previous contractor had abandoned. We cannot thank Ray enough for his attention to detail and for allowing us to enjoy our pool this past summer. If only we had met Ray earlier. Added bonus, he's a really nice person."

"Tropical Pools is a pool builder who has integrity and honesty. He always goes the extra mile for his client. Ray does what he promises in an efficient and timely manner. In other words Ray walks the talk. He is the neatest contractor you will ever deal with as the jobsite is always clean at the end of each day. His ability to see the big picture as well as focus on small details gives him the ability to keep the entire job in perspective. All of this translates into a good experience for the client."

"Our first pool build was not at all what we expected but thank heaven for Tropical Pools! Ray, Dan “the man”, and the entire crew stepped in to rescue us. The outline of our pool finally developed into a wonderful backyard oasis that is a thousand times better than anything we could have imagined! Ray was not flustered by the tortoise habitat on one side, the shed on the other, or my insane desire for these custom tiles—they are truly beautiful though! The pool itself was hugely important, but its surroundings need to be right and that is where Ray really delivers the complete package—yard design. Dex’s home (our tortoise) blends with the pool, the deck and relaxing spaces and the shed looks like it was always meant to be there. But my personal favorite is the “zero gravity” swing. I am on it nearly every day, winter and summer and the view from it is so beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. Thanks, Ray. You designed our group of “wants” into more than we could have imagined. You were honest, on time, polite and patient with this novice couple. We would recommend your services to anyone who wants that perfect pool environment."
