Think it depends on numbers. We have 4 villas, only 2 occupied all year so no problem

These are the rules published by the Ministry of Health and issued by the Governor of Antalya.
Sorry it's a bit long.

"POOLS  COVID-19 mainly spreads by airborne and contact transmission. Infecting of people through pool water by the virus causing COVID-19 has not be detected yet. However, pools pose an infecting risk as these are places where many people can gather at the same time. For this reason, social distance must be strictly observed.  Rules regarding COVID-19 must be clearly posted in these areas.  Regulations on Health Requirements and Principles Applicable to Swimming Pools must be observed in indoor and outdoor pools. Parameters must be measured twice a day and posted on the information board and also recorded to be further presented if requested.  At least one staff attendant responsible for COVID-19 issues must be present in the pool area in pools of residential complexes.  Routine disinfection of pools must be performed regularly and duly.  People with complaints about fever higher than 38 °C, cough, respiratory distress are not allowed to enter the pool area of the complex.  The pool area capacity is set as 1 person per 4 square meters including staff.  Number of people inside the pool is limited to 1 person per 8 square meters.  Sun beds must be arrayed with a social distance of at least 1,5 meters in between and users must be warned about this arrangement.  Mattresses made of cloth are not allowed on the sun beds. These pool furniture and accessories can be disinfected with liquid bleach containing 1/100 sodium hypochlorite solution.  People should be encouraged to use their personal towers, beach wear etc. People should be informed that these textile products should be washed at minimum 60 °C.  Users must take a shower and use hand sanitizer before entering the pool. Feet must be disinfected in feet washing pools, if any, otherwise disinfection mats should be bought from pool service companies.  Avoid touching face, eyes or mouth after touching any plastic or metal surfaces in these areas. Hands must be washed for 20 seconds with soap and water for hand hygiene. In case water and soap are not available, 70% alcohol hand sanitizer must be used.  People must avoid staying in the pool for too long as it will increase COVID-19 contact risk, and should be warned in this regard.  Babies and children, who have not completed their potty-training and use diapers, are not allowed in the pool because COVID-19 infection may involve such symptoms as diarrhoea.  Children are allowed in the pool area only accompanied by their parents as children may not be able to keep social distance by themselves when using the pool.  Any group training or games in pools are forbidden.
 General cleaning of these areas must be performed daily with water and detergents. Such methods as spraying chemicals or using water under high pressure should be avoided. Disposable cleaning tissues must be used in these areas.  Social distance must be kept also in showers, toilets and similar places in these areas."
