This might have been the best place I've ever stayed at. It was definitely worth going even in the wintertime but you can't do as much other than walk the beach and go in the hot tubs. The big pool is for boats only and only those who are owners can take the boats out in the summertime from what...

Our children were part of the planing for our trip to Chile and the first place they suggested to visit was San Alfonso del mar. The reason was to swim in this beautiful swimming pool which seems to be the biggest artificial lagoon or swimming pool in the world. We rented an apartment in the highest floor and the expectations...

we spent 3 days in San Alfonso del Mar and had a wonderful time with our 2 teenagers and our niece. The apartment was nice and clean and it had a beautiful view of the resort and beach. The beds were confortable and the kitchen well equipped. There were a few things that could be updated, but it did not...

I went to San Alfonso because my children were looking forward to seeing the biggest swimming pool in the world. The apartment was exquisite, clean, comfortable and beautiful, the view was breathtaking. We missed a good wifi though. The swimming pool was definitely big but we were disappointed because we weren't allowed to swim in it.

We rented a 3 bedroom apartment for a long weekend, on the 7th floor we had a great view and a lovely terrace for BBQ´s in the evening. The large pool is actually for sports, but each beach area has its own dip pool which was lovely and big enough for all. Im not sure if all apartments are the...

We enjoyed our visit there. The apartment was spacious and clean with great views. The pool is quite impressive and has some fun features, like the trampoline. The negatives were almost no restaurant options there, and there are some things, like using the kayaks, that only apartment owners can do. The indoor pool is very expensive, and the beach by...

I read the reviews only after booking the apartment and was a bit afraid if we would get what we had expected. And yes, we would. The apartment was just awesome (they have different owners so can't say about others). Right above the pool. The pool magnificent. It's truth that you can't swim in it but the other smaller pools...

The only thing to regret was the fact no one can go into the big salted water pool. We could only go into one of the little pools in one of the first buildings. Still doing kayak in the big one was AWESOME! The water is perfect for the hot summer sun. I recommend visiting the place.

It was a good experience because it is located in a beachside recommended to enjoy with your family and friends due to its quiet ambient that offers restaurants and nightlife too. Also, which it highlights this world's largest pool in San Alfonso del Mar Resort, awarded in the Guinness Book of records.

They have the biggest pool in the world but we weren't allowed to swim in it as the repairs had not been finished. So I was very disappointed. But still nice to see it. Keep in mind it's a good hour and half from the airport. The whole town is a ghost town till Mid December (and weekends in summer...

“I'd ask to see a picture of the room in the future. We had a ground floor room which I rather enjoyed the convenient access to the pool, but I would imagine higher floors would have stellar views of the ocean.”
