we rented an apartment on the last weekend of the "season". Totally unsure why it was the end of the season as gloriously hot and full of potential for several more weeks of holiday letting! The apartment was fine, views great, weather superb. The pool itself is an amazing structure. But it was really a boating lake and swimmers were... More

After reading the reviews, we decided not to stay but to make a day of it. The guards have advised us that you are no longer able to just visit to see/ use the pool. It was also closed on the day we visited (mid January 2015). You can't really see the pool, so if you are planning to visit... More

The apartment we rented wasn't clean. The beach seats were only assigned to the apts. and ours didn't have. The heated pool is only for owners as well as many other facilities. As for scenery, open pool areas, I would say beautiful and well kept.

We have booked via booking.com one night for 3 persons in San Alfonso del Mar (270 USD!!!). As we came, there were only 3 guards and nobody on reception. The guards didn't have any clue what to do with our reservation and could't reach by phone for long time nobody who could be competent. Finaly, after talking to a manager... More

I visited in November, way too early in the season. Pool was freezing cold and they still charged an access fee. Very limited options for dining and food in the area. All that being said, it is definitely the largest pool in the world.

Spent 3 days at San Alfonso at the end of March (low season). Owner of condo "failed" to tell us that all pools and restaurants are closed during weekdays! Warm pool also closed (at U$20/ person when open!) A scam in my opinion... Condo was ok. Dated and not very cleaned. Would have been better off at a hotel...

The pool itself is quite the sight--glad we got to see it once, but we don't have any urge to go back. We went in the offseason, so it was too cold to swim in the main pools (and since some of the water is pumped in from the ocean, it might be too cold year round!). There is an... More

Ok, so in full disclosure, I am a cold water distance swimmer....so this place was like a dream come true! Water was wonderfully cold, and they pump in salt water from the sea so it is not overly chlorinated. Frankly, it is an engineering miracle--you can't really wrap your head around how HUGE the pool is--it is really more of... More
