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... More

Rooms are beautiful, with everything you could possibly need; the staff is excellent, really helpful, friendly and chatty. All rooms suites, deluxe and one bedroom apartments are decorated to a high standard and very clean. Will definitely return anytime.

If you are not from Chile don't expect to be able to get enough information from the resort staff before actually getting there. After calling the resort 3 times before booking, we were still totally surprised. The only thing that was as advertised was the view from our room which was beautiful. List of the things that were wrong with... More

We booked our apartment via their website, paid in full and arrived by public transport. On arrival security handed us our keys and mentioned that we should go to administration office. By the time we located it, the office was closed. We headed to our 2 bedroom apartment which was clean, with a amazing view over the pool. We noticed... More

We did not stay at the hotel but wanted to see the outdoor pool as it is the largest in the world. As other people have stated, the guards will not let you in through the gates, even if you say you want to use the toilet or the cafe (which we tried!). But, you can get around the back... More
