San Alfonso del Mar

Camino Mirasol 866, Algarrobo, Valparaíso, Chile

If you want to swim in the sea but aren't keen to brave the polar temperatures of Chilean waters, try this set of imposing apartment buildings on Algarrobo's northern edge with its eight-hectare, 1,000-meter, turquoise-blue seawater pool that stretches the length of the complex. The pool attracts swimmers, kayakers, and even yachters. As if that weren't enough, there are another 11 outdoor pools, each with artificial beaches, and two heated indoor pools. The spacious suites, all with terraces overlooking the ocean, sleep up to 11, and guests also have access to their own spa, supermarket, and ice cream parlor, so there is plenty to keep everyone occupied without having to go far.
