San Alfonso has created a private world with activities for all family members to spend days full of enjoyment without ever leaving the resort. The characteristic pyramid design of the buildings provide each apartment with a view over the sea and a privileged orientation. Algarrobo's Large Beach extends for more than two kilometers, and the bay is full of sailboats. For fishing enthusiasts, the single-breaking-wave blue sea is ideal. The 2, 3, 4, and 5-bedroom apartments with large balconies incorporate avant-garde elements that deliver superior quality and incomparable comfort.

For sport lovers, there are sport schools offering training classes on sailing, kayak, scuba diving, swimming, ocean navigation, tennis, and paragliding. There's also an artificially-lit five-a-side soccer courts, volleyball courts, tennis courts, a statutory soccer field, and a gym with large windows that enjoy a stimulating overview of the lagoon. Children have play grounds and entertainment activities organized by child monitors, abd teenagers have an exclusive space destined for them - the Teen-Pub -, and also SubTerra discotheque, where music recitals and live shows are often featured.

The Beach Club with spa, a tempered beach under a crystal pyramid, open-air Jacuzzis, sauna, beauty parlor and gym; the exhibition and cultural activities room; the open-air amphitheater; the Spa; the supermarket, and the North Bay pub-restaurant with its own dock and a large terrace along the lagoon's coastline are also part of San Alfonso's facilities.

But the centerpiece of San Alfonso del Mar is the saltwater lagoon. San Alfonso holds the current Guinness record as the world’s largest crystalline water pool, with an extension of more than one kilometer in length, eight hectares and 250 million liters of water. Apart from its large size, the lagoon has another spectacular feature: its waters have the transparency and intense turquoise color of tropical seas. During summer months , the lagoon further maintains a pleasant temperature that borders 26ºC, nine degrees more than the nearby sea temperature. A giant 100-meters-long water chute is also located in this zone.

Directions to Hotel
San Alfonso is located at only 90 kilometers apart from Santiago in Algarrobo's northern sector, the closer beach spot to the eastern sector of the capital city. Arriving to this “private world” is faster and safer than ever, since the access routes have been substantially enhanced. One of the alternatives from Santiago is taking Highway 68 that runs between Santiago and Valparaiso – with double lane in all its course – and continuing to the highway that communicate Casablanca and Algarrobo. Then, it is possible to reach San Alfonso directly by the Aguas Marinas branch, without passing by Algarrobo's downtown, thereby avoiding traffic jams and delays, especially during summer. It is worth to mention that Costanera Norte and Vespucio Norte franchised expressways in Santiago allow anybody to reach Highway 68 non-stop in a matter of minutes.

Another alternative is taking Autopista del Sol and then continuing by the highway that joins all the seaside towns between Algarrobo and Santo Domingo. This highway runs parallel to the coastal route and makes possible to go from Algarrobo to San Antonio’s harbor in just 20 minutes.
