Excellent!Extraordinary place! Private condominium in the 5th Region of Valparaiso in Chile. You have the world largest pool. Nice restaurants, good food, safe place for children. I recommend it. You can rent an apartment, there are from 1 b up to 4 b.

We booked a trip from their website where they said they had the greatest swimmingpool in the world, but I wonder if you can call it a swimmingpool when you are not allowed to swim in it. And that was the only one of the disapointing things. The staff was not very eager to help you, if you wanted something...

The building is not that new it could be renovated a bit to make it looks better. The administration things were really complicated and take a lot of time. The people who were in...

If you just want to see "the biggest pool on earth" or try to buy a day ticket or something like that - NOT ALLOWED. What the ....? I came from Austria just to see it - no chance. They just don't know how to deal with tourists. Too bad! Will no one recommend to go there.

I was there in October and it is a nice huge pool, but that's it. The apartments are overpriced and there was nobody anywhere. The pool is great but then, the beach that is right below is not for swimming or anything. There is a lot of waves and current, that's why the artificial lagoon is great. I think it...

“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.”
