EL PRESIDENTE POOLS
El Presidente's five wonderful swimming-pools
El Presidente has five lovely swimming pools, including one that is scheduled to be a heated pool during the cooler months (although we have no control over this), as well as a large paddling pool for the younger visitors and that are all set amongst mature and beautiful sub-tropical gardens. With an average of 325 days of sunshine per year, thanks to the very special Marbella micro-climate, this is therefore a great place for family fun or restful contemplation during your wonderful holiday in El Presidente!
The Main Pool is extremely large and beautifully designed with a central island, as well as an adjacent enclosed shallow Children's Paddling Pool for the younger ones. Surrounding the pool are extensive grassed areas with colourful sub-tropical plants, together with palm and conifer trees for welcome shade! Please note that they re-opened last summer (see the new photos below) following a major refurbishment to comply with licensing regulations. Although the overall shape and island have remained, it is a legal requirement that there can no longer be sloping sides at the water's edge as they are deemed a safety hazard. Instead, there are now three elegant stairways with rails enabling easy access to the water.
Our MADROÑO and YOLANDA rental apartments overlook these wonderful pools, with the latter effectively opening to them from its private south-facing garden. Next to the entrance of MADROÑO is another beautiful pool, the Blue Pool that our KENT apartment opens directly to from its own south-facing private garden.
A short distance away is the Dolphins Heated Pool that is scheduled to be heated from autumn through to spring (although do note we cannot guarantee this as it is outside of our control), as well as the Old Heated Pool and the New Family Pool.
With so many to choose from it is hardly surprising that it is usually not a problem finding either a quiet place to relax or for that matter a sun lounger! In addition, with so many mature trees in El Presidente, there are plenty of places to shelter from the midday sun. Indeed all of the pools are surrounded by grass and beautiful sub-tropical plants and palms.
During the high season a lifeguard is on duty every day at each pool.
