Have a package for the El C, looks like a terrific place. BUT, my first glance steered me to the LaConcha because of their pools and beach. The two places are 180 degrees different, and there are good points to both. Here's a question: The El C lists the La C as its sister property for the purposes of using their pools..no charge, except for the fare to get there(by cab, bus, whatever).
So in order(...this is just for my wife and me and we're late 50s, but we're very active) Would you stay at the El C and just use the little plunge pool they have, do everything else and be happy with it? Would you switch to the La C? Is getting TO the La C from the El C a pain in the butt? I can't imagine not being able to run up to a room, but I'm sure the facilities at the La C pool are very nice,enabling us to change, etc. What do you think? On the surface, the LaC looks like any number of places we've already stayed..in South Beach and elsewhere. Having said that, I'm afraid we'll be mad we stayed at a place that only has a "plunge pool." Help. Too many questions, so little time..
