Future tense vs Conditional tense

"Te recomiendo el hotel Urban, donde podrás disfrutar su terraza en la azotea, su piscina abierta en verano y una exposición permanente de arte en el interior. Además, podrías hacer deporte en su gimnasio exclusivo y degustarías platos en su restaurante con estrella Michelín."


In the answer, the first sentence is future tense, but the second sentence is conditional tense?  What is going on?  Why are not both these sentences either future or conditional?

Hola Jerald

In the first sentence that is using the future in the Spanish translation you have a "lit.note" saying:  lit: "where you will be able to enjoy", so that you translate using the future tense following the lit. note. Then the text continues using the conditional (as other things you could do/would do in the hotel) - both translations there are literal so it doesn't need any hint. 

I hope it clarified it.

Saludos cordiales
