well the hotel does look fantastic and is fantastic but the beds couldnt walk after a night sleep and i could sleep on a park bench. the food was the worst i have ever had ordered chicken it was freezing cold as was the potato the chicken was a wing with a few feathers on because there was no chicken on. as was the other people with me there's was also freezing there was only six people in restaurant .and yes i did get my money back and as for the breakfast great as long as you dont touch any thing that has been cooked they should make the chef eat the bacon and sausages of which i wouldnt even try i wish i had taken photos. alough the staff on reception couldn't have been nicer the only saving grace
We enjoyed a lot our stay in this hotel. Pros: nice rooms, very good public lounges and excellent breakfast. Cons: swimming pool a bit coldish and transport to ski slopes a bit slow (should have more minivans). But overall excellent stay and corteous and kind staff.
very clean & comfortable, good size rooms, breakfast great, service including shuttle van to & from ski slopes was also brilliant. Definitely recommended! Didn't use the pool or steam rooms, but they looked very good.
Great location - a two minute walk from Formigal's bars, restaurants and shops. The hotel had a really spacious feel, with decent sized rooms and bedrooms. We stayed on a half-board basis and the food was excellent, especially the breakfast which offered lots of ways to fuel up for a day's skiing. Dinner was good too, with vegetarian options available on request. Some evenings, we just stayed in the bar instead of going out to other bars in the village - they do a mean gun and tonic! Most staff spoke English and were very helpful. There was a real family-friendly vibe with activities and a dedicated play area for children. There is a swimming pool with a spa area, but it was tiny, so didn't bother with it. One of the nice touches was the shuttle bus to the piste at Sextas. Overall impression - would definitely go again.
Although the rooms were a little bit older than expected for a 4****, they were big and comfortable. The breakfast was extraordinary: quantity, quality, excepcional! Only 2 cons: the windows shutter can be very loud when its windy as they keep slamming, and the wifi connection is doesn't work very well at the 4th floor.
Nice and beautiful surroundings for a hotel definitely oriented to families. Nice fittings as well with swimming pool, sauna, hammam, fitness and massage rooms, plus bar & lounge area, separate from the restaurant. This hotel's interior design is carefully done to let a constant mountain concept in mind. Rooms are fine and breakfast is great, with a huge choice of everything! Note that light meals are also offered and separate from "normal" ones, for breakfast. Attentive and nice staff, but hardly speaking everything but English or French, especially in the restaurant. You can easily manage to speak foreign languages wit some other nice staff on the other hand. There also are great ski facilities, i.e. free and regular shuttle on demand plus free ski rooms, which avoid any difficulty about the hotel's location. The biggest disadvantage would definitely be the bad soundproofing of the sleeping area, too noisy because of children, bathrooms, etc.
We've been there at the end of the Ski season. Rooms are pretty old but big and well furnished. Lobby and Dining room fantastic with plenty of space and high quality ambient. Breakfast was awesome, with quantity and quality. Exceptional service at Front Desk and very well prepared for Ski. Good spa and Gym. Very good transportation service to the slopes. Summarising, a very good choice.
Spent 4 nights here with my two teenagers for a quick, late season ski trip to Formigal. The hotel is a lovely mix of modern (bedrooms & bathrooms) and traditional (public rooms). Our family room was a respectable size and very comfortable, although the views from the two windows were very disappointing, being of the side of another wing of the hotel! The staff in general were welcoming and professional, although the clearly overworked chambermaid was none too happy with us when she decided to make up our room at 2.30pm one afternoon, half an hour after we had returned to the hotel and were showering ourselves. The star of the hotel, though was undoubtedly Javi, the excellent Bar and Restaurant manager. Nothing was too much trouble for him and the service he gave us at dinner was both friendly and highly professional. We had half-board, which consisted of a wonderful buffet breakfast, and three course dinner in the very pleasant hotel dining room. Whilst we couldn't fault the quality of the dinners, the three choices of main course were rather "pretentious"; clearly perceived quality (with an inflated price to match) rather than quantity is the motto of the kitchen. For skiing, the hotel ranks very highly indeed. The complimentary mini-bus service to the slopes and back each day is wonderful; we never once had to wait to be taken in a morning, and the very friendly driver was always there waiting for us when the slopes closed. That said, we went late in the season when there were barely any other guests in the hotel so that might change in busier periods. The ski locker room is located a couple of steps from the pick-up/drop-off point so couldn't be easier either. Overall a very pleasant stay indeed.
I went with my son for two nights. It was the third time we stayed here and the last. Rooms were very hot and loud. Every person above and below were heard at all hours of the day. Children were running around and unsupervised while their parents were in the bar. Staff tried to calm the children down after complaints from spa but there was little they could do. My biggest complaint was the soundproofing. Will not go back.
We stayed for one night enroute to Spain but I'd stayed a few years before. It seemed the hotel was short of staff although having said that they did a great job of managing everything. The room was well up to standard. Comfortable, clean, nice size and well-equipped. No tea or coffee making facilities but this is usual in France and Spain. There was a well-stocked mini-bar. The receptionist was very welcoming and helpful. However, when we went to the bar to get a pre-dinner drink it was an age before any staff appeared or we could find any (we were also the only people in the bar!). Finally we were served and then went for dinner where there were around 30 diners being served by the bar person and one other. They were very polite and cheerful but clearly run off their feet. The menu was very limited and the food certainly wasn't four star - although quite edible - portions were very small and some of the dishes weren't piping hot as I like them to be when they're served. The breakfast was better but we were very much left to it as there were no staff to be seen! There was an error on our bill when we checked out but this was corrected without fuss. We would stay again just to see if it returned to its previous glory of my first trip. Exceptional setting.
