Hotel Magic Ski4.0 out of 5.0

We cannot fault the location of this hotel - ski lockers in the underground car park and a short set of stairs to the gondola. If we were rating it on location alone it would get top marks. The room is a decent size too and the hotel is welcoming and clean. There are, however, a few downsides which is why the rating is only 3/5. The buffet in the evening could be better. Labelling is a bit hit and miss which makes it awkward (especially if you have any dietary requirements/are vegetarian) to work out what the food is. The food is also a bit bland although there were some highlights (broccoli and Stilton soup one night and mushroom pancakes another). The salad bar is also pretty decent. The food generally has been luke warm to cold most nights. There is a microwave though so you can heat it up. Vegetarian options are not all that plentiful so be prepared for carb overload as you eat potatoes and pasta most nights. Breakfast is better. It would also be good to have a kettle/tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. We also know it is half board but nothing by way of drinks are supplied in the evening not even water or coffee.
We stayed here during our sky holidays in Andorra and the hotel location couldn't be better. The staff is nice and very helpful. The rooms are decent, but the mattresses aren't the best. We asked for an extra bed for our kid and it was horrible but we felt they did their best to help us. The food in the restaurant had a fair variety but not an amazing quality. It has a small spa area with a swimming pool and a Jacuzzi nice to relax after a skying. It also has a parking lot.
Perfect location, ski storage in the basement and only a climb up the stairs to the godola and off you go. Ski rental in the same building - and it's close to everything in village. Stayed in a room for three, where the third bed was a sofa bed that was ok if you're less than 180cm and not too heavy (perfect for a young teen). Condition of the hotel was fair, and the breakfast and dinner was good. GREAT staff - positive and service minded. Recommended place if your focus is skiing and you want a good place to stay with food that gives you the energy to keep going.
Last weekend was the first time we were sleeping in Magic Ski, but we had already had breakfast many times in their buffet. The matresses are amazing and everything looks great. The staff is very nice and the food is very good. However, I would have liked to have a king size bed not twins, as it's a 4* hotel.
We have just returned from a week away. Hotel was great. Next door to the gondola. Hotel has the back door which leads directly to the entrance. Very good ski lockers. Everything is very convinient. Rooms are great. Very clean and great size. Staff very friendly. Food was good, although hotel does not label the food they surve at the buffet, so sometimes it was hard to tell what the dish was, especially because I am a vegetarisur Drinks are very cheap and hotel has a nice lobby area, where you can relax in the evening with the rest of the party. Spa area is small, but enough for what you need after a day of skiing.
Thought I would start off with the positives excellent location next to the gondola, clean rooms, some friendly staff, then the not so positives hotel lobby in need of refurb, hotel spa not free as advertised in crystal ski local charge, also to find out that they actually reserve the spa pool area at peak times just when you have come down from the slopes to relax your muscles to a bunch of children. So spa complete waste of time. Also the hotel is used by European school activities so if you enjoy children running every where and the noise which comes with children which every mother can relate to please think twice, not so relaxing at all could go on but won't dwell and certainly won't revisit.
hotel is well located, rooms are clean and pretty big, due to replacement of light bulbs for economical ones with low amount of lumens both room and whole hotel seems to be very darm and gloomy, quality of service below standard for a 4star hotel - maybe this was Andora's standard - however we all expected better understanding, more smiling and friendness, the lack of visibility medium management level on board caused unacceptable level of quality for some staff members. At the end of strong areas: the location is Super Fine nonetheless Vallnord ski area is worse vs Granvallira, link from hotel to the lift very convenience, just short walk up from ski room, rich breakfast and dinner with a large choice of food, relatively cheap spirits and good wine. Area and hotel are worth seeing but it is not an offer for advanced skiers, According to the information obtained - March month is strongly recommended to visit vs Feb or Jan.
One week ski with my husband and two kids. Travelled here from Gatwick to Toulouse, it is a long transfer, 3.5 - 4 hours. The coach did do a half way toilet stop at a French café. Magic ski hotel is next to the gondola, the ski locker/boot room is on level -1, a 5 euro returnable deposit for a locker key,(get at reception), locker takes 4 skis, boots, helmets. Walk up some stairs and you are at Gondola entrance, perfect! buzzer to get back in with a camera or keycard swipe. ski hire shop next to gondola station, also perfect! they asked for 42 euro insurance, not necessary if you have your travel ski insurance, so decline! so back to hotel, we found it really good, rooms clean, two pull out beds from sofa for the kids make the room cramped, always the case when squeezing 4 into a room for 2. The food was good, lots of choice, self service so as much as you want, Plenty for me ( vegetarian ) but then I am not that fussy really, only comment would be that I missed out on some yummy looking cauliflower cheese because there was bacon on top. Such is life, my choice. We used the swimming pool ( dip pool, its small ), Jacuzzi ( normal size ), sauna and steam room ( good ). You have to pay, 3 euro an adult 1.5 euro a child, however it is a maximam of 27 euro for 2 adults and 2 kids for all week, so quite cheap really if you use it every day like we did. Don't forget your swim hats, you have to wear them! some mould and mildew spray is needed on the ceiling in a corner, to be expected in such a humid zone. The bar area has a pool table, pin ball machine and large table football which was fun. Finally we found the staff very nice and helpful, we would go back for sure, great week of skiing.
Just back from winter holiday in Andorra. We booked this hotel via Crystalski as four star hotel. I am sure that by some ranking this is four star hotel but from my personal experience I would say three. Hotel has perfect location for skiers but also for non-skiers: just 3 min walk to bus station to capital. Room was ok and for strange reason, whatever I put on the door, it was cleaned only once (beds), but bathroom was cleaned every day. We had half board, breakfast was ok, plenty of food, ok choice. Dinner was ok as well, meat, salads, desserts, small variety every evening. Staff in the restaurant were nice but rarely smiling apart from few people. Girls at the receptions were stars, nice, polite, always with smile, ready to help, not perfect English but there was no problem to understand. All in all, it was great value for money, nice seven days in this hotel and would recommend it to friends.
Booked our family ski holiday through Esquiades.com including lift passes, equipment rental, ski lessons and hotel based on their recommendations. Couldn't have been happier with every aspect. Perfectly located at the base of the lift, the hotel was warm, clean, friendly, family oriented and provided superb buffet style meals - all at great value. Well deserving of their 4 stars !!
