Excelente price/quality balance. Just in front of funicular. Very good restaurant dinner buffet and breakfast. Available lockers for ski material. Health club with jacuzzi, sauna, swimming pull. Very nice hotel crew.
We stayed here with our ski club for one week mid march. The skiing was spring type with warm weather, some fog, and icy conditions in the morning. The hotel is very good and located directly across from the lifts. The room was clean and quiet. There is some noise from the hallway. We were on the back of the hotel. The staff was great. Friendly and helpful. The bar scene was exceptional - fun and well frequented. The staff in the bar was way above average. The food was varied and well prepared. The only criticism was the coffee in the cafeteria was from a machine and for my tastes it was not good. I resorted to getting hot water and adding powdered decaf coffee with hot milk. The hotel has a ski shop next to the lobby.
The worst things about this hotel are that the walls are very thin so it can be noisy and that there are no boot dryers in the ski locker room. The best thing is the restaurant, which offers a huge selection of delicious Spanish food at breakfast and dinner. The choices change daily and it was difficult to decide between so many appetising options. We chose the ‘recommended’ red wine - the Celeste Crianza at 14.50 euros and were not disappointed. Our waiter all week, Gerard, deserves a special mention for his constant hard work and friendliness. The drinks in the bar were very good too, particularly the G&Ts. Dinner is generally at 8pm which we found rather late after a day’s skiing. However, as we were a group of 30 the hotel changed the opening time to 7.30pm for the week we were there; which we much appreciated.
This hotel was the best. Directly across from the gondola at Baqueira. We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel each day. Meals were buffet style and very, very good. We took a tour of the surrounding villages that was offered by the hotel at no charge. It was great! The pool and other amenities were also great. A ski locker was provided. Rooms were simple,clean European style with plenty of hot water! Would definitely return!
Second visit to this hotel as part of a tour operator package. Ideally located opposite the main ski lift area. Although we arrived late (around 9pm ), due to a mix up at the airport, this was no problem for the hotel who quickly booked us in to our rooms, directed us to the restauraunt, and served us a three course meal with free water or the option to choose from a comprehensive wine menu. (unlike a chalet). The owner, manager , and staff were polite and courtious at all times. Skis/boards were stored in separate cages with keys specific to each room in a segregated area near to reception. Unfortunately there were no boot driers and the rooms were thermostatically controlled with no radiators so I had to use the hair dryer in the bathroom to dry off gloves/boots. There is a small shop off the main reception selling a wide range of ski gear. Room had two separate single beds pushed together. Beds were very comfortable with plenty of sheets to adjust the sleeping temperature during the night. (No duvet thankfully!) Beds changed daily, bathroom cleaned daily. Amenities - very nice, clean swimming pool at a constant depth of 5 feet with a warm jacuzzi and showers nearby. Various massages available depending on price paid ( see card in room). Dinner changed from a set menu after day 3 , to a la carte for the rest of the week - excellent idea which worked a treat with our 'snoworks' party giving a much wider choice . Breakfast was the same with fresh fried eggs /ommlette available too. I would highly recommend this hotel for groups, families, and solo travellers. Reason for 4 stars not 5? - no boot driers and one shower not working next to the pool. Nice bar.Undergound car parking available.
We were a group of 44 skiers. Our arrival at Tuc Blanc was delayed because of storms in Europe. When we finally arrived, the hotel had a special lunch prepared for our travel-weary group and later that evening, a welcome reception cocktail party. The rooms at Tuc Blanc are small but adequately furnished. Bathrooms were very clean and may have been updated recently. The hotel has a well maintained indoor pool and hot (not so very) tub. Two pubs, a restaurant, large lounge area, ski lockers. Meals were over-the-top with selections to satisfy every taste. Gluten free bread was available every day, plenty of food for vegetarians. The hotel bar had a tapas menu every afternoon. The gondola is just across the street and up a couple of flights of stairs. Tuc Blanc's own ski guide (Dennis) is available to take groups out every day for a tour of the mountain. Don't miss this!! Dennis is an AMAZING skier, loads of fun and he covers LOTS of ground as you ski with him. No doubt that we'd stay there during a return trip. One thing, though. I did leave a couple of items behind and wrote to ask if they could be sent to me. As yet, neither of my two emails have been answered.
Having read a recent review of Hotel Tuc Blanc I can't help wondering if we have been to the same place. I could not fault the Hotel Tuc Blanc in Baqueira Berets which I visited at the end of January. The hotel was as convenient as it was possible to the main gondola, ok there were steps but we were on a skiing holiday in the mountains after all. The rooms were comfortable and well equiped, there was even a kettle and tea making facilities which is not usual in continental hotels. The food was excellent, the breakfast was huge with all kinds of hot and cold choices and you could eat as much as you liked. The evening meal was something else, with four courses which included various meat and fish, there were wonderful regional dishes to choose from as well as international dishes which are offered in most restaurants. The choice was so interesting that I must admit that the allegedly offensive pasta never appeared on my horizon. To top it all the staff were so friendly, attentive and welcoming, no their English was not fluent but it was miles better than my clumsy attempts at Spanish and hey, we were on holiday in Spain not in a remote corner of the British Empire at the beginning of the last century and most of the clientelle were from Spain. I don't really want to broadcast too loudly how good the hotel was and what a wonderful resort Baqueira is just incase I spoil the magic and when I go back next year things will have changed.
I will keep this brief. When staying in a five star resort, which baquiera beret claims to be, you expect a certain level of service. Tuc Blanc restaurant does not fulfil this. They should be thoroughly ashamed of the food they serve up. How hard is it to get pasta right? Clearly very hard in their case. Pasta bolognaise - with pasta so hard and chewy it was like it had been nuked and carbonara that the sauce has no flavour, was funnier than milk if that is even possible and barely cooked bacon. Add this to rude service and dismissive staff, then that is the experience u are likely to have.
we have stayed at this hotel twice now.Good amenities and good food,comfortable hotel rooms,nice bathrooms. Last year I on returning home,I could not find a brand new pair of prescription sun specs and wondered if I had left them in the hotel but I never got round to contacting them. SO at the hotel this time I enquired on the off chance they still had them and to my delight they had found them and a year after loosing them I got them back! I was impressed by the honesty of the staff in keeping them safe for so long - very good.
This hotel is right opposite the ski lift - so a near ski in/out experience. The food is excellent - some evenings a set menu (with options per course) and others a buffet. The food changed daily and was full of local delicacies - which we enjoyed greatly. There are some 'international' dishes for the unadventurous but I can't comment on those as we eschewed them in favour of the local cuisine. There is a ski rental/retail store in the hotel with a good selection of quality equipment for rent or purchase. So, very convenient indeed. The rooms are on the smaller side and basic but comfortable and fully equipped with everything a skier needs; a comfy bed, powerful shower and ample storage. The pool, jacuzzi and spa are well laid out and a good way to relax after a day on the slopes. The hotel bar offers a range of local and international brands and is welcoming. The staff are welcoming and friendly - even if there is the occasional issue with language. We compromised by speaking French as most of us didn't speak Spanish and some of the staff couldn't speak much English (but their French was fine). That said, we really liked that this was a genuine Spanish resort and wasn't a 'little England' type experience. Overall, highly recommended.
