Everything at this hotel is great!! EXCEPT the food. After reading other reviews regarding the food served I thought people were just being 'picky'. But they are all right. There is absolutely no variety. Its all the stuff you can make at home, easy, cheap ingredients. And we stayed for 1 week and no fish was served!! I love eating... More

Took my 12 year old daughter skiing for first time last week as a single parent. We both had an amazing time staying in this hotel. It was ideally located for ease of ski school and lifts. The hotel was clean, warm and welcoming and the half board food provision was more than adequate. The service in this hotel by... More

The Hotel Sportiv turned out to be a great choice - cosy, friendly and intimate, with a personal touch. The location is superb, with the plush heated boot room opening out into the super-efficient ski hire shop which in turn is attached to the Festkogelbahn, one of the main gondolas up the mountain. We could ski back either down a... More

we had a fantastic week with the kids, everyone, staff in the hotel, ski instructors and reps were really friendly and helpful. This is the most fun family friendly resort we have stayed at in 30 years of skiing. The outdoor pool in the Cristal Hotel, attached was a real bonus. Definitely try a après ski evening in the niederhutte... More

We have visited Obergurgl many times, this was our second ski week this season. We booked the Sportiv due to availability, we hadn't stayed there previously. Everything about the hotel was warm, friendly, welcoming and clean. Our room had double aspect windows facing onto the gondola and village. It was bigger than we have had in other hotels, at no...

Obergurgl itself is not really special in terms of architecture or entertainment. It is, however, at high altitude so there is always a high chance for good snow conditions. The location of this hotel is second to none. The ski and boot store is attached to the Scheiber ski shop which in turn is attached to the Festkogelbahn lift. This... More

We stayed at Hotel Sportiv at the end of February and found it very good value. The food was good and plentiful. Alessio, our waiter, was very amusing and attentive, always willing to have a chat or pass an opinion on any subject. The rooms were very comfortable although housekeeping might have been a little more rigorous. The use of... More

Having booked this hotel at short notice and checking some of the previous reviews concerning the food being served I was genuinely concerned that I would be eating out for most of my holiday week, how wrong was that view. Clearly the hotel management has made a considerable effort and has taken on board the previous complaints and views of... More

Having stayed at the Crystal a few years ago we thought we'd try it's cheaper cousin over the road and were not disappointed. Considering that the holiday cost less than half what it would have cost to go back to the posh side of the road we were pleasantly surprised by our stay. As others have mentioned previously, the choice... More
