Certainly the best ski hotel I have ever stayed in and probably one of the best hotels I've stayed in anywhere. Everything about the place was done to a high standard and the staff were all polite and efficient. The two main highlights for me were the food and the leisure facilities.
They must have chefs working 24/7 in order to prepare the quality and variety of food on offer in the extensive breakfast buffet and at dinner. Everything served to us was of a consistently excellent standard, and whilst we were mainly happy to eat from the dinner set menu, there was also an a la carte menu and healthy option menu, from which you could swap courses for no extra cost. We really came to look forward to every meal we had in the hotel restaurant.
The second highlight was the leisure facilities. After a hard day of skiing it was lovely to be able to come back and relax in the jacuzzi, swim outdoors with steam rising off the water and snow around the pool, ease the muscles in the sauna and steam room and then relax on the reclining chairs with a cup of herbal tea before dinner.
The location is good - a very short walk to the bottom of the nursery slopes where you can get on their drag lifts and have another short walk to join the main lift system, or you can make use of the hotel shuttle bus. The village centre of Selva is also only a short walk. If you are skiing, the ski room facilities include secure individual locker storage accessed by your room key card with heated boot racks so that your gear is safe and secure, and warm and ready to go the next day. Overall, really an excellent hotel that we have already booked to return to for the 2015 winter season.
