“Wonderful Pontresina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2009

We have been for the first time in Pontresina, at the Saratz.
The hotel is absolutely fantastic! It has so much to offer, with outdoor pool, beautiful park, many activities for children, mountain bikes for free, tennis court, pitching and putting green for golfers, indoor pool, sauna and much more.
Food is very good, in the restaurant and in the Pitschna restaurant. Breakfast is great.
I can only say one thing: "If you haven't been there, then you have to go".

Hotel Saratz serves a small convention center, provides easy access to great day hikes, and has upscale services/facilities.
Superior breakfast buffet in the morning and outstanding dinner in the evening, with hiking between; Hotel Saratz has it together.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Take a long day hike to the base of the glacier.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2007

The Saratz is a famous established hotel in the region, very old but with a tastefully designed contemporary new wing, with a fantastic spa and Hammam (which means some nudity, but very discrete). It's near St. Moritz and some of the well known ski resorts, but not near enough for the passionate skier who wants to spend all day skiing. It's a great place to stay if you want to relax for a few days and maybe ski once.

Our extended family, 15 persons, 7-guestrooms, stayed at the Saratz June 23rd for only 1-night on our two-week tour of Switzerland. I think we needed more time in Pontresina and St. Moritz, and more time at the Hotel Saratz. It's a very interesting hotel: old and new, traditional and contemporary. Great dining room, lobby bar, sitting rooms, terrific pool and spa, superb location in Pontresina, huge guest rooms and bathrooms, top notch quality furniture and fixtures. We liked everything about this hotel, and I look forward to another, longer, guest stay.
