“Great Hotel for a Ski Holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Very friendly hotel right next to the Canillo gondola. Everything is provided to make skiing easy - lockers in the basement for equipment and racks to dry boots. Food was good - a simple but fine buffet breakfast and the evening meal is brought by waiter from a good varied menu. Pretty good food as well. Staff are very helpful and the lounge area is nice but not too busy in the evenings. Canillo is a quiet resort but good for families and those who don't want to go around lots of bars apres ski. Will return. And the ski runs back down to the Canillo gondola are great - wish we'd spent a bit more time here rather than travelling over to the many other Grandvalaria ski areas.

The hotel is very reasonable priced, the food is fantastic, far better than expected. The hotel is everything you could ask for. It is about 50 metres from the gondola as advertised. They provide ski lockers and a boot room. The staff are friendly and helpful. We arrived late as our ferry was delayed in the storms so we arrived at 2.30am, the staff waited up to help us, and gave us a meal, they were fantastic. If we go to Andorra again, we will definitely stay here. For a small charge they also provide inside garage parking. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed a weeks skiing in Andorra. The Hotel Bonavida is very comfortable and relaxing for a break for my family including 2 young boys. The staff are very friendly and service is excellent.
Definitely will try to return in Feb 2015

We stayed at the Bonavida for 2 nights (only. what a shame...) with our 2 kids + their spouses + 3 grandkids.
The hotel is Located in the center of Canillo "village" - high on the hilly central road (all the state of Andorra is 1 long streched built area resting on the base of 1 valley..).
The Bonavida is very close and has a very easy access to the cableto the ski area (good one!) which was our target of the journey. They will help you in renting ski equipment at the attached friendly sport shop (and receive a discount)
We loved the hotel and it's friendly team members who give a house feeling, although it is not a top-modern facility... Monse - the owner of the place - she is great and will try her best to make you enjoy the place and make your vacation spent wisely.
You need to reserve a parking place at the hotel parking, as there is almost no place to park otherwise, and persumably you are driving here - no other effecient way to make it.
The price is based on Half-board. Dinner is very tasty, beautiful plates.
Highly recommended for families with young kids (we met a few).
Excellent choise

This was my third stay at the Bonavida having first stayed in 2002. We stayed for 4 nights. The hotel is in a fantastic location right next to the ski lift at Canillio, next to local restaurants, bars and a small supermarket. With parking beneath the hotel for a small charge it makes it a really easy place to stay.
We booked two rooms, a double and a triple. The rooms are basic, but warm clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are full allowing you to have a nice bath in the evening just needed after a days skiing. The bathrooms are starting to show their age, but are kept clean so it isn't really a problem. The triple room was on the small side as no real space for luggage, so maybe consider a different configuration if three people are staying.
Breakfast was great - an excellent selection of all the things you'd expect from a continental breakfast.
He staff were so friendly and helpful, including helping us with travel problems (the road from France was closed due to bad weather) and arranging ski hire.
We will be back
(one note there are no kettles in the room so take a travel one!)

This was a lovely hotel with friendly staff, nice breakfasts, a decent and well cleaned room, great ski facilities and 1 minute from the ski lift. You couldn't expect anything else for the price. I would recommend it.

I booked this hotel a day before our trip and in peak season, so I was very doubtful! I could not have been more wrong. This hotel is lovely, clean, the staff is very friendly and the dinner in the hotel restaurant is very good value for money. It´s also perfectly located at 50m from the telecabina of Canillo, from where you can get to El Tarter by car in 5 minutes, or even ski over if your skiing is up to it and leave the car in the hotel garage.

Because the hotel is close to a main road (but not on it), if you like to sleep with the window open,you may wish to ask for a room at the back. In fact our only misgiving was that our room was located at the front of the hotel, and at night and early morning noise due to traffic came in through the open windows. As with most hotels in the Pyrenees, the room was quite overheated and the air was dry, so the open window was a necessity.
