The Sportiv is an older wing of the very good and very modern Crystal hotel. The Sportiv has access to the same first class spa facilities (and they really are very good - about five different saunas and steam rooms, and a great Finnish sauna and ability to run naked outside in the snow to cool off) and also gives access to the very good afternoon tea and cakes (really a very good mix of drinks and 'nibbles' that changes daily).
The Sportiv feels slightly out dated and downbeat by comparison with the Crystal, but the feeling is largely due to the very swanky feel of the Crystal itself. In reality the ski in/out, effectively 'on site' gondola, great spa, and general facilities of the hotel really are very good.
The hotel is one of the first you come across as you drive into Obergurgl, so there is a good 10 minute walk into the centre of town, but it's a nice walk, and you see most of the character of this pleasant ski town on the way through.
The barrel bar and curling rink were great attractions, and great fun, for us, and the Sportiv a good value, reasonable quality hotel with great facilities in a good location in a great ski town.
The skiing in Obergurgl is good and varied, and there are good fun tree lined runs for poor weather and visibility. Mountain huts were great, and the atmosphere of the tow good fun, especially at New Year.
We would happily go back to Obergurgl, and if we did I'd be very happy to stay at either the Crystal or the Sportiv.
