We have a 2-year-old daughter, and this was our first real break since her birth. Our main aim on the holiday was to have a really good family time without any stress, but we also hoped to do some skiing.
The hotel certainly lived up to our hopes. It's perfect for kids up to the age of 4 (I noticed that a couple of older children seemed a little restless). In the winter 3 of the pools are in use - 2 indoor and 1 outdoor. The indoor pools were a delight: very warm and safe, with toys and slides. There's a cinema with carpeted steps and cushions to lounge on (when it's quiet you can borrow DVDs to play on the big screen), a softplay area, a play kitchen, a creche, a small park, carts, trikes and a ski slope (although we were too late in the season for this). The hotel also organises excursions like tractor rides and tobogganing. All this for only 30 families. We went at the end of the ski season, so mid-week there were very few people, so we pretty much had the run of the place.
Holidaying at Ginas gave our daughter plenty of things to do on the doorstep, and gave us heaps of rest and a fair amount of skiing (unfortunately she wouldn't go into the creche, however lovely the carers were). Almost every window in the place had fab views of mountains. The meals in the restaurant were relaxing, and the food was great for all of us (I'm veggie). Our daughter learned to sit at table for more than 5 minutes, and lost her fear of swimming pools.
We'll definitely go again, but maybe try to persuade some friends with small children to join us next time.
