We stayed five nights half board, all the food is very good, cooked to perfection. Five course evening meal was more than we could eat. Breakfast are traditional meats, cheeses, cereals etc. But also eggs cooked any way you like with anything you want. Our room, 205, was very spacious and immaculately clean. I cannot praise the staff enough they... More

We have stayed at Hotel La Ginabelle twice. Once in winter for skiing and once in summer for hiking - both visits were lovely. We enjoyed the indoor-outdoor pool with our children and found the food in the dining room tasty. My only note would be that the rooms look as though they haven't been updated in 30 years. A...

The hotel is beautiful and our rooms were quite large, especially for Europe. I must say, we never felt very welcome at the hotel.
