Thank you for going above and beyond to make our engagement weekend wonderful. We were treated and accommodated more than we could have hoped. We especially recognize Andrew (front desk), Carolyn (front desk), Paul (front desk), Grace (room service), and Jeffrey (Swiss Chalet) for all they did for us. More than anything, we appreciated their kindness and excitement toward our engagement! We only live 30 minutes from Vail, but we plan to make the Sonnenalp an annual getaway tradition!!

Planned many months for my big 60th birthday celebration at our favorite Caribbean island, Anguilla. Three weeks before, borders closed due to covid surge. Plan B, four days at the Sonnenalp with the family. Stayed in an amazing, two level, two bedroom suite with three balconies. The staff was amazingly accommodating and friendly, best spa and outdoor swimming pool area, fantastic massage. We have been here many times, and it is truly one our favorite hotels worldwide. We feel welcome here, and pampered, and so happy!

Delightful as always. Stefan is an excellent GM. I’m reluctant to submit a review because we would like to continue frequenting the hotel with a minimal crowd. We have 2 daughters who were born in Germany. We are partial to the people and the culture. Sonnenalp does fine work at reflecting both qualities. So, go ahead - discover this place. You will become a regular like us.

The hotel gave us a great room with a balcony and room size was perfect. It was a Jr. Suite. Housekeeping was on the spot with everything clean and accommodating the time we wanted the room cleaned. Felt very safe, room service was excellent, front desk and valet timely and personable. This is probably our third time here and was great. Had a massage and both massage therapist give us a great massage. Spa is very nice. Didn’t use the pool but have in the last. Kudos to the pool person who took the time to take a picture of my husband and me. Thanks for a great time, we’ll be back!
