Heated balconies with hot tubs and even the toilet seat is heated. Has a ski room with everthing you need and is a 40 second ski out the front...

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and it was the most incredible experience of the whole trip. I was so relaxed within half an hour of arriving and stayed that way until we left.

This hotel is a different "league" than any other in Sierra Nevada. If a person/family enjoy luxury and exclusivity, this is the place to go. It's a nice 5 star hotel, ideal for skiing and relaxing in the room, spa and hotel facilities. We recomend.

An amazingly beautiful hotel in a perfect spot for skiing Sierra Nevada. Is expensive though, can't go there too often! Staff were of the highest possible standard. Everything you need is on hand. Rooms a bit too small but with a heated pool, the slopes, games rooms, spa you don't need to be in the room too often.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Lodge is situated in Monachil, in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Ski Resort, the most southerly Ski Resort in Europe. Its location gives guests direct access to the Maribel and Aguila slopes, so you can step off the terrace, click on your skis and hit the pistes. This exclusive hotel, a member of the globally recognised Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ (SLH), will officially re-open in December. Sierra Nevada regulars will affectionately recognise the ski retreat’s Alpine style building constructed from seasoned Finnish timber that blends seamlessly with its mountainous setting. ... more   less
