I've stayed at the Nordic 4 or 5 times now and will definitely return. The hotel staff are friendly enough although sometimes you have to go looking for someone to serve you at the bar for lunch and/or drinks. But really can't complain as we were given 2, yes 2, complimentary bottles of bubbly during our 7 night stay (really not sure why, as we don't speak Catalan, Spanish or French!). As I've said before there is nothing to do in El Tarter but to tire yourself out skiing, which this location allows for brilliantly. Big plus - the whole hotel is now SMOKE FREE - this previously put many people off. In the evening we ventured out to Dylans bar for happy hour between 5.30pm and 6.30pm (15 min walk, albeit it involves a rather large hill). Returned for food in the hotel and then had a few drinks in the bar - no late nights were had, as really the entertainment is laughable (literally - out loud.. ). I tried the pool and sauna etc once previously - nothing to write home about and haven't been back. This trip I also noted the bowling alley was open and was filling up with kids (great - keeps them out of the bar area). All in all if you're not a keen skier (no matter your ability) and you like lively apres ski then don't stay here. Otherwise I love it - rooms are comfortable, clean and serviced every day, fabulous big telly (limited English speaking programs - but great for watching your ski videos); food is okay, everything is a bit of a surprise as nothing is labelled but I'd no problems with it. All in all great hotel.
