Reviewed March 18, 2011

Good value for money, buffet style meals but a reasonable choice and friendly resturant staff.
Bar staff especially the lady from Argentina very polite, very helpful and always smiling.
Main lady on reception desk misserable and needed to try smling instead of growling all the time!
Family rooms very basic, no light bulbs in wall lights and school dormitory style furniture with nowhere to sit other than on the bed!
Bit of a trek back from town as it is all up hill. A hotel shuttle would be nice for the evenings.
Location fantastic for skiing with the chair lift right next to hotel.
Liked Arinsal as there are alternative free ski sites available. Would go again.

Didnt know what to expect when we booked this but when we arrived it was a nice surprise!
The room was clean and had what we needed including a fridge, TV, wardrobes, extra pillows and a balcony overlooking the slope that runs down the side of the hotel. Facilities were great, ski hire shop next door, free parking, free wifi in foyer area, right next to a 6 man chair lift that takes you to the main ski area and a blue run that brings you back to the hotel.
I will stay here again if ever in Andorra.

5 of us stayed here and really had a ball. the hotel staff could have been more friendly in the beginning but they got better! hotel is very clean and we really couldnt complain about the food choice. most nights the food was constantly replenished but one night the restaurant was quiet they didnt do this and the food went cold! that was the only bad night. Hotel is in a great location for skiing but not so great for night life. we loved the mornings grabbing our equipment and getting straight on the chairlift! this more than made up for the night time walk home up the hill! yes it was an easy 5 mins walk down into town and a tough 15 mins back up! the irish bar really do give you lifts home though! we got this three times which was great! the ski run beside the hotel is fab for bum boarding! just wait until the slopes close first!! night life was just right for our age group! irish bar was good crack and the friday disco in el cau was such good fun. we had afternoon ski lessons which worked well for us and our instructor was friendly and gave us the push we needed to improve loads by the end of the hol! would we go back? you couldnt beat arinsal in general for price but the slopes cover a small area which means your doing the same runs all the time if your a beginner and dont make it to pal. It did get icy but apparently its not been great snow anywhere this year so all in all it was great value and great fun for us!

If you want a posh hotel with all the trimmings then this hotel is not for you! If you want a hotel which serves good food, is warm, friendly, with a good bar and a chair lift then this place is ideal. Downsides to this hotel are that it's a 5 min walk to centre and 20 mins back when you have had a few! Also tv is all Spanish apart from BBC world news channel, which we endured the Egyptian crisis night and day!!!!!

I enjoyed a lot staying at the Crest. The hotel is very well located due to the 6-man chairlift in front of it. The food in the morning and at dinner was normal to a 3* hotel. The staff is composed by young people and they're all excellent. The rooms were nice and warm.
My favorite part in the hotel is the bar near the snow, wich is great for a beer after the snow.
I'd recommend it to anyone.

Never been ski-ing before, didn't know what to expect. Hotel is clean and modern, not the ritz but perfectly acceptable. Friendly helpfull staff. Typical continental breakfast's and good choice of evening meals. Help yourself eat as much as you like. New ski lift next door to hotel so easy access to slopes. Hotel has in it's basement a ski locker (ten euro refundable) but next time would book locker up on slope for ease. Bar and games room / PC internet. The only slightly downside is hotel is at the end of town at top of the hill. If wishing to go into town where most supermarkets & bars etc. are its a ten minute walk up/down a big hill with no paths. There are buses. Good maid service. Not being a party animal would recommend it and would go again. Me and my son found it good value for money.

Just got back from a weeks stay at the Crest Aparthotel, Arinsal Andorra.
14 of us in our party, mixed age group from 4-44, all good.
Really Clean and after a quick turn of the thermastat in our room, very warm.
As most people have said, basic, the Ritz it isn't, but clean, warm and tidy it is, and lets face it if you are in good company and having a great time, whats to moan about?
The chair lift outside was brilliant, having stayed in resorts where wev've had to hike a good 400 metres and then ski another 200 before getting anywhere!

The games room was great for the kids, although make sure that you have plenty of Euros in change!

The walk up the hill is quite hard work, especially with shopping, or young children, having done it twice, we got a taxi the third time, and was charged around 10.00 Euros for what felt like a 2 minute ride! (not cheep!) Still a good time had by all
