I stayed at this hotel on 3rd March 2013 for 1 week, booked via Direct Ski (great on-line tour operator and much cheaper than any other) with another couple. We really liked the hotel, good food nice rooms and although some of the staff were a tad grumpy we had read previous reviews and were not that surprised - it seems to be a common trait in Andorra though you CAN find some great customer service!
The only downside to the stay was the hugely expensive small bottles of water (they ran out of large ones) in the restaurant. We asked for tap water and were first told that it wasn't recommended (some of us had been happily drinking tap water in our rooms) and then when we asked why were there no warnings in the rooms about not drinking tap water in the bedrooms we were told that it was not restaurant policy to provide tap water. 4 euros 20 for a tiny bottle of water! Not impressed at all, particularly as in the shop down the road we bought a pack of 6 - 1.5 litre bottles for about 5 euros.
The skiing is really good in Andorra and I would suggest that if you fancy something different, give it a try, and if you choose Soldeu, I would strongly recommend this hotel, the location could not be better, there is a chair and a bubble right below the hotel. Just don't drink the water!
Lastly, there is a huge spa, shared by several hotels in the same group. It's good but not the best I have been to. We were allowed in free 1 day during our stay BUT we had to buy flip flops to get in at 12.50 Euros a pair (most expensive flip flops I have ever bought). So if you want to visit the spa, take your own flip flops. With the saving you make you will be able to splash out on almost a litre or water with dinner instead!
