stayed at the altapura for a long weekend in february. the location of the hotel directly on the slopes couldnt be any better, perfect snow conditions also helped. within the group we had 3 different room categories, all of which were excellent, spacious and comfortable with all modern apple technology expected from a new 5 star hotel. fabulous bathroom with separate walk in shower and bath, furnished with nice tiles and plentiful towels.
the hotel offers 3 restaurants, however we ate in the buffet style one for all our meals. the food was absolutely excellent, especially for a meat eater. lots of choice and reasonably priced wines. the cosy bar area, real fire and comfy chairs, cocktail of the day was also fantastic.
ski rental shop also directly adjacent to the lobby area made rental etc very straightforward.
the spa with indo / outdoor pool and a variety of hot and cold rooms was excellent relief after a hard days ski. only criticism was the outdoor pool was a little chilly, but after all its -15 outside!
special mention to all the staff, front of house / bar / restaurant / ski shop who all couldn't have been more helpful and friendlier. the manager appears to have recruited a young dynamic team who cant do enough for you.
only "fault" was no turn down service which i found odd for a hotel of this budget and standard.
will return and would have no hesitation to recommend to anyone.
