Alta is far from the city, and that is for sure. Thus, this is "the" place if you want to stay away from the noisy city life.
The room: We were given room 12 upon arrival. The room was dark and the bathroom smelled awful. We asked to be transferred and we were given another room right away. Our room was nice and spacious compared to room 12. The lighting isn't that good as they use orange bulbs. The bed made some squeky noise when we do our thing. The airconditioning unit is also noisy but it served its purpose well. Very well.
The shutte service: I see a lot of reviews about the shuttle service which is actually a metered taxi, so I won't dwell much of that.
The restaurant: They serve various food during breakfast. Food served was OK but not top of the line. What upsets us was there were times when we ordered something from their menu and we we informed that they can't serve it because they don't have the ingredients. A very particular example was the banana split. The taste of the food during other meals of the day was ok, only that they serve your food after 30 to 45 minutes. They serve the drinks first and we were able to consume all our drinks and our food were not available still.
The staff: They are all very friendly and warm. They always greet and serve you with a smile.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Alta. It was a good place to stay because we were not after going out much. We went there to have a peaceful and quiet time.
