Just back from the hotel.
There is parking available for free in the streets, you can also park in the garage which costs 10,43 euro's per night.
The people at the reception don't speak English or French very well, Spanish is the language.
The rooms are big enough (for 2) and are decorated in a neutral style. The only thing is: you can't adjust the temperature. There is heating for the wintertime, but no airco or fan for summertime which makes the room very hot. Mine was 27°C. The only thing you could do is open the window. Yes, you can open the window !! Even if you are at the mountain side (so pay attention when you have children with you) ! Rooms 101 -> 104 have a view over the street(foundation) and cable car. Rooms 105 ->108 have the beautiful view you see in the brochure: over the valley. The restaurant is fine... Strange they don't take advantage over the beautiful view it must have as there are no windows at all and the decoration is of trees ?? The food is perfeft: lots of choice and always plenty of it.
You have to pay for the SPA. When you want to use the swimming pool you have to pay 3 euro's for a bathhad if you don't have one... No slippers ? Not allowed in... I think this should be free of charge. Same as the WIFI/internet... Only available (foc) in the reception area, not in the room.
The hotel organises walking tours. You can pick up a book in the tourist office with the walks available in the area. Very interesting (you can see the degree of difficulty, distance, etc.)
Seen the hotel is located on the opposite site of the village (halfway the mountain) you must go down it to go to the village of Canillo. There is a little walking way near the hotel that takes you down, bear in mind: it's very steap !
You can also drive down; there is a big parking next to the cable car (3 euros to park the whole day).
The public bus can take you everywhere for little money. Andorra La Velha has shops till you drop, but check the prices at home first so you can compare !
You can go up with the cable car but I think this is only for people with smaller chilcren as everything is created with small children in mind. (I think up to 12 yrs).
I did the 4x4 jeep tour ! This trip is really a must ! They take you up the mountains on the maintenance routes and not expensive at all !
