We were very pleasantly surprised by Magic La Massana, the hotel and rooms were very well-appointed, everything (except internet) worked well and was recently refurbished, the staff were extremely helpful & multilingual, going above and beyond the call to assist us with one or two issues. The hotel has a comprehensive buffet breakfast & dinner, making their half-board option extremely good value. The hotel is located steps away from the ski lift and there is a good ski rental place across the road and a supermarket next to the lift.
The only (major) complaint I had was with the Wifi- don't choose this hotel if you count on Internet access for business (as I unfortunately did). Due to (I assume) limited bandwidth, the internet at most times of the day is unbearably slow (even for simple tasks like email) or non-existent, the suggestion of the staff is to "be near the stairwell", so I spent late nights sitting on the stairs trying to coax a couple of kb of bandwidth to send/receive critical emails. Forget skype or anything more intensive. Unfortunately, there are not many other easily-available options for WiFi in La Massana, unless you want to take your laptop to the top of the ski lift (fast & free Wifi at the resort base- go figure!)More
