“Wonderful family hotel nothing was too much trouble”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

The Hotel Kandahar is where we took our skiing trip this year and the whole party ranging from 11 yrs to 60+ yrs had a fantastic weeks skiing. The accomodation is a good size and spotless , the position next to the slopes is ideal but most importanat of all is the friendliness and helpfulness of both the staff and the owners.Nothing is too much trouble,

There is a great selection of food as others have reported and when we return to this area will definitely be staying here again.

Hotel Kandahar proved to be a great choice for accomodation in Pas De La Casa. The exit from the basement ski locker room is within around 50 metres of four ski lifts offering access to the huge Grandvalira ski area. If you need to hire or buy ski equipment, there is also a shop within the same building.
Although our triple room was a little on the small side, there was ample storage and a large bathroom with plenty of hot water. We also had a balcony offering a view across the lifts. Just a slight niggle about the fact that noise can carry around the hotel in the evening, but given the skiing, the fresh air and the wine, we didnt have too much trouble sleeping. Pas De La Casa shops are only a 2 minute walk and there are plenty of nearby bars and restaurants.
I would highly recommend booking on a half board basis as the food at breakfast and dinner is excellent, and this works out as a very good deal price-wise. Lots of choice from a buffet for appetizers, and each night a choce of two or three main courses. Also a fairly reasonable wine list, and an excellent dessert 'buffet'.
Service at all times was friendly and welcoming. If you are driving to Hotel Kandahar, you will need to drop off passengers and bags fairly quickly (up to around 10 mins) to avoid the attention of the traffic wardens, but can then park in a huge multi-storey car park at the top end of town, around a 5 to 10 minute walk from the hotel. if you are driving to Andorra in winter, do take snow chains with you, most of the roads within Pas De La Casa are on a gradient, and rhe road from France is a long and winding climb.

Room Tip: Some rooms offer a balcony overlooking the ski lifts. Also, for larger groups, some rooms can be boo...

Hotel Kandahar has great location, perfect for skiing in the great slopes of Pas de la Casa and Grandvalira, the rooms are comfortable, the quadrupel rooms are perfect with children, the services for skiiers are all you would need , but I would like to highligh two things:
Food is gorgeous and specially, the absolute best of this hotel is that they make you feel like home, the way you are treated by all the members of the personnel, the atmosphere at the bar, the kids have activities and a nice area to play while you relax. And I insist, food is gorgeous.

Had a room with a double bed and 2 bunks for 4 adults for Euro 212.80 with breakfast for full 3 nights. Excellent room. Food ok. Just tried booking for Jan 09 and told same 4 adults and same room 220 Euros per night. Is it worth that much? I say not...works out even pricier if all adults have individual beds...but there you go. I wouldnt recommend this to my best mate coz he's too tight to pay this kinda money!
