Last minute booked through CRYSTAL ski holidays, yes the building is a fair hike up through the village and yes some things could be called basic but staff sooooo friendly, all beds in the apartment, not a futon as expected - bonus ! Good fast food from 7 in the evening for 5 euros...with a drink included, filling and convenient.
Spar shop is closest, if not cheapest with a good range and again friendly staff, if you're eating in, and there's an array of restaurants, tapas, pizza, even burger king if you call that a restaurant and more choice down towards the centre of Pas de la Casa.
Access to slopes and main lower chair lifts is just along the street with lockers if you really cant carry skis that far but Manzano lockers are heated, lockable and FREE !
Some reviews mentioned noisy and this was worrying but the apartment complex cant be blamed for noisy holidaymakers returning from the nightlife at silly o'clock and after all, they are on holiday. Rough with the smooth and minor factor, although we were off season.
Special mention for Crystal, especially rep Alex for their contribution to a great holiday skiing the whole Gran Valira and whilst the MANZANO isnt for those who want ski to door four star hotels its recommended for those for whom the skiing is the prime objective.
