After reading the reviews of Puerta del Sol prior to booking, I arrived expecting very little and was pleasantly surprised. The Double North rooms were comfortable (albeit a little dated) and the views from the balcony were beautiful. We had two adjoining rooms which made staying with friends very easy.
There were several nice cafes/bars to relax in after a day on the hill, and there were plenty of ski shops as well as a mini market not far away to purchase necessities. The food was generally pretty good (only the odd disappointing meal all week) and with 3 restaurants and an excellent buffet to choose from for dinner, we didn't get tired of it. At times the service was a bit slow, but after travelling in other parts of Chile I realise that this is just part of the culture. We had access to the fitness centre where they gave each of us a free 30 min massage.
One significant drawback: no one at the hotel told us that we couldn't drink the tap water. There was no notice in the room and they did not supply complimentary bottled water. But when two members of our group became ill, they told us we shouldn't have been drinking it! Also there is no wifi in the rooms and the signal in the reception area was unreliable.
