Fellow traveller. At 2000 metres high, you would expect it to be chilly outside and rather nice to come into a warm hotel after a days skiing. However to come into a hotel where you can hardly breathe due to the intolerent heat, dryness of air that your throat sticks, eyes water and lips shrivell and thats before you step into your own room! My wife and I have just returned from The Melia Sierra Nevada for a 3 night stay. We were supposed to ski for the 3 days but we both became so ill after the first night in "The Sauna" that we did not ski,eat or really do anything after our first day. We turned off the radiator and slept with the balcony door open and it hardly made any difference.
The hotel rips you off by charging 23 euros a day to park next door (I spoke to somebody who said the main car park was half that and it literally is 2 mins walk away. The Spa is very poor in all aspects. The jacuzzis are freezing, the pool is way to cold, the sauna and steams rooms are small and not up to the job that they are supposed to do at all and on top of that they charge you 3.50 euros to buy the obligitory swimming cap.
No coffee/tea making facilities. TV has only BBC World for English speakers.
On the plus side the location is great and the buffet breakfast is very good, but they MUST MUST MUST sort out the heating issues. It totally ruined our trip that we were so looking forward to.
