We stayed here as a family in Feb 2012 and had a really lovely time. The Rooms have been refurbished to a good standard and are nice and warm which is all we needed for our Ski trip. The bathroom we had didnt have a bath, but a very small shower. The water is always hot although not very powerful.
The staff are all very friendly indeed and nothing is too much trouble. You even get taken in the Hotels own mini bus to and from the slopes every day which is a real bonus. It runs every 5 mins in the morning so you can just get up and go when you are ready. The bus starts again in the afternoon up to 5.00pm so you can have a nice drink at one of the bars before you travel back if you want to.
Passo Tonale is an ideal resort for beginners and intermediates. Nearly all the slopes are south facing and you can easily ski from one slope over to another. There are many areas for beginners to learn as well. There is a lovely 3km long blue run which is lovely to start on frist thing to get you going, and there is one main black run on the other side of the valley. There are also quite a few good red runs as well. Overall we had a lovely time in both the Hotel and skiing in Passo Tonale.
I would just mention as other people have that the food is just OK. You wont starve, but some of the evening meals were a little disappointing and the choice for children was either chicken nuggets or an awful pizza. However some of the sweets were very nice and i would definitely stay here again.
Overall we had a very good time and I would recommend this Hotel as a good 3 star hotel as advertised. They are quite a few places to eat out if you fancy a change on some evenings, and also there are quite a few bars for Apres Ski.
If you are thinking of trying Passo Tonale this Hotel is a good choice.
