I really recommend this hotel but there are a few thing to improve!
- Staff is GREAT! They were very very very amable!
- The food is delicious! After a day skiing you will be 'rewarded' with a nice dinner!
- They will drive you from Farellones to El Colorado for free!
- You can walk to Farellones and the Embudo (lift that connects Farellones and El Colorado) with no problems! It is a 5 min or less walk!
- High quality furniture in the rooms.
- Extremely clean rooms!
- They have a ski room with boot dryer.
- It's hard to find the hotel. Farellones village is not that big, but there are no signs in front of the hotel. I lost almost an hour trying to find it!!! Nobody knows where it is, not even the locals!
- Way too expensive. The rate is about US$300! I only paid that once. It was in Peru in the best hotel I've ever stayed at (I had many perks there, including a butler). At Chalet Valluga, despite being a good stay, it does not compare with my stays above $ 250.
- The room was small.
- There aren't an in room temperature control. The heating is controled from outside the room!
- No ski-in/ski-out.
- This has nothing about the hotel itself but I must say that the infrastructure on the mountains is not the best. We've tryed to make arrangements to go from there to Valle Nevado, which is 10km far from Farellones, with no success! (One drived wanted to charge us US$160... It was cheaper if we went to Santiago and then to Mountains again. There aren't restaurants or activities like in a Ski Resort in North America.
