We chose to stay at this hotel to avoid the high accommodation prices at Valle Nevado and it was a great decision. All the staff were so helpful and welcomingi. Food at the hotel was great and something to look forward to after a day on the slopes. Rooms were a good size and comfortable. The hotel provides a fee shuttle service to the two smaller hills La Parva and Colorado. Staff will also arrange for you for a fee transfers to the Valle Nevado.
Nothing ever seemed like too much trouble for staff and it made for a fabulous start to our trip in Chile. For Australians looking to ski in Chile, daunted by the high costs I would recommend this Hotel. Send the hotel an email and they will make all the arrangements including transfers from Santiago or the airport.
