We returned to the Argentina for our ninth visit and the hotel simply gets better and better. It has a really fantastic location and offers outstanding value in this quite expensive area. The hotel continues to be particularly suitable for families as children are made very welcome, and the hotel is located right on the slopes and normally has very convenient ski in/ski out access.
For the first time in nearly ten years of skiing in the Dolomites there was a shortage of snow this year which made it impossible to ski back to the hotel in the evening. Although this was frustrating the problem could be solved by either using the ski bus or driving 2 kilometres up the road to Son dei Prade . Skis etc. can be hired on the premises and lift passes can be arranged by reception. The staff, particularly on reception, couldn’t be more friendly and welcoming and go out of their way to be as helpful as possible.
The bedrooms, which are decorated in typically alpine style have been fitted with new double glazed windows, and are cosy and comfortable. The beds are particularly comfortable with good quality bed linen with proper sheets, blankets and quilts. Bathrooms are spotless with either a bath or shower. The rooms are serviced each morning by a hard working and efficient team of maids and bed linen is changed frequently.
Virtually free Wi-Fi is available and works in all parts of the hotel including the bedrooms.
The restaurant and food quality have improved notably since last year and on most nights a very acceptable meal is provided with a good choice of dishes. Wines are competitively priced and a good bottle of wine costs around €16. Breakfasts continue to be good and now a hot dish is available together with the usual choice of bread, cheese, cold meats and cereals.
Overall then I am glad to report that the hotel continues to impress and can’t recommend it highly enough for a skiing holiday at reasonable prices in breathtaking mountain scenery.
