Single Parent Holiday, myself and my daughter aged 8. Would defo go back!
There are not nursery runs down to the hotels though like in some resorts that are free.
Hotel Montane was better than described. NO need for a SKI locker on the mountain as FOC at the hotel opposite the gondala. U can use own padlock or hire one for 10Euros which you get back on return. Same with TV remote its 20Euro deposit.
Free Wifi in the Reception area, in some rooms too. U can always ask for one with ?? Level 2 and I or some areas of the others. Also FREE mulled wine and T&Coffee in the reception area with free cakes and things too. All much appreaciated.
If you want a louder, hotel you can aways pop up to the princess park, there was a spa pool which was nice for a visit, larege coffee shop and sitting area. The Montane did for use though most days.
Average Size, good bed, nice linen, dressing table and bath and shower.
Very Clean and always clean towels.
Centre of the town, opposite ski bus stop to Pal, Arcalias.
Opposite the Ski gondala.. saves you walking as town is on a hill.
Service in Hotel:
Excellent Service throughout from reception to dining area. Food was amazing. Fab choice and 5******. Breakfast was conti but more than you could eat, we only had a full engish twice! Well worth the 5Euro extra.
Good Slopes and every run goes down to the main station to fab really.
Olivia and I had 1hr Snowboarding lesson for the first 3 mornings to help us get to know the slopes. The instructors were excellent and all english speaking. They did say they would not originally take mixed age group, but they did as Olivia and I are both intermediate boarders and well at the of the holiday, Olivia was better than me.. again!!! Lifts again all for Skiiers, we did ski some of the time but coped on the lifts which were all pretty quick, they even helped my daugher at the top as some were hard to get off on the board.
The Irish Pub the Derby was very child friendly, always free soft drinks before 7 with a sticker or so. El Cow and other places were good too.
TIP on the Buses/Taxi:
You can go to some ski areas FOC on the Ski Bus, for Pal you have to pay but very close.
Taxi is around 28Euro to the Pal Ski area but you can get the Taxi for 8Ero to the bottom of the gondala in La Macella ( not sure how spelt ). If not bus is about 2Euro.
