Just got back from a five night stay for 7 adults and 1 child in three varied sized rooms. Hotel was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. A good continental breakfast was provided including bread, croissants, cold meats, cheese, jams, eggs, toast, juices, coffee, tea etc to start off the day. Also a free ski locker and sauna was provided by hotel. The location is a 5 min walk to the centre and the free shuttle bus service stopped only a short walk from hotel. We had a couple of minor problems with key cards and a lack of hot water a couple of times, but the owners soon rectified this. The hotel owners were very accommodating.
Probably the best thing about the hotel is the 3 course evening meals which are provided in Mario's Restaurant a very short walk from the hotel. We started with bread sticks, delicious bread rolls with olive oil, balsamic vinegar etc, then there was a choice of three starters (including soup or pasta), a choice of three main meals followed by either a dessert, fresh fruit salad or ice cream. Both the food and the service was extremely good.
The only thing that would put us off going back to Livigno was that we felt there were not enough shuttle buses provided. When a bus did arrive at a stop, there would be a big surge of people to get a space on the bus, and inevitably this would cause some anger and problems especially when some people who had just arrived at the stop would push in front of those who had been waiting patiently. To be fair however, our hotel owner did say the problem may have been due to the fact that we went in low season. However, this problem did test my patience to the full when I was attempting to get a space for my 10 year old daughter, myself and our ski equipment!!!
Overall I would say Livigno is extremely good for intermediates and provides good wide red runs. The lift system worked well without many cues, and the slopes were very well maintained.
