We stayed at the Continental for 7 nights as part of a 2 Centre holday with a British Package Holiday. The Hotel is located in the meadows above Selva, where in winter the nursery ski slopes are located. It is located right next to one of the Mountain Gondalas so gives you direct access to the mountains for walks or skiing. However the hotel is a stiff 10-15 minute walk uphill from the village centre, only with a hourly local bus service during the day only.
We stayed on a Half Board basis, which consisted of a varied Continental Buffet breakfast and a 5 course dinner, which usually had 3 alternative choices of starter, main and dessert. The food was of a very high standard and served by attentive restaurant staff in traditional dress.
Our room was on the rear elevation, and was furnished and decorated to a high standard, with a shared balcony. All parts of the hotel were decorated to the same high standards. The hotel has a wellness spa in the basement, but we did not use this facility during our stay.
The hotel was very popular with a cross of nationalities and wide range of ages, with several groups of couples with children. It is a family owned hotel, with attentive owners and staff, but lacked some friendliness and character, with service on a more formal basis. Fully meets it's 4 star rating.
On the down side, the bar area is very formal and lacks character - with very few people using it. The hotel also lacks any sun terrace, apart from a few sunloungers and benches in a small patch of grass surrounding the building
