My son and I spent four nights here in August 2013. I cannot say enough great things about this little gem! The staff were beyond belief in terms of how patient and helpful they were - suggestions for where to eat, what to do, how to make the most of our time. And the hotel itself was cozy (and not cozy in a sort of dingy way - smart and cozy). Loved the in-room jacuzzi with a view of the mountain, the fire that was set up to be lit in our fireplace every afternoon, the bin of good trashy movies in the main lodge, the heated floors. Overall, it had a lovely sense of place; great value for the money; excellent beds and loads of hot water -- just what you want from a ski place. I imagine would be equally great in the summer. Special shout-out to Sol, the manager, for her warmth and good travel sense -- she directed us to a great hike and then tea at Llao Llao (where, yes, we showed up in hiking boots) and equally as much to a very bohemian cheese fondue joint. And they work with Fire and Ice, ski rental/instructor joint on the far end of Cerro Catedral, where they hooked us up with a **great** instructor/ski guide (ask for Muchacho), and where we had the singular experience of having them call us one morning to say that the ski conditions were not good enough to go out - when did you ever have the experience of ski resort people not trying to suck you dry for money? This may have been the friendliest travel experience ever. Would return in a second.
