Reviewed 24 December 2012

just come back from a long weekend. The hotel is bang in the centre and close to the skilift, which is what you want when you are walking around in ski boots. Check in was fast and efficient. Room was nice and well equipped, although extremely hot, even with the radiator turned off. We went half board and both food and service were good. A couple of negatives: the wifi did not work the last 2 days of our stay. The concierge slammed our bedroom door when he did not get a tip (I was in the bathroom and my husband did not have any change on him, I tipped him later on) which I thought was rather rude and inappropriate.
Also, as previous reviews stated, the walls are very thin.
All in all I would recommend it, it's pricey but so is everything else in the area.

Seemed expensive at first but excellent quality especially the breakfast buffet. Central location is ideal. Only downside was that use of the spa was 29 euros and should have been included in room price.

We stayed here as part of our road trip around the south of Spain and stayed for one night to allow us two days of skiing. It was one of the most expensive hotels we stayed at during our stay (almost as much as a Parador). The cost was inevitably high due to it's remote location but in honesty I probably wouldn't stay there again.

Parking was 23eur a day but drove straight in to the public car park below which is slightly cheaper although difficult to unload from. The room was perfectly fine, standard Melia, with free wifi throughout, although we did find it rather hot!

Unfortunately the walls were very thin which meant a lot of unwanted noise from the street at night and plenty of noise from screaming kids going down the corridor in the morning.

The location is excellent, very close to the lifts and centre of town. We were provided lockers at the basement level which is very close to the snow, but ended up not needing them as the hire company kept our equipment overnight. The spa/pool were only available at an extra charge (around 35eur/ea) which was a bit of a shame - although we already knew this from other reviews.

We went during mid March so the town was practically dead during the night with little to do. If we were do to do this trip again we'd probably stay in Granada and drive up and down (snow allowing) - it's really not that far and the extra cost of the hotel wasn't really justified for us.

This is the second time we have stayed here over February half term. Couldnt fault it, We were on Half board, the Buffet is superb for both Breakfast and Dinner so much choice . Great Games room for the kids and a free Kids Club in the evening. This year they had free WI FI throughout the Hotel which was a real bonus. What I particularly liked is that you drive your car to reception, check in. They then park your car and bring all your luggage up to the room. Same thing for checkout. Effortless. Bar prices are reasonable and they make great Mohjitos. We had a family suite in the old part. Yes, they are a little dated but perfectly functional. No tea and coffee in the rooms which would have been a bonus. One tip is to try and upgrade to the new section but its restrictive if there are 4 of you. Ski lockers are on the ground floor and complimentary with your room card to lock them. There is an indoor pool which is free to use and a very good Spa by all accounts that we didnt get to use. For a 4 star Hotel it really was top notch.

Room Tip: Pick a high floor. Rooms are very warm so open the windows before you go out in the evening. There a...

I´ve been there twice.
The first was on the opening and it was the worst experience of my holidays - the hotel hadn't the facilities finished!...

The second time was very good. Quite confortable, near to the pradollano plaza and with a fantastic Spa for the «after-skying» (Pitty the expensive price of it...)

Tip: visit the Pizzaria in from of it...

Just a few words to share with everyone about this hotel situated in the center of town in Sierra Nevada.
The very first moment you drive up to Sierra Nevada you come across underground Public Parking, if you are driving you ought to stick to your left to enter the parking which is conveniently connected to the hotel. I left my car for about 30 hours and was charged about 1€ per hour. The hotel has a good reception area, clerks and staff speak very little English but are very helpful. I reserved a premium room which was absolutely gorgeous, nice and spacious with a large bathroom, a large master bedroom and a small room with a sofa/bed, 2 tv, 2 desks, a large cupboard and a good mini bar. Overall very comfortable.
The restaurant is buffet style, we had breakfast and dinner there. Great variety of food and desert. Drinks not included.
The hotel has a small gym, an indoor swimming pool and aparently a good Spa(didnt use any).
You have to book the Spa beforehand with a cost of €60 euros if i'm not mistaken.
Hotel is 5 minutes away from the ticket booths for skiing or snow boarding. Lot of shops selling ski equipment apart from others who rent it for just 25€ a day.

Room Tip: Ask for a premium room, not so much difference in price. In general all rooms are quiet and there i...
