The hotel is located approximately 75 metres from the mid-stop of the Parador village chairlift. This takes four minutes to take you down to the central squares of the lower zone which is the area where the main lifts up to the ski slopes are located together with the majority of shops, bars and restaurants.
In addition, the hotel is very conveniently located next to the “Maribel” piste (graded blue) which is usually open for the majority of the season, thereby making this as close to a “ski-in / ski-out” option as is possible in Sierra Nevada! Less confident skiers can take a gentle green track from the end of the road below the hotel (about 100 metres away) which takes you down to the lower zone and the gondolas giving access to the main ski terrain. Complete beginners will have to take the Parador chairlift down to the central squares in order to access the slopes safely.
The hotel is of modern rustic design, offering homely and spacious lounge areas for relaxing in during the evenings, a games area for kids, a popular bar and two restaurants, ski lockers and equipment hire. There is also a small health club including sauna, hydro-massage and massage therapies (charges apply).
Outdoor parking is available free of charge and, subject to availability, there is also private covered parking which can only be requested upon arrival and paid for at reception.
Rooms are simplistic but comfortable. All have satellite TV and WiFi. All are exterior rooms, with some having a balcony or terrace. The standard rooms, as in most hotels, consist of two single beds pushed together which, when a “twin” is required, may easily be separated. Family rooms typically have a bunk bed in them in addition to the two standard beds. Please note that the bunk beds may not have safety rails on the upper bunk. There are some five-bedded rooms available (usually three single beds plus a bunk bed), which is almost unique for hotels in Sierra Nevada whose maximum occupancy is usually four people. There are also Junior Suite and Suite options available.
This hotel often works out as an ideal choice for families on a tighter budget looking for attractive lodgings in a friendly and homely environment.
