We went under no illusions that the food would be good – but we were served raw chicken and the chef was very rude, so it would be better going room only! My daughter had a “salad bowl” which turned out to be just an orange with a knife (the orange wasn’t even very nice and had no taste at all), the food on... + more

Lively après ski Varied ski area Family friendly skiing

Arinsal may remain one of Europe’s most underrated ski destinations, but year on year it closes the gap on the larger resorts. With some of the sunniest skiing in Europe, incredible duty free shopping and dining and a massive range of off slope activities, Arinsal is a more than viable alternative, especially during the busiest weeks of the season.

Shedding its reputation as the cheap and cheerful ski option, Arinsal (and the entire Vallord ski area) is now ready to play with the big boys. Whilst it may not be able to compete like for like with the French Alps in terms of vertical, there’s ample terrain for a week’s trip now the ski area has been increased by the lift link to Pal and the inclusion of the nearby Ordino-Arcalis on the same pass. And as with any trip to tax friendly Andorra you’ll end up more than impressed with the amount you’ll save thr...
There’s a great variety of terrain throughout Vallnord, and skiers of all abilities and disciplines are well catered for. The area at the top of the La Massana gondola in Pal is the perfect place for beginners to start getting to grips with the snow. The three short drag lifts service gentle green runs which are left unmolested by more experienced skiers. There is also a ‘snow garden’ which will keep youngsters entertained, whilst the many slope side restaurants allow for a well-earned break- the tapas at t...
Arinsal comes alive in the evenings, and with the regions strong Basque influences the locals certainly know how to party- duty free prices mean you won’t be breaking the bank either. There is a wide selection of bars also serving good food if you enjoy settling in for the evening. Ciscos’ restaurant serves tex mex style dishes- their Cajun mango chicken is delicious- and the downstairs bar is popular with English tourists and the ex-pat community. Quo Vadis is a more informal affair- a lively après ski bar...

"Great location, terrible food"

Mark Scott, Newtownabbey
3/ out of 5
We went under no illusions that the food would be good – but we were served raw chicken and the chef was very rude, so it would be better going room only! My daughter had a “salad bowl” which turned out to be just an orange with a knife (the orange wasn’t even very nice and had no taste at all), the food on the hot plate was cold and the chips were freezing – we were told that this is how Spanish people like their food... The owner’s social skills left a lot to be desired and the chef came out and absolutely cracked up which scared off the other people who were about to complain. We ended up eating out for the week – the restaurants in the resort aren’t that expensive and we liked everywhere we ate. The rooms were basic and clean, I had read reviews that they were small but for a family of four, what we had was perfect – all you would want from a room on a ski holiday. The balcony looked over a slope that was particularly steep after you come round the left bend at the very end; it was quite a laugh watching the novices who ignored the warning sign higher up! All there was in the rest of the hotel was the dining room, reception and a small games room although my children didn’t use this so I can’t comment on it. If you take the food out of it, I would go back and stay here. The owner is sitting on a goldmine if he made a bit more effort as the location is unbelievable - right at the ski lift which is 25-30 metres from the door and you can ski right to the door. It’s at the top of the hill, so you need to walk to get your groceries (you can get the bus but it’s easier to walk).

The whole holiday was absolutely fantastic. The location and the atmosphere in the hotel were fantastic. The position is perfect, the hotel is right at the side of the lifts. It’s at the top of the hill so you can walk into town or take the bus, it’s easy. Arinsal isn’t a big place. I went with my daughter who was learning to ski for the first time (apart from in the snow dome in the UK) and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. It must be one of the top hotels in Arinsal. My daughter said it was the best holiday she had ever had. Everyone was so friendly everywhere, in the bars, at the hotel. The hotel is quite big so we met lots of other people; there were lots of other families and my daughter made loads of friends her own age. Our room was very comfortable and clean. We had a kitchen area and a microwave, although we didn’t need to use it much because we had half board. It was good for making late night snacks though. We had the best of both worlds really, we could eat out on the slopes and then have snacks in our room, or come back and have dinner at the hotel. The food was fine, it was basic but there was variety. The bar in the hotel was nice too. From start to finish it was a top holiday – the kind you dream of. As soon as I can afford it I’d like to go back!
