Spain has all sorts of ski hotels, from simple slope-side lodges to luxurious mountain retreats. Ski-out locations keep things convenient, while wellness centres offer warm welcomes after a day on the snow.
If you’re travelling with youngsters, kids clubs, games rooms and swimming pools will help them have fun with newly made amigos. And when it comes to mealtimes, buffets, a la cartes and tapas bars serve every taste.
Featuring big international brands, Spain has some fabulous ski hotels. They’re often inches from the ski lifts and slopes, giving seamless access to the ski area and home at the end of the day.
Indoors, first class facilities give oodles of off-slope opportunity. Hit the gym or spend time in the spa, swapping between the likes of saunas, Jacuzzis, Turkish baths and counter current pools. The best Spanish ski hotels are home to some awesome swimming pools, where panoramic windows let you paddle among the peaks (usually swimming hats and flip flops are essential). Add private or helicopter transfers to your booking for a truly special stay.
The bigger hotels have their own bars and restaurants for guests to use, letting you enjoy good food and vino without having to stray far from your room. Buffet restaurants serve a huge selection of international cuisine, while a la carte restaurants menus mix regional and international dishes. Tapas bars are popular in these parts, and well worth experiencing whether you’re after a drink and a snack or a delicious Spanish dinner. Sometimes food’s included on a B&B basis, providing breakfast on-site then letting you choose where to spend dinnertimes. Half Board deals meanwhile provide breakfast and supper in the hotel throughout your stay.
