the friendly attitude towards us.
The Pool and Spa!! Breakfast. Proximity to ski school, ski rental equipment and slopes.
Large rooms, excellent spa.
The children below 14 are not allowed to use the spa even with parental supervision.
Everything was perfect
Deposite for ski equipment
Good location, friendly hotel staff, clean rooms and good service. Several of the staff went out of their way to help us.
Not a negative as the hotel has a lot to offer but It was not always clear what services or activities were available and how we could use them(e.g. kid care, nanny services, kids meals). Not specific to the hotel but if I had to do over again I would not have used the local ski school in Pontresina for the kids as suggested by the hotel, rather would have gone straight to one of the ski resorts.
