The kids (and adults) will love the dedicated children's pool as well as the bright and cheerful play area. The hotel runs an entertainment programme to keep little ones happy while parents can enjoy a relaxing drink at one of the bars.

Soldeu is home to one of the best native English speaking ski schools in Europe. They’ll transform nervous beginners into confident skiers and boarders in no time. The speedy and advanced can also choose from a range of classes and clinics, all set in the fantastic, 210km Grandvalira area.
The wonderful range of blues and reds as well as some world-class black slopes are all expertly maintained and the safe terrain make this perfect for exploring on your own or with a guide.
