We have stayed here several times over the last fifteen years, always looked after by the same friendly owner/mamagement team - Bob and Lucia. The hotel is a couple of miles outside of the main town but easily accessed. The rooms are a good size - warm in winter and we always seem to have one with a spectacular view of the Val di Fassa mountains, often able to see the black run into town, (seen but not yet experienced).
Breakfast is a generous buffet style eat as much as you need arrangement. Ideal for hungry skiers and healthy eaters, a selections of meats, cheese, bread, fruit, jams fruit juice, boiled eggs, cakes croissants etc. Dinner is a real treat, overseen by the highly accomplished chef Lucia.There is a well stocked help yourself salad bar, plus a choice of a pasta dish or a soup, then a choice of a main meat course, usually beef, veal, pork, chicken and fish will be on offer. This dish will be served with fresh vegetables - very tasty. we stayed for a week, in that time there were two special nights - a "gourmet night", and a "ladin night", These saw us presented with local meat dishes and accompaniment dishes of pasta, polenta and vegetables. the dessert menu was very varied, ranging from an excellent Tiramasu, Sachertorte, Strudel, etc and of course fresh fruit salad or ice cream.
The hotel has a Ski Bus stop right next to it, or you can walk about 200 metres down to the Ski Bus stop on the main raid, it is a good frequent service to the main lifts. We were lucky to get quite a lot of real snow but the pistes are kept up to a good standard with lots of snow making machines. One can drive to several other Superski centres easily if you have a car, Pellegrino, Pordoi, Moena, Lusia or link to them via the cable cars and lifts with the mainly red runs joining them up. If the the day is right make an early start and get the Sellaronda under your belt. We experienced very little queuing at the bottom lifts out of the valley providing you get going by 09.00. Saturday seems a quiet lift day due to it being changeover day for many visitors - but no guarantee because it may clash with local school holidays. At the end of the day you can return to the hotel, log on to the free wi-fi, count your runs with the Dolomiti Superski app and leave your boots and socks to dry in the capacious basement drying room. And/or have a whirlpool session or Sauna! Evenings in the family friendly bar are relaxed and if you have the energy there is night life in the nearby Canazei town centre.
This is a great place to stay if you want to avoid the homogenised ski tour holidays and for the non-skiers there are some nearby low level and higher level walks, swimming pool in the town, plus local churches, quaint architecture and best of all cake and coffee shops.
