Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

A Hotel to avoid in PAS DE LA CASA Andorra

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Just returned from PAS DE LA CASA. Whilst we had a great week's skiing (variable weather), the hotel was about the worst I ever seen. It was the Hotel Katalunya, exclusive the First Choice at present.

It was billed as a family hotel, however it clearly isn't.

It starts with a tiny reception, which is nightmare on changeover day.

The hotel is over 5 floors (and a basement), served by a single unreliable lift.

If your unlucky enough to get room on the first or second accommodation floors, then forget sleep, the ground floor bar seems to be to primary haunt of the young locals, who party until 03:00, then the restaurant staff start setting up for breakfast at 06:00.

Some of the rooms our party was in hadn't been changed after the previous occupants and some of the rooms had mold, silver fish, etc, you get the picture.

They have this crazy idea of having ski lockers outside your room, so you traps through the hotel in wet ski boots, carrying wet skis, the drying ski boot smell is interesting. The cleaner had their work cut out for them, mopping you the mess this caused.

The only plus points are that it's close to the slopes and the food is good.

Luckily I was on the top floor, so sleep was an option and we found some nice bars to spend the evenings in.

To top it all, the transfer back to the airport was very disorganised, we had assigned for our groups, but that didn't stop luggage being scattered across a number of coaches. The Reps just didn't charge of the situation.

Yes we did complain as a group to First Choice, both through the resort office and back in the UK.

I was in this hotel with my girlfriend at the start of feb and it is as it says "2star" We found the location ideal (one of the closest to the slopes iv had "in town"). The food was excellent for a buffet style and as much as you can eat which in a resort after boarding all day was perfect Smile Yes the reception was small but if thats where you like to spend your ski holiday then i dont know..... Evil or Very Mad
I must also say that the basement bar was great - very friendly and the owner was always out and playing pool and having a banter and a shot. Very Happy Madeye-Smiley
I must also say thet the room was basic but very clean. The ski lockers were a pain but wee kept our boards in the bath until they dried then in the hall way. no problems. NehNeh
I must say to I would not only recomend this hotel - I would def go back.
Very Happy

Glad to hear the food has improved! It was AWFUL when we went (02?), so bad we actually ate out 4 of the 6 nights in the end....

Sounds like not much else has changed though - it was always rather 'bargain' end of the market - as someone else said thgouh - great location! aj xx
