Customer Top Tips

Andorra Top Tips

We think it would be clear to anyone who’s had interaction with us that we absolutely love Andorra – it’s a ‘home away from home’ for us that not only offers some varied and fantastic skiing opportunities but also offers great value for money; a welcoming, friendly atmosphere; a great variety of accommodation and plenty of bars and restaurants to entertain yourself after your day on the mountain has finished… but that’s just our opinion (and we admit be may be a tiny bit biased).

As part of our customer satisfaction surveys we always like to ask our customers what they have thought of their experience, and here is what they told us – these are your top tips for a holiday to Andorra…

What did you like best about the ski area, and why?


Very good for beginners of which my other half is. Friendly staff and easy to get to Pal for different runs. Ski school was great and good value. Arinsal is lovely and good variation of restaurants and pubs.

Rhona – Glasgow, UK

As a first-time skier, I loved how many blue slopes there were. I was able to ski down from the top of Massana and Arinsal by the end of my 4 days of skiing.

Haley – Warrington, UK

Beautiful, easy to access, safe, enjoyable and suitable for all ages / abilities.

Andy – Llanelli, UK

Soldeu & El Tarter

The mountain is not crowded compared to other sites in Europe. Great food and excellent prices on the mountain.

Yotam – Tel Aviv, Israel

It has a good mix of runs that a family can utilise when skiing together.

Robin – London, UK

Lots of diverse slopes to pick from, small queues.

Kay – Bromley, UK

Pas de la Casa

The mountain scenery is just breath-taking! The slopes are wide and there are slopes for all levels of skiing and snowboarding.

Michael – Mallorca, Spain

Plenty of options on runs for different abilities e.g. some of our party were more comfortable on blue runs and others wanted to do red/blacks, yet most runs meet somewhere at the bottom so everyone was happy! We would always say “see you at the bar” and meet up there. Grau Roig was our favourite to ski into from Pas.

Sarah – Belfast, Northern Ireland

Long and well-maintained slopes, lots of services offered on the slopes.

Paulo – Sintra, Portugal

What was your favourite bar or restaurant, and why?


El Derby and Ciscos. Great drinks and company.

Refugi, very warm welcome and reasonable prices.

Jenni – Exeter, UK

El Cabin in Arinsal was my favourite restaurant because of the warm cosy atmosphere, nice bartenders and good food.

The Harp, good live music and lively but friendly.

James – Watford, UK

Les Truites – great service and nice family run hotel.

Catriona – UK

And here are some general top tips we thought were great as well…

Do some exercise before you come to ski.

Audra – Ireland

The ski hire shop can be very busy around 5:30pm onwards. Be prepared to queue. Print out plenty of discount vouchers for the various places before you travel.

Alan – Limerick, Ireland

Be patient when getting equipment or ready for the day if kids are with you. Avoid stress as you are on holiday remember. Also, don’t try and do everything in one day. Enjoy the run you are on.

Darren – Broxbourne, UK

Book ski school even if you can ski, good fun, get to areas you may not have found.

Tania – Portsmouth, UK

I would buy the food option with the lift pass. My friends both did but I didn’t and I paid much more for food than them.

Euan – Glasgow, UK

Get up early. First hour on the slopes were empty.

Mark – Rugby, UK
