1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We were misdirected to the main madarao hotel then charged $75 to be picked up 60m away before we got there. Orher hotels many kms away took us home due to snow and bus was 1/4 price manny kms further. Meanwhile 3 hotel bus sat idle for next 4 days. Facilities were rundown. No safety rails on stairs to entry or ski store. Drying room heater turned off & foyer to conserve $. Underwhelming brealfast with occasional poor higeine. Requests made, nothing fixed in week multi room 10 pp group include no room heater, leaking toilet, not enough towels for persons booked to rooms, facilities nonexistant compared to claim on booking- infact no fridge, minibar, credit card facility, toiletries, crockery or, cutlery. The one vending machine out of order the whole week was only source of food or drink. Overall worse than a backpackers the locals avoid.

Comfortable and convenient on the ski slopes
A comfortable hotel right on the ski slopes. Could use a bit of maintenance (hotel lost power a few times due to overload but they quickly fixed it each time). But it was clean and comfortable and the staff were incredibly helpful. Convenience of ski hire shop and a great bar and food in the hotel. They also arrange easy trips to the snow monkeys which saved us so much time. Breakfast supplied each morning which was a bonus.
