    Great Stay
    Stayed here with a big group of skiing gals from Minneapolis during Chilean Wine Week, 2018. What a week! It's more than a hotel, it's an experience...We had a fantastic time it's a special place.
    What a great family ski experience !!
    We booked a “mini-week” for us (2 adults & 2 kids) ... and it was really one of our great trips. The level of service in the hotel is just amazing.... We are definitely coming back next year !!
