The Hotel Palarine is run by a British couple who provide a warm welcome to our guests. It is a popular hotel in Erts, offering quality food and friendly service.

Warm welcome

The Hotel Palarine is a popular family-run hotel offering something quite unique in any ski resort. It's run by a British couple Graham and Maria, who provide a welcoming atmosphere and they have worked hard to build up the reputation that the hotel has for quality food and excellent friendly service.

The hotel has a comfortable lounge and bar and bedrooms are well-decorated and spacious, offering you a comfortable place to stay during your holiday to Andorra.

Village location

The hotel is located in Erts, which is a pretty village just five minutes away by the free ski shuttle bus to Arinsal and the main gondola. Take the main gondola up to access the fantastic ski area which has a variety of runs for all abilities. After a day on the slopes, you can either head back to the hotel which hosts regular après events or stay in Arinsal, where you have a variety of cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from. You can then get the shuttle back to the hotel, ready to enjoy your evening meal.

Delicious food

The food is one of the most popular aspects of the hotel. There's a continental buffet and cooked breakfast with UK favourites like British sausages and baked beans which really sets you up for the day.

The evening meals are themed dinner buffets including a Sunday roast, Tex-Mex, Chinese, Spanish, Italian and Indian, all including meat and fish dishes, fresh salads and homemade soups and desserts.

Arinsal, located towards Andorra’s western border with Spain, is part of Andorra’s Vallnord ski region which includes the Pal and Arinsal ski areas, with runs totalling almost 60 miles. There are two separate and very distinct villages - Arinsal is more lively with lots of night life, and La Massana which has more shops and restaurants. The resorts are 6 kilometres apart and connected by bus that runs until 9pm. Both Arinsal and La Massana are family-orientated and offer you access to some of the best-value skiing anywhere in Europe.

Skiing and snowboarding in Arinsal 

Between both villages there are plenty of well-prepared confidence building runs making it an ideal destination if you and your group are made up of beginners and intermediates. The radical ‘Freestyle Area’ also caters well for snowboarders. The season runs from December till mid-April and snow here is good until the end of season thanks to most of the slopes being covered by snow canons. 

Where to stay in Arinsal 

Arinsal is a very friendly village and is well suited to couples and families. We offer a range of hotels in both Arinsal and La Massana so you can choose the village that's best suited to you. Whether you simply want a base and plan on spending most of your time on the mountains or you'd like the whole package with access to wellness and relaxation areas, we're sure you'll find something that ticks all your boxes. 

Bars and restaurants in Arinsal

Throughout both villages, there are great international places to eat including some Argentinian steak houses, Mexican restaurants and pizzerias. There are also a selection of bars and Irish pubs, with most restaurants and bars being family friendly. Après ski is more lively in Arinsal than La Massana and one of the firm favourites is an open bar and club known as Surf which has live DJ performances as well as a restaurant area. 

Ski deals in Arinsal 

The Nord lift pass covers the local areas of Arinsal and Pal (La Massana) as well Ordino-Arcalis where you find good opportunities for snowboarding - don't worry when skiing between Arinsal and La Massana as free use of the ski bus that runs between the two villages is included with the pass. And if you feel like switching it up during your stay, the pass also provides a day in the Grandvalira Ski Area which includes Arinsal's neighbouring resorts of Soldeu & Pas de la Casa.
