Amazing Hotel & Ski School For....
So, here's my first ever review on Trip Advisor - and it's well deserved. I have just come back from a 4 day trip and I took my daughter to learn to Ski. As a single parent, first and foremost, it felt very safe staying here and all of the staff were lovely. The highlight of the trip was definitely the Ski School. It's so handy as it is a part of the hotel - and it's definitely geared towards teaching complete beginners. My daughter's ski instructor (Marcos) was so great with her (as you know 4 year olds can be testing).! He went above and beyond with her, when she was scared of the strong wind at one point he actually carried her down the slope.! Other than this, the rooms are great - very big for a 4* and very clean. I would say the only downfall is the transfer time from Barcelona - which is 4 hours by bus. So, if you have the cash, I would splash out on a private transfer. Oh yes and Easy Jet...!!! never again.... 4 hours delay on the way out and 2.5 on the way back.!! A whole half day off our already short holiday.
Thankfully, everything else made up for it. Thank you Hotel Parador Canaro :-)

Learn in comfort...
Arriving at around 4pm on a Saturday we had no problem finding a parking spot directly opposite the on-site ‘Ski Centre’ in the smaller lower level car park. The main car park at road level also had ample space. The hotel is very easy to spot from the main road approaching from the El Tarter or Soldeu direction.
I had booked through Expedia and check in was smooth, the hotel seemed to have missed my request for two beds instead of a double but this was quickly resolved. Reception at check-in was extremely friendly and efficient and I found this to be the case throughout. Little was too much effort.
The draw of the hotel for me was the on-site slope and accessibility of private tuition for boarding or skiing. The private lessons bookable in advance or on arrival are equivocally priced to those available in the main Grandvalira resort, these are not subject to any hotel resident discount unlike the passes required for the private slope. The slope despite its small stature was perfect for learning to board as a complete novice. On Sunday the slope was shared with only a handful of other keen learners whereas the Monday was literally a private slope for 3 of the 5 hours we spent there. The slope is well groomed and conditions were excellent. Perhaps the drag lift run could have had a little more attention with large ruts appearing late on the day but this is nothing more than you experience in some of the best resorts in Europe. The boarding tuition provided by ‘Marcos’ was very good, he quickly moved us to a reasonable level of competency after 3 hours of coaching and the same amount of practice. He spoke good English and supported myself and my son with patience throughout - this is my first experience of private lessons and I would have no hesitation to recommend. Equipment hire available on site, comparable again to main resort hire locations after your 20% resident discount. Ski lockers are also available on-site in the -2 Floor, keys are on a €10 cash deposit, from this location you also access the free shuttle to the El Tarter lift.
The hotel room was good. Our twin road facing room had ample room and the bathroom was spacious. The room was if anything a tad too warm for our liking and opening the door to the road made it a little too noisy to sleep (passing road noise). This was overcome by cooling room before bed and then closing door for sleep. I would guess that this is not a problem in the slightly more expensive slope facing rooms. Ample toiletries provided and lots of hot water to ease the post slope aches and pains! What was missing from the room? A kettle / facilities to make a hot drink... very British to mention that we like a cup of tea on demand but for a 4* I’d have thought standard.
The bar and restaurant are spacious and welcoming. During our visit it was quite low occupancy so maybe lacked a little atmosphere in the evening but a good range of drinks and Alessandro makes a pretty good G&T. The bar / snack menu is available from midday apart from a short break between 7 and 8 when the staff have a break before the restaurant opens. During our stay we tried the Cannelloni, the Burger and the fillet steak, each were very good and could only have been improved by a little longer in the respective cooking grills, pans, ovens... but that’s personal taste. Dessert was sampled with ‘Pastis de Formatge’ and the ‘Textures de xocolata’ tried on recommendation. Certainly not disappointed if somewhat surprised to find grated cheese with a white moose and sorbet ice cream! The chocolate option was very rich but smooth and tasty. Breakfast was a good spread with a large local and continental selection, you certainly won’t go hungry. The ‘cooked’ selection was a little lacking compared to my expectations of a 4* breakfast, no eggs on demand, only those in the serving dishes which had on some mornings seen better times. It wouldn’t take much to offer this cooked service on demand and would really finish the breakfast service and make on par with others at similar rating.
The hotel offers a games room, see pictures for retro (mid 1990’s) arcade games, table football, air hockey, card tables, and a slightly angled pool table (please level the table if anyone from hotel reads!), even so it was a very good way to while away a few hours of an evening.
I did not use the ‘gym’ during my stay but did have a look. It’s a fitness room at best with a few rather tired looking pieces of CV equipment scattered about the room. A little room for improvement here.
Location as you research is between the resorts of El Tarter and Soldeu, both are in walkable distance, the former being slightly closer but seemingly (from our limited exploration) having not a lot about it, Soldeu having lots more going on in terms of shopping, restaurants, bars, etc.
This was my first trip to Andorra having spent >20 years visiting the large linked French Alps resorts for my annual skiing holiday but I can safely say that I plan to visit again and would recommend the Parador Canaro to anyone. It’s particular strength is it’s on-site winter sports tuition and private slope, it makes it a great place to learn for children and adults alike, it’s proximity and service to Grandvalira means the next stage of your experience is delivered as part of the service. The staff were responsive and very friendly making this a great place to stay.

The staff are amazing their sole purpose is to ensure you have a great stay. Great selection for breakfast. Suggest opt for half board which can be done daily, good selection but needs a bit more veggies. Great beginners slop attached to hotel but a bit pricey. Mini bus to slops is a great addition.

Really lovely hotel, staff really friendly, helpful and accommodating. Good breakfast selection and nice dinner (no veggie option though!) room very nice and bus to the lift at El Tatar is perfect. Does have a ski run attached but is pricy for what it is unless your a beginner.

Practical and super comfy
Not modern, not trendy but very comfortable and practical and only a two minute drive from the El Tarter ski lift.
This is the second year running that we chose this great hotel for our family ski trip with a group of friends.
The staff are very friendly and accommodating.
The rooms are enormous with kingsized comfy beds, loads of cupboards and luxurious bathrooms.
If you don't want to relax in your room after a heavy day skiing, you can choose between an enormous basement lounge, with a television and an interesting central fireplace or another cosier lounge on the ground floor, adjacent to the bar/cafetaria area, also with an open fireplace.
A small gym and a separate games room are also available for those not already exhausted by the ski slopes.
Breakfast has amazing wholewheat and traditional croissants and the coffee is excellent.
There is a selection of cold meats, cheeses and jams and a cooked breakfast is always available.
Dinner offers a choice of around eight starters, including an onion soup, very nicely served over fresh vegetables and cheese, ravioli and pesto sauce, canellone, prawn salad and also a goat's cheese salad.
There is also a presunto dish, which is very popular, and a meat soup.
Main dishes include lamb chops, rump steak, "chateaubriand" steak (at an extra cost), salmon, codfish, duck, hamburger, seafood rice and an excellent oxtail dish on red wine. All very good.
All meat dishes were served with fried chips and peppers "pimento padron"
Some of us would have preferred an alternative selection of vegetables.
Desserts also good and we especially enjoyed the fruit salad with "mojito" ice cream, the red berry soup and the chocolate mousse variation.
A selection of fruit and cheese should be included on the dessert menu.
The WiFi service is excellent.
The hotel offers free outside parking and charges 20€ a night for underground parking.
