Great for people that have never been skiing

Full review

Great resort and holiday. We had never been skiing before and took a punt of Arinsal. My wife, I and 3 kids enjoyed one of the best holidays ever. The instructors at the ski school were all excellent (we had 4 , 2 ski and 2 snowboarding). We met great people and will be returning next year (already booked).
