Portillo is unique because there is no actual town and only one hotel of note - Hotel Portillo.

Ollie and Kate B are here to help give you the inside track.

In this regard, the Portillo skiing experience is unlike that of any other commercial ski resort, and much the better for it. Hotel Portillo has mixture of rooms, suites and apartments. Some have mountain views while the rest have a stunning view of the Inca Lake. The hotel's heated pool enjoys spectacular views of the mountain scenery.

Even better, there's little of the pre-skiing faff because everything is included in the price from lift passes to accommodation and all meals a day. You even get a reserved table in the dining room for the duration of your stay. And for skiers who like it as comfortable as possible, queues at the lifts are something of a rarity as well.

After a big day,why not relax in the outdoor Jacuzzi with its incredible mountain view, and if you're still a bit tight, a massage should have you ready to go again in no time.

Why we love it

Sipping an despues-ski cold beer in the pool as the sun goes down behind the soaring Andes is an experience not to be forgotten in a hurry.
