The largest of the Valle Nevado hotels, Puerta del Sol can be identified by its signature sloped roof. One good option is the Altillo rooms, which have a loft bed that gives you more space. North-facing rooms cost more but have unobstructed views of the slopes. Since all three hotels share facilities and Tres Puntas is really a hostel, Puerta del Sol is your best hotel value.
