What most guests don’t expect – and what they all tend to comment on after they arrive – is how big the hotel is. The entire lower level of the hotel is dedicated to the extras that we work hard to provide in Portillo. On the lower level you’ll find, among others: the fitness room, the yoga room, the disco, the complimentary boot and ski check, the game room , climbing wall, and the full court gymnasium. Everything is contained within the big, yellow hotel and whether young or old, everyone who takes a walk around finds something to do.
In the living room on Sunday night before dinner, Portillo hosts a cocktail for all guests. It is a good occasion to meet fellow guests, ski and snowboard school instructors and Portillo executive staff.
For keeping fit, we offer a full fitness center equipped with treadmills, elliptical, bicycles, free-weights and a variety of other exercise equipment.

Next to the fitness center is our Yoga and stretching room that is open for stretching in the morning and throughout the day, and offers free Yoga classes each evening.
The hotel also features a full court, hardwood floor gymnasium that is outfitted for playing soccer, basketball, volleyball, badminton and other sports. Our entertainment staff often organizes sports tournaments which all guests may participate in. Check the hotel’s bulletin boards for schedules.
What better way to unwind after a long day on the mountain than watching the Andean sunset from the warmth of our heated outdoor pool or Jacuzzi. Water Fitness and Watsu water therapy classes are available on Saturdays and Sundays during the season. Please check the activities calendar in the hotel for hours and availability.
Located in the fitness center, sauna and massage are popular ways to wind down in Portillo. We suggest you make massage reservations in advance.
Our beauty salon is available for haircuts, styling, make-up, waxing, nails, etc. Check your guest handbook for hours of operation.
To check email or browse the internet, we have a fully equipped internet café (available for a fee). Wi-Fi is also available in the living room and guest rooms free of charge.
Each evening there is a movie or other programming available in our cinema. Check the hotel’s bulletin boards each day for the cinema schedule.
Our store is stocked with ski wear, accessories, personal care items, Portillo gear and souvenirs.
Children and adults enjoy playing one of our many board games in our comfortable, relaxing living room.
If the kids aren’t playing games or lounging in the living room, there is a good chance they’re in our huge game room on the hotel’s lower level. Equipped with foosball, billiards and ping pong tables, a climbing wall, and next to the full court gym, kids and teens find hours of enjoyment in our game room.
Sol de Portillo Race
On Thursdays we have a giant slalom course on the lower plateau were we race the Sol de Portillo, a ski school race on the Puma run and a beginner’s race on the Corralito run. You may take race lessons earlier in the week from one of our instructors. The race is just for fun, and we have an awards ceremony in the living room on Thursday night for all competitors and guests to enjoy.
On Friday nights, the Ski School performs an entertaining torchlight parade on our Plateau run. Perfect views of the spectacle are available from the living room terrace and the guest lakeside rooms.
Doctors and two nurses provide first-aid and general medicine needs. The health clinic is located on the lower level of the hotel. In case of emergency, contact the front desk 24 hours a day.
If there is a problem that our team cannot solve, we have available land and air transport (helicopter) to be taken to a hospital.
