We have just returned from this amazing location, having had a 5 night stay. A family of 4, we stayed in a 2 bedroom Saaga apartment, across the car park from the hotel, visiting the hotel for their amazing breakfasts.
We could not fault anything at all. The hotel was gorgeous, decked with atmospheric candles and fairy lights that made it feel even more cosy, festive and welcoming through the long nights and half light. The decor was beautiful but homely, making great use of local materials and styles.
The breakfasts were spectacular! There was more choice than I could have ever dreamt of, catering to the tastes of the huge range of nationalities staying there, and presented in a casual manner that would befit a lifestyle magazine.
Our apartment was perfect. The beds were twins that could be pushed together, then there was also a sofa bed in the living room. Everything was clean and fresh, and we had our own personal sauna. A tiny shop next to the hotel, sold a sufficient variety of food for us to cook simple suppers in the little kitchen for a couple of nights. The dishwasher did the boring work for us. The heating was fully adjustable, we had a big TV which showed many English speaking programmes. Lapland Safaris were a couple of doors along, who run very good quality excursions, with friendly reps. We dined at an ice restaurant and went husky sledding; both great fun. The resort bars and restaurants ajoined the apartment building and we were 2 minutes walk from the ski lifts...and the main bedroom had beds pointing north, so, as the resort is small and turns out its lights at 10pm (there are still hotel and balcony lights on), we could lie in bed and watch the Aurora Borealis through our window! It couldn't have been more perfect!
I should add that Yllas is a resort split into three parts. There is an infrequent bus that joins them, and on days where weather allows (50% in our case), you can take a gondola to the top of the mountain and ski down to the other side. On our one snowy day, it was a bit blowy, so we decided to take the 15 minute bus journey to investigate the other side. It was like a different day there - blowing a horizontal gale/blizzard! We took a taxi straight back which cost us €32, as the next bus back was in 4 hours. It had cleared up at the Saaga side by then!

Went to Yllas without any skiing experience and to be honest I didnt go for the skiing, i went to be in the setting and just enjoy being in that enviroment, although we did get skiing equipment. I was an absolute beginner and did some cross country skiing which i fully enjoyed. They even light up the paths at night so you can ski at night too.

The traditional resteraunts and pubs nearby serving beer, steaks, reindeer were everything i dreamt lapland would be like.

Staying in a cosy log cabin with an open fire, sauna, right on the trail path for cross country skiing was a pefect week. would definitely do it again. On the 4th day i was walking for dinner and saw the northern lights just to top everything off. Perfect place for couples and families.
