Jamie and his team run this place like clockwork! Nothing is too much trouble and they seem to work around the clock. As usual Esprit proved a great hit with the children, great nannies and child care staff. First time in Alpe d'Huez and it really is as sunny as they say!! One of the best resorts for mountain views... More

I stayed at the Mariandre at the end of Jan / start of Feb with my daughter for a weeks skiing holiday. Having only previously been on "adult" ski holidays, I was somewhat apprehensive as to how this would be going on my own with a just turned three year old, as my husband wasn't able to come with us...

The staff and the lovely food were the making of this holiday. The perfect mix of friendly and professional and always incredibly helpful. My 5 year old daughter loved the childcare staff and I was most impressed by the quality of the childre's teas and my vegetarian options. My "foodie" husband was also impressed with the standard of his meals.... More

What a place the staff are great and work very hard and make you feel welcome. The nannies are so nice my boys loved them all. The room was big and very nice to be in. I would ask not to stay on ground floor could be loud. The food was great very well presented if you didn't like anything... More

Family of 5; 11,10 & 6. From the minute we arrived the staff were exceptional and that did not change throughout our stay, Jamie and his assistant Manager in particular were very professional. I had previously read that the rooms were tired and the chalet needed attention. The chalet is clean, comfortable and the bathrooms new - its not luxury... More

This was our third Esprit holiday and was really enjoyable for us and our two children (3 and 6). The hotel was lovely, a great location (with a very short walk to the lifts and skiing back to the door), well maintained and the staff couldn't do enough to help. Always cheerful and great with the kids. The rooms were... More

This was the first time we had taken our two boys skiing and to be honest I was fairly anxious about how much hassle that would be with a 2 and a 4 year old. But we couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would 100% recommend both this hotel and Esprit to anyone. We flew from Bristol to... More

From the start to the finish Jamie and his team were nothing less than excellent!! The coach pulls up after a two hour transfer and the staff are waiting to get your bags in for you, and inside there is tea, coffee cakes hot soup, stuff for the travel weary kids who are instantly revitalised by food and kid friendly...

I would like to completely echo Danny's comments below. We were at the hotel the same week and we thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the hotel. It was our first experience of an Esprit holiday and sadly our boy will be 13 next next year so he won't be able to partake in the Esprit child/ ski care (I don't... More
