NIce apartments, well kitted out with everything you need. The pool,saunas and steam baths were just what was needed after a day on the slopes. Its our second time staying here and we would definitely come back.

Just a few things to add to what my daughter, Sophiehuts, says in her review. The Cristal de l'Alpe is modern, spacious and comfortable, in a good central location with easy access to the lifts, shops and restaurants. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the facilities (particularly the swimming pool) are excellent. The 17.00 room availability is an... More

Residence is not so close to the pistes, and it is not so clean. But our apartment was nice, clean, modern furnished with good equipped kitchen. We chose the residence because of the SPA,which is undoubted the worst spa we have ever been. Extremely dirty, noisy, crowded, without towels and other SPA amenities. Spa is included to the price but... More

We have returned to here to find many improvements such as direct access to reception (without having to go outside) and a great catering service delivered to the residence. The spa was superb, quality products (decleor) and the therapists were very skilled.
