The hotel was great. Keep in mind you can't check in till 4. The room for four adults was perfect. Kind of tedious to have to do a check list of every single item in the kitchen when you arrive, but all in all it is well equipped and comfortable. Lovely patio to sit out on. You only get free...

Really good skiing trip, great location, 100m to lifts. Good rooms and a really nice pool area. Reasonable prices and an all round good resort. Would definitely go back again. Good couple of clubs close by as well as ski hire, supermarkets and restaurants and bars.

We booked what they call a 6 sleeper for 3 couples to share for a week and it was completely unsuitable. You get 1 double/king bedroom, a bunk bed (presumably for kids) and then a sleeper couch in the tiny kitchenette/lounge. The kitchenette/lounge is so small that they can't fit a dining room table that can seat 6 because then... More

We arrived late and although we were annoyed by the mess up with transfers this wasn't the fault of the hotel. The apartment was a nice size, but annoying that it has 2 bathrooms but only 1 toilet between 6 people- which wasn't ideal to say the least. The people that slept on the sofa beds got bed bug bites-... More

Really fantastic apartments, spotlessly clean, spacious with everything you could possibly need for a self catering stay. Only 500yds from one of the nicest grill restaurants in town, and one of the best, chilled out bars. Super close to a ski lift, and with a lovely spa to relax in at the end of an energetic day on the slopes.... More

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

Just got back from a great skiing trip staying at Le Cristal de l'Alpe. The stay here was almost perfect with a few small things that could be improved on.

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
