We stayed a week in tignes with breakfast and dinner at alpina. The breakfast was really really baz - we actualy had to bring our own extra food to get enough for a full day of skiing. The dinnner was ok, but the service was very bad except for the nice bartender.

I booked this apartment/hotel via Crystal ski holidays. I paid a lot of money for an apartment for 3 for my exclusive use. The rooms were small scruffy and poorly furnished and cooking facilities were very basic. Room was cleaned daily and staff were nice. Breakast was very simple but adequate, evening buffet was typical simple French fare and was... More

I am being kind when I say a dump. Arrived at 15.00 but could not get in until 17.00. Very officious receptionist who could not care anything about customer service. Room very small. Three beds one in the hall so no room for luggage. Ski locker tiny so ski is and snowboard would not fit in. Room clean enough but... More

This was by far the worst hotel i have ever stayed in. The room was small, scruffy and the shower was so small you could not wash yourself once you were in it. Also the toilet seat was broken. The swimming pool area was black with mould on the walls and we did not dare use it. The bar and... More

So after mixed reviews on here I was nervous about the hotel. We are a family group of 7 and had two rooms. I believe it is fairly easy to understand the mixed reviews as it is completely related to your room. Our room was tiny, the beds nearly touched the wall at the end of the room. For three... More

The Alpina has everything a skier could require of a hotel. Cozy clean room, comfy beds, endless hot water, a typical French restaurant serving lots of traditional food, a short walk to the ski slopes and a sauna and swimming pool to ease the leg muscles afer a hard day on the slopes. Having the extra bedroom (we chose to... More

When I read some of the reviews I was very worried as I had already booked my holiday. I was so concerned that I spoke to the Chrystal rep on the journey to the resort. He assured me that I would find the hotel to be fine & that he could not understand why it had some bad reviews. The... More

It was relatively cheap and booked with Crystal so you take a risk, but flipping heck , our hotel room is an old self catering room with a fridge that you cannot open because it is too near the bed. If H&S visited this place they would have a great time , lots for them to do electrically. The Restaurant... More

Should have read a few more reviews prior to booking as room was so cramped you couldnt even open the fridge door more than eight inches without hitting the bed. There was a table in the room but you couldnt get to it without climbing over the bed. Towels were changed only once .shower was a wet room but water... More
