Natacha & crew were very friendly and provided faultless service.
The vegetarian food was delicious and there was plenty of it. The veggy lasagne was the best I've had ANYWHERE!! I particularly enjoyed having eggs in the morning rather than the cold continental breakfast.
The room was spacious and clean with ensuite bathroom and nice view of the hills. The sauna had proper heat, unlike many places I've stayed in (addition of a steam room might be a good idea). Despite having soggy toes at the end of the day, ski boots were dry every morning so boot warmers were top notch. The seating areas are cosy and there's a pool table. The swimming pool was warm and not too small; robes were provided which is a nice touch. Free WiFi at reception and first floor was very useful. Along the corridor on my floor there's tea/coffee table which saves you having to go to the dining area.
Taking the van to/from the lift doesn't take long and good for prepping/unwinding. The town is quiet, not much apres. The Kronplatz ski area was good with enough to ski in a week - cruisey blues and some good red runs for intermediates. You have to take 3 gondolas to get to Kronplatz, so don't leave it too late to catch the last gondola back. The last public ski bus back from Alta Badia area leaves a bit early for my liking.
I'm definitely planning to visit again and highly recommend Mountainsun's Diamant. Next time, I'm planning to visit Hidden Valley and Santa Croce.
