Just got back from staying in a 1 bedroom 4 person apartment in this residence. Firstly, from our experience of budget self-catering, we always book a 3 or 4 person apartment for the two of us. It is very much 'you get what you pay for', so people who like a bit of space need to bear that in mind. We have been in a 2 person studio in Val Thorens that made this apartment look palatial!
Hauts du Rogoney is ski in/out, snow permitting, which this February it certainly was. It can be a bit of a schuss to the main lifts, but if you time it right, there won't be a queue at the nearby drag lift, which gets you up the slope high enough to ski to the other lifts.The ski lockers in the block are spacious and well managed.
Our apartment had been recently refurbished, with lovely warm fabric for the curtains, a brand new sofa bed, new hob, fridge & dishwasher. The furniture was all wooden and in keeping with the style of the residence, and the lighting was tasteful. The heating was amazing- very controllable, and even some underfloor heating. (In fact our one and only annoyance was that the bedroom was too warm at night!) There was always plenty of very hot water, which can be an issue in any kind of accommodation. Some of the apartments in this residence are privately owned, which does tend to affect how a place is looked after - there is a resident caretaker.
Something it helps to know about is that you check in at a separate residence, which is about 15 minutes walk away.
We had an issue with parking, which our tour operator had told us could not be guaranteed, but the lovely receptionist, Abla, helped us with that. She advised us to contact her direct about parking (or anything) if we were to use the same tour operator again. In all honesty, we would probably book the accommodation directly with Odalys should we go to Val d'Isere again.
Surely this is the ultimate recommendation - we would definitely go back to these apartments, and felt that this accommodation contributed to a truly memorable ski holiday.
