We travelled through a package with Crystal Ski and stayed 23rd-30th March 2013.
The photos on the Crystal ski and Langley website were taken from very good angles to make the place look bigger than it was but all travel companies seem to do that these days.
Holiday got off to a disastrous start with flight problem by Jet2, to cut a very long story short it took us 20 hrs to do what should`ve been a 5 hr maximum journey! We finally arrived at the hotel at 11.30 pm, we quickly unpacked and the staff offered us some home-made soup which was amazing and gave us a well needed pint even though the bar was closed by the time we got there.
Its always a but strange arriving in the dark so the next morning we were pleased to see the view from the balcony was amazing, lovely view over the frozen lake and over to Val Claret.
The reviews on here about the food were right, so much choice at breakfast, scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, meats, pate, porridge, cereals, breads, fruits, nuts, juices, yoghurts, everything you could need to set you up for the day. At 8.15 am every day the staff did a little talk about the weather conditions expected for the day, temperature and what was happening in the bar that night.
The food at evening meal was brilliant as good as restaurant quality, a couple of times we asked the staff to pass on our compliments to the chef. We travelled with another couple and one of them was vegetarian, the staff always rustled something else up for her and it always looked lovely. There were free soft drinks and wine with the meal and there was never a problem for the staff to bring you more if needed. Every night the waiter would ask how you were and if you'd had a good day which was a nice touch. There was only one night we didn't fancy the menu so we popped down the road to Bagus Cafe Restaurant and had pizzas and fondue, it was really nice.
We ate at lunchtimes at Loop bar, nice burgers and chilli, Jam Bar did lovely ciabatta sandwiches and paninis, also the best hot chocolate. The pizza stand next door to Skiset do really nice pizzas, the 4 of us shared one at lunch one day, but it was as bit nippy sitting outside.
Best pubs for apres were The Marmot Arms next door to Jam Bar (the staff were crazy) €7.20 for 2 pintts of stella which was quite cheap and Loop bar as they had a band on couple of times we were there.
There was a market on a Thursday and I bought some Beaufort cheese which was really nice, they have all the samples out to try first and the staff are helpful, there were a lot of French buying cheese so I reckoned it must've been good if the locals were buying it.
We only went out a couple of nights as we were shattered so mainly drank in the hotel after our meal, the good thing was you could eat up until 9 pm so more time for apres pints before the grub. The bar was alright in the hotel, reasonably priced for a ski resort and plenty of choice they even did cocktails! We did the music quiz run by the hotel one night which was a laugh and we didn't have much trouble getting on the free wifi, the best signal was in the room behind the bar where most of the staff seemed to hang out of an evening.
Although the hotel was a bit outdated decor wise it was clean, tidy, the rooms were done every day and the heating was always on to get stuff dried if you needed to. There was a large boot room off reception were you could leave your ski or snowboard boots and your helmets and snowboard every night. They also had a ski locker for every room but snowboards didn't fit in so just left then in the boot room. The only problem was the only lift that worked seemed a bit temperamental at times and we were on the highest floor so that was a bit of a pain as some lazy people seemed to be getting it up just one floor!
All the staff seemed Swedish and were all very pleasant and friendly, the morning we left at 4am we got given a packed lunch for the journey to the airport which was another nice touch.
I'd definitely return to Tignes 2100 and definitely stay at this hotel again, although I think I'd book it independently rather than through a package. Tignes is brilliant for people who have some experience of skiing/boarding as there are loads of blue runs and a few free lifts that you don't need a pass for, this was only my second boarding holiday and the blue runs were great although quite busy.
