Just been for our second visit and it was brilliant. When we arrived last year in March I was a little disappointed with the rooms initially. Quite dated as many people have mentioned. However...! The staff, atmosphere, food, proximity to the slopes and general warm fuzziness of the place more than made up for it.
And this year we were offered newly refurbished rooms, so now all was truly fabulous down to the last detail. I was a little worried about going back after such a great time last year - you never know what the staff are going to be like from year to year, or if the chef will be as good as last year's, but we were thrilled to find that everything was still as fabulous as before, only now with brand new rooms, di-vi-ne showers and a better view than last year, plus family rooms rather than 2 separate ones.
The staff are fun, helpful and friendly. Matt the manager always seems to have time to chat at length, the stream of wine at dinner was generous and unending (and yummy), food was at least as good as last year (oh! those lamb rillettes!!!) and the entertainment even better, what a blast on both quiz night and "the box" night. Kids were happy as anything, hardly saw them the entire week. Ski school organised by Mark Warner were also very good, apart from one little hiccup with a French teacher who seemed to be lacking in the modern teaching skills department (she said to our 7 year old daughter on day one "Well, at the start of the day you were the best student, but now you are the worst!"). Apart from that all the ski instructors were never less than fabulous, both at Evo2 and ESF.
If you are looking for a great relaxed family holiday, do yourself a favour and look no further!
If I had to make a suggestion or two, it would be to make the "front" door to our two family rooms lockable, so that we could keep the bedroom doors open in the night, and a few extra electricity sockets would not go amiss as well as some new bed linen to complement those fab new rooms.
The refurbishments should be finished after the summer, so you can safely disregard the general moaning about dated rooms!
Even numbered rooms offer fab views. Next year there will be family lofts on the 5th floor, we'v...
