We went skiing last week and stayed in the interconnecting room in the petit claret (opposite the main club med building), which was a three person room, one double room and one single room.
ski in ski out
good ski locker room with ventilated lockers to dry out boots.
lunch at the hotel was very convenient.
comfortable double bed
good breakfasts with very nice bread.
good variety of food
short single bed
double sized duvet on the single bed, so it kept slipping off the bed as it was so heavy.
uncomfortable square pillows
not really an interconnecting room - the bed was in front of the door; it could be moved, but was difficult as is was a tight fit, and you still have to climb over the bed to get to the door.
double bed too wide for the room.
the petit claret felt very dated and the staircase and lift were very dirty - more effort put into the main building.
stains on the towels and bed sheets
mugs and plates were chipped and many mugs were dirty.
cutlery sometimes dirty
glasses in the room were not cleaned properly
bathroom in single room very cramped and dirty in the corners
mixed food for lunch and dinner - some very good, some awful. veg overcooked, avoid beef.
not so good for vegetarians - lots of things had meat in, including the potato salad and mixed veg.
ski lesson sizes far too big (said max 12 on the website, but it was more like 12-15 in some classes)
some instructors very good, but some not good (especially those for the teenage lessons) and were more like guides - did not teach at all, went very quickly and didn't stop often to wait for the slower skiiers.
Overall it was ok but not worth the price and expected better.
