Having stayed all over Europe Snowboarding you almost accept it you want to go on a budget you are going to stay in very sub standard accommodation this is most prevalent in France. if you want luxury you are certainly going to know you have paid for it.
Although I was surprised at state of this "hotel" with unhelpful staff, cramped dirty rooms the place insisted on you putting a deposit for 300 Euros for which you have to complete a room itinerary which is barely legable and anything you miss off you will be billed for, lost key to be charged at 40 euro, towel and sheet deposits deposits at 7 Euro per person and TV rental in addition.
The location is isolation with no Apre Ski and if you are foolish enough to venture away from the only tiny bar getting back is an absolute nightmare as the Taxi refuse to run, the buses stop before midnight and any hotel shuttle will simply lie and drop you off somewhere with no intention of returning.
The icing on the dirty unhelpful massively overpriced cake was, we left two boards outside my room for 10 mins (yes I know) and they were gone, after going to reception we found from other guests we were the second people in 2 days, I was enraged by the attitude of the staff in this crisis and the fact with the amount of money they rake in not a single solitary penny had been spent on Hotel Security such as a single CCTV camera.
All in all don't go here the fact it seems cheaper at base cost is an illusion and there is no value for money in these resorts but simple racketeering.
Only Positives, the owner or Monca's Bar and Cafe is a good guy and you can Ski in/out.
Oh and the Holiday was booked with Direct Ski who reps were good guys and we landed in Grenoble possible the worst Arrivals and baggage area in the developed world.
And by the way I don't even complain ordinarily about stuff...
