4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

I'm surprised by other comments. We were 2 families of 4 and 5. We found it spacious compared to previous ski holidays, although 6 would have been a squeeze. It's standard practice for skiing for someone to sleep on a pullout sofa-bed. Hot inside.
Ideal location- ski in and out.
The reception staff were delightful and helpful. WiFi was adequate.

I was part of a group of six individuals and we received an apartment to accommodate us all. The receptionist told us that we would have two double beds and two single beds, but once we got to our apartment we discovered that in fact one of the single beds was also the sofa in the living room. It's what the French call a pull-out sofa.

The apartment itself was clean and well equipped, the only downside being the blankets and the very thin walls. You could literally hear every word from people staying in the above or below apartments.

But the worst thing about the property is the Internet connection. You'd believe that in the 21st century the Internet is a commodity such as electricity or running water, but rest assured it is not the case with L'Adonis. The so called free wi-fi at the reception worked only if a maximum of two people were connected and when we tried to pay the 15 EUR to get Internet access in our apartment the receptionist kindly refused us saying that she was already refunding other guests due to technical difficulties. In any case even getting the paid connection would have only allowed for two simultaneous users. Which is lame.

Other than that I was pleased to be within easy access to the Bruyeres slopes. Would I return? Probably not.

Dear customer,
Regarding the wifi, we suffer the work done this summer by France Telecom.
They replaced all cables from the network in Les Menuires by cables lower capacity.
We therefore currently engaged in works to increase the power of our facility and solve this problem which penalizes many our internal operations.
Hoping to welcome you again so that you can judge the improvements made.

This place was fabulous, huge apartment, ski in ski out, really friendly staff and very easy to get to shops etc. The resort its self is not hugely lively but this was ideal for what we wanted. Whilst we were there the whole place had a problem with electrics, butthe owners kept us informed. Swimming Pool, Sauna and Steam room was fabulous after a hard days skiing!

Good points: fab location for the slopes. lovely mountain view and the appartment served its purpous. Nice pool and near the restaurants. rooms were a good size.
bad points: rooms were overheated in the morning. we had to queue for over an hour to.check in and we were told our rooms would be ready late in the afternoon even though guests have to.clean own appartment or you are fined 80euros! they also turn the electricity off in the communal areas and the day of our.departre we had to walk down three flights of stairs in the dark with heavy cases! as lift was turned off.too so bring.a torch. staff are unhelpful and.you have to make your own beds. bedding was also marked with stains.

Room Tip: The 2 bed appartments sleep 6 but i wouldnt recommend more than 4 max as they are small.

I have just came back from a ski trip with friends and we were very happy with this hotel. We had a 3 bedroom apartment for the 6 of us, but on the description is it written that it can accommodate up to six people - I would not recommend it as 2 persons would have to sleep in the living room. Location is really great: you can ski 50 meters till the cabin, and you can as well come back on your skis. The only disadvantage was the "lack of privacy" in the sense that the walls are very think and you could hear everything from any other room of the apartment. Swimming pool/sauna/hammam working every day and opened as of 4pm. Don't forget to bring/buy cleaning products, toilet paper, garbage bags and dish washer products.
And if you want to have bread in front of your door when you wake up, you can order it from: www.breadinbed.com - we used this service during our entire vacation and we LOVED IT!

We stayed at L'Adonis two years in a row. It is located at the outskirts of Les Menuires (Balcones de Bruyeres) so it's nice and quite, no load people going to disco's. You can ski from the appartement building right down to the elevator, but you'll have to be a seasoned skier to do so.

The rooms are spacious and all have a great balcony, the view is amazing, you'll see snow and ski pistes out of every window.

We are just back from a week in Les Chalets de l'Adonis in Les Menuires/ Les Bruyères, booked via Madame Vacances.

Bad things (THE LIST IS LONG!!!):
- We must have been one of very few "normal" couples/families in the residence. The Adonis was taken over by hordes of students/youngsters partying until the wee hours of the morning and showing no respect for their neighbours' sleep or communal areas. I understand that it is common practice for ski chalets to rent out unlet apartments to big groups on the cheap, but when you expect 4*, you don't think you'll end up in a youth hostel atmosphere.
- There were thugs (residents) smoking dope most nights in the unguarded reception area, and nothing was done about it though the manager had been told.
- In general the flats are very badly insulated (from the cold - draft from the windows -, and from the noise - when somebody has a pee in the apartment above yours, you wake up!)
- No wifi in the apartments - we were told access was only available in the reception area by a lovely log fire - the fire was never on!
- The car park is not covered and is quite far and uncleared (snow/ice) making logging all your luggage rather perilous
- Swimming pool: the stench when you open the door to the swimming-pool put us right off!
- The bedding provided was soiled and uncomfortable (too small for the large bed). Small towels, and not enough of them. No tea towels.
- No foreign TV channels
- No DVDs to borrow from reception - bring your own
- Ski in/ski out rather perilous if you're not a seasoned skier
- We took advantage of the Madame Vacances offer to prebook/prepay our ski equipment: the deal is with a rental shop which is quite far away (there is a shop on the ground floor of the residence, not sure why the deal is not with them??), and when we got there, they had not kept skis for us so we were given old equipment ("Sorry but 150 students came this morning and took away all our stock", we were told.)
- Be aware that the chalet is in the Bruyères hamlet, with only a few shops (including a deli/traiteur with very poor/unfresh products - husband got "Delhi belly") and mediocre restaurants. Les Menuires proper is a bit better but not easy to reach (the shuttle service was unreliable - didn't come every 20 minutes as scheduled)

Good things:
- We got a 2-bedroom apartment, which was ample for all the stuff you tend to have on a skiing holiday
- The balcony is very pleasant, south-facing, but we only had 2 days of sunshine so did not enjoy it much
- The young Franco-English receptionist is delightful
- Being in the 3 Vallées is a plus
- A lovely cinema close-by showing all the latest movies including some in English

Needless to say, we are very disappointed and won't be going there again! We could have done so much better for our money!
