As it is pointed out in most reviews, the location is good, just two steps to the slopes. I would not say that this is advantage that the residence has, as most other residences and hotels have such location in Mottaret.
You will be very lucky if you will accommodate on the first floor. But we had an apartment just under the roof what means to lift up on the floor E + walk up the stairs, moreover the corridors, which are like open balconies, are not cleaned after snow and you will have to walk on the ice, which is really dangerous. You’ll have to walk every day this route when you are in ski shoes before skiing and after skiing, and when on your arrival and departure you have your luggage and ski/snowboard… Ok, value for money.
However the biggest claim is to staff and management of the residence, who are not responsible for anything what is happening on the territory and if during your stay you have troubles - “it is not their (management’s) problem”. Noise and screams of drunk young people will accompany your stay from evenings till mornings. We experienced a very bad incident in one of the evenings and neither receptionists nor police even did not help us: reception was closed at that time, and police (we made a call on number 17) did not speak English and did not come. So we stayed with our problem on our own. Next morning we informed the staff at the reception and the management about the happened incident, but they even did not excuse and they were quite rude with us. It was the first (and hope the last) time in my life when I had such disrespectful treatment to me.
All in all, if you are older than 26, if you come with your family, with little (and not little) children, if you care about your safety and calmness, do not stay here! Better pay a little more and choose proper accommodation that won’t spoil your holidays. Have self-respect.
