We stayed at Altiport Hotel for a week in March 2011, and really enjoyed our stay. We had booked a stay including breakfast and a 3 course dinner every night. The food was really good and the variation of themes high - the service was flexible and we could make changes to the menu if wanted. It did however puzzle us that everything on the menu was in English - except the daily 3 course meal, which only was in French, for non French speakers this was a challenge, especially as the staff were not very good in English.
The rooms at Altiport are not big and could do with an upgrade - especially the bathrooms are very 70' style. We only had a bathtub and it was not possible to shower standing up - this was extremely inconvenient. The beds were really good - we slept like babies despite the fact that we were not able to turn down the heating, we asked the reception to fix this 3 times with no luck... so when you leave the window open at night it seems excessive that the heating is working overtime....
The hotel has the best location in the 3 valleys - in the middle valley you have easy access to both Val Thorens and Courcevel and the piste leading to the hotel is nice and easy when you are coming back from a long day skiing. We finished every day with a drink at the top of Saulire in the sun and went down after the closure of the lifts, which meant we had the slopes to our selves all the way - priceless :o)
If you are looking for a laid back holiday - skiing the best area in the world and eating good food, this is the place for you. If however you want to go out - afterskiing or at night, the Altiport is a bit too out of the way.
For lunch we can really recommend (remember to book a table in advance):
Bel Air in Courcevel
Chalet de la Marine in Val Thorens
Le Coeur de Cristal in Meribel
