Myself and my husband stayed here on our ‘mini moon’. Our holiday company Ski Collection recommended it due to its great location in the centre of the resort and because it’s one of the best self-catered residences in Alpe d’Huez. We weren’t disappointed! Our apartment was clean and really well-equipped – dishwasher, coffee machine etc. The reception staff couldn’t have... More

First time my family group had been to self catering apartments, normally catered chalets. I found this apartment after looking at tripadvisor. We booked apartment for 10 for our group of 8. Plenty of space, even if we'd had 10. Good kitchen, bathrooms. Central to slopes.

10 of us stayed in 2 apartments in the hotel which worked really well. 6 slept in the smaller apartment and 4 in the larger, using the larger living room and kitchen as a communal area.

The hotel was great. Keep in mind you can't check in till 4. The room for four adults was perfect. Kind of tedious to have to do a check list of every single item in the kitchen when you arrive, but all in all it is well equipped and comfortable. Lovely patio to sit out on. You only get free...

Really good skiing trip, great location, 100m to lifts. Good rooms and a really nice pool area. Reasonable prices and an all round good resort. Would definitely go back again. Good couple of clubs close by as well as ski hire, supermarkets and restaurants and bars.

We booked what they call a 6 sleeper for 3 couples to share for a week and it was completely unsuitable. You get 1 double/king bedroom, a bunk bed (presumably for kids) and then a sleeper couch in the tiny kitchenette/lounge. The kitchenette/lounge is so small that they can't fit a dining room table that can seat 6 because then... More

We arrived late and although we were annoyed by the mess up with transfers this wasn't the fault of the hotel. The apartment was a nice size, but annoying that it has 2 bathrooms but only 1 toilet between 6 people- which wasn't ideal to say the least. The people that slept on the sofa beds got bed bug bites-... More
