Family of 5 (kids 10, 11, 13). The transfer from Geneva was 1 hour 20, very easy. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel so welcome, the chalet is simply gorgeous and magical as it was dressed for the festive period (our stay was 28 Dec to 2 Jan). The layout is easy to get around. Beautiful bar and lounge area serving a range of foods. We had two interconnecting junior suites which are huge and have plenty of room. TV has British channels and ability to beam your phone for netflix etc. Wifi very good. Games rooms for kids and adults. There are several restaurants in the hotel and plenty of great restaurants in town which the hotel can book. If coming during February half term, I would suggest booking ahead. The spa is phenomenal. I would highly recommend emailing them to book in advance especially at peak times like February half term or Christmas and New Year as they get booked ahead of time so avoid being disappointed - there was little to no availability for walk in’s. The pool is lovely too. Dressing gowns and slippers are all in the rooms. Lift passes - get from hotel reception. We hadn’t pre-booked skis but this was straightforward. There is a rental place at the top of the mountain. The train stop is directly opposite the chalet and takes 15 mins to the slopes. Very easy. I would also recommend booking a locker in the ski shop so you don’t have to traipse with skis and boots / it’s a godsend and about 25chf per day and it fits 6 persons gear. Well worth it. We hired an instructor from ESS in advance. There are several restaurants on the slopes but a very popular one is Hotel du Lac / again book ahead or book for the following day. Great family restaurant. All in all it’s an amazing hotel with top notch service - you cannot go wrong and we will return.

Geneva, Switzerland1 contribution
October may be off-season in the Swiss Alps, but with the views and facilities the was a real weekend luxury getaway. Very friendly and relaxed service. Rooms were spacious with a terrace and beautiful sunset views over the Alps. With sunshine and up to 25 C, we unfortunately had no time for the pool and spa facilities. Recommend instead the train up to the mountains - the station is one minute away and takes you right up to pristine hiking areas. For an aperitif, either the hotel terrace or walk down to the Ptit Chalet to mingle with the locals. For dinner, both the hotel restaurant and Ecovets (10 min taxi-ride away) serves excellent local fare (October is game season!). For lunch, have the hotel try to book at the Miroir de l'Argentine above nearby Gryon. Spectaulcar surroundings.

The hotel is nice, and the staff at reception welcoming. The room (a "mountain-inspired Junior Suite") was large and nice, although the view was mostly on a path were several walkers would regularly stop a few meters away from our window. The pool and sauna/steam bath are also large, modern and well decorated. On the negative side, impossible to book a treatment at the spa, it was fully booked - fortunately, we found slots at a nearby hotel. The shower cabin in our room has not been cleaned at all during our stay. And at breakfast, we were told every day that the tables next to the window were occupied, but nobody sat there during the hour or so when we had breakfast. Sad that these few regular issues lower the overall rating of the hotel.

Dear Francois-Serge, We thank you for your positive messages and for sharing your experience at the Chalet RoyAlp Hotel & Spa with us. As our spa is very popular, we always offer the possibility to book in advance as to ensure availability for the treatments of your choice. We do not have any complaint made during your stay on file concerning the shower. We have also checked in our system which shows that your room had been cleaned during your stay. Please do not hesitate to alert the reception during your future stays with us if any problems occur so that we can ensure that they are resolved rapidly. We are sorry to hear about your experience at our breakfast and will alert the departement about this issue.

Wonderful location and service. Food was excellent. Service and staff impeccable. Rooms spacious with spectacular view. Spa is great and massage is good. The furnitures in the room are a bit dated and there is no USB port, but you will not care about it because other things are so top-notched.

Monsieur Roarke wrote a review Dec 2022
Taveuni Island, Fiji16 contributions8 helpful votes
The writer has stayed at this hotel three times in the past two years. Once during the summer months, Twice during winter (alone and with family). The hotel is solid and never fails to make the grade. The food, service and atmosphere have always been to a good standard. The rooms are finished in a traditionally charming but modern alpine style. The rooms have timber floors and cupboards, good hanging and flat storage for ski/hike gear, a work table, and balconies with seating. The beds are of medium stiffness. The rooms are generally quiet but those facing the porte cochere can be a little noisy for light sleepers when it gets busy during the holiday periods. The room can be ventilated via a tilting verandah door. There is no mechanical ventilation except in the bathroom. Lighting in the bathroom and room is good. The bathrooms are generously proportioned and tastefully finished in traditional slate. The bathrooms and bedrooms have underfloor heating which can be adjusted. The bathroom have a good sized heated towel rail for drying wet sports garments. The hotel has a good breakfast buffet spread across two rooms. Dinner is a table d'hote menu or a la carte provided at reasonable prices. Children are well accommodated with an early dinner time and menu. The chef is very willing to accommodate children's dining predilections. The main dining room lacked some atmosphere, perhaps due to covid spacing requirements. The service is however excellent. The staff were all charming, speaking many languages, and of different ages and ethnicities. The hotel also has a charming, traditionally decorated, very popular raclette restaurant with an a la carte menu. The hotel's bar was charming and popular meeting place for both lunch and dinner. It was close to the children's play room so that parent could enjoy a drink whilst the children entertained themselves. The menu was tedious but according to management due for overhaul post-covid as a result of guest suggestion. The hotel's indoor pool, jacuzzi and spa were very good and a family favourite. Our children really loved spending time in the pool/jacuzzi. The gym is also good. The hotel had a great games and general recreation room for the children close to the lobby. Parking at the hotel was free outside. There was a small charge to park inside. The hotel is close to the funicular that goes to the ski slopes. Skiers can ski back to the hotel after skiing with ease. The only negative is the ski kindergarten is about a ten minute walk. Overall the hotel is good value, clean, tidy and quiet. The staff are seasoned, warm and accommodating. There is nothing grandiose or ostentatious about the hotel. It is a sophisticated yet understated establishment executed to a very high standard.

We discovered this beautifully appointed hotel via Buyclub.ch. Thank you Buy Club! We celebrated a special birthday for our daughter this summer and it was just the perfect place. The rooms were spacious with beautiful bathrooms and incredible views. Our balcony was the perfect spot to enjoy the views. The indoor pool was heavenly and the steam room and saunas also lovely. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They were all wonderful and made our stay very pleasant. We would definitely return, especially if the offer came up again on BuyClub. Thank you so much for a memorable stay.

Clean facility with good access to col de croix and other areas for biking. Restaurant was good. Be careful not to get the only room without a terrace or balcony! Its a shame not to have access to a terrace. Also, be sure to ask about parking options. We were never told that parking costs 24 chf per day and had the surprise at check out. Service was good. Spa area nice but unfortunately no outdoor pool area and small sun bathing area. Martina in the Spa area was the most hospitable and helpful staff giving great recommendations for alternative dining in the area, always pleasant and always ready to help.

We had a nice and comfortabnle room, in this hotel ideally located for skiing or simply enjoying the moutains by foot. The spa area is nice but small and has a nice pool. The staff was nice. The restaurant "Roche Grise" offers great quality food. The room service is also great. We enjoyed our stay here.
