We had a nice time at the mountain and this was a really unique accomodation. The staff at the front desk were very friendly, depending on who was there the language barrier was a bit challenging at times as our French isn't the greatest. The property and rooms have a very distinct 80s feel to them. But our studio was was cozy, fairly clean and had everything we needed for our stay with the exception of our fireplace not working properly, but not a biggie.
There's some odd things where for our 4 night stay we were given a very small vile to shampoo with a sign that there would be a charge if we needed more. Cleaning service never replaced it but asked at front desk and we were given more and never charged for it. Also like a lot of places there's a no skis in the room policy but here there's also a no boots or poles policy with the threat of a several hundred dollar charge if caught. So each unit had a padlocked storage area in the rooms near the garage. It's a large storage unit with a folding chair to sit down in and get your gear on, but it was a bit of a drag putting on cold boots before heading out.
This is located in what appears to be a struggling alpine village styled after what Intrawest did in the 80s. There's again a very 80s feel but most of the store fronts were empty and it looked like things didn't really work out as planned. However right outside of the lobby is La Brez which was excellent, had killer fondue and service was always warm. Walking across to the hotel by the gondola there was a cool late 70s-ish cocktail lounge that also had decent eats and a lively apre and late night bar scene.
It's a unique experience for sure, picky travelers might have some issues with the accomodations but we rolled with it and enjoyed ourselves. As another reviewer mentioned you really need a car here to get into town for good as there's really nothing other than the gift shop at the big hotel to buy expensive snacks at.
Skier Tip: The front desk sells discounted lift tickets to nearby and very excellent Le Massif!
