I have been to the Olympic Village in Sestriere twice already and I am happy to notice their effort to improve the service and the overall experience.
The apartments are very nice, full of light and with a lovely terrace overlooking the mountains.
They provide daily service (bathroom, vacuuming, bed making etc.) and the bad sheets are changed twice during the day. The common parts are spotless and pretty well kept.
Just a few steps from the departure of the chair lifts, the village is a big complex with several restaurants, bars, swimming pool, gym, supermarket and beauty center.
The ski experience it’s just amazing: you have access to an incredible number of slopes being a system of different ski station all linked together. All slopes are VERY well groomed and prepared.
We have tried the "a la carte" (DiVino Olimpo" restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday and we were very surprised by the quality of the food, of the service and the prices. the bar and the WINE BAR are really good and the personnel nice and helpful.
Unfortunately, a friend had his ski-helmet and ski mask stolen in the ski-room after he forgot them for not more than 10 minutes and the receptionist we talked with couldn’t care less (a bit of sympathy is free and makes things MUCH easier)
The reception is the only part of the experience that deserve improvement: the lack of consistency of the level of service provided is quite frustrating: you need to be lucky and deal with a nice and helpful person, otherwise, as happened to us, you get a "don't know/don't care" attitude that will make you upset.
