Having just returned I wanted to advise people travelling what to expect. We travelled with Thomsons which is also part of Crystal the reps on site were brilliant. hotel check in was a pain and did seem to take forever which will happen when you are dropped of in a coach. Yes we had to pay 100 euro deposit but had no problem getting it back, the rooms were very large and very comfey. There are a few cracks and broken tiles, thats what happens when people walk around in ski boots even when asked not to. the linen and towels and beds were very very clean and the kitchen had more than enough equipment. The ski slopes were right outside the door and the hotel pool was lovely for the kids for a break, small but fun, there is also a gym and exercise classes and the on site supermarket was very good for bits and pieces. The place is a bit like a rabbit warren but like any where only takes a few days to work out the quickest routes. we have already booked to go back next half term. Oh also the extreme ski school is based there and they are fantastic for lessons. My one warning, don't go for the half board option we had a free meal there and would rather we had not bothered it was not to our liking there are lovely resturants in the town which is a walk up a steep hill rather walk up the hill at night and ski to the door than the other way round.
