We stayed at the Mariandre for a week in July and had a fantastic summer holiday! We had previously skied with Esprit and loved their childcare, the quality of the dining, in fact, pretty much everything about the trip! I can now confidently say that their summer holidays are just as good, with a a much less hurried pace and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere throughout the hotel all week.
Yes, the Mariandre could do with an upgrade to its decor and furnishings, but I think this has happened in the lounge area and all areas are kept clean which is a higher priority for me as a mum. Focus instead on the amazing cuisine (thanks to Chris and his team), the quality childcare and the stunning views. Alpe d'Huez is alive and kicking during the summer months thanks to the biking fraternity(mountain and road), this made for plenty to do out of the hotel and plenty of choice for eating out.
The week we were there, most families had driven out but we opted to fly/drive through Geneva and this worked well. All in all a great trip which we hope to repeat again next year. Thank you Esprit!
