Went here for a week on 16/03/13. We were in a group of 8 friends/couples.
Rooms were small but very clean and plenty of storage. 2 of our rooms had twin beds and 2 also came with a spare bed. There is hardly any floor space but everything you need. Shower was lovely and rooms cleaned everyday to a high standard.
We have been with club med before (les arcs) but the food and drink here could not be faulted. Beer on tap, good wine and a choice of cocktails, mojito, Cosmo, piña colada etc. even included amaretto and baileys. The bar/ disco area is large and spacious with numerous different areas to sit. It appears to be recently modernised. The only down side was on some evenings children running around, playing hide and seek between the tables. Perhaps would have been good to have a children's area or parents who didn't let them jump on the furniture.
Food was amazing, had everything from fillet beef, duck, pork, ribs, mussels, frogs legs, salmon, prawns, crab, lobster.
Lunch was equally as good. Plenty of soups, salads, burgers, pizza, pasta as well as the more traditional French dishes.
Breakfast again could not be faulted, all styles of eggs, omelette, pancakes, cereals, pastries, breads and cheese.
And deserts all week were exceptional!
Freshly made crepes each afternoon and I would highly recommend the hot chocolate.
The hotel is not quite ski in/ski out. From the boot room you have to take a flight of stairs upto the level with the shops and then a walk through the snow up a short path, 15 metres or so which takes you to the bottom of the village chair lift.
A few in our group did ski school as beginners and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The ski area is large and plently of areas to explore even for more advanced skiers. Did not get bored at all.
To get back to the hotel at the bottom of the chair lift is more tricky. There are two options, a very long windy green run which we did not even attempt as it was busy with lots of ski school groups and children. The other option is the back run which was fine for the more experienced skier. Everyone else in between took the chair lift down and by the end of the week it looked like a common choice especially on tired legs.
The staff in the hotel were all so friendly and energetic. They were also very helpful and even lined the road to wave us off at 6am on the last day.
The only other thing to add is that wifi cost 20€ for the week. This gives You a log in and password which can be used on upto 4 devices and despite what they say did work on iPads/iPhones.
The bus stop to the village and other gondolas/other side of the resort is directly outside he hotel. It is free, runs every 15 mins until about 7pm and is very easy to use.
Would defiantly recommend and would definitely return!! Excellent week, fabulous food and lovely hotel. Well done to Nadia the chef de village!
