“Clever & efficient but dated & small apartments in Val Claret”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Stayed here in April 2013 (as well as in 2002) as we have access through a family member who has a time-share here.

THE GOOD: The apartments are very cleverly designed to fit lots of stuff into a very tight space - a functional kitchen (except oven), a lounge with dining table and sofa which rolls easily out into a double bed at night, two bunk beds, lots of storage areas. We ate most meals here, bringing a fair number of supplies from the lowlands but topping up at the bakery and grocery store across the street. The cheese shops will lend you a raclette oven for the night. And obviously, being in Val Claret means you are well placed for the skiing, which is what we really came for. And a nice view out the window.

THE BAD: The apartment we last stayed in had a mouldy smell coming out of the bathroom. The building is definitely a 60s 70s era creation, and the minor amendments over the years can't hide that. The ski lockers near the reception are dark and require cramming into narrow spaces. There's not much in the way of common spaces.

THE NORMAL: This isn't a hotel with maid service, it is a holiday residence, so you get handed your clean sheets and stuff upon arrival and make your own beds, and daily cleaning (and a big clean and inventory at the end) is up to you. Kitchen supplies are quite good but if you need special stuff do bring them.

Room Tip: Reception is on floor 0 (zero), and the hotel goes up to +4 and down to -4. We usually stay on the...

I am sorry that we have write this review. But we are not satisfied with our stay at Maeva Residence Grande Motte en Val Claret. In our booking confirmation it says that beds are made up upon arrival and that there is daily cleaning. That is not what we got. We had to make up our beds upon arrival. Old blankets and synthetic sheets and no pillows. And we never got the daily cleaning and on the day of departure the staff in the reception made us vacuum clean both studios, and loose valuable skiing time. We are adults and not young tourists and we left the apartments in very nice shape and will not accept such a bad service. We had several discussions with a young girl in the reception. She was NOT AT ALL service minded and used all her energy on not giving us a good stay. We asked for help with the internet and she was rude and not helpful at all. After 3 days she admitted that she was wrong and gave us what we had paid for. By then it was Thursday and and for some reason she really was rude to my sister on the day of departure, where she made her vacuum clean the studios even though it clearly says in the booking confirmation that there is daily cleaning.
Futhermore we never got acces to your free sauna. And the pictures they show on the web- site do NOT show how the studios really look like. It is cheating... The studios are old and it smells awful in the corridors. Further more they placed us in some studios on floor -4 where we hardly had a view. Really bad experience. They must be able to do better than that.
We were so disappointed especially with the behavior of the young receptionist - Get rid of her!!!!!!
