We went in December in the first week of the season. We were expecting teething troubles but actually had very few. The staff were friendly and engaging and did a great job coping with the first week of guests (it was a full chalet as well).
We have been a few times with Esprit and we like their childcare approach and their reps are always fun and good with the kids. The rooms in Chalet Corniche were actually slightly nicer than some of the chalets in the past (I think this is a hotel in the summer) so the rooms were all a decent size and had a proper wardrobe. Cleaning was done to a good standard (and with fun touches in the kids rooms e.g. arranging the teddy bears every day). As it is also a hotel - there is bit of a faff as you need keycards to access the rooms so if the kids got up in the night they often locked themselves out (we always kept one of the cards to their room in ours so it was not a problem). There was a listening service on each floor every night so we were not concerned about security (and in fact felt more secure as the doors actually locked unlike many chalets in the past)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This new chalet, built especially with Esprit families in mind, enjoys an ideal location, close to piste and ski-lifts. The choice of bedrooms and suites all offer smart new en-suite bathrooms, and stylish and attractive interiors are planned throughout, to make this one of our top quality chalets. Children in our childcare lunch here, with the childrens ski area so conveniently close. ... more less
