Just returned from a week at the chalet in Morzine, staying for the last week in Feb 2014.
I've been on many different chalet ski holidays over the years, and this place has really nice, spacious and well-furnished rooms with en-suite bathrooms, probably the best I've stayed in (especially compared to the glorified cupboards I have sometimes had to live in).
The meals were fantastic, with variations such as vegetarian, or non-fish eaters well catered for. There is also a lounge downstairs (with an honesty bar for beers etc.) providing a nice area for groups to meet and chat in the evenings.
This is useful, as the only real downside to the chalet (common to many chalets in and around this resort) is that slopes and bars cannot easily be reached on foot from the chalet (its maybe a 20 minute walk to the edge of town in normal shoes) However, the team provide several minibus rides in the mornings which take you to the two big lifts in Morzine, or to the Prochan cable car which lifts you directly into Avoriaz, and they also fetch you at the end of the day (the only apparent fly in the ointment is committing to a time for that afternoon pickup in advance, but that wasn't a problem in practice and there are local bus and taxi services if you need to get around at different times, perhaps to return earlier than expected.)
A number of our party noticed that the chalet seemed to be kept at exactly the right temperature- not that warm and stuffy feeling we have often experienced from resort accommodation.
Our group of 15 or so shared the chalet with a family group of 8, and everyone got along fine.
The owner and team were really helpful in going above and beyond what might be expected- fetching lift passes for us before we arrived, and going out to fetch a replacement for me early one morning when I lost my pass mid-holiday. When the new cable car in Morzine had a technical problem, one of the drivers even took us to the neighbouring town of Les Gets one day in the minibus- saving us an hour or so in hitting the slopes.
The hot tub- while being great to have, and seating 10 people comfortably, tended to be a little cold- it was around 37.5 degrees and I find that 38.5 or 39 is necessary to really feel like a hot tub (you'd be surprised how much difference that single degree or so makes) but this may be because we were only there to use it towards the end of the 2 hours it was open each day.
In conclusion- I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending the chalet to anyone, and would hope to return again someday, perhaps with my family.
