We stayed for a week's hiking holiday with our kids, 6&4.
Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. One downside was that it was very hot in the room - under the roof in the chalet vital - it was impossible to get a breeze even with the windows wide open.
The kids club is nice - the lady in charge has a good way with kids and they loved going there. There was a great range of outdoor activities which were printed on a weekly plan, which meant we could plan our hiking for the week. (Days when they were staying in, we took the kids with us). Only problem is they don't stick to the plan - they change things at short notice, which was somewhat annoying. On one day there were too many kids, so a hike was cancelled in favour of arts & crafts. It was a beautiful day so we took the kids with us instead meaning we had to do a much easier route. Another day, my wife was recruited to help as again there were too many kids for the planned outing to the fishing pond. Elina needs an assistant and guaranteed access to a hotel minibus - the town 'hiking buses' are always packed - too packed for little kids.
The food was amazing - especially the 'Vital' menu and the breakfast buffet.
The coffee was not great - the filter is weak and bitter and the espresso comes from a WMF fully automatic. On the other hand there were so many amazing teas - especially the Chai, that I took a break from coffee, which was nice.
The serving staff and reception staff were excellent - very attentive without making you feel like you are some kind of temperamental dictator that might have them executed if they aren't grovelling.
The hiking guides stand around at breakfast to give advice and were excellent. You can hike straight from the hotel or take the lift from 2 mins away.
All in all, superb with a couple of easily fixable faults.
