Contarary to other reviews the room was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The furniture was a bit bashed around but everything was intact and worked. Beds firm but comfortable. Kitchen equipment clean and all worked OK.
This is an "on the piste" location and you could literally ski from and back to the door to the ski locker.
A previous reviewer moaned about doing an inventory. It took us about 15 minutes on the first night against the possibility of losing our 300 Euro deposit this was time well spent. Everything was there and undamaged. We noted a few of the things that were slightly damaged in the room like a stain on the carpet and a curtain hook missing.
The room was warm even with the heating turned right down and it was easy to dry things overnight if required although we never really got wet.
Now the down side.
Reception does not open till 15:00 on a Saturday so there was a big queue to check in.
To hire a towel pack containing a bath and a hand towel cost 14 Euros so that was 28 Euros spent before we even got to the room.
TV was 40 Euros for the week so we did not bother.
There was nothing except a vacuum cleaner to clean anything. We had to buy washing up liquid, and dish cloth and used one of the hand towels as a tea towel.
Although positioned well for skiing the hotel is not in a great place for nightlife.
My wife and I are over 50 years old and have learnt that you pay for what you get. We knew what to expect and were not dissapointed. We come to ski (7 hours a day for 6 days) and nothing else really matters as long as room is clean and comfortable.
I don't know what people expect sometimes from a relatively (note I said relatively) cheap self catering skiing holiday.
Based on our experience I would recommend the apartments but don't expect luxury.
Bring own towels and a few bits and pieces to do the washing up as they cost a fortune in resort.
