We have just returned from a week’s skiing. We chose Club Med as the kids had such a great time in Club Med Sandpiper in April and loved the whole set up. Firstly the location and the primary reason for the holiday, skiing, you cannot get a better location, great ski in and ski out. You can see the club from most points and La Plagne generally is great skiing for the kids. All the skiing lessons are run through ESF (The French ski school), the instructors are excellent and the kids progressed a lot in the week. You have to be aware that Club Med is used by all nationalities and my youngest, 5, was the only English speaker in the ski class which made it a bit lonely for her. Ski lessons are not included on Saturday so we arranged for a ski guide through ESF and had a great day skiing as a family. On arrival you are given your ski passes, you then register the kids for mini club which includes the lessons and sort out ski hire. Ski hire is slow but you are not in a rush and it all gets sorted before dinner, so everything is nice and easy to arrange.
Overall the club is in a good condition and worth the 4 tridents that it has. I popped in to the second La Plagne club and you can certainly tell the difference between the 3 and 4 tridents.
The main difference between the States and Europe was the food; in Sandpiper everything was made fresh in small quantities in front of you which meant it was hot and fresh. The selection was greater and Sandpiper had many healthier options. In La Plagne it was predominately meat for the adults. Most of the dishes served were small potions on small plates, 2 slices of meat with a couple of potatoes. I understand that they want the presentation to be nice but after a full days skiing I'm looking for a substantial meal and yes you can return to the buffet but when you ask for more than the allocated portion the chefs make you feel awkward, I just expect “of course how much would you like” in return.
The rooms and bathrooms were small but clean and perfect for what you need; to be honest you don’t spend that much time in the room. As you can probably tell the skiing was excellent, the club was very good but the dining room experience left a lot to be desired but I would return as it is all about the skiing!
