We have just returned from an 8 day family holiday here to give my 3 kids (14, 12 & 8) their first taste of skiing and we were completely delighted with the hotel and the resort.
I was looking for something more authentic and homespun than Club MED/Mark Warner but without compromising on efficiency and support, and this fitted the brief exactly.
The hotel is perfectly set up for skiing, 100m from the chair lift. THey own their own ski hire shop which is on the promises and the ski school, which is included in the price. The instructor/child ratio was about 1:6 at peak time, and Nadine taught all our kids together. They had a ball, and the week is well structured including a brilliant International race at the end which was handled impeccably.
Rooms were spartan but scrupulously clean and generously sized. There is a spa, sauna and swimming pool which were great.
The catering was excellent - a short dinner menu is presented at breakfast, and the food is presented beautifully and there is always enough simple fare for the kids to enjoy, including a lolly called a Bum Bum which caused much mirth. THe wine list is well chosen, but a little pricey, but there is plenty available by the glass. A simple buffet lunch and tea are included at their cute Alpine lodge, the Seealm.
It is an all inclusive package. Our bill for 8 days including a day of private tuition, moderate wine/beer consumption, ski/boot/helmet hire & laundry came to €6,500. Lift pass was €800. We were satisfied that this was good value, as were the many other families who have been coming back here year after year. Book early.
One note: the transfer from Munich airport via 4 Seasons travel was expensive (€300 return) and unreliable. Next time we'll hire a car.
