Les Sybelles is known to be one of the cheaper ski areas. So if you chose to go to Les Sybelles you'll probably also be satisfied with a cheaper hotel and this is one of them.
We paid €280 for the room and for the skipass with 2 persons. The skipass is probably €120 for 6 days. So that leaves €160 for 7 nights or €23 per night. What do you get for that price? The usual things a living room, 1 bedroom, 1 toilet, 1 bathroom, a microwave, a refrigerator, cooking plates and a bunch of cooking and eating material.
These are the basics and the basics are ok, except for one thing and that's dirt. A lot of things were dirty. The cutlery wasn't properly washed and there was dust and hairs of previous visitors everywhere. It's easy to understand how this happens. In an apartment like this you have to clean the apartment before you leave. Then the staff comes in for a quick check and off you go. As a result everything was nice at first glance, but once you settle down you'll quickly notice all the dirt. Furthermore they don't provide any vacuum cleaners so you can't properly clean it before you leave. I know the price is low, but I consider hygiene a basic necessity.
I also have other remarks but these are more related to the "extras". For example, there's a pool but the pool is very small, more or less 40 m2. We stayed during the low season, but it was always crowded. Another example is the wifi. Yes there is wifi if you pay extra, but the connection sucks.
One more big remark is the distance to the slopes. I read it was far, but walking 2 kilometers every day till you get to a proper chair lift is long.
So as a conclusion, this residence gave us the basic but nothing more than the basic except dirt and dust.
