A few weeks ago now so I wil try and remember as accurately as possible.
We managed to get this accomodation, literally the last available in the whole resort, on the morning of our arrival! Meant we didn't get a choice of apartment. We stayed in Nordend.
Good location, a couple of miles outside Alagna itself so if you have a car excellent. Easy parking.
Equally they ran regular shuttle services to the lifts and back and it seemed excellent, though we didn't need it.
Excellent cleanliness. Really comfortable beds. Plenty of towels etc. Good storage space both for clothes and toiletrries, food....
Warm, heating worked well.
Most accomodation had balconies, I think just ours and one other didn't. In summer this would be really important.
Very good reception staff, incredibly helpful with any small thing.
Things that could be better:
As we were on the ground floor it meant other people regualrly walked by. The curtains were either black out or nothing which meant not very private during the day. Could easily be fixed with a voil. Would not affect the majority of apartments.
Kitchen, listed as fully fitted. No oven, grill, kettle, toaster. We had two rings and a microwave, don't know about other apartments. Great assortment of pans, crockery etc.
WiFi. Just didn't work in the aprtment unless your nose was up against the window and you didn't move! They did provide a data cable as we had a laptop but the socket was in the bedroom behind the door not near any furniture.
I woud recommend and would probabaly use again but choose the apartment in advance.
