Stayed here over the New Year and were so impressed that we booked for a long weekend in March. Yes, some of the rooms are basic and dated, but on both occasions we have been moved into a nicer one when one became available. Cannot fault the staff especially Nacira who remembered us and went out of her way to make our stay special, and Katia who was also very friendly and helpful.
We had half board on our first visit and the food and service were lovely, but discovered on the last night that if you did not want to eat dinner at the hotel, they give you a voucher towards dinner in partner restaurants.This time we were room only, but ended up having breakfast at the hotel as there was an extensive, fresh choice and at 14 euro per head, it was well worth the money when you find that it isn't much cheaper to have one omelette and coffee in town.
Hotel is so handy for all the amenities - bars, restaurants, shops, mini market, and the ski bus stops just across the road.
Haven't used the onsite ski hire as we always go to Ravanel which is just beside the hotel - love the guys in there!
In conclusion, yes, some rooms need updating and some can be noisy, but the views and service are worth it. We will definitely be back.
