As Club med hotels go this was a really good week - we skied in a large group over Christmas and value for money was excellent - we booked early to get a discount. We paid for a deluxe room which was definitely worth it - we had a living room area separate from the bedroom and was really nice to have the extra space - none of the rooms (even the suites) have baths but the shower facilities were large and adequate.
As always the ski rental and lessons set up at Club Med was faultless - they have a great system that is quick and effecient. The food was of a good standard with all the treats like racelette, oysters, fois gras and the usual offering every day of pasta, meat and veg etc - although mostly buffet style so easy to over indulge! We tried the local speciality restaurant on Christmas day but it was a bit of a disaster as we were a large group and they just couldn't cope - if you are in a small group or a couple it could be good. If you are good enough to ski on blues and reds you should get to have lunch in at least one of the two mountain restaurants - both were excellent and it was great not to have to come back to the hotel.
The all inclusive bar was excellent and a decent size so not too crowded - we even requested a specific drink that they didn't have in stock so they went out and bought some from the local shops so we had it for the rest of the week.
The spa was great - massages etc but the outside pool was a little on the chilly side - would have been lovely to have had a warm swim surrounded by the snow!
Reception experience varied depending on who we were seen by - some excellent but some terrible, although it was the first week of the season so probably lots of new staff who weren't familiar with everything.
Am sure you would be able to find more luxury and high quality chalets or hotels in Chamonix but for best value, ski in / ski out and stress free week I wouldn't go anywhere else.
