Club Med Cervinia
Ranked #14 of 38 Hotels in Breuil-Cervinia
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We were blessed with fantastic ski conditions - a week of snow before we arrived meant the pistes were excellent and we had the pleasure of skiing on them under sunny blue skies for 5 days. On the 6th day the wind got up and it was a different experience, but I have to say this counts as one of my best ski holidays. The Club Med concept with ski guide/instructors to suit your level works well and my lovely instructor, Stevie, ensured our group had fun exploring both the Cervinia and Zermatt sides of the mountain on virtually empty slopes, as well as improving our technique. My partner was also happy skiing off with his much faster group. Our room (in Cristallo) wasn't huge, but bigger than many we have experienced on chalet holidays, and had a proper bath. The food is plentiful - with lots of choice in the evening and very good quality ingredients. If anything, there is too much food, particularly at lunch time. We learned to order just a pasta starter and a salad rather than the 3 courses on offer! There is more food to greet you on return from skiing, and the bar is always open. So there is little reason to leave the hotel in the evening, which is just as well as it is a 10 minute walk to the town and there is nothing much in town anyway. Yes, the entertainment is pretty cheesy, but its easy to avoid. Overall the Club Med ski concept works well, and when the sun shines, Cervinia is an intermediate paradise.

Room Tip: Cristallo rooms are nearer the central area, but smaller than those in Cristallino. Cristallo rooms...

Just returned from half term week at this lovely resort. As ever the welcome was warm and the food very good. The all inclusive was good value including a large range of cocktails aperitifs and spirits. A bonus this year was our instructor Luciano who was very jolly and had a love of good food.This lead to a succession of long excellent lunches in mountain restaurants. He was also very keen that we see as much of the natural beauty of the area, taking us on new routes and covering quite a lot of Zermatt as well Cervinia. Pistes were wide and not busy. The only negative was that the bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner but they were definitely not a horror story. Would definitely recommend it.

Italian hospitality at its best, affordable skiing, even when the South African Rand was trading at an all time low. Après ski drinks included Gluhwein and hot chocolate and snacks were served the entire day.
Ski school was graded according to level of expertise and everyone in our group found a group that suited their abilities.even the very beginners had a very social beginner ski group,Class 1 with an elderly very charming ski instructor Mattheo. The food was an absolute culinary experience although the restaurants decor was a bit poor and revamping seriously needs to be considered, especially the cow print chairs. The resort is very well run and even on days when we didn't go skiing we could take a shuttle into the town, or swim in the pool. A bathing cap is required, although we did see people swim with their shower caps!! The spa is a bit expensive, and we didn't enjoy the Turkish bath, no jacuzzi is available. Entertainment in the evenings seems to be aimed at families and although we weren't with children we still enjoyed it. Next time we will go to an adult club med for skiing. Overall a wonderful affordable experience and we were sorry to leave.
Room tip: our room smelt badly of smoke and was situated far from the main area 2210 so I would suggest asking for a closer room.

we went to Cervinia just last week. we had a quick 1 and a 1/2 hour plane journey to Turin and then a 2 hour bus journey to the resort. when we got there we got the usual club med welcome drink etc. and were shown to our rooms by the very helpfull G.Os. we found the room layout of this hotel rather strange as the rooms were all on ground level. we were in Cristillino 2 which was a long walk walk to the main hotel. the walk really isn't as bad as some people say. Luckily the rooms are very big compared to other club med rooms. we have been to the following Club Med resorts: les deux alpes (twice), avoriaz, tingnes and then cervinia. the rooms in cervinia were double the size of the rooms at les deux alpes and avoriaz and were a little bigger than the rooms at Tignes. we had the normal standard rooms but still had a big balcony.
the food here was very good but there was not much selection of deserts. for lunch everyone except the teen ages eat out on the slopes. the food on the slopes was not that good and was not much selection. the location of the hotel i not very good as it is out of the town. to got to the slopes you have to take a bus.


overall we enjoyed our stay at cervinia and are going back next year again

Room Tip: this is tip for ski hire. I recommend to not hire skis from club med as they are much more expensive...

Thank you to such a wonderful team at the hotel. Everybody from the manager to the cleaners were so helpful and friendly. I would recommend anybody to go on a club med holiday, they really are a fantastic experience from the minute you arrive. We have been thoroughly spoiled.

Good transfer from Turin airport, only about 2 1/2 hours. Our luggage was taken to our room very quickly and efficiently.
When we arrived there was no internet for 3 days and when there was there is a 20 euros charge....The hotel is outdated, badly insulated in every way, and oddly/badly designed.
The staff is helpful and smiling it's a shame the building is falling apart.
There is plenty room for improvement in the kitchen department too. Some hygiene levels were poor and hot meals were often just warm and I could go on......
The skiing though was fantastic, with great weather, perfect snow and some of the best pistes and mountain views, with access to Zermatt in Switzerland.
It is not a "ski on" resort but there is a bus shuttle taking you to the ski lifts in only 3 minutes and we never had to wait long so it wasn't too much of a problem. it is possible to ski back to the resort though.
The transfer back was fine but Turin airport was very chaotic and dirty.

Wow what a lovely week we had. This was our first club med holiday and won't be our last. The hotel was a little tired and dated, but it did not spoil our holiday experience in any way. This was made up by the excellent smiley customer care of everyone of the staff.

The room we had was the deluxe suite, and we was surprised how spacious and comfortable it was. Only gripe I had was the shower wasn't the best and hair dryer was damaged.

The choice of food was amazing and a real plus of the holiday. I don't think I have ever eaten so well. The bar was a little slow at times, but the staff worked hard to serve everyone promptly.

The ski lessons I would describe more of ski guidance than ski tuition, but it was a great way to meet new people and learn the best locations to ski.

The ski storage was excellent with individual lockers, only minor gripe was with everyone leaving for lessons at the same time, it sometimes became a little busy.

Being a keen swimmer, I was disappointed with the pool, the changing areas was cold, the water in the foot bath was smelly and the shower I used, I had to constantly keep my hand on. When I got into the pool, they was no lights on, they partially came on when I swam my first length. The pool itself was big and warm to swim in.

Overall I would highly recommend this hotel to others and plan to return again soon.
