We were recommended to stay at the Rex by a group of fellow skiers who've been going there for years. And having sampled the Rex, we can see why.
Our rooms were spacious and immaculate with snowy white bedding and luxurious duvets. Some of the bathrooms are still to be renovated but even allowing for that, they were sparkling clean. Loads of hot water for the deepest baths. Nice touch to get robes and slippers as well.
The spa facilities are superb and perfect after negotiating that black run down to Furi! I loved the steam room, and the huge jucuzzi. Also check out the menthol shower - and let us know if you work out to use it. You can lie on a lounger and look through the class ceiling up at the ski.... or the snow.
Being well behaved Scots we kept our cossies on, but beware - a lot of European men let it all hang loose - and why not?!
Nothing was too much trouble for Kristophe and his team. They sorted out lift passes and booked the wee electric taxis. Not that you really need to. Just hovver outside the hotel for a bit and within mins you will have a passing taxi zooming in. The drivers particularly like groups of 4-6 as they get more money that way.
Great breakfasts as well. Delicious hot scrambled eggs, fresh bread that you toast yourself, loads of cheeses and conserves.
Can' recommend the Rex enough. Go if you can!
