We stayed at Le Pic Blanc for EGSW 2014.
This hotel is a pretty decent ski resort hotel in a pretty average resort.
The rooms and main areas are clean but do look a bit tired/dated, although the dining room where they serve breakfast/dinner is bright, airy and has a great view of the mountains.
The hotel rooms (although dated) are spacious, have a flat screen TV and decent WiFi connectivity, a mini fridge and the showers have great pressure and endless hot water.
But... they do NOT have any facilities to make tea/coffee, which would be ok if you were able to buy tea/coffee from the bar, but you can't for most of the day/night. The bar has very limited opening times.
Each room does have an allocated ski/snowboard locker right by the front entrance which makes storing your equipment very easy.
We found the hotel's meal options a bit hit and miss to be honest.
For Breakfast there is a decent full continental selection with delicious pastries, but the "english" selection only consists of badly scrambled eggs and chopped up tiny bits of bacon. The same selection every day. Oh, and one toaster for all the guests to share...
For dinner, we found it VERY git and miss. Some nights the food was incredible and mouth wateringly good and some nights it was a school dinner. Definitely don't take half board, but rather visit restaurants around the resort.
L'Alpe-D'Huez is an average resort with its pros and cons. It is really big, which means having to take a bus from the hotel to the main training slopes and main lifts as it is too far to walk, especially with your equipment.
There are some lifts and slopes close enough to walk to from the hotel, so you can get skiing quickly if you want to.
The restaurants and bars in the resort are far apart as well. It is also a bit more expensive than the neighbouring resorts.
All in all, a decent stay, but will probably go to Les Duex Alps next year instead.
