We globally had a very pleasant stay, many "pros" and a few "cons":
GO's quality: all excellent in general and in all areas I have dealt with. Special mention to ALL the GO's team at the Mini Club and Pertit Club. Our son couldn't have been better taken care of, and the activities for young children were plenty and all very interesting for them.
Ski: a real ski in - ski out, excellent location for skiing, can't beat it. Perfect for any ski level, we had an adult expert and a beginner child in our family and the location was convenient for both.
Ski instructors: had two and kid had one, they were all very good and passionate. Our ski instructor "Petit Pois" (nickname) was a real passionate and off pist skiing with him was delightful.
Food: very good, variety. and friendliness of the GO staff at the restaurants. They are really attentive, flexible and want to make everyone happy.
Quality of infrastructure: was excellent, all in great shape.
Rooms are just too small. Baths have OK size but you definitely need more room that what the STD rooms offer, you just can't move around. Next time I'll take a Deluxe.
Our room had a strong smell of cigarette. I even didn't know smoking was still allowed in hotels in France; at booking time, we were never asked for a prefference for a smoking or non smoking room. This situation shouldn't have happened.
Cleaning: a couple times I was in the room when the cleaning service came and I let them in; it didn't take them more than 8 minutes to "clean" the room. They superficially fixed it more than they cleaned it; twice I had to remove myself an empty glass of wine that was in the room. They need to adress this aspect.
Children: YES it is a family resort, so it gets noisy in all common areas due to children. There were "hords" of unattended (mostly English) childrens and young teenagers wandering in the Club at all time except after 10pm, and that can be annoying if you are looking for relaxation. If that trip was without children I'd choose a different CM.
Boutique: avoid it at all cost! I paid 30 Euros for a basic energy converter, and thought that was outrageous but really needed it as I had forgotten mine. Two days later I stopped at a nearby supermarket at Aime la Plagne just a few hundred yards above Club Med, and the very same converter was 7.5 Euros, 4 times less than at the boutique at Club Med. How can you explain that? You may charge a little more due to the place, but 4 times more (than a shop in a ski resort, which is already probably more expensive than it would be in a city) is just a robbery. Too bad as the ladies working there are very nice people.
All in all a very good destination. Despite the small hitches I am planning to return with my family next year.
