January 2013. My wife and I have just returned from a perfect weeks skiing with Club Med at Aime La Plagne. We both only started skiing 5 years ago from scratch at the age of 55 and both learned to ski with the excellent english speaking ESF instructors at all Club Med resorts and we always hire our equipment at the hotel as part of our booking. All inclusive means all inclusive and we only spent an additional 50 euros all week when we decided, as our ski group, to eat out one day on the mountains, on an extended day long trip.
We now like skiing so much we have been skiing with Club Med some 10 times in the past 5 years so we are able to compare their various resorts in France and Italy.We like Club Med because it is so convenient from booking, equipment hire and professional ski instruction for all different levels, from beginner to expert, good hotel and great food, not least the all inclusive bar, so you know what the costs are before you go on holiday. If you've eaten and had drinks out in France recently it is very expensive, so the certainty of knowing your costs in advance is assuring.
Although one of the cheaper resorts in the Club Med brochure and our first time visiting this one, we found it really good, and the ski locker room and ski in and ski out was very easy. The hotel has a comfortable feel and not so big as to lose its personal feel. The rooms were very clean and well serviced. The bedrooms are adequate in size and functional and the shower room and toilet very good, and as good as you will find in better star rated hotels, even within Club Med resorts.
The staff were all excellent and all go out of their way to make your stay as perfect as you expected it to be when you booked. We had a great time, met many people from different nationalities and all shared some great fun, and most importantly thoroughly enjoyed the skiing in our group. In our 5 years skiing we have become comfortable in tackling any colour graded slope and some off piste with our great instructors. Seeing the hotel mini club children from about the age of 4 enjoying themselves on the slopes with their instructors makes us wish we had started skiing earlier in life. Well done Club Med we will return to this club again!
