We stayed at the Deux Domaines with a party of six parents, six infants and us, grandparents to twin 2 & 3/4 year olds. The hotel is run by Esprit and the staff are young and enthusiastic. Most things worked well first time and the staff really worked quickly to repair minor items like one of the lights in the room when it failed.
Rooms are spacious and the views are outstanding. It is possible to ski in and out of the hotel along a 50 metre private trail. The ski room was great with private cubicles with heated boot rails. The hotel organised ski and boot hire with a really helpful local company that delivered the skis to the hotel. The only drawback is that the hotel covers around 12 floors as a result of being built into the mountain so there are entrances at the bottom and the top as well as the skiing access somewhere in the middle.
Public areas are well appointed and the afternoon tea with sandwiches and cakes is a wonderful institution. The dining room is attractive with fine views and the food was of a high standard. Breakfast was traditional English or continental and the dinners were well presented and well cooked. An added bonus was unlimited free wine!
The arrangements for children are the thing that differentiates the hotel. Our grandchildren were safe in the nursery while their parents skied every day and our friends' four and seven year olds really learned to ski while their parents skied all day. Food for the children was well arranged. All the children seemed to be enjoying themselves
Above all, the staff were a delight. On average, they were very young, but they were anxious to please and all of them gave over 100%. I have no hesitation in recommending Les Deux Domaines ... While we were there, the snow was good and we had 5 out of six days with bright Sun. La Plagne is a good place to intermediates.
