I have stayed in lots of hotels in the alps over the last ten years and I love this place. A group of work colleagues and myself have stayed here for the last three years. It's difficult to get beds for 14 adult males for 5 nights during the ski season but the hotel has worked hard to accommodate us. We usually take the two family apartments and a couple of rooms and with a bit of flexibility we are always very comfortable. Breakfast is excellent consisting of cereals, bread, cheese, toast, eggs, bacon and pastries. More than enough fuel for a hard days skiing. The nearest piste is about three hundred metres away but can be reached by walking 50m and skiing the rest of the way on a footpath. Returning is similarly easy as there is road run that ends just across the road from the hotel.
They recently built a swimming pool/spa/sauna complex which is brilliant for tired legs at the end of the day and I find twenty minutes in the jacuzzi helped my stiff legs no end. There is a masseuse available if you feel like splashing the cash in a treatment.
The bar has a large log fire and is great place for a few drinks before dinner. The evening meal is usually five courses, soup, starter, main course, cheese board and a sweet. With two options for starter and main course. You my burn a few thousand calories on the slopes but you definitely won't lose any weight. My personal high point was a delicious rack of lamb but they also did an excellent tartiflette. None of our party was vegetarian so I have no experience of how they would cope but I'm sure it wouldn't be a huge problem for them.
We usually dined late and were almost always the last to leave the bar but we were never pressurised to hurry up and the staff indulged the 14 middle aged Brits with good humour and good service.
On our last day we usually finish skiing late and they store our luggage and allow us the use of the spa complex to shower and change. Les Menuires may not be the liveliest resort in the alps but if you just want a no hassle skiing session then this is the hotel for you. Ideal for Families and couples.
