After booking this hotel and reading some mixed reviews on here I thought I would be doing this hotel, resort and staff an injustice if I did not post a review.
We had a great time staying in the Hotel Des Alpes. The hotel is perfectly located just meters away from one of the main gondola's and chair lift servicing les Menuires.
The Skiing was superb, we went the last week of January, the snow cover was excellent and the sun shined for all but one of the days we were there. Les Menuires has great access to the 3 valleys. You are basically a mornings skiing from most of the major resorts in the area and we often found ourselves to be the only people skiing on some of the runs! Due to the great conditions we had plenty of time to explore the ski areas in Meribel, Val Thorens and the expensive Courcheval.
Now onto the hotel, as said before it has a great location. The Food was excellent and there was plenty of it. There was a hot and cold buffet breakfast in the morning with often omelettes cooked to order in front of you. There was a 4 course main meal in the evening which was lovely. The only down side was there is no choice of main meal but the food is so good I found it hard not to enjoy what was provided. (I don’t like cheese that much but found myself enjoying the tarteflett!
The staff were very helpful and very approachable often giving advice of the best areas to ski and weather reports. They really did add to the great atmosphere around the place!
They might not get everything right with their service sometimes but always did more then enough to put things right should you have a problem.
All in all we had a great time and would not think twice in returning given the opportunity.
