We (two adults, two children) stayed at Le Merilys for one week during Easter 2013. We had an enjoyable stay and would return. The hotel is clean and the downstairs sitting area is very pleasant. The rooms are a good size for a ski hotel, although the beds were slightly small and the room would benefit from being done up (you may also want to bring your own pillow). We had interconnecting rooms, which worked well, and a balcony overlooking Meribel with sensational views. It was a lovely sitting, soaking up the sun and having a drink as we watched skiers taking their last runs back into Meribel.
The location is great for skiing (see below), but for my tastes, was a little bit out of the way from the main resort. I would have liked to have been a bit closer, from where we could have walked into the centre of Meribel.
1. Location: The hotel is located on the way to the Altiport at the Rond Point. It is easy to find and well signposted when you get near. There is a carpark under the hotel, which is free for guests. The hotel is close to the slopes (a 50m walk from the boot room - head back down the road and there is a path to the right. You can ski right to the hotel down a path behind the hotel, but it's not for the faint hearted) and it takes about 5 - 10 mins to ski down to the ski school meeting area.
2. Amenities: There is no wifi in the rooms, although there is free wifi in the bar/lounge. Breakfast is simple, but good. There is a helpyourself coffee machine and a juice machine that makes fresh orange juice. The bread and pastries are fresh and tasty and you can have cereal, eggs, meat and cheese, etc.
3. Ski hire: There are a couple of good ski hire shops a couple of bends down the road heading back into the centre of Meribel. One is a Skiset shop (you can get a discount if you book online in advance). When we were there they shut between 12.30pm and 3pm.
4. Restaurants: Dinner is not provided in the hotel. There are some restaurants nearby, of which we tried Aux Petits Oignons, which we would highly recommend. The food and atmosphere were lovely, with an open fire in the middle of the room. There are many more retaurants in Meribel. We had no trouble parking, but you may do so at other times during the season. You need to book most restaurants.
5. Skiing: The skiing in the 3 Valleys is some of the best in the world. It is, however, expensive. For the first time we really felt the food on the mountain was very pricey. An exception was Bouc Blanc, at the top of the bubble from La Tania. The food is very good and reasonably priced. There is also the fabulous, tree-lined Folyeres blue run back into La Tania to work off the food afterwards.
