Reviewed 25 July 2011

Rock Resort in Laax is a great apartment resort in the Alps combined with hotel services. High quality fit out, stunning contemporary design, beautiful bathrooms with fantastic rain showers. All bedrooms with large in-wall wooden wardrobes, great beds. The resort is perfectly situated next to the ski lifts and the last ski run of the Crap Sogn Gion. The resorts has it all; restaurants, also for breakfast, bars and shops. The pool and spa in the Signina hotel (part of the resort) are nice, but a little bit sterile from the design point of view. The Piazza between the buildings creates a small village, which was missing in Laax-Murschetg. The Alpenarena is definitely one of the best ski-places in Europe. In the summer you need to be very lucky with the weather. We had during our last couple summer visits too many bad weather days and to cold for sun bathing at one of the nice lakes. Dinner in the 20 min walk mountain restaurant Taglia Larnags is a must if you stay in Laax! The Swiss have only one problem, "they are completely lost concerning pricing". The rock resort room rates itself are ok on the pricing and is worth every single CHF. Only almost all the restaurants, shops, entertainment, bike rental etc are extremely expensive if not seriously overpriced, not only in the resort but all places in Laax and Flims. Still if you look for active holidays at a great mountain location and appreciate great architecture and design the Rock resort in Laax is the place to stay!

We spent several holidays in the newly built Rocksresort in Laax. The interior of the flats is perfectly designed and furnished with both local granite and wood as the main materials. The buildings are situated very close to the base station and you'll find all kind of shops and ski rental services within a few meters distance to your home. Therefore, you barely use your car during your stay. Also the service is very friendly and helpful. Dining in the nearby restaurants Nooba and Camina is very easy also with children, staff is always very helpful. I can fully recommend this location for a perfect family holiday! All in all, the rocksresort is more of a urban style than what you would expect from a traditional winter holiday in the Swiss mountains. But this is more than compensated by the highly convenient and super freindly service and offering.

The Good: The rooms are superb with good spacious living area and compared with the Hotels much more attractive. We had the bigger type of apartment for 4 - two bed rooms, one double one twin but the smaller version is still miles better than a hotel room. Self cater with a well stocked kitchen if you wish (try picking food up in the village a mile away as the resort costs are all Weise Arena AG monopoly prices) - or just book the 8 OKish restaurants - I know they can't cook but nor can we Brits. Piste lift on your door and ski hire/ski room in the basement along with the car park for all the blocks. You can use the hotel's pool for a big fee if the children need to work off energy.
The Bad: News years eve was a party til 3am - hell if you want to sleep. But otherwise the nightlife ends 7.30 - so if you like that sort of thing please don't go to Laax (we may want to return.) Apartment pricing is fair for the quality but sadly switzerland + ski resort + monopoly resort owner + weak pound = empty bank account
The Ugly: The Swiss seemed to be smiling this year - they must look up the exchange rate every morning. Then dance down to ask the German tourists how their wonderbar Deutschemark is doing these days.

A mixture of positive and negative experiences. On arrival we found our apartment to be full of cigarette stench. We were immediately offered a new one but no help with moving our luggage. The apartments are spacy, comfortable, very conveniently located in relation to the ski lifts, and indeed have a very nice design. The ski storage area is also very comfortable and conveniently located but we spent 2 hours on the first day trying to get a locker working... Be ready to pay extra for parking, sheets and towels, and possibly also cleaning. It would be nice to have that included in the initial price of the apartment. Finally a few words about the skiing conditions. Those were unfortunately a disappointment compared to what skiing resorts in Italy and Austria have to offer. The ski runs were not prepared well and the snow conditions were poor. The signs on the ski runs were usually missing or few and far between thus making it considerably easy to take the wrong route. Hence, if you have a choice between Switzerland and Italy or Austria, I would recommend that you choose either of the 2, i.e. Italy or Austria.

Excellent appartment that fits 6 adults and 2 children (also a smaller version available). Rocksresort is build on the slopes and is surrouned by shops, restaurants and a few meters away from two lifts. The build quality is very good, with kitchen and two spacious bathrooms with shower and bathtub. Four seperate bedrooms and a large living area and dining area.
Laax is a large ski and snowboard resort. Especially the snowboarding is very good.

First, it is important to understand this is a superb serviced apartments property, not a hotel: there is no room service, no minibar, daily housekeeping is optional and it consists of a series of buildings (so going for dinner in winter means going out in the cold with money (since you cannot charge your room in all of the nearby restaurants)).

That said, it is brilliantly executed. Overall the infrastructure is great: there is an underground car park, the appartment is well designed and convenient and entirely fitted with high quality items, from the great shower/bath combination to the Alessi teapot in the kitchen. One is next to the ski lifts, the ski school for adults and kids, and your room key lets you access a heated closet for your ski equipment underground.
While you have to get out to get food (unless you bought some at the local supermarket to stock your fridge), the resort pathways are kept free of snow and ice.
The ski resort itself plays in the same league than the hotel, the entire ski area is groomed and impeccably maintained, and offers a wide variety of slopes. By the way, the ski school is very popular and I recommend you book ahead on the laax.com website (you can book everything on the web)

In 2010, weeks were Sunday to Sunday which was a welcome change from the usual Saturday to Saturday: we went in an out with absolutely no traffic. Also unlike many other rented apartments, the basic essentials are provided here (oil, salt, pepper, toilet paper, ...) so you do not have to lug them around.

What's not to like?
Almost nothing:
- the white curtains in the master bedroom who totally fail to block any of the outside light; maybe this is to encourage you to go skying instead of oversleeping :)
-the incomplete english translation of the documentation in the room. German is the main language in Laax, with many german speaking visitors, and english often an afterthought.

Highly recommended.

I start with the worst things I have ever seen in a so-called luxury resort:
The rocksresort is far from being achieved, so many people are still working there that we have been awakened at 7AM in the morning by...a jackhammer destroying a stair built by mistake. It happened Friday AND Saturday morning.
Secondly, the room was full of dust because of all these works in progress.
At 10AM Sunday morning, we were about to check out just after putting all the luggages in the car, when the access cards have been disabled. Consequently we were stuck in the parking with a 3 years old kid and many luggages waiting for us in the corridor... so we had to go back to the reception just to ask for an access card to get our luggages stuck in the corridor... such a mess for so little things...
Last but not least it took me THREE days and 3 phone calls to get an effective reservation. First call they did not send me the reservation, then I call them back 2 days after and they tell me that I have no reservation...Finally one day before the start of the trip they call me FOUR times at my workplace... it took them one hour and 3 emails to get a confirmation. My boss was happy.
However, the flat was gorgeous and the personnel very friendly. I guess that it s just the worst hotel management in the world...
