Very good!

Reviewed 10 Jun 2016

A very good week! The food was excellent, with everything being a really high quality – we were all very impressed and had far too much to eat! Concerning the site in Alpe d’Huez, the hotel is well positioned. Overall it’s a nice hotel. Bedrooms could be a wee bit bigger but generally they were fine – everything was clean and we had nice views out of the windows. The swimming pool was fine and the entertainment was very good as well, we partook of that in the evenings. We liked the skiing in Alpe d’Huez and our guide was very good.
The hotel was really busy as it was the French school holidays and sometimes it could be a bit difficult to find tables at tea time. Generally it gave the place a good atmosphere though.

Location excellent, hotel & food fantastic

Reviewed 14 Jan 2013

Our stay here was very good – the location was excellent, ski and ski out is not perfect but OK.
Hotel and food were both fantastic.
The Club Med staff are always helpful, there if you need anything.
We ski with Club Med a lot and in our opinion they’ve got it down to a T.
The resort was good – snow great, nice pistes but the layout was a bit too wide for us, not at all contained and we found it difficult to orientate ourselves and it was a bit difficult in relation to getting back to the hotel.
Thanks,
Maria.

Ski and yoga instructor were amazing!

Reviewed 11 May 2016

Our third Club Med holiday, this time in Alpe d’Huez.
The food was brilliant, this chef definitely had an edge on the one in Avoriaz, but it always depends what chef you end up with as they change a lot.
Nino our ski instructor was absolutely fantastic and very patient. We’d get up for breakfast, meet him at 9.15 then come back for lunch and eat out on the sun loungers – it was so sunny for January and we’d just sit and soak the rays up, it was sublime.
Another thing that was absolutely brilliant is that when you get back from skiing, if you go to the massage room at 5 there’s a young guy doing yoga exercises. He went through the stretches and there was relaxing music in the background. It was something I really looked forward to each day, and whereas I’m normally stiffening up by Wednesday I wasn’t this time, I think it was really beneficial.
If there had to be anything outstanding about the holiday it would definitely be the ski and yoga instructors.
The room was small but always full so there were definitely takers, it would be great if they offered the same thing in all Club Med hotels.
If there’s anything to say, it would be that the double rooms are small, but you get what you’ve paid for. The hotels are all getting worn and tired looking, things like seat covers could always do with updating. That’s just the compromise of the price you pay, I don’t know if the 4* ones are better but we always go for the 3*.
We always go with a location where we don’t have to rely on coaches and buses, and it was great. We’d meet our instructor, then ski down to the main ski area and get the lift up.

Amazing for families, not couples like us

Reviewed 31 Dec 2012

Nothing wrong with the hotel at all but not quite for us. It’s really family orientated but we went just the two of us – it would be amazing for families but I wouldn’t recommend it to couples like we were - there was loads on for children like the kids show in the evening with kids running all over the place. The food was nice but the restaurants really busy (again as its so popular for families) and because we were a couple we were squashed into a corner. The hotel is well located, skiing in and out was easy (I’m not a great skier and I found it fine).

Disappointed with the quality compared to La Plagne 2100

Reviewed 8 Jun 2016

Overall I would say that the holiday was OK… This Club Med hotel isn’t nearly as nice as the one in La Plagne (2100). We walked into the rooms and we were really disappointed with the quality of them, on previous years we’ve had bathrooms and these ones only had tiny showers. They were much smaller and less comfortable too. The other thing was that our room was on the first floor and going to bed every night with young children when the disco was going was quite irritating! We would have been better off on a higher floor.
The hotel was pretty dirty, things like the carpets were stained and hadn’t been hoovered.
The food was good generally, but a bug got into the hotel (whether food poisoning or a general stomach bug I don’t know) and a third of the guests went down with it. My son got it and bounced back after 24 hours, but my husband was laid up for 48 hours.
The staff were brilliant as always and the rest of the holiday (flights, pick up, transfers etc) went like clockwork.
