Location loca loca
This place was very nice, quality rooms very comfortable friendly staff for the most part, did talk to 3 people and never got towels at the pool and finally resorted to using wet towels to “dry”off. Location could not be better snow cat groomed through the building at night pretty cool to watch. Would definitely stay there again.

gorgeous hotel with heated outdoor pool
Lovely hotel, heated pool and jacuzzi were perfect for Mountain climate, restaurants and indoor spa/pool looked amazing but closed due to covid and/or seasonality. Huge super comfy bed in prestige room. Would stay here again during ski season in a heartbeat!

4/10 Fair

It used to be very good...now it's just a mess!!
I have been to this hotel 3 times and it used to be really good, unfortunately now it has been expanded and is just a huge disorganized mess! At checkout they tried to charge me again even though I had already paid for the room online, same for the second room which was a present for my parents (and in this way they saw the price). They tried to charge me for stuff inside the minibar which we didn't use because they had no idea what was in the room. Before they expanded the hotel clients had access to the SPA,now it is at an extra cost (indoor spa).It is only free if you use it between 10am - 2pm which is useless for anyone that is there to ski. The new outdoor SPA is nice but definitely not big enough for the amount of people the hotel can now accommodate: they have hundreds of rooms and the outside SPA has 8 places in the Jacuzzi and 8 in the Sauna. The new rooms are aesthetically nice but not finished (missing parts, empty picture frames) and badly organized: nowhere to hang towels in the bathroom, bathroom door that can be only half opened because the TV is blocking the other half, room was dusty, extremely uncomfortable to enter the shower/bathtub since you need to climb over a high bathtub wall and land on the tilted part of the tub where your back is supposed to go (there is no way an elderly person will get in and out of it). The great 4 stars hotel and nice services doesn’t exist anymore,now you will just get a giant disorganized mess which is definitely not worth it

2/10 Poor

Definitely not worth the money; go elsewhere
After a 2 week tour of France, we can definitively say this was our worst experience. The service was terrible. We asked where to park, and we weren’t allowed to leave our bags in the lobby while we moved the car. We weren’t told there was a shuttle and the lot we were directed to was full. We had to drag our suitcases 500m in the snow. When we asked about the shuttle the next day they said we needed to wait. 20 minutes later we decided to walk... again. We had the Christmas Ever dinner at great, great cost, and the food was terrible. Multiple people left before the last course. We were ignored by the servers for most of the meal. Later on in the trip we had a *** Michelin meal that cost less than the dinner we had here. After dinner the empty lobby bar blasted club music until late in the night. When we asked if the music could be turned down because our windows were shaking they said there was nothing they could do. Overall, the trip was a mix of budget and nicer hotels, and I preferred the budget over this hotel. The view from the room was nice, but everything else was way below average. Bad service, bad food, poor amenities that they charges guests the privilege to use. I have tried to contact the management about our experience and have not gotten a response. There are cheaper hotels in the area that offer better amenities and attitudes.
