  • 8.0.Very Good

    Food was incredible for half board, this also included free alcoholic drinks with dinner. Swimming pool was beautiful but too busy with children in the evening when you’ve just come back from skiing, they should have an adult only time slot. Overall staff were lovely except a few abrupt staff at the bar and shop. Please note that the shop does not take card and the closest cash machine is by the slopes. Bar staff also weren’t impressed by us asking to use card or put our drinks and lunch on the room bill.
