Reviews

  • "Possibly the best skiing of my life! The hotel itself is around 15 mins walk from the town centre but there are free buses/vans that take you there and back which is very handy. The hotel has a very nice swimming pool/sauna complex. Rooms are small and clean (typical club Med) and the ski room is very nice and the ski in/out is a plus." - Trip Advisor 
  • "This hotel is very good for those who seek a week pure skiing. The hotel is situated close to the chairlifts, you start from and arrive to the hotel on skis. The ski instructors (included in the price) are very professional and nice, during the week we skied through almost all pistes of the Espace Killy ski region. The hotel's community areas are nice, food is exceptional, each evening you also have the possibility to enjoy a show and dancing afterwards (if you want to)." - Trip Advisor 
  • "We visited at Christmas and the hotel was full but it didn't feel crowded. All the staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. I also had a massage in the Spa which I would thoroughly recommend. We had first class tuition, great food, spacious rooms. It was just the most relaxing, stress free holiday." - Trip Advisor
