Where do I begin, I stayed here in January 2014 with my sister and friend. It is advertised as a four star accommodation with Crystal Ski holidays, unfortunately it is at best two star. The entrance door opens directly into the bunk bed area with wardrobe. The bathroom is quite large but unfortunately the bath is a tub, the overhead shower has no shower rail. The sittingroom/kitchen also doubles as a bedroom. The sofa beds are so hard and narrow we had to swap the mattress from the bunk beds to the sofas to get a nights sleep. The only good thing I can say about this place is its location, we did ski into it and it is conveniently located to the village.
We stayed at this residence in February 2012. While the reception was a bit tricky to find in the middle of the night, the appartment did the trick. Please bear in mind, this is not a 5 star residence. The bathroom is rather small, but we managed to make it work with 4 adults.
It is conveniently located for the slopes and the reception was always helpful. They also provide free boardgames.
Point to note: you will need to pay for parking there. For 3 days, we had to pay EUR35.
we booked through crystalski for myself, husband and 2 kids age 9&10. the apartments were very basic. we booked the apartment for 2-5. kitchen had a fridge and only a 2 ring hob. no oven which i felt would have made a big difference. we lived on spaghetti bolognese and on a couple of occasions we ordered pizza to our rooms which were about 12 euro each. the bedroom was in a type of attic with not much head room. there were 3 beds upstairs and a fourth mattress was on the floor. it was a bit claustrophobic but managable for a week. there were ski lockers at the enterance to the apartments. the apartment had a separate bath and the toilet was so small that when you sat on the toilet, your knees were on the wall! I would go back though, because the location was really great. although like someone has already said there is a main reception at one end of the village where you check in, then if I am right, there are 2 or 3 different sections to the apartments, we were just lucky with our location I suppose which was just at the bottom of the creve couer drag lift and chair right up to the top of the mountain and on the other side of the apartment was another lift.
we found Valmorel to be really expensive. a guide to eating out at most of the places for lunch on the pistes were about 12-14 euro for lunch including a drink. cans of coke or any pop were 3.50 euros. Prices at the supermarkets were also extortionate, even the guy from the place we used to get our expensive chicken and chips would tell us that the supermarkets were very expensive. he told us it was much cheaper to drive 20 mins down the road to the supermarkets as they were cheaper. skiing was great and as a family this was our 2nd week skiing and was absolutely ideal for just cruising around and the feeling that you have travelled.
