Had a great week in Val D'Isere with Club Med booked via Igluski.com
The flight left at 12 noon from Bournemouth which I'd thoroughly recommend - small enough to make everything easy and uncrowded but big enough to have everything you need.
The transfer from Geneva is a long one and because we waited for another flight to land it meant that we didn't arrive at our hotel until 7.30 at night - a very long day. Being so late meant that we missed the Welcome meeting and lost out on hearing the information about hotel, resort etc.
The food and drink at the hotel is all of a very high standard and plenty of it - it's also available throughout the day!
Our room was B25 and was a bit of a walk from the lounge, bar etc but we liked it as it had a balcony overlooking the slope and was very quiet.
The pool area is excellent and hardly used which shocked us - a very busy hotel but other guests not interested in the pool or sauna. However a hot tub was advertised but that was only for Premium guests!
The boot room and locker was good and the access onto the slope wonderful - easy runs from and back to the hotel.
The staff at the hotel were very friendly and were enthusiastic about everything you talked to them about
We've been skiing for many years and enjoyed the resort but did think that some of the slopes were badly graded eg some reds could have been blacks and some blues were very dark red, in our opinion - not good if you've just started to ski.
We didn't have the lessons which were included in the price but you could if you wanted to. We also hired skis independently as the ski hire at the hotel was rather pricey.
The cafes on the slopes were lovely and not as expensive as we expected - 2 diet cokes cost about 7 Euros
Maybe because we missed the Welcome meeting we didn't realise that we would have a wake up call on our last day - the phone rang at 3.45 to wake us although we didn't need to leave the hotel until 4.45. Annoying as we didn't need an hour to get ready and it meant we were sitting waiting for our transfer for half an hour!
All in all a great ski holiday though and we're already planning our next one :)
