The indoor pool and reception were very clean and relatively quiet for the holiday season. We checked in late about 7pm so avoided the queues when it first opened. The...

We spent a week at the Cristal and enjoyed it from day 1. High standard throughout the hotel. We are die hard skiers and as such we appreciated the no-noice-after-10 pm-rule, since we really needed our beauty sleep after a long day on the mountain.

We were absolutely happy at this apartment hotel. The location is a 100 metre walk to the main ski lift areas, central to restaurants and shops, and room numbers not so big that we ever felt crowded. Staying in an apartment hotel, it's brilliant to have a carrefour supermarket in the adjacent building - we didn't even need to put...

Everything was beautiful. Very spacious and well laid out, especially everything around the reception and pool/spa areas. Our room was well equipped, clean and tasteful. The heating was quite fierce, but we could just throw open the window or balcony doors. Location is perfect and the resort is authentic and pretty. Skiing area is also well connected and very well...
