“Probably one of the nicest apartments in Les Menuires”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2010

Les Menuires is not a pretty village. There are lots of very ugly concrete apartment blocks, but Les Clarines is built in the chalet style and is very nice. We were in a 1 bedroom apartment on the same level as the reception which was adapted for disabled use so I think we had more space than a standard 1 bedroom. As a previous reviewer stated you cannot adjust the heating in the apartment but it didn't seem to cause us a problem. Checking in on the Saturday was a bit of a nightmare. We waited in a very slow queue for the best part of an hour, but the receptionists were really helpful and friendly. I would say that by normal French accommodation standards, Les Clarines is great.

Les Clarines is way over priced for the quality of service. At c. Euros 2,100 a week for a 2 bedroom I expected a lot more from a “4 star residence”

To summarize a few facts:

• Centralized heating system: can’t change the temperature by apartment (already not very 4 star)
• No warm lobby as implied in the pictures: The lobby is more of a hall way and the fireplace is on 1 hour per day
• Check-in: That week we could only check-in at 7pm (which is unheard of…)
• Opening time: The reception is open a few hours a day out of the ski hours (be careful, on Sundays they are barely open so make sure you don’t need anything form reception after checking-in on Saturday at 7pm)
• Noise: if you are on the parking side of the residence you will enjoy the sound of a shovel every morning at 6:30am / 7am
• General services: You will have to pay 5 Euros every time you want to have a clean pool towel (annoying if you go to the sauna every day) / Internet works sporadically
• Pool / spa / sauna / gym: probably the only well built area of the residence, too bad it only opens from 10am till 8pm

Overall: worst value for money, management is inexistent, service is poor…
