“Classy, comfortable and well appointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

Not normally one for these "designer" accommodations was very pleasantly surprised. Very comfortable, with touches you wouldn't normally expect (supply of balsamic vinegar, of all things!) and well equipped. Location is quite (no nightlife here) but ideal for families or the more ski-oriented. Excellent location to lift rentals, school and lift and the good ski storage (with heated boot warmers) meant that hitting the slopes was a painless experience. Some queue bottlenecks on the telecabine but the gondola/chair combination to the summit is almost as fast. Only complaints were way too hot in the apartment (might have been broken) and maintenance unresponsive (see previous point). Some confusion over booking for "toddler" bed (they supplied a crib) but sorted it our quickly. Given you pretty much have to drive here from Zurich, car parking on site at a moderate price is a boon.

We visited the resort december 2010 for a week and stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment. This December we are repeating the same trip.
Our three kids loved the snowboard school, me and my wife are beginners took some private lessons.
The supermarket is steps away, as well as the bakery. Many restaurants are available within the resort and nearby films or laax or Valera.
If you are for the ultimate ski family holiday this is the best choice.
We woke up at 7:30 and the lift close by 4:30.
Apartment has all amenities that you need when you want to relax after a long nice day.

We stayed at Rocksresort for 3 nights and we appreciated most of the modern amenities and the proximity to the gondola. For the most part, you get exactly what you see on the website, so if you like what you see and the price is right for you, go for it.

We visited in early-September - at that time of year its very quiet (good) but some of the shops/lifts are already closed for the season so keep that in mind. There is a Volg in the village and the local gas station has late hours and an adequate selection of food.

The cost of the two bedroom, one bathroom apartment was pretty reasonable. There were all the mod cons, with the addition of some luxuries - the wonderful steam bath and rainforest shower. However, we were unaware that parking there would set us back SFr70. We were initially told that use of the swimming pool in their sister hotel would cost SFr90 each time we used it. On further enquiries however, we were told that as it was quite quiet we would be allowed to us it for free - phew!! On the first day lunch in one of the restaurants was an eye watering SFr111 - for three bowls of soup, a plate of noodles, two small beers and a couple of soft drinks. However, apart from this the scenery was beautiful, the Freestyle Ski Academy was excellent and our kids used it a lot - white water rafting and mountain biking was brilliant. If only we didn't have to think twice about going out for a meal at night - it would have been perfect.

Room Tip: The two bedroom apartment was spacious, clean and had everything you could wish for including loo ro...

Rock Resort in Laax is a great apartment resort in the Alps combined with hotel services. High quality fit out, stunning contemporary design, beautiful bathrooms with fantastic rain showers. All bedrooms with large in-wall wooden wardrobes, great beds. The resort is perfectly situated next to the ski lifts and the last ski run of the Crap Sogn Gion. The resorts has it all; restaurants, also for breakfast, bars and shops. The pool and spa in the Signina hotel (part of the resort) are nice, but a little bit sterile from the design point of view. The Piazza between the buildings creates a small village, which was missing in Laax-Murschetg. The Alpenarena is definitely one of the best ski-places in Europe. In the summer you need to be very lucky with the weather. We had during our last couple summer visits too many bad weather days and to cold for sun bathing at one of the nice lakes. Dinner in the 20 min walk mountain restaurant Taglia Larnags is a must if you stay in Laax! The Swiss have only one problem, "they are completely lost concerning pricing". The rock resort room rates itself are ok on the pricing and is worth every single CHF. Only almost all the restaurants, shops, entertainment, bike rental etc are extremely expensive if not seriously overpriced, not only in the resort but all places in Laax and Flims. Still if you look for active holidays at a great mountain location and appreciate great architecture and design the Rock resort in Laax is the place to stay!

We spent several holidays in the newly built Rocksresort in Laax. The interior of the flats is perfectly designed and furnished with both local granite and wood as the main materials. The buildings are situated very close to the base station and you'll find all kind of shops and ski rental services within a few meters distance to your home. Therefore, you barely use your car during your stay. Also the service is very friendly and helpful. Dining in the nearby restaurants Nooba and Camina is very easy also with children, staff is always very helpful. I can fully recommend this location for a perfect family holiday! All in all, the rocksresort is more of a urban style than what you would expect from a traditional winter holiday in the Swiss mountains. But this is more than compensated by the highly convenient and super freindly service and offering.

The Good: The rooms are superb with good spacious living area and compared with the Hotels much more attractive. We had the bigger type of apartment for 4 - two bed rooms, one double one twin but the smaller version is still miles better than a hotel room. Self cater with a well stocked kitchen if you wish (try picking food up in the village a mile away as the resort costs are all Weise Arena AG monopoly prices) - or just book the 8 OKish restaurants - I know they can't cook but nor can we Brits. Piste lift on your door and ski hire/ski room in the basement along with the car park for all the blocks. You can use the hotel's pool for a big fee if the children need to work off energy.
The Bad: News years eve was a party til 3am - hell if you want to sleep. But otherwise the nightlife ends 7.30 - so if you like that sort of thing please don't go to Laax (we may want to return.) Apartment pricing is fair for the quality but sadly switzerland + ski resort + monopoly resort owner + weak pound = empty bank account
The Ugly: The Swiss seemed to be smiling this year - they must look up the exchange rate every morning. Then dance down to ask the German tourists how their wonderbar Deutschemark is doing these days.
