    Total disrespect of staff and spoiled holidays

    by

    As it was pointed in most reviews which I'd read before, the location is perfect, just two steps to the slopes. I would not say that this is advantage that the residence has, as most other residences and hotels have such location in Mottaret.
    You will be very lucky if you will accommodate on the first floor. But we had an apartment just under the roof what means to lift up on the floor E + walk up the stairs, moreover the corridors, which are like open balconies, are not cleaned after snow and you will have to walk on the ice, which is really dangerous. You’ll have to walk every day this route when you are in ski shoes before skiing and after skiing, and when on your arrival and departure you have your luggage and ski/snowboard… Ok, value for money.
    However the biggest claim is to staff and management of the residence, who are not responsible for anything what is happening on the territory and if during your stay you have troubles - “it is not their (management’s) problem”. Noise and screams of drunk young people will accompany your stay from evenings till mornings. We experienced a very bad incident in one of the evenings and neither receptionists nor police even did not help us: reception was closed at that time, and police (I made a call on number 17) did not speak English and did not come. So we stayed with our problem on our own. Next morning we informed the staff at the reception and the management about the incident, but they even did not excuse and they were quite rude with us. It was the first time in my life (and hope the last) when I had such disrespectful treatment to me.
    All in all, if you are older than 26, if you come with your family, with little (and not little) children, if you care about your safety and calmness, do not stay here! Better pay a little more and choose proper accommodation that won’t spoil your holidays.

Meribel Skiing

by doot

Off Piste Skiing with the Meribel guides. When you arrive pick up a copy of Meribel Unplugged or check their web site.It has all the best tips for skiing and restaurants and nightlife in it. The Rastro Bar on a Tuesday in Mottaret..It really rocks...

Méribel, France

by pcyc

" From: www.ski-europe.com "

For keen slope-bashers who dislike tacky purpose-built resorts, Méribel is difficult to beat. It is slap in the middle of the Three Valleys - the biggest inter-linked winter sports area in the world. With 200 lifts and 600 km of slopes, and endless off-slope possibilities, it is difficult to be bored in a fortnight here. Fans of Courchevel and Val-Thorens sniff at Méribel's local slopes, but since Mont Vallon and the top of the valley were opened up some years ago, Méribel can stand comparison on most counts.

Méribel is built entirely in tasteful chalet-style, with wood siding everywhere. And the center is very pleasant with raised walkways by the shops above the one-way road. The village has grown rapidly in recent years and now spreads widely over the mountainside. It is very popular with British visitors, many of whom own chalets here. And English can be more commonly heard than French on the slopes and in the bars. It remains decidedly upscale and it's not cheap. But regular visitors love it and wouldn't be seen anywhere else.

"What's Great"

+ In the center of the biggest linked slope network in the world - ideal for intermediates who love covering the miles, but plenty for experts, too

+ Modern, constantly improved lift system means little waiting and rapid access to all slopes

+ Good slope grooming and snowmaking

+ Village purpose-built in pleasing chalet-style architecture

"What's Not-So-Great"

– Main village spread out, straggling along a long, winding road, with much of the accommodation well away from the slopes

– Expensive

– Méribel-Mottaret satellite is rather lifeless

– Not the place to go for any sensation of being a traveler in France

– Not the best snow in the Three Valleys, and trails can get crowded

Meribel Uncovered

by snowqueen76

"Meribel 2004 season"

Skiing & Riding
Meribel is a really great resort. We managed to do the whole season last year and managed to learn snowboarding and skiing from absolute beginner to very good skier and reasonable snowboarder. You really need a 3 Valley pass unless you are a beginner for just one week's holiday. There are two snowboard parks here plus others in Courchevel, Les Menuires and Val Thorens.Meribel is THE place to stay but the best area for skiing must be Courchevel. But anyway you can reach any of the other resorts in about 30 minutes so from Meribel you have such a wide choice every day.
Many people complain about crowds here but that is only New Year and French School Holidays "2nd week of Feb for one month".
Unless you have children you would be crazy to come at this time. It's true. Thousands of kids and crowded lifts and pistes. But all the rest of the season it's a dream.From the first weekend after new year till 7th Feb it is empty on the slopes and often the best snow of the season.(and the lowest prices) In April it is the same.often fabulous snow ,hot sun and the slopes are empty.Last minute deals are always available at about half price.It’s the biggest ski area in the world with nearly 400 miles of fabulous long pistes, and almost no queues anywhere. I met one American who said the 3 valleys were the equivalent of 20 of their average resorts all rolled in to one.
A Guide to Meribel
It can be expensive here so be careful.
A group of Meribel season workers have created a free guide to Meribel and its really great. Have a look at their web site for loads of inside information on cheap accommodation, restaurants, bars and apres-ski and everything you can think of in Meribel. Even season work too. (meribel-unplugged.co.uk). This web site is essential reading for anyone on any kind of a budget. We never paid more than about £10 for a meal with wine all season. (But we did hear some real horror stories from some tourists so be careful).In town near Jacks bar is the best sandwich bar in Meribel,Gourmadine. A giant Hot Pannini for €5 big enough for two.Also does the most fantastic takeaway roasted chicken.
On the Mountain:
If you have got kids "NEVER" let them be seduced in to ordering a "LARGE" coke. You might end up with a giant litre glass at about £11.00 or more.We have seen it happen!!! Beer is expensive too (£2-£2-50 for small 25cl )!! Red wine is the cheapest option everywhere.It is posible to get good value meals on the mountain but you can also get ripped off too.When you get to Meribel go straight to a bar and pick up that season workers guide.Then you will find out all the best value places.
Apres Ski & Nightlife.
The apres-ski is not as good as Austria, but still great for France. There are two exceptional places here in the afternoons. The Rond Point in Meribel which has fantastic live bands every afternoon and LDV which is in Meribel Village, a small satellite of Meribel. Both get packed so it's best to get in before the bands start at 5pm.The drinks are also 25% cheaper between 4-5 so get them in before.If you are in a group try a bottle of Toffee vodka.Expensive but dynamite!! Nightlife in Meribel centres around the Pub and Taverne for live music. Plus there are many other bars with normal Pub atmosphere.Dick's Tea Bar is the Brit's favourite disco where all the chalet girls go.
Up in Mottaret there is just one disco The Privilege which can be very good especially on Tuesdays. Le Rastro bar in Mottaret has a famous Tuesday night rock party with everybody dancing on the tables and they all head off to the disco at throwing out time.
All in all I would say that it is a wonderful resort suitable for all levels.
