Overall a good stay. All staff are amazing and upbeat; included lessons with ESF are great. Rooms are functional and clean, yet really old; a good thing is that the resort will have a facelift for 2019-20 season, which is much needed. Entertainment at night is OK, all the GOs do their role.
The best part (apart from the variety of slopes) is the food. It is particularly good, better than other Club Med hotels. The quality and variety at the buffet is excellent, almost unnecessary to visit the speciality restaurant.
I would definitely recommend staying here.

Check in very smooth & swift thanks to providing credit card info online before we left. Very good system & bags taken straight up to our floor.
Hired boots & skis: by providing info online, it was all very smooth & easy.
The staff are ALL so friendly and helpful. Lovely to a person. They try their hardest to help and make sure you are having a good time.
Ski instruction was by the ESF – more guiding than lessons. Not sure that is untypical. Having a lot of French people around does make it more difficult for the Brits though, as mostly the instructors speak in French. As ski guiding it was good though.
Room was OK. Basic, decent size for a ski resort. Not plush.
Food has enormous variation – they have massive buffets at Club Med. At times the choice sacrifices quality. But have to say their specials of the day invariably excellent, so there was some very nice food. But sometimes veg was cold and tasteless, likewise other dishes. All round though, you eat well at Club Med and plenty of choice. Tea time has fresh crepes which is always a winner for me!
Their evening entertainments were generally good. They try so hard. It is something to watch post dinner.
Alpe d’Huez has great skiing. Ski to the door. The resort is a little way from town which means it is quiet, but also harder to do anything without taking a bus.
Overall, it is a nice place. Had a good week. They are upgrading the hotel for next season so perhaps with a pool, games room & nicer rooms it will improve further.
