I was incredibly impressed with this hotel. The staff were very friendly and made the effort to ask how you were everyday. The room was clean and very pleasant - in our case we had a triple room and it was sufficient size, comfortable, with a good size and clean bathroom. The hotel itself is quite unique with interchanging diagonal walkways to take into account the hotel being on the side of the mountain - quite good fun!
Breakfast was excellent every day and we were given a table as soon as we arrived (they opened a 2nd floor for breakfast when busy). The selection was excellent and they cooked fresh eggs if you wanted them.
We had dinner in the hotel one might (fondue) which was also very nice and competitively priced against other restaurants in the resort. Nice atmosphere and very tasty.
In the evenings the main bar has a live jazz band playing which was a very nice touch, and the bar was almost full every evening so a great atmosphere. In addition there is a lesser known casual bar downstairs which was fantastic - films, pool table, chess, poker etc, and all very friendly - highly recommend it. There was wifi throughout the hotel for free which was great.
Downstairs there was a ski locker and ski hire shop, and the hotel is right on the slopes - couldn't ask for more. There was also a pool and spa but we didn't use either.
We would all visit again, a really fantastic experience.

Good facilities including well equipped kitchen, pool, wifi, heated ski lockers (great for drying boots). All the staff were friendly and helpful - although generally you have to go to the reception of the hotel next door to find someone. And when the steam room was not working we were offered the use of the spa facilities in the hotel next door.
The best part is that the pass office, slope and lifts are 2 minutes away.
Just watch the parking charges in the underground car park if you drive there - about 15 euro per day. All factored in a transfer might have been cheaper than our option of a hire car.
Loved the attentiveness of the staff to help. First skiing trip on my own so needed the crutch and they didn't falter under the weight. Really helped me sort out transport and point me in the right direction for what I needed. Laura on reception was a beacon for that service.
Like most of Les Arcs 1800, the buildings are not that impressive either outside or in, unless you love early 1970's building design. Stayed in a 5-6 person mezzanine appt, were only 3 of us so plenty of space. 1 bathroom and 1 additional toilet. No external ski storage, but a handy rack with drip dray just as you enter your room and a shelf for the boots too. Able to ski direct to the side door of the hotel, also handy of a morning as the chairlift is right beside the Aguile Grive 111 block, one of six that make up the Residence Maeva Charmettoger.
