Dear Martin F,
We thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Tripadvisor.
We would have liked to board you on this adventure, for your next stay in CGH La reine des Près
Great location, great facilities and friendly staff. Close to town and close the bubble lift. The apartment had everything we needed and the spa was a real treat after a day on the slopes. Highly recommended.
We thank you for taking the time to share your experience at la reine des près on Tripadvisor.
We are delighted that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us and that we met all your expectations.
We would have liked to board you on this adventure !
Stayed here over the UK half term with 3 adults, 3 kids (aged between 6-3) and 1 baby. The check in process was very long and quite inefficient - we arrived early only to be told to come back at 2pm. We came back at the proposed time but the check in queue was very long, there was only 1 person checking everyone in and inevitably there were arguments amongst the guests as to who was where in the queue. Would definitely recommend they improve this process. Having said this, there is a pool table, a tv, a kids corner and windows looking into the swimming pool to occupy anyone waiting.
Moving on from the check in process, the apartment was good. A very spacious kitchen/lounge/dining area which was clean on arrival. We had three bedrooms, one en-suite although the toilet was separate to the en-suite. It was a little bit on the squashed size in the en-suite bedroom but like other reviewers have mentioned, you are given enough comforts to make your stay comfortable - i.e. extra duvets, pillows etc.
The heating of the apartment was controlled by Reception which would have been fine had we all been skiing in the day but because one of the adults and the baby was home during the day, we needed the apartment to be warm throughout the day which ended up being a quick call to reception.
One thing I would mention is that if you have young kids that eat early, it's difficult to get dinner out at 5/6pm so you would need to make your own. Most restaurants started serving dinner from 7pm onwards.
Samoens is a beautiful village, very quaint and pretty. You can walk to the ski lift easily but again, if you have small kids, it might be easier to either drive to the lift, or up the mountain to save the hassle of them carrying their skis etc.
Overall, I would recommend this town as a ski resort and the aparthotel as somewhere to stay. It's not as luxurious as some of the other resorts I've heard about (those with kids clubs, babysitters, mini waterparks etc) but we had a great stay and made some great memories.
First of all thank you for your comment on our residence and also for your trust in choosing CGH for your vacations.
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Noticing the location of our residence in the village, indeed we are near the center of Samoens. We are situated very close to all the facilities needed during a week (supermarket, bakery, restaurants, sport shops, shuttles departure…).
We hope to see you soon one more time in La Reine Des Près.
Booked a 2 bed apartment with 1 ensuite and separate toilet and bathroom for 6 people. Large living room/kitchen with sunny balcony.All the equpment worked perfectly and there was plenty hot water! There is a lovely swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi in the complex. 5 mins from the lift, 3 mins to the supermarket and town centre. Great location!!!
Thanks you for your comment and for choosing CGH Residences & Spa for your vacations in Samoens.
We are glad to know that you appreciated your stay with us and liked the full equiped apartment and the complex.
We hope to see you soon again in Samoens.
The apartment hotel was furnished basically but with everything one would need to maximise your comfort and enjoyment of the village and slopes of Samoens.
Everything is kept clean and maintained very well, although we had a bit of trouble with one of the toilets in our apartment.
There is a spa facility in the main building with sauna, steam room, pool and jacuzzi to relax after a hard day on the slopes. These too were clean and well-maintained.
Location-wise it was brilliant. We suited up in our ski gear every morning and wandered the 100m or so to the Grand Massif lift station.
Overall really recommend this location and apartment hotel. It is however a bit pricey if you're on a budget, but as I was with friends the cost was split amongst ourselves.
