This is a fantastic location. Great value and does the job!
We booked a 1 bedroom apartment in the Saskia. When we checked in they had a mix up and had 2 reservations under my name. after about 45 mins they eventually gave us the keys to a room - in the next door Malinka. We trapsed over with all our luggage only to find it was a studio. i.e. 2 single sofa beds in lounge, and 1 bunk bed in the entrance near door. Fine if thats what you have booked - but as we were a group of 4 adult women, not suitable and not what we booked.
After another 45 minutes of explaining and standing firm - we eventually got the keys to another room. All fine. it was a 1 bed apartment.
make sure you get what you book!
After that initial problem all was fine. these are basic but well equipped clean apartment right on the edge of the slope. We would definitely come back here. View was amazing.
all the bedding and towels were clean - towels come in a sealed packet. kitchen has microwave, fridge, dishwasher and hob. we did eat in 2 of the 4 nights and breakfast everyday. a little box is provided which contained cleaning things - clothes, dishwasher tablets, liquid.plenty for our 4 night stay.
Toilet was separate from bathroom - again good, so we werent fighting over it when someone was in shower!
There's a secure ski room - each room has its own key to a large tall locker to put skis after a day on the slopes. plenty of room for 4 sets.
right near various bars, restaurants and a supermarket.

Second time we have stayed here. You really get what you pay for- we were 10 friends in 2 six bed apartments who don't mind a bit of a squeeze. If you want some space then maximum of 4 in the 6 bed apartment. The double bed, the bunks and the sofa beds are all comfortable. At the end of 4 hard days skiing, none of us had any difficulty getting to sleep! It includes towels and clean linen, basic cleaning equipment and 1 toilet roll (so you need more!)
They are basic but again for the price, what can you expect. They are the highest accommodation of the resort so very easy to ski/board back to at the end of the day, drop your kit off and a 5 minute walk to the pubs. You have to be fit for the walk but the escalators make the walk OK.
The reception tends to be closed a lot- we had to phone to get the code to get our key. When reception is open the staff are friendly and helpful and speak good English.
We love the skiing in Avoriaz - it is high so gets some great snow until the start of April. Great resort for families too. We will definitely stay here when we go back.
very good overall, more information on the resort would have been nice as we arrived on the telecabin and had no idea what to do from that point on, no info or maps available we had to struggle up hill with bags across the whole resort through snow with no idea where we were heading we know now that you call a horse and cart or use a trolley but we had to learn the hard way when we arrived at the hotel at two in the afternoon reception was closed and we couldnt get keys untill five however there was a number to call and the keys are left in key pad box you ring a number and they give you a code and you help yourself great idea as long as you can get mobile reception, great location bit dated but clean and warm and the staff when there were very nice.
This is the fourth summer I have stayed in Avoriaz, a purpose built resort high up in the mountains. On each visit, I have enjoyed my stay although it is important to have a car as the location is quite remote. The original buildings are starting to look somewhat tired now but overall internal condition is clean, warm & cosy. As the resort is at 1800m above sea level, it is at the mercy of the weather. Facilities are good on site, both for activities and also bars/restaurants. I would definitely return in the future, possibly for a skiing trip...
