My husband wanted to cycle Alpe D'huez - this hotel was available and looked 'fine' to us. It absolutely fulfilled all our expectations and more. Spacious, clean, great facilities, friendly, helpful staff - we could not have asked for more. Brilliantly located at the top of the mountain. Spectacular views. Shops and restaurants all within walking distance. While my husband cycled I drove down to Bourg D'Oisan, the public out door swimming pool is fantastic - €3 for the day! We will definitely return!

My only complaint would be that the apartment was too hot - hence the lower 'comfort' score. There was no heating on but as a new build it is very well insulated.
We visited at the very end of the summer season so more than half of the shops and restaurants were closed but we just used the apartment kitchen facilities. Some key items were missing such as a chopping board and spatula but good overall.
The pool and spa facilities were excellent and spotlessly clean. As we were end of season we sometimes had the whole leisure complex to ourselves.
We did not use the Spa Therapy facilities however the lady in the local bike hire shop had done so for a massage and rated it highly - she is a sports massage therapist herself so would guess that she knows what she is talking about.
Plan to return to Alpe D'Huez for next ski season as the range of runs looked great.
I would definitely love to return. The room which was really a small apartment was clean and comfortable and seemed brand new. The only downside was that we were required to do a very light cleaning before leaving, but the room was not stocked with cleaning products, ie. dishwasher detergent or floor cleaner. Oh, and we would have loved to have our windows open but the smokers below prevented this from happening...but, hey, that's Europe!

The location of the hotel is the key to whether you will be happy with you're choice of Mecure 1800. It is in 1800 which is almost a separate resort to the main strip with all the bars and resturants. So if your after nightlife then choose somewhere more central. The complex the hotel is in is a little tired but I couldn't fault the staff or the hotel itself. Your access to the lifts (main 1800 lift) is a short walk away, I'm sure in main season you could ski back with a little off piste. There is a bus service which runs to the main village which is a must as otherwise it's a 20 minute walk and uphill on the way back. So if your staying here you really want half board as otherwise your evening options are less than convienent and the hotel charge a premium as your cut off from the competition. If you have a car then none of that is a problem and more of a benefit, u can choose to see as little or as much of the lively centre as you please. Parking for our friends car we found nearby for free. (Not sure if that was due to being end of season). If you can get an all inclusive package and you are happy with the location then I think this hotel is still w good option. The benefit of its location are the views from the breakfast area and that most of the resort can be accessed quickly from the 1800 lift which we found quieter than the others. Do your research and think carefully about this one, sounds obvious but at least you will know what to expect and won't be disappointed.
The overall quality of the hotel was good, the rooms were clean (although you have to clean the rooms yourselves at the end of the week), well equipped, and offered a nice bar, free sauna, swimming pool, gym and ski locker facilities. "Ski to door" isn't entirely true, unless you count the 50m walk to the slopes but never caused us any problems, even with ski / snowboard boots and equipment.

This is a very pleasant and cosy hotel. Very nice restaurant with a proper four-course dinner (so much better than a buffet-style dinner). Swimming pool is nice, but the water was dirty this time (children loved it anyway). Sauna was a bit overcrowded and the jacuzzi was closed. Near to the kid's ski school. Breakfast could be better and the Internet is not the best one, particularly after 4:00 p.m. when everybody is back from skiing.
