It's not difficult to understand the Crystal's popularity when you consider all that it offers in this highly sought after resort. This comfortable hotel has it all: in-house childcare, a fun-filled adventure play zone for children, easy access to the slopes and family rooms and suites. And above all, our Esprit commitment to giving you the best ski holiday ever.
It's hard to beat this location, being above the main resort centre yet situated right on the slopes of Courchevel 1850. The resort centre is an easy ski away and we offer our free complimentary minibus shuttle on our staff night off, from 5pm-10.30pm. There is also a resort ski shuttle every hour until 7.15pm.
The access to the slopes is second to none, you walk out of the hotel boot room directly onto the slopes of the Pralong! Then after one short button lift, you can ski down the Bellecôte piste immediately to the heart of 1850. Here, at La Croisette, the ski schools meet adult guests for ski or board lessons, whilst others may head west to the Méribel valley, or continue down tree-lined runs to Le Praz. Alternatively you can ski across to the Altiport button and across to the Biollay chairlift. At the end of the ski day, you can return directly to the ski room door.
The communal areas in the hotel are spacious and welcoming, and parents might wish to make the most of the sauna and relaxation area. The dining room and outside sun-terrace overlook the pistes and provide an ideal viewing spot for watching the early skiers or those on the last run home.
The suites and bedrooms are simply furnished, yet light and airy, with the variety sizes suiting most family combinations.
Our Adventure Play Structure is a unique feature here, designed to be enjoyed by children aged 4-12 years with its multi-level play zones, which include games, structures to climb upon and a slide. For younger children, an enclosed, separate play area contains a smaller slide, see-saw rocker and other soft play materials in a safe environment.
