Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked the "Residence" through Skiworld and found the whole experience underwhelming. Whilst the apartment was modern, well furnished and had a great view, the hotel staff were extremely rude and unhelpful. We encountered this not just at the front desk, but when we called reception (where we were told that our issue was "not as important as others they were dealing with") and when we hired skis from the hotel shop (where the equipment certainly wasn't 5 star).

Even though we paid a considerable amount of money for the 10 person apartment in the so called 5 star Residence, we were constantly made to feel like second class citizens compared to the "Hotel" guests who clearly took priority. For a five star experience, we were forced to buy our own toilet paper, dishwasher tablets, bin bags and our rooms were not cleaned once during the week. We even had to take our towels down to reception midweek for the towel change (of which we were allowed only one during the week).

Our Resort Rep was also fairly indifferent and generally unfriendly and we won't be booking with Skiworld in the near future. Not least, because our 4:45am transfer to the airport for a 10am flight meant that we had to wait at Grenoble airport for three hours.

On the plus, the location can't be beaten and the drivers that were available were always very friendly and efficient. The Residence spa, whilst not as luxurious as the main hotel spa (which was unavailable to "Residence guests"), was well equipped with sauna, swimming pool and steam room.

We've just returned from a ski vacation at Doria-I Nor at Alpe D'Huez. I stayed with my son and daughter at a cozy apartment with 2 bedrooms, 2 showers, a living room, and a fully equipped kitchen. The location is great: right next to the gondola to the slopes. There are dry and wet saunas and a pool. The pool is spacious but not worm enough; we used it once and never returned for more. There is a free on-demand shuttle service which is superb: in a few minutes notice they would drop you off/ take from any location in town - awesome service. The staff is very helpful and attentive. My daughter was sick during our stay and they were very helpful, supplied the information we needed and took us to the clinique and back.

Surprised at some of the negative reviews. We had a studio apartment for two of us, one loo, one bathroom and one shower room. Also had 2 bunk beds. Room was spotless and well equipped and tons of space for 2 people. Ski lockers room excellent, I would agree with comments about foot access to the ski lift, however the complimentary bus for both drop off and pick up made that irrelevant.

The pool is nice, but they could do with a hot tub to take away these skiing aches.

Looked at hotel restaurant, but was expensive for even a ski resort, however there are enough restaurants within 10 minutes to cover all requirements.

Manageress and staff very helpful, especially like the breakfast bread delivery which is reasonably priced.

We had a room right beside the lifts which we were afraid would have been noisy, but didn't hear a thing.

Will be back.

Stayed in the Résidence apartments Daria I Noir recently. Our 4th time to Alpe Dhuez. It’s a lovely place to stay. We had the 2 bedroom apartment for family of 4. Loads of space, good kitchen area, lounge and dining area, 2 TVs, 2 toilets, 2 showers one bath, lovely and clean on arrival, room was ready when we arrived at 1.30. No check in wait They have 2 pools, you have to pay to use the spa area, but the pool that’s free is lovely. Super steam room, there is also a sauna. Just what you need after days skiing, the kids loved the pool.
The bread delivery to your door each morning is great. The Alpe Express lift is right next door to the building, just a couple of minutes from boot room up little path to side of building. Boot cupboard is good size and very warm! This lift takes to right to the Marmottes 1 lift, rifnel express, les romains and scare chair lift, also main ESF meeting area and shopping/restaurant area, lift pass office, so perfect really, no hassle at all.
The apartments we’ve stayed in on other trips here have been very basic, but good value, this place is worth the extra money!!!!!
Couple of tips from our stay, get yourself over to the pistes access via scare chair, a lot quieter than the main bowl area. Also the pistes over towards Vajaney are very quiet. Restaurant Le Roy Ladre is a pizzeria, well worth a visit, some of the larger bars/restaurants seem to throw out food quickly and isn’t always the best, the smaller family run places seem to be better. Always ring ahead to book. We used Sport 2000 rocky sports couple of minutes from building. The hotel has its own ski shop but we found it expensive so opted for elsewhere. There is a shopping area close by, bars restaurants small supermarket ski shops sledge area, just what you need close by.
These apartments are a great place to stay and it’s worth the extra money, ignore any negative comments, I guess they may of had teething problems when first opened but some people will find fault with anything! We used Sunweb, they are quite reasonable for price, includes lift pass. We will be back here at some point I’m sure. Big thumbs up

We stayed in a two bed apartment for a week ski trip. The apartment was modern with quite a funky design. It was compact, but did have decent storage space (4 one door floor to ceiling cupboards in the bedrooms and a cupboardin the entrance lobby), but we do travel light in terms of clothing. Full spec kitchen with oven, hob, microwave, large fridge, toaster and ketle, although plugs for toaster/kettle were nowhere near the work services, so had to rest them on the hob when in use. We had a bathroom and onsuite shower room, but only one toilet. The shower was huge and space could perhaps have been better used with a smaller shower and another toilet. There were no English speaking channels on the TV's. I know this is France, but in an international resort with lots of English speaking people, we thought this was odd, and despite having 'smart' TVs in the rooms, there we no apps like Netflix, and we couldn't seem to install them. Wifi however was good and free, so we watched movies on the Ipad. Welcome pack was miserly with 1 toilet roll, 3 dishwasher tablets, etc, so had to go and buy more. We had one sofa that could seat 3 people and an armchair that would fit a child but would be very uncomfortable for an adult. We could hear music from another apartment through the ventilation system. Took us a while to figure out where it was coming from, and fortunately it didn't last for long. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. All-in-all we thought the place was fine, but expensive for what it was and certainly not 5 star. There does however appear to be a lack of decent accommodation in Alpe D'Huez.

Our biggest advice though would be not to stay there during the Skideal Week, which is basically a festival run by the Israeli ski company Skideal. They promise 'wild apres ski parties' and they happen in the sports centre right next to the hotel/apartments, every night for a week until 1.30am. Sleep if you can!

The reception staffs entered my room without permission, and they charged for extra fees after
checking out showed rude attitude when discussing about the solutions. It was really awful. I cannot belive it is a 5-star hotel

Beautiful apartment in a great location. We spent more time at home in the evenings than out! Very spacious and well equipped. Just wish access to/from the hotel with skis was easier/ less slippery! Would definitely return.

Most of the pros and cons have been covered in other reviews. However, I was surprised no one mentioned the fact that the the building is located right next to an ice-driving track. Our apartment was on the ground floor and looked directly into the track where drivers roared around, revving and braking as they practised their ice-driving. The noise was unbearable. Unfortunately, our skiing was affected by adverse weather conditions during the week we were there so we had to put up with the noise longer than we would have liked. The sessions started at 8am and carried on till after dark. We were glad to get home for some peace and quiet.

We have just returned from Daria . We had a four night stay . What a
Wonderful stay . Ski shop on site and able to walk outside and step on the cable car . Bedroom was so comfortable with views over the slopes . Food was varied and delicious !

Spa was ok , great jacuzzi, great sauna . Steam room was very hot and not pleasant. Perhaps a few essential oils ?
Drinks , many choices but way too expensive. Way too expensive. The only let down .
Staff couldn’t be more helpful.
Would we return ? Absolutely.
