We are just back from a week at the Petit Palais. We were a party of 6, 4 first time skiers and 2 non skiers). The resort itself was great for newbies. The hotel was well paced about 50 yards from the main gondola. Ok there was a bit of a walk back up from the village to the hotel, but I'd prefer that than having to walk back and fore to the gondola station from a hotel in the village. We were on an all inclusive package which represented good value for money, particularly when the free bar was taken into account.
As for the food itself, the breakfast was ok (just) but the cooked range was a little limited and small. The packed lunch was monotonous and the baguettes something of a challenge but certainly saved money on buying lunches out. The evening menu was the best with 3 choices for each of the 3 courses. Most of the choices involved British food and that was probably just as well as the ones highlighted as the Italian options were very poor.
The hotel was clean, the bedrooms fine and the bath a welcome addition. For some reason the rooms were incredibly hot even with the radiator switched off and the window left open all night!
The boot room was well fitted with 2 sets of boot warmers for each room and plenty of ski racks.
All in all a great hotel for a first ski trip and I would go back there again.
