Towards the end of the week my children preferred to spend the evening in the foyer with their ipads and their friends. They are not the quietest children and they much prefer talking and chattering rather than watching a movie. I found that everyone looked after each others kids and in the end it felt like staying at your friends house for the week! The hotel is not big so by day 4 or 5 I knew most of the children by name!
The kids were free to wander round and meet each other in the foyer and games area which they loved as it made them feel grown up and we could get ready in our rooms in peace! Oxygen ski school is impressive. The instructors made a real bond with the children as they did with us.
On the last evening Oxygen came to the hotel to present the kids with their awards and certificates. On reflection this was the best holiday that we have ever had and Mark Warner probably saved our marriage! To spend time with my husband knowing that the kids were as happy as I was, was very special indeed. I am already perusing the summer brochure as I can not imagine holidaying any other way now.

I do not tend to return to the same resorts but I would absolutely recommend the Christina for families if staying in Le Plagne. Hotel clean throughout - thanks Will for looking after our rooms. Bad - ski school. Though children really enjoyed it, it felt more like childcare. Our children's names weren't on the instructors lists, but were with MW and the Oxygen shop. With 13 people in the group we addressed this with MW rep who promised to get back to us f-f or via mobile but didn't - felt v end of season.
Bathroom couldn't really be described as a bathroom my husband had to use the loo with his knees out the door, shower room - once you got out the shower there was no room to dry yourself. Bed v small and decor poor. Unsure if the lift would take us to the right floor. Decor throughout the hotel v tired and looking dated not just end of season.
I just thought what a shame they think it's OK to charge such sums as it's skiing with mark warner, but it did not live up to their brand promise!
We stayed at this property for the first time in March as a family 2adults and a 5 year old and it was also our first time with Mark Warner as we had previously used another tour operator but thought we'd try MW for a change. Yes, OK the property itself is a little tired in areas so perhaps if you intended on spending the whole week inside then this is most likely not for you but otherwise it is an amazing ski base.
There are lift opposite and the gondola can be seen from the front of the hotel and is a short walk. The MW staff were ever so happy and helpful from the moment we arrived where they took all our bags to the room which is a massive help. That continued all week and I cannot fault the service, food really nice 3 course meal and afternoon tea and cakes , childcare my daughter actually cried as she said she'd miss one of the child carers and Oxygene ski school Other reviews mention noise but apart from one afternoon around when we could here some birthday celebrations, noise was not an issue.

If you are looking for great ski terrain, a property with great location, lovely food and lots of it and somewhere for your kids to be happy then Christina is fab. We will be back! We have recently returned from an awful week at chalet hotel Christina with Mark Warner.
The bar below, Scotty's, is a busy late bar which woke our whole family from There was very loud music, shouting, screaming and swearing constantly during this time. The customers included large groups of extremely drunk people many of whom spent time at the outside bar area, which was just below our rooms. We were very shocked as had been told it was a family hotel and as we have young children, we had booked early to request the best rooms appropriate for our needs.
Our young daughter in particular was very scared in the night due to the disturbing noise and aggression she could hear outside. This was very upsetting as we had to try to explain what was happening. We trusted Mark Warner as we have been loyal customers for several years. However, the overall response we received to our complaint was on the whole shocking. Initially the manager was clearly not interested in our complaints despite our several visits to reception in the early hours. On the first morning the manager said the noise was a one off and wouldn't happen again. When it was repeated for 2 more nights we complained again and were told the bar staff would be spoken to.
It was eventually taken more seriously and the noise was better on the last few nights. However, we then witnessed several occasions during the afternoons and early evenings when drunken groups at Scotty's were shouting, swearing, urinating and fighting, in full view of our young children from their bedroom window. It was also the route used by the children's clubs to ski school and other outings.
On this path there was vomit and broken glass which was not cleared away from the night before. On a positive note, the staff at the hotel were generally very helpful, in particular the childcare team and certain reception staff, who really assisted us to get through the week as best as possible, so thank you again to them. Also the evening meals were very good quality. Overall, we had a very stressful, frustrating and extremely exhausting week not due to skiing!
We will never book with Mark Warner again due to the above and hope no other family has to go through the terrible experience we did and have their much awaited and expensive! We have had 2 wonderful holidays at this hotel and would go again, its a great holiday venue, the children's club is very well organised with fun stuff for the kids to do and the staff are a delight, our 8 year old loved!
The rooms and decor are not modern and could do with an update but it is kept clean and the evening meal is first rate with as much very nice wine with your meal as you like. Mark, Gill and Jackson.
Which is better for an active family holiday – Neilson or Mark Warner?
This was our first holiday with Mark Warner and it will be our last! The description of spacious lounge and restaurant, decorated in warm wooden paneling and bright fabrics, comfortable bedrooms, a fabulous sun terrace where you can watch your children play in the snow and that you can relax in the snug bar were far, far from the truth!
The hotel is beyond tired and is in need of some radical refurbishment. The lift was not working for 3 days, the heating did not work for 3 days, our bathroom window remained permanently open as it was broken, the rooms are small and not comfortable, the supposed sun terrace was not decked out with chairs or tables so could not be used, we had no clean towels all week and the bar and restaurant are dark,drafty and cold.
It is such a shame as the hotel is in such a great location and the staff are extremely helpful, but due to the lack of investment in the hotel, Mark Warner are not being honest with their clientele about what they are booking. This hotel is not a hygienic and safe environment for young families. The carpets are so old that you would not let your child sit or crawl on them.
When we raised our feedback with Mark Warner we were basically told that everyone else had a fantastic week, so tough! Also, and I quote, "we believe the holiday was provided in line with our brochure promises", which is a joke! Flights Vacation Rentals Restaurants Things to do.
