Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 January 2011

Excellent appartment that fits 6 adults and 2 children (also a smaller version available). Rocksresort is build on the slopes and is surrouned by shops, restaurants and a few meters away from two lifts. The build quality is very good, with kitchen and two spacious bathrooms with shower and bathtub. Four seperate bedrooms and a large living area and dining area.
Laax is a large ski and snowboard resort. Especially the snowboarding is very good.

First, it is important to understand this is a superb serviced apartments property, not a hotel: there is no room service, no minibar, daily housekeeping is optional and it consists of a series of buildings (so going for dinner in winter means going out in the cold with money (since you cannot charge your room in all of the nearby restaurants)).

That said, it is brilliantly executed. Overall the infrastructure is great: there is an underground car park, the appartment is well designed and convenient and entirely fitted with high quality items, from the great shower/bath combination to the Alessi teapot in the kitchen. One is next to the ski lifts, the ski school for adults and kids, and your room key lets you access a heated closet for your ski equipment underground.
While you have to get out to get food (unless you bought some at the local supermarket to stock your fridge), the resort pathways are kept free of snow and ice.
The ski resort itself plays in the same league than the hotel, the entire ski area is groomed and impeccably maintained, and offers a wide variety of slopes. By the way, the ski school is very popular and I recommend you book ahead on the laax.com website (you can book everything on the web)

In 2010, weeks were Sunday to Sunday which was a welcome change from the usual Saturday to Saturday: we went in an out with absolutely no traffic. Also unlike many other rented apartments, the basic essentials are provided here (oil, salt, pepper, toilet paper, ...) so you do not have to lug them around.

What's not to like?
Almost nothing:
- the white curtains in the master bedroom who totally fail to block any of the outside light; maybe this is to encourage you to go skying instead of oversleeping :)
-the incomplete english translation of the documentation in the room. German is the main language in Laax, with many german speaking visitors, and english often an afterthought.

Highly recommended.

I start with the worst things I have ever seen in a so-called luxury resort:
The rocksresort is far from being achieved, so many people are still working there that we have been awakened at 7AM in the morning by...a jackhammer destroying a stair built by mistake. It happened Friday AND Saturday morning.
Secondly, the room was full of dust because of all these works in progress.
At 10AM Sunday morning, we were about to check out just after putting all the luggages in the car, when the access cards have been disabled. Consequently we were stuck in the parking with a 3 years old kid and many luggages waiting for us in the corridor... so we had to go back to the reception just to ask for an access card to get our luggages stuck in the corridor... such a mess for so little things...
Last but not least it took me THREE days and 3 phone calls to get an effective reservation. First call they did not send me the reservation, then I call them back 2 days after and they tell me that I have no reservation...Finally one day before the start of the trip they call me FOUR times at my workplace... it took them one hour and 3 emails to get a confirmation. My boss was happy.
However, the flat was gorgeous and the personnel very friendly. I guess that it s just the worst hotel management in the world...
