Visitor Reviews of Méribel


Larry from Switzerland writes:

I happened across this today, and found it amusing to read the comment from this year, about noise in Meribel, followed, hilariously, by a suggestion of heading to V d'Isere for something more quiet. That simply isn't the case!

Quite simply, don't stay at an apartment in the center of a town if you want a quiet night's sleep! Meribel is a large resort, known for it's great nightlife and huge ski area and chalets not in the town center, that don't get the noise. I stayed at one only last week, ski in-ski out; no noise at all! It sounds like you had an apartment or chalet near the local night club, although these days there are shhhh! police outside, making people be quiet when they leave.

Others who comment on your lunch or food being 28€ or more per person, well, that's what you get for eating at expensive mountain restaurants. There are cheaper places available, and I know, because I eat at them. Stop moaning, it's not Meribel, it's every resort. It's a ski/board holiday, live with it, or don't go.; simple.

The more you avoid the resort, the more snow and freshies there are for those of us who like it quiet! ;)
