Snowbeds says

 

Part of the massive Three Valleys ski area popular with us Brits since it was founded in 1938 by a British officer.
The resort is set up to make everything as easy as possible for the British vistor with English speaking ski schools.
The accommodation is of a good standard and tends to be well maintained.
Make sure you understand where in Meribel you will be located as it has spread out considerably from the centre.Meribel Village for example is a completely different area, as is Meribel Mottarett
 
The resort is situated right in the centre of the Three Valleys so it opens up a huge amount of skiing for every level.
 
There are plenty of parks in and around Meribel and some great terrain.

Where is it?

 

Apres ski
 
 
Méribel has no shortage of great spots where you can amuse yourself when the lifts shut for the day. 
The Olympic Centre built for the 1992 Winter Olympics is open daily, offering a 25m indoor swimming pool, children’s pool, water slide, fitness centre, climbing wall, spa and indoor ice-rink. Snow-shoeing, horse-sleigh tours, snowmobiling and walking routes are also available.
Night life and pubs.
Jack's Bar: Ideally located next to the bottom of the piste the guys at Jack’s have managed to blend fun and sophistication to create a truly enjoyable après ski experience. Pop in for some great live music, comedians and if you're feeling peckish, nestled round the back of Jack's is Evolution Bar & Cafe where you can feast on the legendary Bad Boy Buger, or try their alternative après which comes with home made smoothies, vin chaud and board games.
La Taverne: With great food, live music and open right through from 8am to 2am this is a great place to hang out on the terrace end enjoy the vibes. With regular live music, great food, party nights and atmosphere it's well worth a look. You'll find it right in the heart of Meribel just a stone's throw from the pistes.
Le Rond Point: right on the main Doron piste at the top of the resort, the ‘Ronnie’ is a perennial favourite with season workers and holiday makers. Live bands every day from 5-7pm, large sun terrace, BBQ, and infamous toffee vodka shots. If skiing home becomes impracticable, take the free bus instead.
Doron Le Pub: another legendary spot for partying, the Pub is right in the centre of Méribel next to the Tourist Office. Live bands play most afternoons from 5pm and evenings from 10.30pm. Large, loud and fun, with all the live sport on big screens Scotts: downstairs from the Pub, this is run by the same company, but offers slightly more chilled après-ski with comfy sofas and a large cocktail menu.
Barometer: More upmarket and rather more civilized spot for après-ski, the Barometer is in Méribel centre, and known for its beautiful bar staff and tasteful surroundings.
Le Poste (de secours): is Méribel’s most cosmopolitan and smartest bar. Prices are high, clientele is smart. Confusingly located next door to La Poste, the Post Office in Méribel centre.
Hotel le Grand Coeur: If your idea of après-ski involves patisseries and hot chocolate served from silver jugs by uniformed French waiters, then enjoy a thoroughly civilized après-ski tea time in Méribel’s smartest four star hotel lounge bar.
 
Or, if ‘spa’ rather than ‘bar’ appeals, don’t forget that Méribel offers a relaxation area and spa in the Sports Complex, the Olympic Centre, and several of the hotels offer spas and treatments.
 
What others say
 
From the Telegraph.
"It’s easily my favourite French resort, not least because of its welcoming architecture, but also because of its lively après and good, family-friendly restaurants. And, of course, it’s the perfect springboard to the Trois Vallées."
