Adagio Marne La Vallee Val d’Europe

We did a one night, pre-Disney stopover at the Adagio.  It’s an aparthotel situated in Val d’Europe and provides a shuttle bus to the parks which we didn’t use as we were driving.  We had a one bedroom apartment for our family of 4, holidaying with friends, a family of 5.

Location

It’s close to the Val d’Europe shopping centre which we’ve never visited.  There’s a supermarket nearby and restaurants, if you want a break from the parks.  Boot Hill Flora recommends a visit for stocking up on snacks, supplies if you fancy cooking for yourself or a mooch around the shops.  We walked to the train station and headed into Paris for the afternoon and evening.  It can’t have been far as the children all did it without a moan.

Amenities

The apartment was far more spacious than I thought it would be.  Parts of it looked a little tired but it was very clean.  The living space had sofas, table and chairs and a small kitchen area.  There was a kettle and coffee maker, dishwasher, microwave and hob.  A small cleaning kit was provided with a couple of dishwasher tablets.  All we did was make a cuppa and wash up.  Our children slept in the living room on the sofa beds – they were thrilled it was two single beds rather than sharing.  There’s often a lot of sharing in the hotels!  We had a small room with a double bed.  It was very comfortable and everyone had a good night’s sleep – the blackout curtains really helped.

There is a pool which we didn’t have time to use.  We did make use of the gated parking, we paid on check-in although as it was a Sunday, our friends parked on the roads.  It was fairly busy there and we were more than happy to pay for the secure parking.  The hotel also offers a breakfast buffet for a fee and they also had bread and pastries you could buy to eat in your apartment.  We were keen to get to Disney so left before breakfast to make the most of Extra Magic Hours and grabbed a pastry and a drink in Starbucks in the village.  It was a really short drive – I was quite surprised!
