I’ve stayed at the Escondus several times and I would recommend it. The location is perfect. There is a car park and it is on the piste, next to the ESI ski school and a small shopping centre with a Spar shop, bakery and news agent. Across the road is the ski hire shop Sport 2000 La Charpenterie Sports. You...

we stayed two nights here and had an amazing couple of days. The hotel is very well decorated, the rooms are comfortable, although not huge, with a lovely balcony terrace for every room. Best thing is the location as it is right next to one of the ski lifts. The staff are extremely helpful and we will definitely be back!

Positives: A great hotel if you are heading to Vars for skiing/snowboarding as the hotel is smack bang next to the lifts - so no need to get up at the crack of dawn! All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was spotlessly clean, our bedroom was cleaned daily and fresh towels provided. The breakfast was...

Civilised (waitress service), friendly, relaxing lunch with superb menu (including a good quality, child-friendly kids menu), clean facilities, ski in-ski out or right next to the Point Show navette bus stop. Prices are comparable to the less desirable self service places on the mountain, what's not to love? We stayed 6 days in Vars, found Les Escondus on day 3...

The hotel had been recently renovated and has now become a 3 star hotel. The room is very spacious - the children have bunk beds in their...

Recently renovated, the rooms are really nice and practical, staff is very friendly and made a big effort to prepare milk/lactose-free meals for our allergic daughter throughout the week. Thank you!!! You can jump on the pistes right after breakfast, it's only 5m away!

French cuisine excellent, rooms comfortable but a bit small, good shower room, situated on the piste close to lifts, has heated ski lockers. Hotel restaurant open to non residents.Restaurent service rather slow, good for long leisurely meal. Rooms have a balcony.

Ate lunch here twice (family with kids) in the last week of January 2016. The staff were really friendly and the choice of food on the menu was very good and varied. Wine is also good value by the pichet. The daily 'plat di jour' always looks inventive (I had beautifully cooked lamb with fried gnocchi and ratatouille on my...

I stayed here while in Vars and the hotel staff was great. The hotel was clean and they made sure I had everything I needed. I ate at the restaurant and the food was very good. The hotel has access to a trail so you can ski in/out.

Fabulous location, mouth watering food, stunning room with stunning view, wonderful staff and a fantastic fun filled apres ski bar. Vars ski area is fab but what makes it so much better is this fabulous hotel and it's wonderful staff. I urge you to go try it
