Langley Hotel Tango
Ranked #12 of 28 Hotels in Val Thorens
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 March 2013

We stayed at the Tango in early January, and chose it for the funky decor in the brochure - it seemed so different from everything else available. The staff could not do enough for us, particularly Maud. The massages were excellent, and the food delicious. Yes, I can see why some reviews say the portions were small, but the quality and variety made up for it. We requested a top floor room given previous reviews and it paid off - the views were fabulous, and there was very little noise transferred from the great atmosphere in the bar if we wanted to get an early night.
The only downside was that we couldn't always get our boots on the racks in the drying room, so I think they might want to make some more space?
Val Thorens was a great place to stay and ski/board. We are slightly different levels, and the area catered for each of needs/wants perfectly. We didn't wait long to get on any lifts and the snow was fabulous.
We are not normally people to revisit places as there is so much of the world to explore, but in this instance, we are looking forward to booking our stay at Tango next season for some more fun!

Room Tip: Request a high floor (4th)

Just spent a week at the Hotel Tango and it was everything we expected and more.
The staff are all working in harmony and go out of their way to be extra helpful at all times. The cleaner was e caption all and our room was always serviced to the highest level before we returned from breakfast each day.

The food though a set menu offering no alternative choice was to a very high standard and quality.

If you choose to order from the pizza menus then again it is excellent.


Not a true ski in ski out but as near as this resort offers.


The weather was not the best, 2 day lift closure due to high winds and the hotel bar afforded us sanctuary with a high level of in house music too.


People come from far across the village so make sure you get in there early.

Not sure if we will return to Val T but if we do we will be staying here

We spent a week in Val Thorens at Hotel Tango at the end of January, 2013. Group of 3x, ages 26, 27 and 19. (summary at the bottom if you dont want to read!)

Location: The Hotel is basically ski in, ski out. You can navigate a narrow, quite steep (not ideal for boarders) track straight onto the piste and on the way back can ski right to the opposite side of the road from the hotel. If its thick, you could ski/board over the road (although we did see some police telling some skiiers off for doing this) but its not worth scratching your board for a few feet of walking! Hotel is near the top of the resort so great views over the town & down the valley, especially from the top floor. Very close to pubs/shops etc.

Arrival: We arrived late in the evening (thanks to some miscommunication between Crystal and our coach driver!) but were welcomed by the friendly staff at Tango. We were checked in quickly and advised we could pop our boards in the nearby equipment room to save lugging them upstairs, and head back down for some food. No problem that we were so late, so that was a good first impression. (*Not a great impression of Crystal though as they seemed alittle unorganised. They hadn't communicated the numbers to the driver correctly who refused to take all of us in one go from Chambery. Luckily we got on the first coach, I think a few others had to tag along with another group going the same way. Didnt really bother us, although we were stood outside the coach waiting for about 30mins in the snow whilst they "discussed"). Once we got going the transfer from Chambery took roughly an hour and a half longer than it should have aswell. Worth the wait though!

Rooms: Our room was on the 4th floor, and I have to say must have been the pick of the Hotel's room as far as the view goes. We were right in the middle under the peak of the roof. Facing the town and the valley. The highest point of the hotel and probably the most unobstructed view. Perfect! 3x of us sharing, was a little cramped I suppose but the room was on two levels (top level had very little head room and could not be stood up in, accessed by a pretty precarious ladder, whihc you should not attempt in the dark/after a few beers). Decor is awesome; very funky and nicely finished. Nice HD TV with plenty of channels, very handy fridge and loads of hook to hang your gear. Couple of gripes: There's no kettle! And the wet room, whilst a nice idea on paper is not ideal for people sharing. The room would remian soaked most of the day (no extractor fan) so was a bit awkward to get ready after someone had showered. Make some ground rules/a schedule and stick to it for best results! The view as I say was unbeatable and the balcony was a nice addition. Wifi signal even on the top floor was ok, even though its only advertised as "available in the lobby". Towels could hav been change more regularly, especially as you were using one to mop up the wet room floor each morning ;)

Hotel: Clean, nice decor, very modern and trendy. Free Wifi and equipment room are great touches, althought the latter does get a bit full, especially if you're late off the slopes. Lift was a bit temperamental all week (wouldn't work on several occasions - including our last day when we were trying to lug cases down from the top floor!) but was probably just a maintence issue. The Hotel is marketed and caters to the 'younger' crowd, and although there were groups of all ages enjoying themselves, I could't help but feel that some of the more mature folk or even just the quieter couples might feel a bit out of place or unwelcome. Thats not the case, of course, as the staff are very welsoming and friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are having a nice time. Spa available, but we didnt try it.

Bar: The bar is VERY busy every night of the week, with loud live music and DJs most nights. Its not the place for a quiet evening drink unless you get there early and it's a real hub of Val Thorens nightlife, especially with the locals. If you're alight sleeper: don't stay on the lower floors as the music is very audible. Was fine on the top floor though!

Restaurant: Again, very trendy and a lot of thought put into the decor & presentation. Food was very nice indeed but it is worth stressing that THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL SKI RESORT "ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET" TYPE DEAL! So dont expect it and you wont be dissapointed. Theres one starter and one main course on the half board/full board menu which were always really delicious. If you dont like whats on offer the staff will be happy to offer an alternative (although that usually just included changing the type of meat. not sure how they'd handle vegetarians!). Was a bit jarring at first being offered only one dish, but just trust the chefs as they do a fantastic job. Portions were fine for us. You can also order off the main menu but will have to pay full price. We tried a few things off the main menu and I can definitely recommend the Tango Burger! they serve in two sittings (6.30pm and 8.30pm) Breakfast is a buffet with plenty of options from cold meats, cheeses, various eggs, croissants, homemade breads, cereals, porridge, fruit, yoghurts, juices, coffee and hot chocolate - and its all restocked regularly. We were never left wanting!

Crystal Rep: If I'd have seen one at the hotel all week I'd be able to comment :) Was supposed to be there upon our arrival but was nowehere to be seen. I text him once in the week to ask about our departure details and spoke breifly on the phone. Can't remember his name but didnt sound to enthusiastic tbh. We didnt go to the welcome meeting to be fair (is schedule AFTER your first days skiing anyway, which is rather silly!) so maybe we'd have gotten a better impression there. Are past experience (namely in Iso-Syote, Finland) was the exact opposite: Extremely attentive and friendly, very helpful and always around the hotel in the mornings/evenings. Maybe our expecatations were too high coming from a small resort like Iso to a big place like VT ;). There was also the problem with the coach but that wasn't really anyones fault. Wasn't a good start though and some other people did get quite annoyed about the wait/lack of info. And to finish, we left way too early on the Saturday so had a stop off at a service station to kill the time! Still had way to long to wait in the airport though - could have had at least another hour or so in the resort and made it to Chambery in good time. Although given how late they were when we arrived maybe they didnt want to take any chances...

Overall: We had a fantastic time in Val Thorens and that's in no small part thanks to Hotel Tango. A great location and the perfect place to base yourself for a lively, fun and memorable week on the snow. Speaking of snow, we had tonnes and barring a couple of windy days the conditions were perfect. Will be back next year for sure!

Summary (incase you couldn't be bothered to read all that!)

Pros:
Friendly staff
Lively atmosphere
Nice rooms
Great location in a fantastic resort!
Great food
Free Wifi & Equipment room
Ski Out (and almost back in)


Cons:
Might be too lively for some
Wet rooms are a silly idea
Very busy bar (no priority for guests at the bar, get there early!)
Loud music pretty much every night, will be a problem for light sleepers on the lower floors
Only one option on the Half Board menu each night
Crystal Ski were a bit sloppy on this occasion

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor and facing West down the valley. Cannot be beat! If you're lucky eno...

Conveniently located for the slopes; friendly and professional staff; clean rooms and great showers. Boot and ski room first class and on the ground floor next to the reception so no walking up and downstairs with ski boots and skis! Despite what others have said, the food is superb and well planned for its nutritious content - we thought the portion sizes were spot on. The bar is lively and an obvious favourite with the ski instructors. The live band are great and so is the resident singer/DJ. We were a small group of mixed ages and it worked well for us though I think it is ideal for the 18-30 age group.

Room Tip: There are 4 floors and next timeI would try and request a room ending in 02 or 03
