We booked this hotel through the Crystal finest brochure - and stayed on a half-board basis over Christmas 2010.
This is a great hotel for skiers. The location means it is just a minutes walk into the centre of town, so close enough to easily slide to - but quiet enough to escape the nighttime revelers. It has also an easy ski in ski out location.
The rooms were small but perfectly formed - the only complaint from my partner (of over 6 foot) was that the bath was cramped making it difficult for him to wash his knees or anything above the waist - the pressure in the hot water was also slightly temperamental causing the shower attachment to be erratic. I would have also appreciated tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
The staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful throughout our stay, the food was well cooked, substantial and tasty - but choice was limited.
We found the bar prices on the high side (as was found throughout the resort), but the choice of local wines at dinner time were of a high quality and very reasonable.
Although I have only been to Val Thorens in the winter season. I would definantly recommend this hotel for both an energetic ski-ing holiday or just for those who wish a quiet time reading a book in front of a roaring log fire.
