My friend and I have just returned from a week in Val Thorens and despite the majority of reviews being pretty damning I struggled to find too much wrong with this hotel for the price. We were all in for less than £400 per person and I think people need a reality check at times. Yes it can be a little noisy at night and the room that we had was pretty small but it was clean and the location is ideal.
The hotel does attract a young crowd so if that doesn't fit then alternative accommodation may be more suitable.
If it is the same price next year then I wouldn't hesitate in booking again! More
