Reviewed 23 January 2013

Wow, just got back from a week here last week. Very very friendly, helpful staff, Amazing food, amazing all inclusive drinks menu until 0200. Fantastic (the best) location - ski in and ski out and only 2 min walk to shopping center and night club. OK rooms (a bit small but a lot bigger than many rooms I have stayed in before).
Best food I have ever had at an all inclusive buffet.
Met loads of lovely people from France, Israel, Turkey, Latvia, Australia, US and England!I love this place and cannot wait to return next year!

We had an amazing time in Club Med Val Thorens. We were a group of 25, all in our mid-twenties. JC and his team were fantastic, always present and very accomodating. This really has the feel of the adults only resort that it is! You get off the slopes at lunch-music, drinks and snacks on the terrace. You get off the slopes in the afternoon-more drinks and snacks and entertainment to follow shortly. This is such great value for money. The food was great and varied, the drinks always freely flowing and such a festive atmoshphere in the bar/club each night. And lets not forget the skiing-it was fabulous too. Such a massive area that you really don't have to repeat slopes if you don't want to!

I would highly recommend this resort for groups of friends travelling together.

We stayed here over New Year 2012/13, wanted Club Med Val d'sere but fully booked, but we were not disappointed. We were lucky as there was lots of snow, and the sun shined all week, with an afternoon midweek where it was over-cast and snowed overnight. I guess a holiday can make or break a bit with weather, so we were over the moon with the constant sunshine ! The Chef of the resort JC was awesome he was there all the time, and a real showman at night, doing the dance routines with the other GO's on the roof on NY's Eve. The only slight disgruntle for me, was not much choice regarding boot and ski hire with Club Med, - half way through week my boots were hurting and i wanted to change but there was no other choice - there is also no hammam in the hotel unlike Val d'sere, there is a Leisure centre close by, but not the same as wandering down in your dressing gown in the hotel ! also the rooms really are tiny and literally the basics. But the GO's were so impressive everynight really making such an effort and such lovely young guys and girls, Would recommend. Thanks Club Med, JC and your lovely team at Val Thorens,

Room Tip: rooms here are basic, - but hey, your out skiing all day, so we are ok to compromise on this. It do...

I wanted a short term trip - not a full week, within great distance of Paris, with a fun/sporty still cosy atmosphere - with tasty healthy meals - a comfortable and quiet room with a view. Club med valtho can do it. You sense the Club Med service excellence right when you get into the bus. I had a nice view from the 6th floor! It is a 3 trident - so not luxury items - but the GO/GE team embodies true hospitality service. They want to see you happy at all times and delighted during the trip! It works as the GO/GE have a true passion for their work, they aim at high standards of service with a strong team spirit. You sense qualities in the team such as communication, result-oriented, energy, and adaptability! A special mention for Antoine and Arnaud GOs - they were a true example of my words. from the ski room to the shows - they deliver! I highly recommend the club med valtho!

Room Tip: 6th floor away from the elevator

.i have three ski vacation per year at different locations ,but this club is my favorite.i have been there for 3 years and already booked one for 2013.rooms are rather small,but all the rest is excellent.you have ski in and ski out experience with the all 3 vallee domain at your feet.
Bashir and the GO team are charming.Bashir can be found every where whether in restaurant,balconi and halls and greets every one with a big smile asking if everything is ok.
what i like in this club is its intimate and freindly atmosphere..it is not as big as other clubs, shows are not as spectacular,but (perhaps for this reason) you realy feel cosy and relaxed .food this year was even better then of last year.the restaurant staff are eager to assist you.(we were once late for lunch,yet the restaurant supervisor did a new table for us and took care of our food.)
another advantage is that this is a club for adults with no children running around .(i love children but not during my vacation).

I had spent an excellent ski week in I had spent an excellent ski week in this club last year thanks this club last year thanks to the incredible GO team led by Pierre, the animation Head ans despite the very poor performance of Bachir the Village Head.
I decided to home back this year with friends to Party ans ski, what a dreadfull club med experience!!!

Bachir is drill the village Head ans is still complètent unworthy of it. He is nowhere to be seen, ever. If you have a problem, you need to chase him around and, when you can find him he's not effective.

Marco, the animation Head completely lacks what is needed in an adult only club med to entertain. There was absolutely no "freestyle" spirit and no Party to be seen. The ski returns were worthy of family club med: no Party, no use of the terrasse despite the sun, no spirit! The nights were completely boring, clearly not what you expect of an adult club med!!!

As a side note, I round the general food quality to be decreasing.

Overall, I will not come back as long as these two are in charge and would advise anyone looking for an adult club med spirit against it.

Very very dissapointing!!!

After reading previous reviews i was a little worried what we would find at this hotel but i need not have worried. It is true that the rooms are fairly small and cramped but are clean.The boot room is too small for the number of users and needs to be revamped.
The good points are that the food was excellent, the staff very friendly and accomodating( apart from a couple of male bar staff who were ignorant),the entertainment was fun and delivered with enthusiasm.Each day we returned from the slopes there was a live band playing with cakes and hot chocolate in abundance.
Overall,if you want a hotel where you can turn up and not have to leave and spend any money during the times when you are not skiing this is that place.I will recommend it too friends. Well done to the staff.
