As a family we stayed at this hotel for the first week of January for 3/4 years in a row, 8 years ago. However we are still very familiar with it because we come to Val D'isere every year and many family friends still stay at Barmes and we frequently visit them. Positives: -SPA area is well kept and generally... More

The Hotel was very nice, sitting next to the slopes. They have 2 restaurants (although they claim to have 3 but one is part of the other). We enjoyed all the three but definetely recommend the *Michelin one for slow and nice family dinner. The Savoyarde one is also great for fondue and raclette. The spa and swimming pool are... More

I usually stay in ski-in ski-out hotels. I knew the hotel did not have ski-in/out but the staff is one the best i saw till today. Rooms are comfy enough. Great lobby and playing rooms for kids. One of the big bar lobby in Val D'isere. The rooms close the lift might be little noisy. Perfect for family vacation. 5... More
