Rated as the best hotel in val disere , I'm not so sure...starting with the negatives , complete lack of atmosphere in the bar even with live band it just did not feel welcoming and cosy as an alpine bar should..., food at best, very average both breakfast ( think Novotel ...) and dinner, esp in the rotisserie ,lovely room...

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

We shared a family suite at "Les Barmes" for our ski clossing weekend and it was beautiful. The most relevant thing was the service; we could find no fault with it. They knew at all times who we were and tried to anticipate every wish (and did so many times). The only thing I found fault with was the food;... More

My third stay at 'Les Barmes' last week and it keeps getting better. Indeed this time it was faultless. Valerie is to be congratulated for putting together a fantastic team of staff;polite,charming, smiling, efficient, helpful. Without exception. The hotel itself is fabulous: spacious, beautiful interiors, modern 'alpine rustic' but very much with all 'mod cons'. Great spa, gym and pool.... More

We had dinner at the Michelin-starred restaurant of this hotel: simply amazing! the dining room is tastefully decorated with the tables far apart from one another to give the diners privacy and a sense of luxury. We had the fish dishes and the coquilles Saint-Jacques and they were all utterly delicious. Together with the 'amuse-vouches' which came with our aperitif... More

We just had spent great 4 nights at the Les Barmes Valdiz. Hotel has great access to slopes (both IN and OUT) and after 10 years in operation it still keeps high standard of rooms and all other premises. What makes the hotel different to other Valdiz 5 stars is that is more quiet and relaxed, more modern luxury than... More

We did not stay in the hotel but have dined at the restaurant. This is a place to dine with comfort in a chalet-styled restaurant. The menu had set menu options with the buffet of starters, cheeses and desserts. We were impressed by a great wine selection. The somelier has made our evening.

Fantastic Staff!! The Hotel is gorgeous, the gourmet restaurant excellent, and the service throughout the hotel is world class! Its not often that I find such gracious staff and service in the five star hotels in France. The F & B staff were extremely attentive to my vegetarian needs. Everyone greeted me with genuine smiles whether at reception, in the... More
