This hotell was OK, a little run down in places. The dishwasher did not function properly, the lighting in the apartment was pretty poor. However the Spa was on the other hand absolutely worth it which made the stay really pleasant. Ski out possibilites but not so easy to ski in as the last bit of slope was far too... More

We came with a very large party and were dissatisfied with the service we received - They knew when our very large group was arriving and still made us wait outside in the cold for 2 hours because reception was closed from 12-3pm - Upon arrival the rooms were dirty and looked like they had barely been cleaned after the...

Positives - The location is excellent, genuine ski in ski out. The 'campus' is good with a bakery, shop and a few restaurants Negatives - Very very cramped, disgusting bedding provided, was dirty when we arrived, didn't have enough keys for our party, mouldy shower room Would be good if it had a bit of a renovation but wouldn't recommend

The apartments are the biggest I have stayed in in Val Thoren (we stayed in 614 capacity 4-6 people) it made such a difference. One member of our party broke their ankle on the first day and had to have an operation. The receptionists were the most helpful people I have ever met and organised all logistics with a smile!...

Let it be said: Les Balcons is not a luxury establishment, but it's not as bad as some reviews would have it. The standard is average but it's a functional place, close to the slopes (almost ski in/ski out), and with a Sherpa supermarket conveniently located on the premises. Our travel agency advertised Les Balcons as 3-star, which I would... More

11 of us stayed in Chalet Poire in Les Balcons and had a great week. The chalet was much better than we were expecting it to be and the rooms were a decent size. I don't understand the negative reviews - if you want luxury, you need to pay more! But this was actually better than basic. Our chalet-host Phil... More

Just home from a week skiing in Val Thorens which was great but the accommodation in Les Balcons was poor. Advertised as 4star but definitely it is not, I always book 4* so this was a real disappointment. We had a 5 person apartment but luckily only 3 of us were staying there, if there was 5 of us it...

We stayed in a Crystal operated apartment. It was comfortable enough and handy for all the facilities. You can actually ski in and out though thr last bit above the chalets is a bit of a battlefield late afternoon. Wifi coverage and system not very reliable and spa /pool area a bit busy. Apart from that OK

Les Balcons is well situated in Val Thorens and offers the chance to ski down to the lift from the boot room in the morning and to ski back to the other side of the chalet in the evening - something which is important if you hate walking in ski boots like me! Slight walk into the centre of town... More

We weren't allowed in the room until 5PM, meaning we had to stand around for 4 hours doing nothing. The Room was ok, but it wasn't exactly the cleanest, looked like it hadn't been cleaned properly, and the kitchen was tiny/falling apart (Cupboards all bent etc). Hot water wasn't working at first, took 2 engineers 30 minutes to get the... More
