This was my first stay at a Club Med hotel so had no particular expectations and after reading some of the reviews was beginning to get a little nervous about the standard of the rooms. I was very pleasantly surprised as we had a slope side room with plenty of space. I am used to very small bedrooms in ski hotels/chalets/apartments but my Club room was one of the biggest I have used. A clean bathroom with bath/over bath shower and a separate toilet made it even more convenient for two people to get ready for an early start. We were disturbed a couple of nights by the noise of piste bashers who were out on the slopes in the early hours of the morning making the slopes safe after a heavy fall of snow. They start and end their shift at the bottom of the slope outside the hotel so expect some noise from them.
Although ski school was included in the cost of our holiday we did not use it. The cost of ski, boots and helmet hire was very expensive and if I had read an earlier review, would have used Skiset just across the road from the hotel.
We were there for the Christmas week and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere created by the staff. I must compliment the staff for all of their hard work. They were constantly on the go and could be seen in various guises around the hotel. Reception, behind the bar, involved in the evening show, collecting glasses, talking to guests, handing out sweets, carrying bags, etc, etc. Nothing was too much trouble.
The food at the hotel was great and more than adequate for fussy teenage appetites. Lots of choice and good quality. I was also pleasantly surprised to be given premium brand alcohol in the 'all inclusive' bar so have no complaints there either.
All in all it was a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and every member of our group said they would definitely go back to Club Med Tignes Val Claret if given the opportunity.
Thank you to all at Club Med Tignes.
