“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

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.

Very large, spacious room.
Delicous food and good wine in the restaurant.
Ski in-ski out club in the middle of a big ski area linked to Val d'Isere.
All inclusive concept.
Nice ski room.
Kind and helpful staff directed by Nathalie who is always present and who tries to emerge a lost Club Med spirit.
Lively evening entertainment.
Only negative point is no complimentary wireless internet access.

Stayed in main hotel 1week before Xmas. Club Med lived upto its usual standard, with attentive staff, plentiful food and drink. Location is fantastic at the highest village in the Tignes resort, allowing as near to guaranteed ski in/out for this time of year. Food was perhaps a little lacking compared to other summer Club Med locations, mainly due to limited space. 2 gripes - 20 Euros for wifi access, but so poor in speed that it was virtually unusable, and kept kicking you off the network. Should be free if they cannot guarantee as decent level of service. Second gripe was being in a room on the front entrance side of the hotel - late night drinkers from other hotels, mainly British I'm afraid, were shouting and making a lot of fuss during the night - Club Med really need to work with the Gendarmes to stop this as it was the cause of many poor nights sleep for those rooms on that side of the hotel.

Room Tip: Demand a room on the slope side of hotel. Don't hire skis and boots from Club Med - SkiSet are...

I had a great ski vacation in Tignes but it could be much better!
Overall the hotel is not bad and the staff is trying to entertain like in all club meds.

I checked into room 1225 which is a handy cap room with no hot tub which was disappointing but there were no other available rooms.

Worst then that, the water temperature was not stable. One second it is cold and a second later burning hot. The shower is so small that you can't even move a side. I complained twice even to the chef de vilage but it was not fixed. For a week I had to take terrible showers which is not fun when you want to defrost and relax after skiing!!!

In addition, the spa facility and pool is very mediocre for such a hotel!

Must say that the food was good and some of the nights was even excellent!

We went for a day to club med in Val Desire and it seems much nicer facility and they have a beautiful spa facility.

I'm always a bit skeptical when choosing Club Med for a holiday destination as i find they can sometimes be a bit over the top. However i was pleasantly surprised. After check-in there was a briefing about how and where to collect rental skis and boots. Then off to the room, which was a small trek to a separate building across the road. The Room was way to small for my standards and i found myself having to slide across the bed to navigate across it as there was usually a suitcase blocking the meter wide pathway between the bed and the wall. Nonetheless the beds were sleep-able. Room was clean, and cleaned regularly to a decent standard. Ski rental clerks were very helpful and understanding of my specific needs on the slopes. However this meant there was a 30-40 minute wait. Setting up ski school lessons was also a diddle, with the Esf desk next to reception. Location was very good, however the ski lockers would get very crowded in the morning and after lunch, and the walk up the stairs to the slopes is very hard in ski boots. Food was one of the highlights of the hotel. The buffet restaurant is huge an easily fitted our group of 20, every morning and evening. the food was mediocre, however the bottomless drinks and ice cream made up for it.

I decided to try Tignes over Val D'isere last year. Club Med formula works for me although I may change to stg else in the future. Went with a friend and we had single rooms in the 2nd property. Very small rooms and very dated building. However, the quality of the skiing area and the fact that the food is better than ValD makes me recommend this place.Excellent spot for March skiing as you are high up and do not have to deal with slush in your afternoon run. the quality of the ski groups and instruction is also better than Val...

Belgian ski instructor Serges was excellent. Ski in and out was so useful. Room did not appear to have been vacuumed before our arrival and was not vacuumed whilst we were there. On arrival there was hair on bathroom floor which was still there when we left. Space between double bed and wall on both sides was less than20 cm (8 inches) so you had to sidle down with your feet at an angle to get into bed.......lots of bruised lower legs! We asked (two members of staff over two days) whether it would be possible to have a kettle, they both went off to find out but neither ever came back to us with a reply.
