We have just finished our 3 year visit to Club Med Tignes Val Claret. It has been completely re furbished. It has moved up a star to 4 star. We love the experience that Club Med gives you. They organise it all and you have nothing to worry about as everything is included in the price. The flights from Britain are around 90 to 120 minutes and the transfer time from the airport to the resort, weather permitting is around 165 minutes.
The Bedroom - I have posted some photos which represents a club room. If you look further down the traveller photos you will see mine from last year which will let you see the changes. They have replace all the bedroom fittings and gave the rooms a lovely cosy feel. The décor was really nice, the beds were comfortable but you are rarely in the room. Down side they have changed the heating from oil to electric. It was controlled from a central control room which was not good as we had a faulty patio door sensor which caused the heating to stay off, so the room was a little chilly and when it did work it was very drying. The oil heating was much more comfortable. The lighting in the bedroom is woeful. so dim you can hardly see.
The Restaurant - was excellent. The hotel now being a four star now serves 4 star food which was really good they have food to suits all tastes from kids to a la carte dinners. Wine was served in abundance as well as beer and soft drinks. The décor was modern and the dinning room was well lit and spacious. The waiting staff were always on hand and very helpful.
The Bar - they have now put a stage in the bar so that you can see the evening's entertainment, instead of going into the theatre which has now been changed into additional seating for the bar.
The Spa - we had a massage (extra cost) on the third day and it was wonderful. The spa is a little dated as it hasn't been modernised but it is fine. They have a pool and Turkish bath but we didn't use either of them this year, but previously they were grand. To improve it would be nice to have a jacuzzi.
The Skiing - Brilliant brilliant brilliant. No complaints the terraine is vast and gives both intermediates and experienced skiers a challenging weeks skiing. The instructor we had (Veronica) was superb and remember that both the lessons and the ski pass are included in the cost of the holiday.
All in all it scores 9.5 out of 10 for me.
Would I go for a forth time yes probably.
