We have just got back from Tignes, Val-Claret.
The resort is one of the best I've been to in all aspects, but mainly skiing. Very well connected slopes so it's easy to travel around the whole Espace Killy.
The resort is higher than other Tignes villages or Val-d'Isere therefore even thought in the bottom it was +6 one day we still could ski the whole day. Great place for beginners as there are a lot of green areas.
There still were old and slow chair lifts but not the majority. Val Claret itself is very small, but you will find everything that is essential there, including a supermarket which works on Sunday and a very nice Boulangerie.
The place was mainly packed with young people rather than families. There are many bars, restaurants and other nightlife, so it's a great place to go with friends. Not many restaurants on the slopes thought.
As to the residence, the apartments are small but comfy and cozy, light, warm and clean. We had 2 bed apartment A2 very conveniently located to the SPA, with small open plan kitchenette which was equipped though with branded appliances. Small but Flat screen TV. Beds are comfy, and you can rent bathrobes and slippers for SPA.
When we arrived, we realized that the water in one of the showers didn't drain, so we reported the problem to the reception and it was fixed the same day.
As to the SPA, it was packed all the time. IT is very cozy, but as to whirlpool pools, they aren't working properly, although still enough for relaxation.
Overall, the whole resort and hotel combination gave us a very good holiday, so I definitely recommend both.
For ski rentals, go to Intersport Jhana - outstanding service. Restaurants - they are all pretty much the same, the best place for us was a little place by the Tufs lift with teddy bears inside, can't remember the name thought... (not the Grizzly bar thought, next to the right of it).
