“Beautiful setting”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic holiday destination!
Good points : Beautiful setting, scenery and hotel. Really great staff. Superb ski service. Excellent quality and variety of food.
Bad points : Rooms very noisy. No place for adults to eat. Evening entertainment very poor. General areas taken over by kids.
My suggestion to management - provide an area for adults to eat. Catering for children is great, but Club Med seems to forget the adults.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

Been to Valmorel during Jan. 2013. In general had a great time (but I always have a great time when skiing)

The hotel is beautiful! loved the design. Rooms are great (quite comfortable for a club room). The food was really good, almost never had to wait in line, great variety, good quality and the chefs are more than willing to make you smt. special (had a fussy eater in our group).

The ski is great but esp. for beginners to medium skiers. A very poor variety of challenging slopes. The ski locker at the club is great (opened by your room key) however, unlike other clubs, this time the sticks where you hang the shoes on do not warm the ski boots which means you put your foot into a semi-wet ski boot in the afternoon.

This is not my first visit to a family-club but this time around the club is esp. suited for kids which is kinda sucks for the adults without kids. My main complaint in terms of entertainment is that most of the nights there's some kind of kids-activity (kids show) at 8 PM (right after dinner) and the club's show starts at 9.15 PM in other clubs the kids show is usually earlier which means you don't have to be bored/suffer the noise after dinner. most of the times we preferred going back to our rooms. Moreover it seems the party after the show is aimed for the club staff instead of the guests. To conclude- evenings are really not the highlight and that's from someone who usually enjoys the club med evening and dancing is a big part of the ski vacation for me.

David the Chef-de-Village was great, listening to the guests and trying to make them happy.

In conclusion- In spite of the luxury we would probably not go back there any time soon but go to another club with bigger slopes and more adults entertainment in the evenings

Room Tip: If you're a hard-core skier and without any children in the group- choose another club

This is our second year with Club Med Valmorel. The service is again seamless, good food and we are happy that we have good snow. If you like a nice and easy resort with children, it is definitely the place. If you like places like Courchevel where it matters to see and to be seen then I would recommend another resort or location.

Cannot believe that my holiday is over! I have had a fabulous stay at this Clubmed. On arrival we were welcomed and all our rooms were ready. Our deluxe room had all the bells and whistles, bed was sooooo comfortable and we had a lovely view of the slopes. The dining rooms are beautiful and the meals fit for a King! Thank you to the chef David!
Our 5 days if skiing were excellent, able to ski in and put from the club. Our ski instructor Chantal was just what we ordered, patience and with a great sense of humour - nothing was too much trouble! The choice of slopes is never ending - something for all level skiers!!

Very nice resort, located right in the middle of the skiing area (ski-in and out), with a special attention to families (and kids). Hotel is quite new and rooms are very functional and well planned. Food is great for an all-included hotel. When it comes to skiing: nice slopes, for all levels and tastes and no ski-lift lines (at least in January) . Ski classes are intense and helps you to explore the whole mountain. Depending on your level they'll take you to a different sector/track every single class.

From the moment we were greeted by the customary Club Med welcome to the daily activities and food, this was the best week for my family (kids 9&7). We were treated so well at this club, the skiing was amazing every day, the food fantastic French cuisine, the desserts to die for. A very special mention to Vania, Miguel, Thomas and James who were always so genuinely helpful and accommodating. Our kids were very well looked after and had a blast. Thanks David and your fabulous team.

Just returned from 7 days at clubmed, absolutely the best ski in ski out I have ever experienced. You literally only carry skis 10 meters from slope to locker and then to hot choc or coffee.
Up 1 flight to bar and food.
Kids club is perfect and both 13 and 11 year olds loved it.
Rooms are great with interconnecting rooms and suites, all have tv in all languages and also free on demand movies.
Resort is new and very well appointed!
Lifts and slopes cater for everyone.
Could very easy do a second week as we have only covered half the runs!
A must for ski families!!
Our GO team led by David were excellent and could not have been more hospitable
