We were at Club Med Val Morel within the last week, three families with five children.
I understand why most French speakers give it high marks here, but I do not understand how those who do not speak French manage to get there when most of the staff do not understand a word of English or do not speak or do not want. Some of them, especially the reception really not nice and not help and pouts every request.
Number of activities in relation to other clubs is low. If children do not join the mini club just nothing to do there. The place is very suitable for skiing because of its location but all the activity around the summer is not suitable for children except on nature hikes and park ropes. If you want to do something beyond it like a trip mounted on jeeps etc you have to pay a lot. Therefore often have to travel to cities like Chamonix or Annecy. Rides in the 300 Euros!! With a taxi driver claimed Club Med familiar places and explain on the way. He does not explain, is short on time, he did not understand English and there is no clue where to go if not for the GPS.
Average food at club level and below. So it must feed 800 people and the food is very industrial and not very fresh. The breakfast/dinner room is not very clean. Maybe just the beginning before people enter.
The hotel itself is beautiful, modern decor but the rooms are still relatively small. My water flow was weak but maybe it's just me. buy the way, the pool is FROZEN !!
Registration activities like bike or hike is one day before the trip and for an hour and a half making huge queues have dense. Hotel general masses and very very noisy.
One of the greatest scandals - They asking 20 euros to get a code to activate wifi and it did not work!! About five minutes he logged off and it is connected to a very poor absorption. When it comes to reception to complain that they admit that this is so but still charge money! I wont come there again.
