“If you're in Val Thorens simply to ski - great place!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

If your goal with your trip to Val Thorens is to ski as much as possible, and to get the most of your money, Temples du Soleil is an excellent choice. If you're planning on spending most of you're time at the hotel, and expect high comfort, look for an other. This hotel is located in the middle of the hill, and you can literally put your skis on right outside the door. The rooms include a small kitchen, and there's a grocery store on the ground floor of the Hotel, which makes it easy to put together a simple meal. It's definitely not a high quality hotel, but if you don't have too high expectations, this is an ok, basic hotel to stay at. I would recommend it to young people who are in Val Thorens primarly to ski and have fun, and don't want to spend a lot of money on a hotel room.

The Residence of Les Temples du Soleil is an average place to stay. It all depends on what you want out of your stay, and how high expectations you have. The location is perfect, and it was great having the opportunity to ski in and out of the runs. If you want to ski as much as possible, and have a cheap, simple place to stay, I recommend this place. If you expect a quiet place with higher standard and luxury, I would look around for other options.

I didn't expect much after having read the reviews, but it was an ok place to stay. I went skiing all day, made a simple dinner at the apartment, and went out to a bar later. The only time I spent in the apartment was sleeping. Are you traveling on a budget, and need a cheap place to chill while you are enjoying the great skiing of the Alps, it's fine to stay here :)

If you're after affordable self catering accommodation and literally just a place to sleep an maybe cook dinner every odd night, then Temples du Soleil is the place for you.
We were 2 couples sharing the one bedroom apartment, which meant that one fo the couple had to sleep on the two sleeper couches in the tiny lounge. So not ideal for a romantic ski holiday away.
But if you're a couple of friends sharing, it's ideal. The kitchen is fully fitted with a hob, microwave, fridge, folter coffee machine and all the basic crockery and cutlery.
The apartment also has a little balcony overlooking the piste. Ideal for leaving beers outside - that's if you like them icy cold!
The best part of the apartment are that they're situated right on the the main piste (green slope) and skiing from one's doorstep is pretty convenient.
Val T is Europe's highest ski-resort and boasts with many little pubs, bars, clubs and restaurants and for those wanting to shop, quite a few little curio-shops,etc.
PS. Ignore all the negative reviews - most people only leave reviews when they been disappointed for what ever reason and therefore the reviews seem overly negative. Just book it!

I have holidayed with Crystal ski several times and have stayed in some very basic accomodation. However, I have never felt physically sick on entering the room before. The reception area is very deceiving as it looks clean and quite normal. Then they give you directions to the lifts. As soon as I left reception, I had a feeling I should have booked somewhere else. There was a dirty, unclean smell which got gradually worse the further up the corridor I walked and once I had stepped out of the lifts and onto our floor, I almost got back on the bus. It was about 4 o clock in the afternoon when we arrived and were greeted with a corridor full of rubbish, beer bottles, condoms and dirty bed linen as we approached our room. On opening our apartment door, the four of us were greeted with a stench of vomit and had to open the balcony door immediately. We found that the smell was coming from the dishwasher. I put it on boil about 4 times before it smelled clean. The room had not been cleaned as we found cigarette ends and sweet wrappers under the table. I started cleaning the table, kitchen and all the areas we would touch like door handles and headboards. The apartment was for 4 but we only had 3 quilts, no mugs, 2 spoons and 3 knives. We stopped complaining after two days as the reception staff were trained to smile and do nothing.
what I can't understand is why Crystal are willing to promote this place. I have definately changed my opinion of Crystal.

Room Tip: Dont stay here.

After reading these comments we were not expecting much on our arrival but for a budget hotel we were pleasantly sup prised, we booked with crystal ski and the rep pointed out that they get the newly renovated rooms on the piste side which are away from the teenage party animal side. Room was aways warm was newly renovated and always had hot water with great power shower.our room opened up a ground level directly onto the piste so was great access. Room 209 on pichu side of hotel! . We cannot knock the room , it's a great location and for a budget hotel great value for money. If your used to luxury or a catered chalet then this hotel isn't for you . But if you want great location at a great price give it a try, maybe some earplugs would be a good purchase if you want !
