    The Hotel Tango is a fun and cosy place to stay, right in the middle of the highest ski resort in Europe. The original 1960s hotel was rebuilt in 2012, and has since become one of the most popular meeting spots in Val Thorens. It’s quirky and contemporary throughout, with plenty of comfortable places to relax.

    Each of the 61 rooms is decorated in warm blues and reds, with dark wooden furniture and wallpaper patterned with tartan or snowy trees. Most of them have a balcony too.

    The super cosy lounge area is a great place to unwind at the end of the day, in front of the roaring fire or watching a game on the big TV, preferably with a drink from the bar in hand. Tucked around the corner, the Alpine Kitchen restaurant dishes out a range of good quality food from around the world, in a calm and refined setting – the Tango Burger in particular is a legendary staple.

    Outside, there’s a terrace that really comes alive at après time. Sip cocktails while listening to live music, or let loose and dance in your ski boots. And a couple of times a week, they also host a lunchtime barbecue.

    A visit to the wellness area is another must – make the most of the sauna and hammam, and maybe even book in for a massage, to get you ready for another day on the slopes.

    And while the style is laid-back, the service is anything but – you can expect the same excellent standard that comes with all Langley hotels.

    Best of all, the Tango is ski-in, ski-out, so just a few steps from the ski room you'll be able to clip in and cruise straight to the lifts.

    Safety advice

    Please note that safety standards around balconies, railings and public walkways are different in France and may be lower or have ornamental features that you wouldn’t see in the UK or Ireland.

    For your own safety and that of everyone you’re travelling with, please make sure you take care not to lean on or over any railings. If you have children under 12 years, please make sure they’re supervised and not left alone at any time.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.
