We really enjoyed our stay. Good accommodation with balcony, quiet and friendly, helpful staff. Enjoyed using the pool and the spa. We hired our ski equipment at a shop near the lift enabling us to walk to the lift each day rather than getting the bus...an excellent way to warm the body up! We had a room with kitchen facilities...

This is the second year we've stayed at Le Gai Soleil. I think there may be some difference in the standard of rooms as the rooms we had this year were not as good as those last year. However the staff are very accommodating and there is a lovely family friendly atmosphere and all the staff are very helpful. (The...

We stayed here for half term week to ski. Access to slopes was easy. We stayed in the new lodge... It was worth every penny! Fantastic for self catering but we also ate in the restaurant one night which was great too. We had everything we needed at our fingertips. Transfer from Geneva was an hour. Perfect with small children....

I was really disappointed with this hotel. I had booked a "superior" room with a balcony for a short skiing break having checked that wifi was available because our business is run on-line! Allocated room 207! Top Tip!! Avoid this room like the plague! Yes, it does have a balcony but that's all I can really say about it! Noisy...

Our family of 5 stayed in this small family run hotel for a weeks skiing this year. Very good half board option. Close to the airport works well. Private transfer or too expensive. Even better shuttle bus for ski lifts stops outside the front door. Food really was very good. Love this village. Second time in Samoens. Typically French. Best...

We were walking the GR5, the long distance walk and arrived in the middle of a thunderstorm having made a reservation via the Tourist Information Office. We had a warm welcome at this well presented and situate hotel, within easy walking distance of the town centre. The family room was spacious and clean. The breakfast ( at 13 euros )...

We stayed here to go skiing in someon. The hotel is well located in the town, not too far from the lift which is about a 10-15 min walk. The hotel has great facilities for its price with a good pool, nice sauna and table tennis table. Food in the hotel was good although the breakfast a little sparse. If...

Used this hotel with a large group of friends whilst walking the GR5. I stayed in one of the 2 bedroom chalets at the rear of the hotel. The room was spacious and full of quality fittings.

We ate dinner here after arriving late in Samoens. We were very pleasantly surprised with the tastiness of the meal - not expecting anything special as the hotel looks very inviting and cosy but quite similar to other small hotels. We shared the terrine - it was delicious, as was the tartiflette and the dessert melted as you put it...
