We chose the hotel chiefly for its location, about one km from the airport. It is a large, modern establishment, in attractive grounds, with a good swimming pool, and also a table tennis facility for guests. We were not surprised that it was quite pricey – even to Corsica standards. The reception and dining room staff, although not exactly off-hand, were not particularly friendly or welcoming.
Our bedroom was very bright and nicely furnished, with a sea-view balcony. This, however, had no security, and it was possible to wander along from room to room with no hindrance. Indeed, one guest reported the presence of someone else’s child on their balcony. We kept our windows locked.
The bathroom was superb, with a beautiful stone floor and a huge shower, but absolutely nowhere to put the soap or shampoo except the floor. The bathroom and loo had only a wooden lattice slider, which could be embarrassing if you have some slight pretentions to modesty.
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, and so eating in is inescapable. At dinner we waited nearly an hour for our meal, despite several reminders to the staff. Breakfast (10 euro extra) was also very crowded and long-winded. The breakfast buffet was poor, with no baguettes (just third-rate rolls) or fresh preserves, and with machine coffee and hot chocolate that were quite undrinkable.
The final blow came when we left. Although the airport is literally only three minutes’ drive away the local taxis charge 20 euros for the trip. This pricing is presumably not the hotel's fault, but one would have thought they could provide a minibus or come to a different arrangement with the taxi drivers.
