Hotel L'Onda
Ranked #15 of 30 Hotels in Calvi
Reviewed 25 September 2012

The Hotel L'Onda is in a great position where you get the best of both worlds being a stone's throw from the beach and just 10 minutes walk to the harbour and the various restaurants and shops. This is a very friendly family run hotel, where cleanliness is excellent. rooms are very good with most facilities you could need e.g. room safe, mini bar and air conditioning and a balcony where even some of the side views had views of the sea and some the citadel too.

Whilst there is not restaurant as such, there are plenty of options 10 minutes walk away and a number of options nearer than that such as the Sea Beach and Lido...there are one of two small convenience stores and a pharmacy near by as well as a doctor, and 5 minutes away you have a good size supermarket.

My only gripe would be that the breakfast did not live up to the standards the rest of the hotel set, with just a small offering brought to you on a tray which consisted of little more than crossaint/pain au chocolat jams and butter plus coffee/ tea, a yoghurt surfaced after one guest requested one.

I feel a buffet breakfast of pain au chocolat/crossaint some bread rolls, butter/jams, boiled eggs cold meat and cheeses plus perhaps some cereal,yoghurt and fruit which is common in most hotels would not have cost a whole lot more and would have improved the experience a great deal.

Room Tip: Superior front rooms overlooking the sea and the citadel some with large balconies such as room 208...

This hotel I can only recommend. Rooms were always clean. Also the furniture was new and nice. in each room has air conditioning, minibar and balcony. The hotel is situated a short walk from a beach overlooking the harbor. It is 5 minutes from the center of Calvi. Hotel has no restaurant, but there is a choice of good restaurant in the neighborhood.

Basic hotel on edge of Calvi. Rooms are fine, nothing special. Convenient to airport and 5 minutes from Calvi central.

This was a very nice, basic hotel on the beach in Calvi. If your primary goal in Calvi is to spend your days at the beach, this hotel is a great choice. The walk to the marina and citadelle is reasonable, although more of a distance than we expected. Perhaps 15 minutes to the marina and 20 to the citadel. This was fine for us (we mostly walked in for dinner), although I did wonder what it would be like to stay closer to the marina/citadel. La Caravelle seems to have a slightly better location on the beach, but not by much. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable, and the staff was quite nice. I would recommend it for beach-goers.

Hotel L'Onda was a great little hotel just a short two minute walk along a nice path to the Mediterranean Sea and a beautiful beach. Our room faced the street, but still had a great view of the sea, the beach and the citadel from our huge balcony. The room was very large, with a separate entrance hallway and desk area and a decent bathroom with a tub and a shower hose. The bed was very comfortable. The air conditioning worked great, but don't think that your air has broken down if you return to your room midday to find it not working: they turn off all of the air conditioning while the maids are cleaning the rooms because they are airing out the rooms and opening the balcony doors.
We chose to not eat breakfast at the hotel because we preferred to go down to the liitle restaurant on the beach and have the cappuccino and pastry that they sold. The little beach club right in front of the hotel was wonderful. They provided comfy chaise lounges and umbrellas for 15 euro for the day (for two chairs and one umbrella) and had great food at the restaurant. The beach was wonderful and provided some snorkeling by the rocks. The views on the beach were great: to the left you have the citadel and old town and ot the right are the mountains.
The people that run the hotel were really helpful and friendly. Everything was spotless and the location nice because even though it was about a ten minute walk to the old town area, there was plenty to see along the way. The hotel doesn't provide a computer, but there was an internet service right across the street.
We really enjoyed our beach stay at Holtel L'Onda and Calvi. It was a great way to spend 4 days before we took the ferry to Nice to begin our journey home. We highly recommend Hotel L'Onda.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the street are huge with large balconies.

We had a double room with extra bed for our son, two balconies and bathroom, TV (one English channel and one German sales channel, rest French), air conditioning (not very adjustable). One balcony with table and chairs. Street view is noisy if double glazing is left open. All clean and comfortably sized room. Free wifi in hotel lounge. About 10 - 15 minute walk to the centre of Calvi, Staff nice and some speak English.
Calvi is expensive, even foods in the supermarkets go up when the tourists come.

We've stayed at the Onda 5 times now. It's nothing fancy, but everything works. The rooms are comfortable, well looked after and have aircon. Breakfast is the usual French fare but it's good quality. The best thing about the Onda is its location: a few minutes walk into the town centre but far enough out so that you don't get caught up in traffic every time you want to come in or go out. And the beach is literally on the doorstep. In fact you could manage without a car at the Onda, everything is so conveniently placed.
