“Le luxe en toute simplicite et authenticite. Du pur bonheur!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2012

I recommend it for all Corsica lovers that want to pamper themselves. Everything is gorgeous. We absolutely fell in love with the location. Despite the fact that we went at the end of the season (October), we could enjoy a warm weather (outside pool, long hikes, dinner on a terrace). The staff is really nice (of course we are in a 5 star hotel!!!) . You feel remote but at the same time, everything is close at walking distance (village, citadelle, port, beach). The SPA is amazing with a very professionnal staff and great products (same products provided in the guests rooms)

I made a private booking and informed the hotel at he time that we were spending the last two nights of our honeymoon there. They confirmed the booking and added, " We are looking forward to this great event!" .


We enjoyed the hotel during our stay, made to feel welcome by the staff who were all very helpful and attentive. We had a fantastic suite with views over towards the citadel. Yes - this hotel is very expensive and I tried to play it cool as it was a final treat on a special holiday ( 20 euros for a cocktail !! ) .

The hotel decided not to acknowledge our reason for staying which was a pity, but no big deal. I wasn't angling for free champagne - just a nice touch to say welcome - enjoy your stay ( as other hotels had done earlier in the week ) . I made this comment to the manager at the reception, in the nicest possible way as we waited for out taxi. "Just a card or flowers would have been a nice touch." It was more advice than a complaint. He rather snottily replied,"We don't accept honeymoons." mmmmm I think he meant - we don't acknowlege honeymoons. Either way his delivery and choice of words wasn't appropriate.

I clearly spoke to the wrong man at a bad moment - having read other reviews on TA, it's clear that La Villa certainly have looked after couples celebrating honeymoons and looked after them well. Our one o'clock taxi appeared to be late. At 1.15 I asked the manager to call the taxi company to make sure it was on its way. At 1.25 I made it clear that if the taxi didn't appear by 1.30 we could miss our ( once a week ) flight. At 1.35 I had to put my foot down and ask him to get one of the hotel drivers to take us to the airport as soon as possible. In short - he wasn't looking after us. As we drove to the airport he called the taxi driver to make sure we paid 25 euro fee ? ! I'm sure a taxi was ordered but he handled it very badly. It left a bad taste in my mouth after a pleasant stay.

I would summarise - it's a nice hotel but it's not worth it.

We stayed 3 nights in September. Beautiful modern rooms. The restaurant has excellent food and service in a charming setting. Definitely one of the nicest hotels we found in Corsica. The suites are huge and have everything to make your stay comfortable. Good breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: Suites are huge

Wonderful view. Extraordinary food with extraordinary service. Great location, nice being slightly out of town, but the hotel offers car service. Very efficient. Took a lovely hike up the hill to a pilgrimage site. Beautiful pools and landscaping.

Excellent rooms, facilities and people. Beautiful pools with views of the sea, great spa services, enchanted private atmosphere. Restaurants ok, but better to get out. They will drive you to and from places in the city. Beautiful clean and modern rooms with good amenities. Helpful multilingual staff. Expensive, but probably worth it. A lot of kids during high season.

Room Tip: All sea view rooms, best are rooms 47,48,49 i think

Had a four night stay at the La Villa in Calvi. Beautiful setting and view of the Citadel. We had two Jr. Suites which were modern and spacious. The pool server and bar staff were attentive and knowledgeable! We really liked the room layout and the large tub and shower. There was a separate toilet / bidet. The rooms were clean and tidy! We had a problem with the air conditioner leaking water from the ceiling in the entry way, this caused mold and a slippery floor. The irritant was so bad it caused my eyes to water, as long as we kept the door to the entry closed the room was satisfactory. I mentioned the problem verbally and by letter twice to the front desk, their response was "o.k.!" Was not prepared for the 20 Euro per cocktail or 7 Euro for a Coke prices. We ended up purchasing a coffee maker in town so we could have it available in our room without the high cost.

This is a splendid set of buildings in an excellent location, with fine views across the bay, and excellent staff and service. However, prices are exorbitant and the hotel management is indifferent to problems with infrastructure. Our shower flooded the floor every time it was used, the mini bar did not work and the air conditioning in both the bedrooms and public places was inadequate. The response of management was the offer of an "upgrade" to a larger room with the same problems but further up the hill (declined) and a daily request for ice. Not at all the sort of standard expected from a 5 star hotel in the Relais and Chateau group.
