Maybe we are biased towards the Tramonto because it was our honeymoon hotel, many years ago. But we just love it. It's basic, but look at the wonderful view from your room (choose a "vue mer" room).
There's no TV in the rooms. More time to sit on the balcony and look at the view (or later in the evening to watch the often engaging activities in the turning circle across from the hotel). The bathrooms have showers of the "NVQ level 2 in domestic plumbing will be useful" type. But look at the price you're paying for a room – about half that which other hotels in Calvi (which have nothing like the position of this one) charge.
Breakfast is basic but good value at only €6. And sitting on that terrace first thing looking at the bluest sea you'll ever clap eyes on is wonderful.
This is a family concern. Mother has passed the baton onto daughter, and now granddaughter is also involved. She is charming and speaks very good English. The service is good too – we asked for extra pillows and they were delivered in about 3 minutes.
If luxury is important to you, pass by. But if the simple pleasures from a time when holidays were what you made them count to you, then pick the Tramonto. And put the savings you make towards a slap up meal or two at places like Les Dunes (see my review).
