From outside quite a new building (surprisingly the 3 lights of the 3 stars were removed - I asked myself, whether it means a downgrade :) ) with parking space and quite a big pool with a nice terrace inside.
On one side you have the sea/port view - it is very beautiful and don't have any fears, that it could be loud, because of the street in front of the hotel - it doesn't disturb at all.
On the other side you have a view on the sole area, pool and a bit of the city.
The hotel is situated very well and is easy to find, it is not far away from the port, where are several bars, restaurants, cafes and a promenade.
To the city of Porto Vecchio it is a nice walk (up - after the big parking take the right, it is much less slope) of max 15 min.
The room was quite big and new. The climate control worked well. The Lan-internet didn't work well at all.
For the price of 180 EUR in the lower season the breakfast was not included (it would be 14 EUR p. p. on top).
You can have a nice french breakfast at the port though (e.g. glacier du port - 9 eur incl fresh juice, baguette, pain au chocolat etc)
It is very nice to start the day like that.,
As we arrived (quite early), we've been told, that there is no possibility to get into the room before 3pm. I would expect, that maybe one would give priority to the room, if guests come early, but on the other hand the hotel is quite big, so it might be difficult to manage it in this way.
The staff is partially nice. The first day we had a non-smiling receptionist. The next 2 days very nice guys. One lady was for me not really service-oriented and also not very nice as she offered to one older couple, who was a bit worried about the street in front of the hotel, to leave the hotel instead of trying to explain and calm them down and find a solution. The older lady was crying after that.
I wouldnt recommend this hotel for vacation/beach holiday to my friends because of high price, but if you have/want to stay at porto vecchio/port it is a decent, clean hotel with quite big rooms, just quite expensive.
