Room had a great view of the bay (we were on the second floor) and was fairly spacious
Room was kept spotlessly clean and tidy, separate toilet from the main bathroom with a good bathtub and also a bidet.
Continental breakfast was included in the price and served until 10.30am which was useful when having a lie-in. Liked our own private balcony and you can get your breakfast delivered to your room for no extra charge which was a nice touch.
We appreciated the free garage parking too, it is a town where off road parking (or indeed any parking spaces) is in short supply and would expect to pay to park, and as it is not such a busy time of year we were able to get a space each night of our week stay. This was a key factor that made us choose this particular hotel in Porto-Vecchio
Laurent and the rest of the team at the Tilbury were very authentically hospitable and warmly sincere and helped us with a restaurant reservation and recommendations on places to go in the area and local cuisine.
It occurred to us that it would be have been nice to have a mini fridge and a shower that was more robust/powerful. Also a double bed rather than 2 twin beds would have been better!
We booked and paid for our hotel through a third party booking agency so we thought the price we paid for what we received was reasonable for the location, given that it was the end of the season also.
There was some work taking place at the hotel but it did not bother us, only could hear it when not in the room, like in the communal hotel areas or outside on the balcony.
Not being French, I got a bit confused by the lighting in the hotel corridors (it was very dark there as no natural light in those areas) as the light switches are activated by pushing a timer switch button which looked like UK door bells! It might be better to have motion sensors to activate the light in those shared but infrequently used areas like in the parking garage?
Pool was a bit 'green' at the start of the week but got cleaned a few days later on. The sea was warmer than the pool so we did not use it in the end. Nice pool terrace with sofas and atmospheric lighting.
There is a jacuzzi spa/sauna/hammam but it seemed quite expensive (50euros for 2 people but unsure of duration of session). I would expect to pay 15-20Euros an hour for 2 people for such a facility as it did not include any treatments.
