“Clean basic hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

Over priced for a basic but sizeable double room. The room had a sea view, and was of a decent size but I did notice that the non sea view rooms were much smaller. Although spotlessly clean and modern, the furnishings were fairly basic.
The pool was a decent size with numerous loungers.
Breakfast was very basic, especially as it cost €12 euros.
The jacuzzi adjacent to the pool was charged !!
All in all a reasonable hotel for the one night transit during high season, but certainly not worth the money. ( € 175 per night single)

Room Tip: Pay extra for a sea view room

We made the booking 2 days before arrival (in July 2012) to Porto-Vecchio when most of the hotels were sold out, not much to choose from. I read the guys review> ok hotel. But very overpriced...
and would agree. To pay 170-190 eur per night for double room, additionally breakfast 15 eur per person is a bit much to a 3 star hotel which is also dated and not high quality! Could easily be 2 star. jacuzzi, hammam and sauna had to pay extra.
Location: very good, right by the sea, end of the road (so not much traffic noise).
Room type: There were standard (no balcony), superior with lake-mountain view and superior with sea view (both with balconies). Sea view meaning you are actually by the street, as between the sea and hotel was the street:) We were in superior with lake view, overlooking the pool as well. Enjoined the view.
Overall impression when entering the room is good, in closer look you see it could be so much better :).
Room: comfortable bed, mirror, big cupboard, counter to keep suitcase, relatively small TV, AC (could not regulate speed nor temperature, YOU can only switch it on or off).
Shower: simple towels, dryer, soap, shampoo, gel.
After cleaning the room it smelled like chlorine, when Asian girl cleaned it didn't and it was much better cleaned.
Maybe if to book advance you get lower price: 70 or 80 would be fair price.
Big plus was the pool and more quiet location.

For us it was mystery how In Corsica the hotel stars are given, it does not match overall European system. Some 2 star were more like 4 and so on...you cant trust the stars. The prices and stars don't match either.

Room Tip: Rooms with lake-mountain view is more quiet

Good hotel, clean, friendly staff not too far from Marina, would not recommend to people with walking difficulties as walk to old town very steep and no lift in hotel. The dog is lovely. We would go back again as Corsica is beautiful.

For a basic price of around 200euros a night I would expect more.
Small rooms, with decoration a bit dated. Pool was nice, but seemed to have peoples towels hanging to dry from everywhere.
Overall it was a clean but basic hotel, and one I would have been happy to pay about 80euros a night for.
Maybe it is just Porto Vecchio is expensive. In which case, I would recommend avoiding the town altogether, and going to one of the other very beautiful towns in Corsica.

Fantasic modern smallish (17 rooms) family run hotel with delightful and efficient staff and proprietors. Very friendly and helpful and did not rip us off when forced to stay extra 2 days due to the bloody French General strike which coincided with our return flight! Best breakfast we've ever had in France as it included a quality selection of hams, cheeses, frest fruit, croissants, pastries, fresh rolls, toast, marmale/jams, tea/coffee and juices. Superb location close to the bustling Marina area and restaurants/bars. Spacious, comfortable rooms with superb showers. Lovely clean pool and jacuzzi, admirably patrolled by the real hotel boss, Tidji the Alsation, a true star who we nearly kidnapped and took back home with us! Not usually wild about Alsations, but Tidji is the friendliest, funniest dog in the world with a penchant for German bikini tops left by the pool side! Recommend U Molu to eat, reserve a table up to 8pm or expect to wait, best food and best value and it's no secret! Also recommend having lunch at the Le Goeland Restaurant/Hotel, 10 mins walk along the front past the Marina, where for the price of a few orgasmic tapas and drinks, you can spend the day at their fantastic private beach and swim in shallow water. If you want to travel extensively, hire a car. There is no proper public transport system on the island. There are buses to Bonifacio and Ajaccio, but as most French are nuts, they only go in one direction one day and then return the next day!!! We took the bus to Bonifacio and then a taxi back in the evening (50 E). Ensure you take plenty of Euros and cards, don't even think about changing money, cos you won't find a single bank in Porto Vecchio and the nearest bank with any money is at the top of a mountain in Bonifacio! Since most of the shops are shut most of the time, this saved us a fortune! French speaking is useful as the majority do not speak English. Taxi from Airport is 50E, don't rely on their mythical bus service! Flights are cheap with Ryan Air, everything else costs a fortune! Have fun.

They gave us a price for the room, I reserved and they charged 30% on my account. Four days before my arrival they called me saying that the price was higher. I told them I didn´t agree and they cancelled my reservation without telling us. We found out cheking the bank account. They had given our money back.
Just don´t go. They are not professionals at all.

I stayed at this Hotel with my partner for 3 weeks in September 2009 and am somewhat confused by some of the reviews. The hotel is modern, clean and the staff/owners are very friendly. On arrival we were given a tour of the Hotel, offered advise on where to eat and the best beaches to visit. We had a chambre superieur with view out to sea. This room was a decent size with huge balcony.

No doubt certain guests will complain about there being no bath in the rooms but the walk in shower is powerful and spacious. The location of this hotel is ideally situated with the port a 2 minute walk away with numerous restaurants (recommend U Molu) and the centre of town 10-15 minutes (try Chez Anna), although this is uphill. The car ferry is 500 yards down the road but you won't even notice this as departures are not daily.

For those moaning about the cost of breakfast there is an easy remedy.......walk round the corner to the bakery or go to one of the numerous cafe's on the front and chill out by the port (both options are cheaper than eating in). This is a good hotel and the prices are comparable with others in the area. I would recommend a stay in this hotel but it may be well worth having a look at the recently opened Costa Salina next door.
