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.
