“Lovely hotel but terrible service”
Reviewed 17 June 2012 via mobile

Great rooms (worth upgrading) and handy for restaurants and beach but service is bad and you're not made to feel welcome.

Reviewed 12 October 2009

As one of the other reviewers points out, this hotel is in Ile Rousse rather than Calvi as the Trip Advisor classification might suggest. However, Ile Rousse is a charming place so that is no bad thing. The hotel is well situated for the beach and for the centre of Ile Rousse with its many restaurants and cafes.
Our room was on the top floor with distant views over the harbour. The room and ensuite shower/wc was small but adequate. The hotel is slightly dated, with the furniture and bathroom fittings in need of renewal.
The pool area is shaded for much of the day, which would be welcome in mid-summer but was less good in the cooler weather of September.
There is a lift, but it is up a small flight of stairs so I could not see how a person in a wheelchair could use the hotel.
Breakfast was served until 10:15 and we usually arrived about 9:15. There were a number of tour groups in the hotel and they all breakfasted early. We got the impression that the staff considered breakfast to be over by the time we arrived and were keen for us to finish and leave. Most days we had to ask for things from the staff who were busy clearing up and moving tables. For example one day there were no plates, another day no croissants. The coffee was dispensed from a large urn. On one occasion no coffee came out of the tap so we asked for some fresh coffee. The waitress just walked over to the urn and tilted it so that the last dregs came out into our cups. It was almost cold and not very nice.
Apart from the breakfast team the staff were friendly, especially the lady who cleaned our room.
