We stayed here for our last night when visiting Corsica in August. I chose this hotel/ resort due to its location close to the airport. The room we got was small, but just all we needed, clean and comfortable, with nice bathroom and AC. We spent the day on nearby beach and enjoyed good dinner in the restaurant. The area... More

Nice place to relax but not an impressive restaurant, uninspiring food. Rooms were dirty and the bed was with hard springs. Internet did NOT work in our room but in some of the other rooms. unfriendly receptionist when we told about the dirty room and lack of internet. The bay was quiet and water clear which made our stay more... More

We just spent two nights in this hotel.As everyone says the location in awesome and the beach ample. Our room was nice, the bathroom larfe with two small windows.We experienced some problem with wifi. We did't eat there nor breakfast nor dinner.There is a lovely restaurant just outside the hotel (bevare not credit card accepted) and a supermarket for croissant!

The hotel is in a great location with magnificent views. The bay is lovely and surrounded by small mountains (?large hills). It is a very beautiful and remote location with only a small shop/cafe nearby and accessed via a twenty minute drive down a narrow, winding road. However, the hotel was very disappointing. The food was our main area of... More

Our visit here did not do the place justice, as we arrived late and left early. The hotel is made up of many buildings and for some reason we were put in one of the farthest away. That was a pain when unloading bags but later it turned out we could park very close by. Our room did have A/C... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in July. Can't say too much that hasn't already been said. The location is excellent although as it's so nice there were a lot of day trippers and the beach got quite busy. There is a holiday village in the hills to the side of the bay and there was a constant stream of people... More

You should not expect too much of the room, it is very clean but no decoration at all. No coffee pot or frig or hairdryer, but the bed is comfortable and the shower works nicely, The best thing about this place is its localization, directly on the beach of De Lava Bay. It is quite near from Ajaccio so if... More
