This hotel is perfectly located, next to the beach. It's quiet but it must be overcrowded during the Summer holidays. We thought the room was comfortable and the breakfast OK. It's at walking distance from Calvi's city center and the owners were very helpful to advise us for must-see stores and restaurants there. The staff is very friendly and professionnal.... More

Nice hotel! We had room facing the garden on ground floor, rooms are not big but quite good. Nice, new bathrooms. We only got options of half board when booking, but if you can - book only with breakfast. The 4 course dinner that are included are not bad, just boring and you get much better dinner options in town.... More

I was very nervous when I booked this hotel, as it was the only one with availability, I was very pleasantly surprised, the gardens are lovely, we had a garden room with a very dainty view. The hotel is the closest to the beach, maybe 30m max! A very short walk to the harbour and town for restaurant options. We... More

Very good location for Calvi beach and short walk into Calvi town. Rooms clean, adequate but not much space, good ensuite shower room. Gardens outside are well kept, not allowed to lie on the grass!! Two chairs provided to sit on outside. We booked on half board basis - set menu which unfortunately was 4 courses all cheese based! The... More

Just a few steps away from the train stop (ask to get off at Lido), and the beach. The beautiful old town is about 15 minutes walk, although there are cafes, restaurants, an ATM and a large supermarket nearby. The supermarket does hot food, which is ideal for a beach picnic. As seems to be the norm in Corsica, they... More

On a visit to Europe from our home in Australia, this was a perfect place to spend a week in early September and to meet up with an old friend from France. We had rooms opening on to the beautiful, well-maintained garden. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We chose half board: breakfasts were generous buffet-style and could be eaten... More

From the main road, La Caravelle doesn't look like anything special - positioned next to the railway line at the back of a dusty car park - but step into the pristine gardens and you enter another world. I arrived quite late but was greeted by a friendly receptionist who showed me to my small, but spotlessly clean room on... More

Nice hotel with lovely garden just next to the beach and 5-10min walk to the harbour with all restaurants and bars. Very clean rooms and helpful staff. Hotel restaurant is good as well. We stayed 7 days and didn't have any issues at all or things to complain about. Guests were in general not the youngest (40+) due to the... More

We stayed here for seven nights - 4 half board and 3 breakfast only - and were very impressed. Warm welcome at reception, and when we discovered that a lock on our suitcase had become jammed, a handyman was with us in no time to snip the offending lock. Lovely bathroom, very clean, and our room on the first floor... More
