During our recent trip around Corsica we enjoyed two nights in this beautiful hotel. Our room was very nice including a spaceous bathroom and a terrace for our private use. For breakfast a huge selection of bread, jam, honey, cereals, jogurt, fruits and cheese was offered in the hotels restaurant. The hotel complex was embedded in a beautiful garden including... More

We stayed three nights and because of that experience returned a few days later for another three nights. Our Superior room facing the lovely rear gardens appeared to be recently renovated. It was spacious, clean and well appointed. The staff were, without exception, friendly, helpful and genuinely caring about our having a good experience in their family owned and managed... More

We booked this hotel beacuse of the good reviews but were rather disappointed. The room was wet and smelly and you rather didn't want to touch the floor. It seems they use the same water to clean the entire hotel, just with tons of smelly cleaner. The breakfast at Euro 12 is ok for an adult, but they charged the... More

We stayed 3 nights at Hotel San Giovanni. The hotel is set on beautiful, well-manicured grounds that are really nice to walk around. Everyone who worked here was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was in the main building. The room itself was clean and basic with a tiny shower; definitely could use a bit of updating and decorating. When... More

We stayed for 1 week in late August; this was our second visit. Hotel San Giovanni continues to deliver overall excellence at a reasonable (for Corsica) price. The hotel is in the "2-star" category, which means you should not expect hordes of servile butlers wearing suits and white gloves to bow down calling you "Sir" and "Madam", carry your luggage...

I cannot understand why this is only rated as a 2 star. The San Giovanni is set in wonderful tranquil parklands about a mile or so outside Porto Vecchio. The food is excellent and the service absolutely spot on. It is owner managed and it shows. We didn't have the best room in the house (No 1) but that was... More

We've just returned today from a week's holiday where we were based at the San Giovanni. They are proudly displaying their Trip Advisor award and rightly so. This is not "5 star luxury" or high-end cuisine, go elsewhere for that. What this privately-owned small country hotel offers is excellent food, fantastic service and an oasis of peace and calm. There... More
