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

The hotel exceeded our expectations, which were not high for a 2/3 star hotel. We had a superior "villa", which had its own terrace, with table and chairs, overlooking the garden. We must have been lucky from reading some of the other reviews as our room and bathroom were newly renovated and with internet connection. The best thing about the... More

We have just returned from Hotel SG staying 12. to 19th May 2013. I was concerned about booking a 2 star rated hotel but need not have worried. Whilst the bedroom/bathroom is basic and did smell a tiny but damp (they have air con units now) this was a minor issue as we slept well and spent our quality time... More

We rented a superior room. The smell of humidity was unbearable. The hotel had been flooded in March. Although the hotel management dried the room, it (22) was in no state to be rented out already. After informing the owner, they changed us to another room (upstairs) which was fine. We would have appreciated a real compensation for the inconvenience... More
