We have been for the first time in Corsica early July 2013, 2 adults and 3 children aged 2, 7 and 9. We chose to be in a hotel on the beach. Arriving at the hotel we were marveled by the site. Certainly 1 of the top beaches of the isle we were immediately charmed. We got two adjacent rooms,... More

the santa giulia beach, where the moby dick is located, is probably the most beautiful beach i've seen in europe. the hotel has some comfy longchaise at the beach, and u can spend great relaxing time there. the rooms were kind of boring, but nothing was missing or faulty. the restaurant was quite pricey, but the buffet was delicious.. although...

We stayed at the Bungalows, basically wooden huts, by the side of the Moby Dick hotel and referred to as The Moby Dick Residence. It might not sound great to stay in a wooden hut but it had the basics. A double bed, and a single one above it (so you can have 3 people stay unlike the review written... More

After reading several negative reports about the Moby Dick, we arrived at this hotel with some trepidation. Except for the issue of the smell from the lagoon we found everything to be very good. Even the smell, which has been reported on several previous reports, was not constant but would waft accross the bay every so often. We were booked... More

Aside from the exceptional and fantastic location of the hotel, situated on the best part of Santa Giulia beach, everything else feels like a rip-off. We paid EUR 514 per night for our stay, and yet, the hotel is worth an ugly two star hotel with low quality service and bad facilities. The hotel does not have any style, it's... More

We stayed 4 nights there with my boyfriend early October, as part of a tour of Corsica holiday we organised. First thing to say is that the reviews mix 2 hotels: the Moby Dick Hotel and the Moby Dick Pavillions, they're part of the same group and are next to each other but the comfort (and price) seem to differ....

We stayed the 3rd week of September 2008 at the Moby Dick Pavillons and it was overall a very pleasant experience. Location: purely on Santa Giulia beach, one of the most beautiful one there (with Palombaggia), very secured for children, with clear water. Like everywhere else in Corsica, you'll need a car to move, dinner in the city, day at... More

This is a superb hotel. We arrived to a very warm welcome and having been advised by previous tripadvisor contributors that the rooms were a bit tired, we entered our room with some trepidation. We were thrilled to find one of the most stylish bathrooms and very comfortable bedrooms that we had ever encountered in a 3* hotel. The food... More
