I travel the world and know a lot about hotel service and comfort. For such a small city, this hotel was absolutely great. Private beach (beach towels provides), nice pool and spa, excellent breakfast for 14 euros. The receptionist were so nice, they booked a Calvi to Scandola Reserve tour and the taxi back and forth. Also before better on... More

My family spent a week here over the summer and had a lovely time. It is in a great location, right by the sea but with all the restaurants in town a few minutes walk away. The rooms are fairly small but there is plenty of space to sit around the hotel depending on wether you want sun or shade.... More

Comfortable and quiet room. Hotel staff were friendly and showed us all categories of rooms. We opted for the larger room with garden/water view. Hotel has a pool and nice in-door and out-door sitting areas. Felt more like a 4-star hotel than a 3.

This might have been a great place to stay, but the building/renovation work that was taking place on two sides of the hotel definitely spoiled our stay. The noise started at 7am and didn't stop until 7pm! If the owners had a little more consideration for their guests they could have put us in one of the several empty rooms... More

First I would like to present my apology for the inconveniences due to the work construction. It is true that during the winter and the early season we undertook great renovations in many areas of our establishment. On another hand we allocated you a room in this block because it was the further from the work construction thus you were... More

It was December, off-season in Corsica, so the accommodations options were limited. The hotel was under renovation, but we took our chances. We were assigned a room with a balcony affording views of the sea and the lighthouse on San Pietro to the left and the towering snow-capped mountains to the right. Palm trees and snow-capped mountains! The location was... More

This is a lovely hotel in a great location that also provides excellent value. We could not have found a better location - close enough to town to walk to dinner and to the islands for a walk to spectacular views from the light house. In addition, the service was excellent - on a very busy weekend, the staff took... More

This is a fine hotel well placed to make an early ferry.We stayed here on our last night in Corsica and we had little expectation, choosing the hotel on the basis of its closeness to the port. It was a pleasant surprise therefore that the hotel had its own beach, a great pool, a jacuzzi, a friendly and helpful staff... More

Despite feeling unwell for much of our holiday, having contracted an unpleasant virus before setting off, we were able to enjoy our stay at the Santa Maria. The hotel is in an ideal location, with its own private beach; it is quiet, yet within easy reach of the town, which is charming. We visited Calvi on the 'bone shaker' train... More

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights for the Tour de France with the same group as Lisa B. I was in Room 119, which had a balcony overlooking the hotel's private beach (there are warnings about Urchins, the sea type). Road noise was not too bad or the music from the Via Mare, the great Bar/Restaurant across the... More
