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

We stayed here for 6 nights while doing a Tour de France tour. The location is absolutely beautifull and ideal for walking into town. The staff have been great, and any request was not a problem. The breakfast catered for everyone including a typical French breakfast that we love- and the view!! The rooms are spacious, very clean and modern.... More

We spent a relaxing seven days here, our room balcony overlooking the sea. It was great waking up to the sound of the waves on the beach every morning - although I expect that round the other side of the hotel there might be some noise from the (not too busy) road that leads to the ferry. Asking for room... More
