The place is pretty far from Ajaccio itself and already would be a problem for people not intending to rent a car. It would take time to go to the city itself and or travel around as it is not so accessible around there. The actual rooms were spacious and had great views, I traveled in a big group so we had a nice big room although my friends with a smaller room did not enjoy the space like ours. Could fit up to 8!
The balcony was pretty amazing with the views although overall that was all the hotel could offer. Overall, for the price, we didn't expect such a low level of effort for the guests. Even toilet paper and towels were charged and this is honestly one of the dumbest things a hotel could do.
WIFI was HORRIBLE! Most likely the worst WIFI I've ever experienced and could not do a single thing there. The stupid part was that while we left, they "Claimed" that the rooms were in horrible condition, with it left like a "trash bin", and honestly, talking to your guests in that manner is stupid. The over exaggeration about the state of the room was a joke with the staff "claiming" that it would take 3-4 hours to clean. Telling Hospitality/hotel/F&B restaurant educated guests that it would take 3-4 hours, would mean we most likely did leave trash over every inch of the floor. On the contrary, we left a few bags of chips and maybe untidy beds which they should be changing the bedsheets for anyways so it is a big surprise unless they don't practice typical Hotel procedures.
At the end of the day, a great trip was destroyed by the staff's laziness to put some effort in doing their jobs. A joke of a establishment. Naturally not every guest would be getting this treatment, but it is quite obvious that the staff are incompetent.
