Before visiting, I had read the other reviews here and knew about past/recent problems. This helped me have the proper frame of mind. Speaking of frames, consider this Radisson Blu to be a masterpiece that was hung in a frame and put on exhibit before the artist had quite finished a few corners of the painting. The location (and sunsets!) are great. The rooms are the best we had on Corsica. The public areas and pool are lovely. Contrary to other guests' earlier reviews, we found the reception staff to be conversant-to-fluent in English, and the housekeeping was fine. Now some of the problems: Rooms are not ready at check-in time. This happened to us, and we saw it happening to guests arriving the next day. At check-in we were not provided the code needed to open the gate to return to the property from the beach. We had to go back and ask. There is no signage to tell you how to enter the parking lot, which has no access from the main road. We had to drive around to figure it out. The restaurant and room service menus are extremely limited, and priced too high. I recall 18 Euro for a cheese plate. No real lighter fare. The food must be fabulous but we were not willing to pay over 20 Euro for simple entrees. Instead, like many guests, we walked next door to where there are 4 or 5 restaurants (including Riv Sud!!!) and a small supermarket with excellent baugettes in the morning. I loved that they had on-site washer/dryer. Ten Euro was a bit much but the convenience to a traveler is great. So my 4 circle rating of this hotel is mostly 5 circle qualities with a small number of 1 and 2 circle problems. I would not hestitate to stay there again...and longer...but one just needs to know and accept these frailties.
