Residence Salina Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 16, 2012

We rented a one-bedroom apartment with a view of the pool, and could not be happier. The apartment and the terrace and very spacious and everything is built with high quality. After being away from home for ten days, we also appreciate the opportunity to be able to cook for ourselves and the kitchen is better stuffed than our own kitchen at home: you can find all types of pots and dishes, there is an oven, a dishwasher, a microwave and even a freezer. The apartment is spotless clean. Beautiful and big pool, and a well-maintained garden. The whole place looks more like an upscale apartment complex than a summer place where people come and go.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a pool view or you will be looking at the parking lot

This is a new place and it really is excellent. Location wise it is just five minute walk from the marina. It has a main reception and then 4 apartment blocks and a lovey pool with a bar at the pool you can swim up to. I'd recommend an apartment facing the town and not pool (which is more popular option) as you get the sun in the afternoon and evening. The apartments ate very modern and have an excellent huge balcony with a dining table. Ours had 2 huge bedrooms and also pull put couch in living room so very spacious and easily fits 6. The kitchen has everything you need. The minus was having to pay €5 to rent 4 towels and €65 to pay to have it cleaned but this is not a hotel. The reception were excellent and really helpful with local information like getting a taxi from Bonfacio to Porto Vecchio when we arrived on the ferry.the town is buzzing and the marina too. There ate a number of world class beaches within 20 minutes of the place including Palombaggia, Santa Guilia and Rondinara. All covey beaches with hut restaurants and child friendly water. The other thing that will bring us back to this place is the mountains are only 20-30minutes away with lots of activities like trekking, canyoning and swimming in the gorges. I don't know another place with sand and mountains as beautiful on Europe.

Brand new appartments in a vacation resort aimed for families. We rented a type F3 appartment which has 2 separate bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It has a lovely outside terras for eating, is well fitted and has airco. Personnel at the reception area is very helpful. However, there is some room for improvement. The kitchen is spacious, but misses some standard equipment such as a coffee machine, mixer, water boiler, toaster and etcetera which you may expect to be present for this type of appartment. With outside temperatures just above 30°C it took a couple of days for the airco to bring the bedroom temperature down to 21°C. Upon our arrival the hot water boiler and the dish washer both did not function and required a service intervention to correct the issues. The matrasses on the beds do not offer good sleeping comfort: they are too soft to provide adequate support and wobble too much so that you wake up from normal movements of your partner in the bed. The sofa bed is only fit for small children in view of the thin and soft matras hereon. The swimming pool is large, but is only 1.50 m deep. There is no separate pool for kids and it does not allow for children to bring toys or pool matrasses. Wireless internet is available, but is payable and does not come cheap. Additional fees apply for the use of bath towels and swimming pool towels.

The property is located in a quiet area, but still within walking distance from the harbour of Porto Vecchio. The Casino supermarket is conveniently located just across the street. The hotel is well located if you want to explore the south beaches and the Bonificia area.

Unless above issues would be addressed and some of the services such as towels and internet would be included in the rate I would not recommend selecting this hotel at the high season rate as I believe it currently does not offer the expected value for the money paid. Corsica has many lovely gites which will offer you a better value for money and make you feel less of a package tourist than at this property.

Four stars NEW apartments with kitchen inclusive dishwasher, microwave, electric oven etc. Apartments are very big with spacious terrace and giving absolutely comfort. Fabulous swiming pool with pool bar, beautiful garden and friendly staff. Location nothing especial, but very good position to old town (10min walk) and best corsicas beaches (need a car, but only a few minutes driving). I´m very demanding and I guarantee that Salina Bay is superb. Other side, one problem I find: extra charched WiFi with very slow speed :-( Otherwise everything is :-)))

We were probably one of the first people to stay at the complex, so the staff were a little rusty and not all the appliances etc were in the rooms as yet (i.e. no microwave until we were leaving). However, we have no complaints as the 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious with 2 bathrooms and a super size balcony with furniture. Location great, with supermarket opposite the entrance and a 5 min walk to the marina.

Brand new location, so we had the pleasure to use new appartments.
We just missed the lack of towels and small sheets, but this seems normal in Corsica.
We had a late arrival, and our key was in an envelopp stuk to the window of the residence.
Everything was ok, just findind the location was a bit difficult, it is right in front of the supermarket Casino.
What we didn't not like was the that we had the view to the parking lot, and the people could see right in the room. For the rest everything was ok.
