Marina di Cavu
Ranked #18 of 20 Hotels in Bonifacio
Reviewed March 17, 2007

The place is beautiful and feels very remote, we went in the off season, the restaurant offered no choice, just a set menu and it was very disappointing and well overpriced. Beautiful setting a good wine list. I booked a massage in my room and the cost was $35 more than the advertised price, I discovered after the massage. No facilites available, we were unaware that even the pools were empty, overpriced and management was unhelpful, even a little rude

Incredible location ten minutes from the most wonderful city in Corsica - Bonifacio. Hidden in windswept maquis, completely private and isolated. Extremely romantic, minutes walk through the maquis and dunes to an isolated Mediterranean beach. Not a sound of civilization around - just the roar of the sea, crickets and multitude of stars as company. Maybe an occasional Corsican hunting boar. BUT, we stayed in one of the villas and it was absolutely overpriced for its quality. The villas are old, paint is peeling, walls are battered, etc. There are no mosquito nets and even with air conditioning, this is a must. Bring your own. Our terrace sliding door did not lock and the staff did absolutely nothing to try to fix it. Besides risking a robbery (however rare in Corsica), we also worried about our two toddlers opening the door in the night and wandering off. Staff is unenthusiastic, from the manager down to the cleaning ladies. Finally, the property is rectangular and if you stay in one of the villas at the far end close to the beach, it is a long walk to the pool and restaurant. Would we stay again? Despite its drawbacks, overall this property is nicer than most of the alternative hotel/motel/camping options and the location is fantastic, so yes. But we would not pay high season prices.

I highly recomend this hotel for anyone that needs to get away from it all.
The staff is beyond great and the location gives you a sense that time has stopped just for you to relax.
