Very Good10 Reviews
2.39km from Aktuel BrasserieVery comfortable, extremely clean. Lovely air conditioning to keep you cool during the hot weather. We had a comfortable room with a small balcony at the back of the hotel overlooking the railway line. The view was perfectly fine, quite interesting really, very quiet when we shut the sliding doors. The pool was gorgeous but found it slightly annoying that quite a few people put towels on sunbeds to reserve them, and then disappeared off somewhere for hours, leaving very few sunbeds available at times. The hotel staff were very welcoming but many of the waiting staff spoke little English. Breakfast was great and good value. A good variety of hot and cold food,as well as fruit, nuts, cereal, bread and pastries. The evening menu was very nice, limited if you are vegetarian though and a little bit pricey. The hotel was handy for Recanto Beach through an underpass. However, the underpass could have done with some maintenance, a good clean and painting. The lifts to the underpass did not work. I presume that the underpass is not the responsibility of the hotel though, but probably the local council. Recanto Beach was beautiful, white sand, very clean. There was very little shade on the beach so a sun shade is a good idea. There was a lifeguard station which was manned during the day. There is a handy snack bar serving cold drinks and paninis during the day. Further along the beach was the wonderful Tahiti Bar. We had several excellent meals there. They are open during the day and in the evening. They hire out sun beds in front of the bar. The hotel was next to Recanto train station. The train kept to the timetable, which was given to me by the hotel reception. 2 Euros to get to Ajaccio in approx 5-10 minutes. A trip into the city is a must. We spent a couple of lovely days exploring Ajaccio. It cost 25 Euros to get a taxi to the airport, the journey took 5 minutes. All in all, a lovely relaxing stay in Corsica. Brush up on your French before you go and a phrase book is a must if your French is as bad as mine. Consider hiring a car, which we will definitely be doing next time so we can see more of this stunning island.
