Very enjoyable.Posted Oct 14, 2013
Pros: The rooms were lovely, the dining room was lovely, it's location near the beach was a big plus, and the food was superb.
Cons: Refurbishing the reception area is long overdue. It coloured my initial response to the hotel, so instead of thinking 'wow!' I thought 'oh dear'.
Location: Ajaccio town was great with loads of shops, a market every morning, a little tourist 'train' ride around the capital, boat trips to nearby islands...
This is a really lovely hotel. The rooms have been newly refurbished, so has the dining room, they look lovely. The pool is a good size and is cleaned every day. The beds are made every day, and fresh towels are available every day if you want them. The staff are very friendly, and most speak English as well as French. The food in the restaurant was excellent, genuine four-star, fine dining - delicious! There are only two very slight down sides. One, the reception area is still waiting to be refurbished, but this isn't a problem as we don't spend much time in it! Two, it's a 15 minute drive to the town. There is a bus stop outside the hotel, but the Corsican bus drivers seem to make up a new time-table every day! We managed though, and the buses were much cheaper than the taxis! We had a sea-view looking out onto the bay, which is beautiful and highly recommended. The beach was a short walk from the hotel too, so on a sunny day you could choose the pool or the beach or both! Overall we had a lovely time at this hotel and would definitely return again.

Pool-blessed comfort near the beach and airportPosted Aug 31, 2013
Pros: Location, pool, lovely comfortable bedrooms.
Cons: Prices for sea-facing rooms in high season more like five-star, WiFi could work better, more information should be provided about access by bus.
Location: The beach is literally across a main road, and it'll take you 15mins to walk to/from the airport - no need for taxis if you've only got light luggage.
Chose the Campo dell'Oro for its location near the beach and a shortish walk – literally – from the airport. Situated by a stop for two bus lines (couldn't they inform visitors of this fact?), this upgraded three-star features extremely comfortable guest rooms, a decent restaurant, friendly staff and a large pool with loungers. In high season this isn't cheap (nor is the restaurant) but in the shoulder months you could pay the same amount for far worse in downtown Ajaccio. If you're on a budget or don't feel like splashing out hefty sum for a meal in the in-house restaurant, there's an early-closing snack bar directly opposite – use the underpass to negotiate the main road. Free in-room WiFi worked reasonably well. Rain showers in the bathrooms a nice touch of luxury. Could have done with foreign channels on TV. Otherwise, a really pleasant stay.

Great hotel by the beachPosted May 15, 2013
Location: Go to the beach. Otherwise to get to downtown you'll need a car.
Pros: If you're in Ajaccio for the beach, this is the place to stay. You can take a quick tunnel that gets you across the highway and onto the beach in 5 mins. The hotel itself is very clean, comfy, and the staff is friendly. Wifi is reliable and worked well for me, even for Skype calls. Cons/Tricky things: Outside of that, the hotel is a bit removed from downtown (maybe 5 mins by car, 30 mins walking). You can walk there, but you will be on the side of the highway and in car fumes going and coming back. There is a bus station right in front of the hotel, but you're still in Corsica - which means that buses/public transit is pretty bad. I think the bus was coming every hour or so, maybe more around rush hour. A car is highly recommended to get around. If you're getting a great rate on the room, you may also end up in one of the rooms facing the back of the hotel. It's not a problem until 5ish am, when you realize that the little train tracks in the back are not just quaint. They are actually functional and trains pass through every 30 mins or so. Not awesome if you're a light sleeper...I recommend packing some ear plugs and enjoying your stay anyway :)
