    There was little to complain about. Maybe a larger pillow would have been nice!

    A simple hotel in many ways the pool and the breakfast both exceeded my expectations, and the staff were very friendly and efficient. We would definitely return.

    There was no elevator so had to drag my suitcase up two flights of stairs. Lighting in the room was a bit dingy.

    Great location, near the Citadel, the main shopping area and harbour which had great restaurants and ice-cream shops. All of this was about a 5 - 10 minute walk from the hotel. Room equipped with air-conditioning. Great views of the sea from my window. Clean rooms and helpful, friendly staff. Would stay here again if I went back to Calvi.

There is a small, quiet beach nearby and a nice pool on property. Everything is clean and well kept. Breakfast was simple and nicely presented. All around nice find in Calvi.

    We liked everything. There was no problem in the hotel.

    The room was very nice, the bed comfortable, only several steps to the terrace and the nice swimming pool. The hotel is situated very near to 2 small rocky beaches and about 15 min to walk to the main sandy beach. The restaurants and shops are also near the hotel. It is about 5 minutes to walk to the fortress. All the hotel employes are very helpfull people and they speak English. They do maximum for the guests to feel very well during the stay in the hotel. They helped us with everything what we needed.

    Wow there are lots of nice things to say about this place. It is very close to the water, the Citadel of Calvi and the old town shopping and restaurants. The staff were really nice. My room was slightly eccentric, but in a good way. (The shower was at one end of the room and the WC at the other.) My room had its very own breakfast nook (see pic). Really good value for the money. And Calvi itself is awesome, too.
