Friendly receptionists and a. warm welcome. Lovely hotel rooms and great pool, sun terrace and fantastic views over harbour. However, all the above comes at a price (above the £250/night) - don’t stay here if you want to get a relaxing night’s sleep (which is , after all, one reason to stay in a hotel ). There is a quayside bar(B52) that is open until 2am and literally blasts music across the beautiful harbour. I’m no prude, and enjoy clubbing, but this just dominates everything which spoils the whole experience and I fail to understand why one business can be allowed to dominate the whole area.
A windy hour-long ferry ride from Santa Teresa landed us in the picturesque French port of Bonifacio on the island of Corsica. The boats approach felt like a scene from Troy with the citadel sitting high on sheer cliffs with walls that looked impregnable. The old fishing port was now a modern marina with super yatchs moored next to each other almost like a car park or in this case a boat park. Restaurants, at least one boasting a Michelin status, competed for space around the bay each trying to outdo the other with even more imaginative fish or seafood dishes. Some of the fish looked so large or weird Jacques Cousteau may have struggled to find them. Hotel Solemare The hotel sits on the less populated side of the bay that consequently gives it better views, especially at night. Sympathetically designed our room, located on the fourth floor, was large enough to be comfortable for even the most challenging of guests but small enough not to have become a pastiche of its former self. The bathroom was unusually large for a room of its size with a walk-in shower; the toilet was separate. The room, equipped with a bistro balcony - a balcony big enough for bistro chairs and table - had those all important views of the marina. A double bed, fridge and wide-screen TV were all plusses. Tea making facilities would have completed the list. The service throughout was excellent with all of the members of staff ready to assist with the simplest or more complex task. Even though our ferry back to Sardinia had been cancelled and the hotel fully booked, we were offered a room so that we were not left destitute and homeless. If this isn't five star treatment I don't know what is. Day 2 - Corsica Citadel From Hotel Solemare it is a short but challenging walk to the medieval citadel. Challenging because of the steep climb to its entrance. Those who have any impairment preventing them from walking or honest enough to admit that they are carrying more than a few excess pounds should consider the mini train - yes the train is very Disney but it beats a defibrillator followed by cardiac massage. Once you get to the top it is hard to be disappointed. The citadel is beautiful even though it is crumbling in places. There are enough shops and restaurants to entertain most visitors. Churches and a cemetery make up other attractions. I did say cemetery it is a sight to behold and very photogenic. …
We enjoyed our stay in this hotel very much. Solemare offers free parking which is a great advantage in the high season. The rooms are small but have a great design and are very comfortable. The view from the balcony on the harbour and the citadel are priceless. The breakfast (on a wonderful terrace while watching the yachts in the harbour) was really good and the buffet bigger as elswhere in Corse. We also enjoyed the pool area. Near the hotel there is a little train that takes you to the historic center and back for 5 Euro if you don‘t want to walk.
We had the family room for 4 and were delighted with it as it was partitioned to allow adults some privacy from children. We used the fridge to store our wine for the evenings to sit on balcony overlooking the marina and all the life on the other side of the shore which meant it wasn't noisy for where it was. I dont understand why some comments moaned about bar noise when one chooses to be in the heart of things then dont moan. We would come back again. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for the confusing two price breakfast.
This hotel is right on the marina so ideal for watching the constant arrival and departure of the impressive yachts that frequent this town. The hotel has its own pool, which is a huge bonus as the beaches are a drive away. It’s spacious, warm and has plenty of sun beds available. Towels are also provided. The views to the old citadel are excellent, The rooms will vary with price (obviously) but are not huge. That said most overlook the marina so the view is exceptional. They also manage to squeeze in a fridge so you can enjoy a chilled glass of wine on your balcony and watch the action on the water while the sun goes down. Some reviewers have mentioned the noisy bar opposite. We didn’t find this a problem as we simply closed the doors and shutters and turned on the aircon. If you prefer to sleep with everything open then take good earplugs or go and join the hip crowd in the bar (B52). The marina location means all the bars and restaurants on the waterfront are a few minutes away. Another 5-10 mins will have you up in the old town which is packed with options to eat and drink. If you’ve hired a car it has a car park too. The hotel doesn’t do dinner but it serves a breakfast. You pay for this and the price depends on whether you have a limited served option or go for the unlimited buffet. For the extra 6€ I’d go for the buffet or eat out.. If I return to Bonifacio I would certainly consider this hotel. …
You can't ask for a better location. Great room with a balcony overlooking the port . Parking is outdoor , can be a little tight but it is gated. They offer continental and full breakfast which is nice , you can eat outside or inside .There is a bar as well . Front desk staff is extremely pleasant and makes you feel very welcome in Bonifacio .
This hotel was perfect for visiting Bonifacio. Our room overlooked the marina and the citadel. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was well-appointed - beds were very comfortable. Standard of cleanliness was excellent. There was a good selection of food available at the breakfast buffet. Nearby are plenty of good restaurants. There is a nice hotel bar providing a wide range of drinks at reasonable prices in a peaceful setting overlooking the marina. You are near the start of the tourist train if you don't want the steep walk up to the mediaeval city and it is also close to the ticket offices for boat trips. I would love to go back there again someday. The swimming pool was appreciated after a busy day sightseeing.
We had a suite which was a good size and a comfortable king size bed. Good sized bathroom with the shower over the bathtub. I would have liked a walk in shower as I had a fall in a bathtub recently that left me with some pain and using a crutch. We had a balcony overlooking the port and the citadel. Terrific location with lots of restaurants and bars on your doorstep. The hotel has parking which is a plus as parking can be very difficult in this town. The reception staff spoke English and always had a smile for us. Wifi was frustrating but this has been the case in all of our accomodation in Corsica over the past two weeks.
Close to paradise - wake up in the morning and step out onto your own balcony overlooking one of the most beautiful ports, with a continuous theatre of all sizes and types of vessels coming and going. Breakfast on the terrace, then ready for a the day doing many of the wonderful activities this region has to offer. Hotel staff very friendly, efficient and helpful.
A charming 3 star hotel with an amazing view overlooking the marina. Whether sitting on your balcony early eve watching the theatre of the fabulous yachts and boats coming in, or drinking one of Adrian's great cocktails, it's quite the high life! Do take ear plugs as a very hip bar with music until 1am is across the marina! The music didn't really disturb us or enjoy our fun.
