Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were very happy with our stay in this stylish hotel during August 2022. It was a family holiday with 2 teenage daughters. Hotel offers both swimming pool(s) & beach access. Staff was helpful & friendly.

Hotel's Favourite
Our stay at Marinca was quite simply the best we have ever had. My wife and I were celebrating our 10 year anniversary, and it was the perfect place to do that. Your hardly could ask for a better check in experience, sitting on the patio over looking the bay while the staff walks you through all the property offers. Our room was spacious with it a private balcony. The beach was small but adequate for the amount of guests, and constant breeze keeps it comfortable while watching the waves roll in. We were glad we splurged for some time at the spa. It is secluded from the rest of the property and provided a totally different experience for us. What really made it special was the staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful (speaking much better English than we do French), but Paul the bartender, Gustav at the front desk, and Antoine at the beachside restaurant went above and beyond.

This place is so very special , it is probably one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff are attentive and friendly , they take time to get to know the guests and they are patient when you try to speak French ( they helped me learn also by saying words in French then repeating in English and allowing me to practice my response in French) The décoré is outstanding , the food is so good and they recommend other equally good places to eat off site. The hotel is by the prettiest beach in a gorgeous bay , if the beach is not your thing there several pools you can spend your whole holiday here visiting the spa beach and the pools . The gym is small but I had no need for this and there is a delicious herb garden used by the kitchen for meals. This place has a calming and magical feel and you can tell that a great deal of effort goes into every single detail. Even when things go a little awry ( such as reservation issues ) they fix things quickly and ensure the guests are duly looked after with minimal inconvenience. I would def return her again.

This review isn't about the Hotel itself, it is about the restaurant "La Paillote". We already liked the reception very much. The valet parking service took care of parking our car upon our arrival and a waiter helped us to find the way to "La Paillote" which was directly on the beach. On the way to the restaurant (which includes a lot of stairs) we could enjoy the magnificent view and also had the possibility to see the numerous pools and gardens of the hotel. Arrived at the bottom, another waiter welcomed us and escorted us to our table. The view was incredible. We ordered the "Assiette de charcuterie et fromage" (for 2) which was delicious and the perfect starter. As main course we chose the "Pêche locale". It was a perfect presented "Sole" which then got deboned by a waiter next to our table. Well what should I say, it was delectable! The dessert was a "fraisier", flawless. At last I wanted to say that the atmosphere, the service, the view and everything else was impeccable and that the money that you spend there isn't thrown away! We loved it! (Please ignore the Rooms Rating, I couldn't undo it)

Let’s just start with the fact that we left our room at 9am and got back at 4pm and the room still hadn’t been made up. Add to that the room, though attractive, great view and newly renovated is totally dis functional. The rain shower was a cold slow drip and got water all over the bathroom. There were two sinks, which is not needed bc there is minimal counter top space… I could go on

Let me start off by saying we really enjoyed our trip and experience. If we wanted a luxury resort in south Corsica but not the Porto Vecchio vibe, this is the place. First, the grounds are beautiful and the view cannot be beat (getting a top floor room would be a plus). Beach and service are great. Pools are nice but make sure to get seat by main pool (there are 5). Staff has the onboarding and first impression down and you will enjoy. That being said, the staff is a bit green for a resort of this class. Case and point my wife (a French National) was ill and made an inquiry about seeing a physician. It wasn’t so much the staff didn’t know, it’s that they didn’t really think to look in to it. We wound up taking care of it via SOS in Ajaccio (coincidentally the head of service talked to us casually a day later and volunteered that would be a solution - but again not all had instinct to figure out a solution). Food: The Beach Restaurant is a pleasant surprise and the bar is solid. The gastronomic restaurant was fine but somewhat disappointing given hype. Rooms are comfortable and shower is nice. Curiously, there is nowhere to hang a towel and my wife suggested having to get ready within bathroom chamber was difficult due to humidity. Internet is spotty. In all, a lovely time. Would do again but there could be improvements.

Just back from a truly AMAZING stay at Hotel Marinca with my daughter ! The magic already began in the parking lot with the kind smile of Coco at the Valet station who told us just leave the car, keys and baggage - he would take car of all . He DID and with total finesse. Next stop arrival at the Front Desk and that view that takes your breath away ..... the warm smile and even warmer welcome to our new home of 5 days by Gustave ! What a charmer. We then enjoyed our refreshments with him as he initiated us on our stay.....we saw alot of him and his equally charming and efficient co-worker Camille ! The two of them as well as Lea and the adorable young ladies that make up the reception staff where always on spot to answer my myriad of questions and special requests! Once Camille showed us to our beautiful room ( that we will request next trip) we knew we were in for a wonderful stay. Exploration off to the pools and beach was heaven - the grounds pristine and we could smell the basil, rosemary, thyme and roses in our room. Bravo to groundskeepers who are rarely seen - but exist ! The beach ( I am told it is rare to have one at you feet at hotels in Corsica) is exquisite - and we live on the Cote d'Azur ! PAUL, another charmer, set us up on our transats and was at our side for whatever we needed for the rest of our holiday. Always there, always helpful, always discreet - never too hot, never too many mattresses to move and NEVER too much sand to rake at the end of the day to maintain the beauty of the beach ! A very special MERCI to him and his co-horts Flo, Damien and Fred - thank you guys very much and good luck this summer !! Lunch and dinners at the Paillote were always a treat thanks to the professionalism of NANCY and the team. Nancy will go very far in the trade - a true gem. Marie, Antoine and Alesis add to a winning team at the Paillote - we send our sincere thanks to all ! The Bar William saw alot of us. Paul does a superior job at his super bar with the help of Benoit - always a pleasure to have a glass or two there! We are sure that all of this perfection ( and things get fixed RIGHT away if not ) is thanks to Laurence the Director of this fine Hotel Marinca ! Laurence is one of the most sincerely caring and savvy hoteliers I have ever had the pleasure to meet - warm thanks ! Not to forget the F&B Manager - really appreciate your top notch service and understanding - see you in September ! I have had the opportunity to visit many fine hotels in my life , been to hotel school in Switzerland and owned two hotels myself and HOTEL MARINCA is truly exceptional !! All our thanks, all good luck this summer and see you in September! MERCI MILLE FOIS

Great five-star hotel located in Propriano. Location is stunning, the whole staff is extremely nice and tries to make your stay as memorable as possible. The hotel has 2 in-house restaurants: - La Paillote (lunch and dinner), at the beach, affordable. - La Verrière (dinner only), delicious gastronomic restaurant with the newly onboarded Chef James Chauchat-Rozier accompanied by Chef Samy Loison for desserts. Tasting menus only (not à la carte), expensive obviously. Breakfast is very nice with a large choice of options: fresh seasonal fruits, different teas, healthy options (nuts, granola, goji berries, dates, honey, fig jam,…), but also croissants, a variety of breads (fig, cranberry, cereals,…), cheese from Corsica, smoked salmon, eggs, sausage,… Don’t hesitate to ask for lactose free options that are not necessarily displayed (I asked for an oat milk coffee latte and got it! As well as an almond milk yogurt). The cherry on the cake is that every morning, there are specialties made by Chef Samy Loison (google him if you don’t know who he is), the Pastry Chef from the gastronomic restaurant La Verrière. A couple of things can be improved: - the room was ok (comfortable bed, beach-view room with an amazing view) but the shower is made in a weird way: it doesn’t have a door which turns the bathroom into a messy wet-floor bathroom every time you shower, and that, even if you try to be careful. - The hotel is in a 5-star location but the service can be improved (heterogeneous staff: some staff here and there is extremely junior and lacks experience). Despite those 2 points, I HIGHLY recommend this hotel: - On the 1st issue, we reported it the next day: apparently the hotel was renovated recently and this issue has been well noted. They accepted to make the room twice a day to accommodate the inconvenience. - On the 2nd one, I do acknowledge that the hospitality sector has suffered from Covid and finding the proper staff has been quite challenging for the entire industry. It isn’t a problem unique to this hotel. Special thanks to: - Léa at the reception who gave us a warm welcome, a daily smile and was always helpful, - Laurence for her tips (what to do around the hotel and in Propriano) and for her daily talks at the breakfast making sure we were all ok, - The waiter at the Bar Williams, - The staff at the beach, - Emmanuel who recently took over the organisation of the breakfast and the service at La Verrière ; extremely professional, helpful, smiling, welcomes feedback and has great ideas for the improvement of the whole set-up: no doubt visitors this summer will be spoiled and lucky to stay at Marinca, - Laëtitia who is the best waiter, period! She serves at the restaurant La Verrière and in the morning for breakfast. Passionate, smiling, competent, definitely in the “5-star-range” staff. Thank you for making this stay a great one!

Hotel Marinca is a top notch hotel. The decor is stunning - very restful and relaxing. The views from the lobby, bar, beach restaurant and hotel rooms are hard to beat. The service and staff are outstanding! We cannot say enough good things about all of the staff we interacted with. The food at the beach and the beach restaurant were fantastic. We did not eat at the fancy restaurant so we can’t speak about that. It was wonderful to have access to an SUP and kayak at the beach (although a few more of each would be ideal). We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay there!!

Excellent stay here. Absolutely fabulous service from the restaurant staff to the front desk to the car park. Lovely beach with chairs and umbrellas, multiple pools that are never crowded - lots of nooks and crannies for sun and relaxation, a room with a comfortable bed, nice terrace and lots of storage space, a breakfast overflowing with choices, and an excellent beach restaurant. In fact, every time we dined out for dinner to explore we came back thinking that our dinners at the hotel were considerably better. A lovely place to unwind. My only criticism was the strange bathroom set-up - our bathroom was essentially open to the bedroom area, with a screen you could pull but otherwise a very open shower with a gold vanity that was very Las Vegas. But that was a small thing in an otherwise lovely and very relaxing stay. Good job and thank you.
