Hotel Casadelmar, Porto Vecchio, Corsica

Very much liking it here. The pool is beautiful. There is also a sister property (La Plage Casadelmar) across the bay that they take you to by boat if you want that. But main hotel I think is more luxurious to stay. We used beach a La Plage on day and enjoyed.

Best day day was by boat, arranged by Casadelmar, along coast to Bonifacio.

One negative (esp for bhrubin!). Was hard to get room cool. Had to keep shades drawn during day to keep out sunlight/heat. And even then it was cool-ish, but not cold, even though thermostat was set to 18 Celsius. Maintenance couldn’t really do anything about it.

You got that right! But thanks so much for sharing (and for commenting on the air con). Looks beautiful, at least.

Any recent updates from anyone here? Just booked 4 nights in September and would appreciate any recent feedback. Is renting a car a must?

An absolute must unless you plan to just stay at the hotel. We wanted to go all over Corsica and did in our 5 nights there.

Just wanted to say, don’t sleep on this hotel. The grounds and views were amazing, service top notch, and food fantastic. We went at the end of peak season, but this area was not as touristy as people say. Really impressive overall.
