Theme based restaurants add that visual appeal to mouth-watering cuisine. And when you have village styled interiors on the main road of Calangute, it immediately transports you to the mustard fields of Ludhiana sitting on a charpai with 'Sarson Ka Saag' for the company. The open kitchen arrests you with steam and smoke emanating from within. Start off with the 'Mushroom Kurkure' - batter-fried mushrooms filled with cheese and khoya. Sinfully calorific. The next course would definitely be the 'Dahi De Kebab'- succulent hung curd morsels blanketed in a thin layer of bread and fried - crunchy and makes you want to ask for seconds. The 'Dhaba Meat' is a mildly spiced mutton curry which when had with 'Butter Roti' hits all the right notes. Add the 'Black Lentil Dal Balluchi' cooked overnight with butter and cream and you have a perfect meal. As you leave well satiated, the soft spongy 'Rasmalai in saffron reduced milk' is a memory to remember and take back with you.
We were just spending one nite here before our morning flight out. Hotel is only 5 minutes from the airport. There is a restaurant next door with 10% discount for hotel guests. We did not eat there. Bed Western was a great choice for us. Large comfortable hotel room, 3X larger TV than any other we had in Corsica (all the others were tiny), delicious full breakfast, nice infinity pool and jacuzzi. Internet was good but download speed was quite poor. The only big downside to the hotel is the location. It’s far away from the main tourist area. It’s extremely busy there and difficult to find parking. You wouldn’t want to drive, and park, there unless you had to. I have no idea about public transport from the hotel to that area. The hotel does not offer a shuttle. If you don’t mind the location, this is an excellent hotel.
We stayed two nights in a hotel room in the main building. Nothing negative to say! The room was pretty new and well equipped, enough power outlets to charge all your mobile toys, a fridge, and a very nice bathroom with a big sliding door to the shower. Yes, this hotel is not in the middle of downtown, but you should be able to recognize this at the time of your booking if you have a problem with that. As we were there in October and thus after the main season, we had no problem driving into Ajaccio downtown and find a place in a parking garage. There is a bakery and a supermarket in walking distance in case you want to grab something to eat. Make a right when you exit the property and both are where the gas station is. We did not visit the grill restaurant next door. We would stay there again because of the nice room and pool area!
This is a really good hotel/apartment if you don't mind a bit of a walk into town. If you do mind then don't stay here as your eating out choices are very limited. The walk is a good half an hour so approx. 1.5 to 2 miles. Top tip is get a train timetable and wait at Les Salines, a few minutes' walk away, for a train to Ajaccio. You still have a bit of a walk into the old town but it takes the sting out of it, especially if you plan on walking further round the coast. The apartment we stayed in was spotlessly clean, had a superb view and great facilities. The air con was fantastic and very much needed in September. We didn't use the pool, preferring the local Lazaret beach a bout 5 min utes' walk away. We did have a couple of issues with our apartment but they were fixed very speedily. The on-site restaurant, where you get 10% off, is basic but doesn't deserve the bad reviews it's had. It's not fine dining but perfectly ok for grills, burger, fish etc and the ice cream was lovely! You get toiletries and loo rolls and clean bedding and towels after 4 days.
For a four star hotel the staff is surprisingly ignorant about activities for tourists to do. We have traveled through Asia, Europe and the Middle East and found that nearly all four and five star hotels have a full or part time concierge. We finally were directed by to go to the Tourism Office. The location is near nothing and to get to the main part of town requires a 15 Euro cab ride or a 40 minute ride on the local bus. If you want a decent meal the only restaurant on site is limited requiring you go into town to get a decent dinner. At 4 AM on 7/24 we were wakened by the sound of alarms but no direction as to what to do. The two men who were manning the lobby desk running about apparently trying to figure out what to do. Guests were milling around the lobby and outside wondering what was happening and what to do. No one on the staff was taking the lead on the situation. I finally confronted one of them and was told it was not a fire but they were having some difficulty shutting the alarm down. I told him to then announce it to all of the guests standing around and not keep it a secret! Their staff is obviously in need of Fire Safety Training. The swimming pool lacks ladders to enable swimmers to climb in and out of the pool easily and safely. This forced adults and children to jump or pull themselves out risking injury. The rooms, while modern in design are not guest friendly. The design does not work and makes things difficult for guests. There is only a single closet about 30” in width to place clothing and not one drawer! Guests instead of unpacking are forced to live out of their suit case like some cheap motel. For guests staying for more than one or two days this is cumbersome and inconvenient. Further, do not bring dollars there is no place in Ajaccio to change them to Euros. You can however use the cash machines but be advised if you get a 50 Euro bill out of the machines the banks won't make even change! The people are friendly but in spite of its potential Ajaccio is not tourist friendly.
This is a strange place - lovely reception staff, nice room, decent enough pool, safe secure parking and easy access (via public transport) into main town. All good. Then you try to use the bar - once you have managed to get the bar tender off his phone (we were there for four days, tried every time) his surly manner was at odds with that of the reception staff, then the bar is only open until just after 10 pm - yes, 10pm. We also tried breakfast, decent enough, hot and cold food available - its just that that's where the food offer stop - no other food served all day - no meals/snacks available after breakfast? The response was that there was a restaurant adjacent, "food" could be had there - well, this is somewhat ambiguous as to what classifies as food is different to the fare we were served (lump of greasy cold battered frozen fish, a 400g steak (200g of bone, 100g of meat, 100g of fat) and 3 turkey twizzlers with chips for my kids (ok, not turkey twizzlers but three breaded fingers of chicken - aye right, fish fingers would have been better!) - perhaps we should have guessed when we sat down and were looking at the menu when a young French couple got up and left, midway through their obviously inedible dinner, our mistake for staying. Quite frankly the "restaurant" was appalling - no wonder it was empty. When we went back to the hotel the ever delightful reception staff took time to mark on a map of decent restaurants in Ajaccio to eat - they acknowledged how poor the adjacent site restaurant was - shame as it could have been popular. It was then that we were informed that the bar had now closed, it being 10pm. Groan. This really is an odd place - not a hotel at all, more like a B&B with a pool. Not one to recommend.
