“what a stink!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

we were very excited as we pulled up in our cars. the place looks lovely, and the scenery is to die for. but what a shame - from the receptionist with the sour face to the stink of the sewers. to make things worse they had muddled our reservations and the rooms that were to be shared by men, only had double beds, and they refused to do anything about it other than offer us extra rooms - at our own expense. we were trapped ,as porto vecchio was packed, and it was getting late. we had reserved a table at the hotel "restaurant" - what a joke. i felt sorry for the girl serving us, (who was the nicest part of our stay (thankyou)) as we were given the choice of egg mayonnaise, or chicken nuggets! and i dont think i have ever tried to eat anything as tough as the entrecot that we were given. have to say that my room was very pretty, and the view amazing, but it is a little disconcerting when you flush the toilet and it pumps into your shower!

The pictures looks ok, and the reviews are so so. However, on arrival at this hotel I was extremely disappointed. We were in a standard room on the ground level. Although the rooms were clean, they we small, much smaller than many better cheaper hotels we have previously stayed at in this area. The decor was very average, and dated. For some unknown reason, these dreadful incongruous electric shutters covered the entrance to our room.
The pool was advertised as being open until 19h, but actually shut at 16h, so there was nowhere to get a drink or snack before dinner unless you wanted to drive down the road.
Breakfast was poor, just pastries and Orange juice.
Finally, on departure (to return home) we left some clothes in the wardrobe, and on arrival at home we immediately emailed Alta Rocca to inform them and ask for them to post the left items of clothing back. We instantly received an email back saying that they had found the items left in the wardrobe, and would send them back. Unfortunately the items never arrived, and subsequent emails from Alta Rocca claimed that the clothes were never found. When we forwarded their initial email to them, the refused to contact us.
I would not recommend this hotel, simply because there are much better cheaper hotels in the area.

Just returned from a week at the Hotel Alta Rocca. The staff were very friendly, our room was lovely with stunning views and spectacular scenary and kept very clean. The hotel is ideally situated for exploring the south and close to beautiful Palombaggia beach. In hindsight we would probably rent a villa next time around as the hotel has no restaurant and eating out is on par if not more expensive than London. All in all the island of Corsica is something special.
