Good service, staff & panoramas but hotel needs renovation as it's not up to brand/luxury standards

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Louay Couples - 09/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Excellent service and helpful staff especially Ms. Maya who helped us change our original room which was too small. General location, great panoramic views, good breakfast, pool & a cosy beach. However, the standard rooms are too small for a 5 star luxury hotel brand like Sofitel and they need to be renovated. Reception, the Spa and corridors are not up to usual Sofitel luxury brand standards - therefore, the price (value for money) does not correspond to the general quality of the product.

The best in Ajaccio

Customer review rating 4.4/5

S. A. S. Families - 05/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Sofitel is a good upscale hotel in ajaccio. It has beautiful views from the room overlooking the bay. Decent breakfast, friendly staff and family friendly facilities. The waiters, receptionists and concierge are great team members. Hotel could improve on the below: Very basic room service menu after 10! Just cold cuts and cheese! A five star hotel like sofitel, especially in a high season when the rates are too high, they should consider offering a bit more varieties like salads or sandwiches in room service during night menu when guests are coming from time zones and countries. They should have a chef at nite, when they charge a min of 500 euros per nite in high seasons. I lost my branded cap at the hotel terrace bar. I forgot it on our sofa it at night and enquired about it next day. They couldn’t find it till now. A resort with fully secured access and secluded from public, they could have checked on CCTV or security cameras to know who got the cap. They didn’t take any initiatives for searching it and I feel the hotel doesn’t care about safety and security matters! It’s not about a cap but a security concern in a luxury hotel that charge min 300-500 euros per night!

Calm and relaxing

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Marina Friends - 26/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Welcoming atmosphere, extremely clean and well maintained amenities. High quality food, however in spite of big variety of breakfast dishes i wish there would be slight variations in them, like different vegetables stew, etc on daily basis in breakfast buffet. Well maintained pool, and gym amenities. However, twice during our stay pool was closed for maintenance well after 8am opening time, and reception staff would't be aware of when it would be open. It's slightly inconvenient if your routine include swimming before breakfast. Lunch and dinner are excellent quality. Again, for a week stay I wish there would be more variety. Concierge service for booking trip and daily adventures were very efficient and knowledgeable. Overall, we enjoyed our week stay.

Nice hotel in amazing place. Unfortunately, service is low level far beyond our expectations

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Paul Couples - 19/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Excellent place to enjoy the sea and sun. Building is outdated and needs renovation. Hotel’s staff is not good at all - not welcoming the guests, not pleasant experience with front desk to get car, book the restaurant etc.

Really nice hotel but unfortunately poor service to be five star

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Joakim O. Friends - 08/08/2019 AccorHotels review

The hotel is definitely not a five star hotel, very much because of the poor service. The location is wonderful, the classic room is rather spacious, nicely decorated and with really comfortable beds. The big salt water pool and the small beach are above expectation, though the beach is small. The pool deck is large and has plenty of deck chairs (those could, however, been of a better quality, they were not five star standard!). The food in the restaurants was very good and nicely presented. Both inside and outside lounges are very cool and elegant, and having a drink in the sun set at the garden/outside lounge area is a treat – if you get the drink! And here you have the hotel’s big challenge that made me and my travelling friends (we were nine in the group staying for one week) both disappointed, frustrated and very irritated. The service was extremely slow in the bar, the pool area, and in both restaurants. We had breakfast, dinner and lunch in the main restaurant (a disappointment was that the table setting was the same for lunch and dinner - you would have expect of a five star hotel a least table linen for the dinner!), and for lunch and dinner, from ordering to getting the food on the table (one course) it could take more than 45 minutes. One day at lunch we mentioned that we had an appointment at 14.00 (we arrived at 12.30) – still we had to wait and wait (also after talking to the maître d’ about the problem but no action was taken!). The same thing happened in the bar restaurant where we had several lunches. From ordering to getting drinks and food it could take up to an hour. And back to the outside lounge area, drinks were even forgotten to be served! This is not what you expect from a five star hotel. Even though the food was good, the prices for both food and drinks are stiff and with this kind of poor service, exaggerated. Claiming to be a five star hotel and having such a high price level, the service must be impeccable and it’s not. I don’t want to blame the personnel, they were kind and pleasant and tried hard but seemed to be inexperienced and and having their first job with no training. The total lack of supervision, maître d’ and management throughout the hotel was astonishing. I've seen similar complaints on Tripadvisor and what’s really surprising is that the management of the hotel and of the Sofitel group have not to picked up these obvious challenges the hotel has before the high season started. Also, when checking out the hotel had charged us 200 Euro, 18% more than we should have been charged - mainly because of lack of a good billing system in the restaurant for breakfast, dinner and lunch. The receptionist was not very kind and did not offer any excuse for the mistake. All nine of us really liked the hotel and, despite what my review might indicate, we want to come back. However, to do so I would like to see reviews during the coming year that tells another story that the hotel really lives up to the its five stars.

Horrible customer service/Nice grounds

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Jaime D. Solo - 25/07/2019 AccorHotels review

I chose this hotel because of the Sofitel brand and because I wanted to spend my Birthday in beautiful location in a luxury hotel. While the grounds were great the room and the customer service was seriously lacking at the hotel. I had dinner in the restaurant one night and the servers were very neglectful. It was like I was not in the restaurant! The concierge and the front desk service was amazing.

Beautiful hotel, but a need to upgrade service level

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Hilde M. Friends - 25/07/2019 AccorHotels review

The hotel is absolutely beautiful, and we would love to come back. However, in some areas the service did not fit with the price level of the hotel even if the staff in general was friendly. Some examples: 1) Wrong pricing on the bills on one meal, and charged breakfasts we did not order. Had to control everything, no compenastions offered for mistakes. 2) Too slow delivery of food and drinks, the staff was not always enough "on". 3) Should have a more healthy express breaksfast offer, not everyone likes high carbo croissants for breakfast or a big buffet. 4) Mostly the food was good, but sometimes not good enough and not for such a price level: Example: Cecar salat with very dry chicken and not chrispy croutons. Maybe the price lever could have been reduced on some types of food to more in line with expectancy. The soft drinks could have been reduced from 7 to 5 euro, and we would probably not have bought in the shop. We can for sure afford it, but it exceeds a critical level when it feels too much when we stay for one week and drink a lot. 5) Needs one more therapist in the Spa do do strong massage. 6) The guy in the training center could have been more active asking if we needed help.

Beautiful location. Awful noises. Not according to a 5 stars hotel

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

milagrosgraf Couples - 20/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

The location is certainly incredible . But in my opinion you cannot have a five-star hotel On the landing and taking off path of all the Planes come in I’m going, during the planes Carmen I’m going do you are in the night in the early morning night and early morning. We were not aware of this condition. it should be described. I stayed at many Sofitel’s ( Rome, New York, Montevideo, Vienna and Buenos Aires). I always book a classic room. This time, it was below standard. On the plus side: the location and the personnel. All of them nice, helpful and very courteous. I hope to have a better experience on my next Sofitel at Saint Petersburg in August.

Dear guests, We are glad you enjoyed our beautiful location but do regret that you were disturbed by the planes. Indeed, the hotel is located 20 minutes away from the airport which is sometimes noisy during summer time. We are sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow us to express our sincerest apologies. We wish you a pleasant stay in Saint Petersburg and hope to earn back your trust in Sofitel. Best Regards, Magali Perrot Guest Experience Manager

This is a great location and within a fair distance from Ajaccio by car .The rooms are fine but not really very modern .Staff have been very nice but sometimes lacking of seniority.Overall a very enjoyable place with the advantage of having access to a so called a private beach .

A lovely resort spoilt by poor air conditioning

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Anonymous Couples - 01/07/2019 AccorHotels review

We found the resort great, for the most part. The location was outstanding, facilities were excellent, breakfast very good. But what a shame that something couldn't have been done about the air-conditioning in our room (154), which was almost non-existent. During the hot weather that prevailed at the time, this made the room quite uncomfortable. Opening the door to the very pleasant balcony wasn't an option, because this only let the mosquitoes enter.

Beautiful landscape, poor Hotel experience

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Chantal D. Couples - 19/06/2019 AccorHotels review

I am an interior designer and I pay very much attention to the details...that make the difference. We booked the Hotel as it was mentioned a 5* and we previously booked the Sofitel in Essauira, Morocco which was a Great Experience. Unfortunately we have been very much deceived with your Hotel in Porticcio. The landscape is beautiful and the Hotel garden as well. A part from that The Hotel lobby should be renovated as it looks old fashion and it does not correspond to a 5* entrance. The swimming pool is not appealing due to the fact that there should be some green shrubs and flowers at least on one side of it. Our room was nice and the view beautiful. The room's bathroom very old fashioned and badly kept in good condition should be renovated. We have been very much deceived by the Hotel SERVICE: the breakfast was poor in terms of choice of food. Nobody was coming around the table to take the order and the dirty dishes. Very often there were NO clean dishes around the breakfast food presented. The worst: The dirties table linen are not cleaned and put aside on a pile to be presented once again to the client...We have been given dirties linen. The furniture in the garden should be kept clean and in good condition (this is related especially to the fabric/cushions). Due to the above I was not even interested to experience your Thalassa treatments.

Dear Guests, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Golfe d'Ajaccio Thalassa sea & spa. We are sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow us to express our sincerest apologies. In the past months, we have been renovating and upgrading our beautiful house especially our bar and restaurant. We are of course always looking for improvement and will keep on embellishing our different areas to always please better our guests. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again and wish you a very nice summer. Sincerely, Magali Perrot Guest Experience Manager.

An excellent holiday at a great hotel

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Peter H. Couples - 05/06/2019 AccorHotels review

We were able to stay in our preferred room, 140, with its exceptional terrace, and that made the holiday for us. The hotel is one of our favourite destinations in Europe and didn't disappoint. The staff were very friendly, and helpful, though there did seem a lack of direction sometimes in the restaurant. The food there was very good though, but the lack of a maitre'd was apparent from time to time. We had one unfortunate incident with room service, where the wait was longer than expected and my dinner ( the excellent Beef burger with salad and fries) was cold, and only marginally better the second time after another 20 minutes wait. Guest Relations were very helpful though and we were offered a free cocktail with our meal the following evening, which we really enjoyed. We will certainly be back next year and will look forward to another wonderful holiday at the Sofitel.

A super end to a lovely hike across Corsica

Customer review rating 4.4/5

B. Friends - 24/05/2019 AccorHotels review

Staff were welcoming on our arrival even though we arrived directly from a 7 days hike across Corsica. The hotel room lived up to its reputation with the exception that the bed/room selection had not been taken into account despite re-confirming at the reception on arrival. It took way too long for the hotel staff at reception to resolve the problem. This was disappointing. The restaurant has stunning views and the food a high quality but we felt the sommelier was condescending and unhelpful with us. We were convinced that had there been a man at our table, the service would have been different. The spa service was utterly super and made our stay so worth while - thank you!

Dear guests, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Golfe d'Ajaccio Thalassa sea & spa. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I also thank you for your comments regarding the inconveninces met at the reception and at the restaurant. The start of a new season implying some adaptations and changes might have led to the troubles you experienced. Be assured that your remarks help us improve our methods and service to make this new season as pleasant as all our past ones. Thank you again for sharing your experience, Sincerely, Magali Perrot Guest Experience Manager
