Hotel Mariana

Address: Avenue Santa Maria, 20260 Calvi
Tel: 04 95 65 31 38  Fax: 04 95 65 32 72

The seaside view depicted on the Hotel Mariana’s website may be slowly disappearing, thanks to a new hotel that is being built between it and the beautiful bay surrounding the port city of Calvi, but it still has much to offer. There’s plenty of parking, and it’s only a five-minute walk to the city centre and the city’s citadel and lively port filled with huge yachts and excellent seafood restaurants. The mostly Eastern European staff is polite and efficient. There’s a nice hotel bar, a new indoor/outdoor pool on the rooftop that offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, a spa with massage services, and even Wi-Fi (albeit at a small service cost). The breakfast is a little expensive, but the cost of the rooms, relative to other hotels in Calvi, is reasonable.

Useful information: Rooms: €70-€195; suites €195-€565. Breakfast: €12 (only €8 in low season). Open all year. English spoken.
