Comfortable hotel but service lacks luster

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Rémi G. Business - 26/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I was surprised by the lack of flexibility offered by your staff whenever I asked for something. Only brewed coffee and no expresso for breakfast. Only orange juice proposed when graprefuit juice is also proposed for cocktails. Just surprising to receive that kind of response when staying in a Sofitel...

Great location, frantastic swimming pool, service to improve

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Anonymous Families - 01/08/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The landscape is breathtaking, as the experience from the heliport, and hot temperatures are easier to cope with in this configuration (presqu'ile). Good air conditioning also helps. The swimming pool is unique, especially with very few people as in July this year and including for swimmers who need to train. View from the room was beautiful. Service in the room (cleaning, etc.) was satisfying. Service in the hotel in general was not satisfying for a 5 stars hotel, and very poor in the bar/restaurant. No willingness from the manager to accommodate simple requests. Young staff very pleasant but poorly trained. But excellent brunch barbecue (at least the second time). The new Director seems to be aware and willing to improve the overall level of service. Very good breakfast but rather expensive, as for all dishes and drinks on the menu, compared to other good restaurants in the vicinity and benchmark in general. Very nice gym. A special mention to Fabien, great coach and very nice human being. With the Covid, forget about the spa/thalasso (forget at all time, compared to other similar establishments), as the management was not particularly pleasant. As some facilities were not available (sauna, etc.), a price reduction could have been envisaged. No courtesy shuttle: a real issue as the hotel is over 30 minutes walk from everything.

Dear Nathalie T., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Golfe d'Ajaccio Thalassa sea & spa.

New Year Eve at Sofitel Porticcio

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Virginie G. Couples - 06/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Beautiful location and comfortable stay (the hotel is quite old but the decoration is colorful and modern, and the bedroom full of light) Very nice, smiling and helpful staff in all circumstances (reception, house keeper, restaurant, bar), in particular when trying to look for a restaurant in Porticcio: thank you ! Cannot really tell for the spa (did not see many persons) but we only used the sauna and hammam end afternoon. Overall very good restaurant with sophisticated and tasty cuisine (minor omissions of orders and dishes sometimes too salty). The New Year Eve diner was excellent. In addition the jazz band was very good and the decoration was refined. Some mismatch in the dish/wine readiness but minor since the spirit was friendly. I had come to the hotel for business reasons these past years and was happy to enjoy it for some holidays.

Dear Mr Bertho Dear Patrick We thank you for the beautiful room you gave us. The service in the room was excellent; for the cleaning and the evening turn-over. Your new chef, Mr Stephan Remon, he is an excellent asset for your hotel! We know his work from Sofitel Budapest. We had a few un-pleasant moments during our stay, some of the staff were very cru, I did my complain to Ms Magali, Guest relation, but I’m not sure if she really care. I told her “When the cat is away, the mice are dancing on the table" Finally when we paid our bill, I found an cost that I really did’t know about. When I came to the reception desk they could not give me an explanation neither. It was “only” €19,80. If they tried with me, are they doing this also with other clients? Sincerely François @ René

Dear Francois G., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Golfe d'Ajaccio Thalassa sea & spa. Mr Bertho is aware of this and will be contacting you very soon to discuss your experience with you. Sincerely, Custumer service

I was overall satisfied with the Sofitel but thought they could have better hosted their guests, for example providing a complimentary shuttle given its relative isolation, providing USB charging ports, complimentary small items like matches, lighters, and would have added the finishing touches to earn a luxury label.

Dear Gaelle B., 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 am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. We have taken note of your remarks and we will try to satisfy them for your next stay. It is true that a shuttle service would be an asset because we are set back from the city center. Currently, we work with local taxis, but we will try to consider your request. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one.

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 Confirmed reviews ALL

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

S. A. S. Families - 05/09/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

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!

Marina Friends - 26/08/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

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
