What a disappointment !

For a +300€ night in a hotel, what a disappointment.
To start, while booking, I mentioned I wanted 1 king size bed. We found 2 beds next to each other with separate sheets. I went to the reception to mention it directly, the answer I received is the following : « in this hotel, it is how we do the king size bed, the one big bed like we have at home doesn’t exist, and we always use separate sheets, there is no room where you’ll find something different (???) » I have some doubts about the answer received.

After that, I can understand that each room has a different view but here what a shame compared to the pictures : a lot of trees, a bit of sea. Compared to the pictures, I wouldn’t say I received the room I paid for.
Last but not least, our night was a nightmare : we had the room next to the big doors of the entrance hall. We simply woke up all the time because of the noise of the door, at 4 am because of the noise of the cleaning in the hall, in the morning by the noise of the people going to the breakfast, etc.
What a shame to pay +300€ a night for that….
Nice hotel - beware Wi-Fi and restaurant

Have been staying at the Radisson Blue for the past 6 days.. here is my experience so far:
Location.. across from a lovely beach and about 30 minutes from Ajaccio. In all a pretty good location and easy drive to many nice beaches and attractions
Rooms.. we have a family room, with bunk beds, and the room is perfectly adequate. No real complaints, comfy, clean, room service daily.
Breakfast.. well worth the add on.. nice buffet with plenty of choices
Bar.. great service at the bar, very welcoming, drinks are good. Good at the bar is ok
Pool bar/cafe.. small menu for lunch, etc.. but we only went for lunch once as the service and food was not great. My wine never arrived when ordered so had to go to the bar to get it.. then was accused of having two glasses… very poor..
Pool.. nice pool, was not overly busy when we were here.. you have to sign out (and back in) your pool towels at the front desk. Totally inefficient, seems like they feel that guests are going to steal the towels. Very strange..
Restaurant.. way too slow. Service was pleasant but could not make up for the 3 hour service time, poorly cooked food. It is a shame as the location is so nice, but it seems like they do not have enough staff.
Wi-Fi - completely unusable. It is not often I have stayed in a hotel that you could not connect to the internet for so many days. Every day I was given another excuse as to why the internet was not working, but I honestly feel the management do not think this is important. Really not acceptable.
Overall.. nice family vacation hotel, breakfast is good, restaurant is over priced for the food and service quality, Bar experience was good. Lack of Wi-Fi a major issue here, mobile phone coverage not great either, so you have to be ready to not use your phone or iPad that much… no streaming movies for the kids, etc..

Comfortable and spacious rooms. The sea view is amazing, especially at the Sunset. The service is very good, most of the staff are friendly and professional.
It is easy to park in the hotel. Morning breakfast is well worth it, but it's a buffet breakfast. The swimming pool is clean, so are the bathrooms and bedrooms.
The rooms are nice and offer many nice features like a water boiler and free coffee and a minibar too. When you get a 3-course menu. The choice is very limited and no veggies available.
If you like a quiet and relaxing holiday, this hotel is not the right choice. it is more a child garden with lots of screaming little children. but saying that I have been there for breakfast many times.
I hope to go back.

Nice place, clean, good sized rooms, friendly staff, great breakfast. Small crowded pool. No beach loungers so you need to buy your own umbrella and matt (beach is on the other side of a road). Very expensive bar food (7€ for a plate of french fries!). WiFi doesn’t work for Apple products. This is Not near downtown Ajaccio, it is 20+ min drive away. Several restaurants are just around the corner. Overall nice stay for a week.
