The hotel is ideally located on the shore, close to the ferry terminal and a 5 minute walk to the center of L’Ile Rousse. Parking is available free of charge but only few places. It is no problem to park in the adjacent street. Garden, swimming pool, jacuzzi and small pleasant private beach makes this hotel a small eden. Staff at the reception is highly welcoming and helpful.
Our party had two rooms: one spacious room in the main building with a large balcony and its gorgeous sea view overlooking the Pietra island’s lighthouse and one equally spacious room in a new wing opening directly onto the garden. Both rooms were spotless, comfortable, had modern fixtures, large beds, flat TV, free WiFi, bathrooms with all amenities. Towels, beach chairs available for the beach.
Taken inside, in the veranda or in the terrace facing the sea, breakfast is excellent with lots of local products and eggs to the order combined with a good and attentive service. The bar is a lively place thanks to the barman’s joyfulness.Overall service is faultless.
In short, at the Santa Maria you will be as close to paradise as one can be in L’Ile Rousse. less
