Despite the fact that it is thirty years old, the Club Med Sant'Ambroggio doesn't look its age. It has pleasant bedrooms, modern and comfortable facilities and foremost a great club for children, that will definitely please both parents and their kids. It's a shame the beach is so small.

    Location 8.5 /10

    In the Bay of Sant'Ambrogio. Several miles from Rousse Island, 9 miles north of Calvi and 7 miles away from the airport.

    Accommodation 6.50 /10

    The rooms of the Sant'Ambrogio are clear, bright, nicely laid out and pleasantly decorated and are a good level for a 2 trident Club Med. They have comfortable beds, an additional bed, two desks, large wardrobes, two safes, separate toilets and a small bathroom with shower. They all have a small terrace with garden furniture. Only negative point: no room has air conditioning.

    Overview 7.94 /10

    294 bedrooms set up on a promontory extending across the pretty bay of Sant'Ambrogio, a huge swimming pool, a large restaurant overlooking a bar on the terrace, an open air theatre, several tennis courts, a sailing club and an enormous children's club with all the amenities: with its location and its setting, the Sant'Ambrogio will make families who are Club Med followers very happy. Even though it was built more than 30 years ago, in 1968 exactly, the village offers facilities in perfect condition and tastefully decorated. Its main strong point: the children's club, in a large and old stone house completely renovated. Managed by many experienced and dynamic activity organisers, it can take 200 children in high season and has modern and varied equipment. The village accepts children from 4 to 17 years old. In fact, a 2 trident Club Med that really succeeds concerning comfort and atmosphere. Of course, it's not for peace and quiet, as a community atmosphere reigns here. However we deplore the small size of the beaches which means that around the swimming pool, it is often crowded. There is also a lack of ground and sea sports activities, a lot less than the usual Club Med.

    Food and drink 8.00 /10

    Located on the first floor of the main building, the restaurant is divided in two large rooms by buffets. A terrace with a capacity for about thirty people is available for open air eating but it is often crowded. The food is of excellent quality and there is a large selection of meat and fish. It is a pity that it doesn't open for longer hours. 1 h 15 mn to feed 750 people, even though the restaurant is well laid out and particularly the buffets, there is always a crowd at meal times.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    A coast lined with large blocks of rocks, quite beautiful actually, and with two small beaches on the bay, the access to the sea from the Club is quite disappointing. And the large swimming pool beach that is often crowded, doesn't really make up for this inconvenience. However, with a bit of perseverance, you always manage to find a place in the sun, for example by putting your towel on the rocks behind, peaceful and offering easy access to the clear blue sea. The sailing club doesn't offer any motorised activity, but a large choice of sailing sports: laser, windsurfing boards as well as sea kayaks. You can also do deep sea diving, with an external club (register at the reception, additional fee).

    To know

    If you would like to explore the Balagne or the South of Corsica, the club Med Sant'Ambrogio offers a car rental service. Those who don't want to drive could climb on a small train that goes from the Rousse island to Calvi and stops 500 m away from the hotel. Amateur drama lessons are proposed in a club room.

        Ce club med est très bien situé, environ 20 min de l'aéroport de Calvi. Il est organisé comme un petit village avec ses ruelles très agréables. Malheureusement il est très vieillissant en particulier les chambres. La restauration est elle catastrophique, heureusement l'équipe de pâtisserie m'a régalé. Concernant le Club et ses animateurs, j'ai retrouvé un vrai CLUB avec un vrai animateur et des GO très professionnels et agréables.

      Located on the Calvi hills, the La Villa proposes "high quality" services in pleasant and peaceful surroundings. Beautiful view, large rooms, good restaurant, there's nothing much to say about this high quality "Relais & Châteaux" except maybe the rather stiff atmosphere like its staff.

      Indisputably one of the best places in the Calvi region. Its advantages: very charming, bucolic and private setting, a gourmet restaurant and very comfortable accommodation. In short, a feel good hotel only a few miles from the beach and Calvi town centre.
