My young companion and I recently spent a week here and, all things considered, we had a great holiday. The staff were friendly and helpful, which in the last week of the season was impressive. The food was nutritious and plentiful, the waterfront was well-manned and ran a range of activities, there was lots of other games available on land, and people who only wanted to read their Kindle on a sun-lounger could do just that.
On the downside, the hotel resembled a 1970's Black Sea resort for middle-ranking KGB agents and their families. The beach was not sheltered and there were usually sizeable waves which made it trickier for beginners to get up on windsurfers, and the weather, as you'd expect from the location, was not consistently sunny. Then again, the flight was short and, if you are canny and get a decent discount on the holiday price, it's good value for money. Oh, the booze is sold at London pub prices (I suspect at quite a mark-up on local prices), so be prepared to fork out easily £100+ for your bar bill for the week, depending on thirst.
Overall, as long as you get a good price, you will have a good time at St Lu.

As soon as we were on the plane the holiday began. Meet by staff at Bastia airport, bags taken care of. Rooms are tired but clean and we had great sea views. No issues with water pressure (2nd floor). Staff from all of the various operations that go to make a great holiday were super. The resort was lovely and the food was very nice and a good choice, well presented.
Pleanty of activities if you want them, with staff who are happy to give the customer time.
We will look at coming back to San Lucianu but will also be looking at other MW beach resort holidays.

We had a great week although I think a lot of that was due to our children being very happy. Our first impressions of the resort were terrible, we arrived at lunch time and the restaurant was in a mess, food all over the floor, everything cold. The resort is tired, in desperate need of some money being spent to smarten it up, The beach bar is expensive, 3 euros for an ice cream is way too much. The food was ok, although more care could be taken with keeping the food area clean and serving spoons could be cleaned every now and again to stop all the old cold food clogging them up. Our room was nice and had recently been upgraded, although there was still mould in the shower. The water pressure is a huge issue we had reports of guests staying on floor 2 and floor 3 having little or no water at all. What is great about this place is the staff, who were fun, hard working and delightful with the children. Please Mark Warner spend some of that money you are earning on your resorts, we want to come back but do not think we are getting great value for money.

I loved San Lucianu and cannot rate the resort highly enough. It had everything we needed as a family of four and more, Nothing was too much of a problem for the helpful and friendly staff. As novice sailors, the watersports team gave us a great introduction into sailing and windsurfing - and our young daughters even got to sail in a boat. We found the childcare to be excellent. The kids club was fun and friendly and in the evening, we were able to enjoy adult time and have lovely meals, whilst the children were in the creche watching a Disney movie. Our rooms - we had interconnecting rooms facing the sea - were of a fantastic standard and were in a quiet part of the hotel. We had such a great holiday and couldn't recommend this hotel enough.

Wow this was a relaxing but stimulating holiday. Short Flight and Transfer, Luggage taken to rooms. Good information on daily activities - we did sailing, windsurfing, biking, volleyball and tennis. The hotel gardens are green with shaded areas and you do not sit on top of each other, The beach bar is a superb central point. Staff were all attentive and particularly enjoyed the al fresco meal times. We preferred to eat earlier at 7.15 when the restaurant was less busy. There was a mixture of families with young children, older families and couples who all were enjoying the holiday. Our seventeen year old son has requested a return trip instead of a party to celebrate his 18th. Large TV screen in lounge enjoyed watching Wimbledon.

This was a fab holiday! went last year with my friend and their parents, all of us already sail and take part in a number of water sports, so we found this amazing! the staff were lovely both in the hotel and out on the front. If any of us had any questions they quickly answered them! the night time entertainment was great and allowed you to mingle and get to know people. The races were so good and fun, with a great deal of competitiveness in them. I was successful enough to win one, and then come second in the other two rounds. I found the final presentation of awards at the end of the week a lovely way to finalise and celebrate the holiday. The rooms were fine with a lovely view and air con fro when it got hot-which it most certainly did! There was about a 15-20 minute walk into the town which was lovely and hot, with a few little shops, arcade, supermarket and other places. There were always activities going on which anyone was welcome in. I shall be most definately coming back here again, if not for a holiday then to work here for a summer or two!

Our room looked a little tired, but had an incredible mountain view. The hotel's facilities and activities were great, especially the free learn to sailing clinics. The reception staff were very helpful with great knowledge of the Island.
