We stayed here for 5 nights and it was perfect. The grounds are beautiful, it's very quiet and results in instant relaxation. If you like smaller hotels with friendly staff then Cernia will be great for you, if you want a 5 star huge hotel with no character then don't come here! Breakfast was ample. The location on the island... More

First I have to say that it took me long to write the review because of a strange feeling about the hotel. In fact it has been difficult to choose a location or and the hotel on the Isola d Elba. Why ? Because of the very high prices in August and also because there is a lot of offers... More

We stumbled across this restaurant with our children. The food was dreadful, the parmesan seemed to be sawdust style pre-grated, the veg was undercooked, unseasoned, the gnocci was soft and slimey, the hummous was warm and tasted what I imagine Heinz lentil soup to taste like, the fish was not fresh and I have no idea at all why this...

We just can't say enough good things about this place. We kinda stumbled across this hotel in our travels of Italy. And are so happy we found this spa like boutique hotel. The hotel and staff really seems to be striving for excellence in everything they do here. The decor and setting just can't be beat. The pool and garden... More

Stayed here with a friend as part of my birthday celebration and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The setting is gorgeous and the beach is close by, where there is also access to a path around the rocks. I liked that the area was quiet - it felt like a wonderful secret! We enjoyed sitting in the common... More

This place is just fantastic, individual rooms with nice balconies, excellent pool embedded in the controlled wilderness of their garden, fantastic food and an outstanding wine selection. Super friendly staff and owner with a good feeling for customers and what they want. Looking at this place it's just a shame that The Cernia Isola Botanica is with their 3 stars... More

We stayed the first week in May. Peace and quiet, perfect for a retired couple like us. Very friendly and efficient staff, lovely gardens, good food and wine. Our room was quite basic but spotlessly clean and more than adequate. Lovely weather. Elba is a beautiful island. Perfect!

After being frustrated with the Hotel Oleandro (see seperate review) we discovered the Hotel Cernia, moved there and it turned out to be our lifesaver. We spend 4 nights with half board at this hotel in Sant'Andrea in a lovely room with ocean view. The interior of the hotel is charming, nice cosy country style furniture, various terraces you can...
