7 nights with the family; two rooms next to each other. First of all - this is a difficult place to do a report about. Could actually be anything between 2 and 4*. So why 4*? Ilio promotes itself as a 3* boutique hotel - which it is. Only 49 beds and not a part of a chain of hotels.... More

Nice hotel in a great place. The rooms are large and clean, bed of good quality. There is free wifi and air conditioned. You have to walk a few minutes to get to the beach and there is no swimming pool, quiet for couples or friends but maybe not good for families. Private parking which is good on this small... More

My wife and I were completely blown away by this gorgeous hotel in the quaint seaside town of St. Andrea. We were looking for a quiet spot by the beach that had access to both rock climbing and hiking...little did we know that we would find this gem that would offer so much more. The family-like staff was extraordinarily helpfull... More

We stayed at the ilio for the second time in September and have to say this was one of best holidays we have ever had. The ambience of the ilio means that you have no choice but to chill out and relax, with staff who make you feel that nothing is too much trouble. Though your every need is catered... More

We spent 4 nights at this boutique hotel in September, this corner of the island of Elba is beautiful and the time of year was perfect, still warm but not too crowded. The hotel is spread out in what I believe used to be the owner's family's property, renovated and thus no modern construction that goes up. The rooms are... More

We had a long weekend in this lovely hotel as a surprise - part of my big birthday celebrations. We were a group of 12 and everyone were really happy with the ambiance, quality of food and service. We were welcomed with a glass of Prosecco which never hurts! Whether you had a room with a sea view or garden... More

We truly enjoyed our stay in this fine hotel. We arrived very late the first night, but were greeted by the owner himself, who also helped us take the luggage to our room. We had a great room, with balcony facing the sea, and with access to a small private garden space. The breakfast was very good, with much more... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Boutique Hotel Ilio (only 20 rooms in a familiar atmosphere) is set in the midst of a magnificent green landscape, the ideal place for a relaxing holiday where the sea is "really" just outside your door - ideal for snorkeling, diving and kayaking. The mountains that surround the gulf of Cape Sant'Andrea offer the possibility to go hiking, mountain biking, and are of great botanical interest. At the Boutique Hotel, Ilio the chef, Giancarlo Pollidini, offers a dinner- menu featuring exquisite Elba and Mediterranean dishes, with the primary objective of making the most of the local and traditional cuisine. ... more   less
