Me and my family stayed with Villa Ombrosa twice over the last two weeks. The staff are friendly, the rooms clean and nice (we had a room with a view) and you can hear the ocean all night long. The rates are great, location perfect and your stay includes use of one of the best beaches on Elba which is... More

We stayed here just one night and, after driving around the island the next day, went back to the mainland because virtually all tourist facilities on the island were closed. Contrary to what some other reviewers have said, the manageress spoke good english and one of the 2 very friendly ladies in the restaurant also spoke passably good. The design... More

We have just stayed here for a week and find it hard to understand why so many reviewers rate it as excellent. I agree with “Irene_85” (review 08.05.14) that it’s not a great hotel. Sure, the location is excellent, it’s very quiet at night and the view from our balcony was very nice so we enjoyed sitting out there, watching... More

We stayed here for five nights 20th to 25th september 2014.......wish we had booked longer stay. It was only an easy ten minute walk on the level from the ferry terminal and bus station, and ten minutes walk from the old town for strolling and evening meals, yet on a quiet small road. Location was superb. Hotel was very welcoming... More

View from our room is exceptional. You definitely want a sea view. The staff service was superb - despite a language difference, they all had basic English and tried their best to bridge the gap. The two meals a day was great - food was basic but homemade quality. And plenty if quantity with 3 courses at each meal. Very... More

We were part of the 200th Anniversary Dance Party celebrating Napoleon's first month on the island of Elba - and spent 4 lovely days touring the island, eating in a variety of different restaurants - and dancing (English Country aka French Court Style). The Hotel Villa Ombrosa was our base of operations - we scored room 115 - which was... More

Tucked off the main road but close to the ferry terminal, you will find a small gem of a hotel! It's worth finding if you don't have a vehicle or are only on the Island for a short stay. We were on bikes, and really appreciated both the location and how lovely the hotel was. The rooms are comfortable and... More

Elba Island is a beautiful place, with plenty of tourist facilities, but it's pretty hard to find a (good) place to stay in winter. This hotel is one of the few which are opened all the year and it is a good place to stay because it's very close to Portoferraio ferry terminal, it has private parking and a beautiful... More

Elba Island, Napolean, the true Italian feel, Portoferraio town (the island's capital), great views and a majestic hotel - what more could we ask for having travelled all the way from Australia to this small island off the Ligurian coast of Italy. And the Villa Ombrosia in such a wonderful setting with gorgeous views over the sea, beach and little... More
