I've stayed at this hotel for a week. Isola d'Elba is beautiful, and this stay has only enhanced my experience. Very nice hotel, with great location. We stayed in a sea view room, the view was gorgeous, the room was comfortable and simply furnished. I must also mention the hotel's restaurant, really good. It is usually not easy to find... More

The hotel is ideally located and great value for money. The staff is very helpful, the two restaurants have a terrific chef with breakfast/lunch and dinner a la carte with buffet choice. The rooms are clean and pretty. The hotel has its own beach with sunbeds, umbrellas, a restaurant, and a bar. Included are some water sports; canoe and peddle-boat.

We wanted to stay as the year before at Hotel del Golfo, but as the hotel opened only in May we were asked if we would go to Biodola what we accepted without hesitation as it belongs to the same group. We are a family of four with two little children and enjoyed our stay at the Biodola as much... More

Perfect location, fantastic food! I have been here on two trips to Italy. It's rather expensive so after a few nights here head over to casa rosa and save some money

I would say that it is quite charming and very clean. The rooms are nicely decorated, comfortable and bathrooms are 'to american standards'. The food is quite disappointing generally- one night a week they serve a buffet which was wonderful, but the rest of the nights it was not worth the price. They do do a wonderful pre-dinner drinks on... More

A lovely hotel in a great setting. We didn’t plump for one of the sea-view rooms, as we booked late in the day, and while the rooms are not sumptuously furnished, they’re clean and comfortable and fitted our needs perfectly. We stayed for 5 nights on the half-board option and the food in the restaurant was of extremely high-quality. However,... More

Hotel Biodola is a beautiful hotel. The sandy beach was awesome and the water was clear as tap water!! The sunsets were amazing from the beach, the patio, and our room. As for the staff, I cannot praise the concierge Andrea Gentini enough. He was fantastic! He was always welcoming and helpful when assisting us with our travel and hotel... More
