We've been at hotel Biodola end of june 2013 after a trip through tuscany. We were lucky and had great weather almost all two weeks. Therefore we really could enjoy the excellent beach. It is extraordinary clean and the water is dark blue as it should be. Almost all days exclusive yachts came to enjoy the beach as well which... More

I found Hotel Biodola through CharmingTuscany.com. My wife and I have been here for the last 4 days and have found a comfortable and relaxing rhythm. Every member of the staff here is exceptionally polite and well trained in customer service. Presently the hotel is mostly booked with Italian couples and families and it seems they have been coming for... More

My wife and I have just returned from 5 days at this beautiful hotel. I could go on and on about it, but I'll keep it brief for you, the potential guest . The location is stunning. If seclusion is your thing, as it is mine, this ticks every box. True, it's not easy to get to via public transport... More

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
