I stayed here in May 2013 with my two sisters... This was by far the best value hotel in our month long Italian trip. The hotel was clean,comfortable,great location right on the water ( as was its restaurant and breakfast room ) and nice pool. We had a car so the 5 minute drive into town was not inconvenient.i will... More

If you like to relax a few days on a little private beach with the most beautiful view, this is the place to be!!! The pics of the view are real!!!! Rooms are a little outdated, but ok. Airco was out of order. The hotel is 7 km from portoferraio. The restaurant is good for breakfast (average) Make sure you... More

This hotel offers a quiet, peaceful location that would appeal to anyone not seeking shops, bars, clubs etc. For these you need to travel by car. The rooms are simple but comfortable, the pool sufficient and the location beautiful. It is the location that was its main attraction to me. The only option, other than to travel, for eating is...

I have just spent several days at the Hotel Mare. What a wonderful experience. I felt as if I was staying with family and friends. The position of the Hotel is wonderful, overlooking the Magnificent Portoferraio town. The restuarant is too in an ideal setting just on the seafront . The food was delicious and I had half board and... More

We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights last week and it was a lovely relaxing few days. Getting to the hotel was a little difficult with there not being many buses leaving either the water taxi (which had finished before we arrived) or a taxi which we ended up taking which was 25 euros. Once we arrived at the... More

We stayed at Hotel Mare for four nights in June, 2012. On arrival by water-taxi, I was surprised to find that the village of Magazzini in which the hotel is located essentially consists of the hotel, the hotel restaurant, the hotel shop and a couple of houses. As such, if you are without a mode of transport, as we were,... More

We stayed in one of the rooms with a sea view, and the sea view across the bay to Portoferraio with its buildings, lighthouse and the to and fro of passenger ferries is really worth it. Food in the pleasant restaurant is simple and very good. Breakfast is more than adequate. If you want a beach, then the one at... More

We had four nights here, the first night in a room overlooking the car park which was perfectly adequate; for the other three nights we were in a larger room, recently renovated and with a large terrace overlooking the sea. As noted by another reviewer, it is worth trying for a room with a sea-view. The restaurant, where we had... More

Nice little hotel a short drive away from Portoferraio (you can not walk from the ferries). Rooms were adequate, pool is nice with short hours. While the beach is private, it is rocky, so bring shoes you can wear in the water. Food at the restaurant is decent and affordable. Check out the water taxi service (very limited hours) for... More

The hotel is situated in Magazzini, a tiny village near Portoferraio. The hotel itself is situated next to a tiny square housing their restaurant and a shop/bar. The square also has an office which has a boat dive operator. All very quaint and with the shore right in front of you. All this is even more pretty as when we... More
