We had a one week stay in mid September. The staff were wonderful and really helpful; nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel is only 15 mins drive from the port and nestles in the hillside with fabulous views of the bay and the coast. It is well positioned for travelling to all parts of the island but... More

2 week stay September 2013. The hotel is 15 minutes drive from Portoferraio and a similar distance from the beautiful Porto Azzuro. It is notably quiet and many of the rooms have a fine view of the bay and coastline. The staff make this place. Francesco, Viola and their daugher Barbara run the hotel with Barbara's partner Antonio, with Gian-Carlo... More

We absolutely loved our stay at this private hideaway. Nestled up on the hills, with a breath taking view of the Island. The staff and management here are so lovely and really make a personal effort to create lasting memories. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and the staff were able to upgrade our room which was such... More

I booked a week at this hotel through Secret Escapes. The web-site photographs looked good, and it had won an award this year. The reality was somewhat different. The hotel is way up in the hills, the rooms are pretty basic, with noisy, inefficient air conditioning, and full of mosquitos: we were bitten to death. The rooms are in different... More

hotel rates and stars should definitely be lower considering the renovations required at the property and services provided. there are too many hidden/undisclosed fees. if possible do not take the full board. the spa staff are great. could be a great hotel. probably good for corporate excursions.

When we first arrived rooms weren't ready - no problem, we are easy travellers. We were asked to wait in the bar and was served a complentary fruitpunch ( that non... More

We hope you feel better now. Conecerning your statements we can just quickly remind you that you booked the same morning through... More

Returning to Elba after 40 years we couldn't have stayed in a more perfect hotel than Relais delle Picchiaie we loved it! It is very well located to explore the island as it isn't far from villages and towns and you will need a car. The setting is stunning with beautiful views out to sea and over surrounding mountains, with... More

While we (wife, son, I) appreciated the location and service at the hotel, the room was not compatible with the four stars it claims: too small, particularly for the bathroom. Other than that, it is very well situated on the magnificent island of Elba.

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel this summer, and can not help but praise it! First and foremost, the staff in a class by itself in terms of helpfulness and friendliness. The surroundings are stunning and you never get tired of enjoying the view - that encompasses both sea and Elba's beautiful scenery. The restaurant is also an... More
