I came again with my wife to Villa Ottone this month and were very happy with it. The location is great, 15 mn by car from Portoferraio, thus in a quiet countryside. The room although small (Nr 14), in the old villa, was nice with a beautiful view on Portoferraio, especially at sunset. The service very professional, the food good... More

Villa Ottone har everything you expect from a five star hotel. It is located in a beautiful park, the facilities are excellent, the service is impeccable, and the food is good (new menu every day!). The breakfast is extraordinary with and endless selection of ham, cheese, cereals, fruit, etc. For dinner the selection of antipasti is the best I have... More

Best Five Star Hotel in Island!! Excellent!!! It was amazing. Great size, beachfront views, yummy bathroom and goodies . A very relaxing resort with two pools and a very good spa. There are better beaches on the coast.

We found the hotel entrance, but did not see the sign for Reception and drove towards the Beach Cafe. We were sternly redirected by the Maître d'hôtel to the correct drive. After that incident, everything went as it should, until check-out. The front desk personnel were as helpful and attentive as one could wish. A Hotel Porter directed us and... More

Gorgeous location. Right by the beach with an incredible view. The rooms were okay. The furniture could be updated and the bathroom had some cracked tiles on the floor. We had a nice sitting porch and unfortunately we had no window so we had to keep the porch door open at night while we slept to get air in the... More

We agree with the other reviews, both good and bad. The location is quiet and beautiful and the beach is nice. Some staff were helpful and sincere while others were not and overall we found that the service was inconsistent. The food is good and the breakfast buffet has a good variety. While the natural setting is beautiful and the... More

The location... superb, facilty... beautiful but in need of some minor detail oriented TLC, service... pleasant, friendly, but a bit standoffish and aloof, food... lovely and very formal and old school,but excellent nonetheless. You will need a car as the hotel is quite out of the way. It has its' own beach but it pales in comparison to the beaches... More

Just back from 3 nights in VO. We live in Northern Italy, so I think our expectations are realistic. It is not a 5 star as claimed, but then neither is the price. So it does represent a good experience for the price - I'd say 3.5 stars, stellar location and as others have suggested, very good food. On the... More

We stayed for 2 nights in early September, in the Hotel building which is a more modern building located behind the old Villa. It's very well maintained and very clean; our room had a nice balcony with a partial view of the sea, through the lovely, almost tropical gardens. But it also had slightly down-at-heel plastic patio furniture-at odds with... More

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. It reminds one of being transported into the 1920's, 1930's- with the evening 5 course meals, waiters in white tuxedos, piano bar in the evenings. It was just a magical place. I wouldn't bother going to any of the other restaurants on the island, as we tried one night and... More
