We booked this gem via Secret Escapes and enjoyed 2 full weeks in this charming hotel with its huge surrounding garden. It's beautifully located in the bay overlooking the sea with a nice view on Portoferraio. Good selection for breakfast and a daily changing dinner menu from a good chef. All personnel is very friendly from reception to the restaurant... More

Villa Ottone was a beautiful hotel located only 15 minutes from Portofino, which is nice after a long day of traveling. The beach was very scenic and the water crystal clear. The food was absolutely delicious and the service remarkable. The price-fixe dinner included a starter, primi, secondi, salad buffet (cheeses, meats, additional appetizers, etc.), and a dessert buffet. The... More

We stayed for 4 days in this hotel at the end of our honeymoon and it was just lovely. We read some comments about it being dated and it couldn't be far from the truth. The hotel is beautifully decorated, the beach and sea is lovely and the restaurant serves amazing food! Breakfast was memorable with fresh homemade croissants, dozens... More

The only thing that matches the beauty of the property is the charm of its people. Warm, generous, and thoughtful in every way, the staff elevated our stay on Elba to heights we just were not expecting. (Giuseppe, I am officially addicted to Campagne wines now and it's your fault.) The grounds at Villa Ottone are impeccably kept. You almost... More

The hotel has an amazing view of the sea and a beautiful, well kept park. We went for an (expensive) room with a terrace overlooking the sea in the Villa part. The view was stunning and would have made for a wonderful stay, had there not been two wedding events right underneath our terrace. Impossible to sleep until 2 am.... More

Lovely hotel with wonderful views over Portoferraio old town. The villa is also a magnificent building just in front of the sea and the gardens are really nice and well kept. However the rooms in the hotel and in the cottage really need a strong renovation. Air conditioning system is extremely old, frequently does not work and it is supernoisy.... More

Amazing hotel by the sea! We were helped along the way prior to arrival, even with our ferry booking. It was clear the type of service we were to expect upon arrival. The reception we received was very warm. The room was spacious and comfortable! Welcome fruits in the room and a balcony, though no view. The bathroom had a... More

We spent 4 days at this wonderful place and loved every second of it. We upgraded to a sea view room and it was worth every money. The hotel is placed in the idyllic area, very quiet, perfect for couples. Plenty to do (tennis, pedalo). Worth recommending, we would most certainly go back!
