A fabulous 3 night stay which felt like more than a week of relaxation and recharge. Amazing hotel facilities, staff and setting - am already planning a return trip. Kids loved the kids club and pedalo and water sports. All loved the food. Family Bedrooms were very comfortable and beautifully appointed and wonderful views from our room. It truly was... More

There are a lot of accommodation options on Elba and I spent some time doing research to find the right one. There are all sorts of hazards; crowded bays, poor quality hotels, '4star' hotels which don't make the mark, run down hotels that still maintain good stars. There are plenty of signs of potentially disappointing stays on the island -... More

We visited the Hotel Hermitage in the middle of June 2014 at the end of our two month bike tour of Abruzzo, Umbria and Toscana. It is our usual practice at the end of our numerous bike tours in France and Italy to 'award' ourselfs with such absolute luxury and laziness. The Heritage did not disappoint us! The Hermitage is...

Stayed in July for one week. Good location on the beach. No hassle over sun beds as they are reserved for guests. Rooms are typical Tuscan style. not the most luxurious but reasonably well appointed. food in hotel was fantastic. If you like a post dinner walk, then the options here are a bit limited.

We stayed one night as a family with 3 kids. The location is stunning and the friendliness of the staff is excellent. We really enjoyed the beach. The rooms and the whole property is a bit aging and could be better maintained but again the location and view compensate. What really put me off was the fact that I found... More

Hotel Hermitage simply is what we always looked for: the perfect beach resort for a happy family! Everybody is very friendly and wants to make your stay as unforgettable as possible. Location is perfect, food amazing! The only thing which could be better is the wifi, but then again, who really needs that at the beach?

The setting is truly stunning. Amazing views across the bay. Beautifully old fashioned in many ways - they reserve the same sun loungers and the same table for dinner everyday. Really charming and helpful staff. We stayed with three of our children - aged 5, 9 and 10 months. They all loved it. Helped largely by booking through "powder byrne"... More

We stayed at the Hotel Hermitage for a couple of nights as it was our friend's wedding location. We had a preferential rate as most of the hotel was occupied by the wedding's guests. The setting, just as the pictures show, is fantastic. Nice little private beach, swimming pools, Jacuzzi, tennis, golf course etc. The outside of the premises is... More
