This is a truly amazing property and location. You are right on the beach with lots of room and several pools. It is a resort which has everything you don't need to leave. That said it remains staunchly Italian, staying true to black tie service rather than casual American style. The food is fantastic, great and varied quality with a... More

I recently attended my friends' wedding here and was struck by the absolute beauty of the area around Hotel Hermitage. A sandy (yes, sand!) beach that is well maintained, beautiful blue water, and perfect open skies. If they'd let me build a house right next to the Hermitage, I would. The hotel itself is a very nice place to stay... More

We had a lovely stay at the Hotel Hermitage in the last week of May with our two preschool children. The family suites are very well laid out with a large room at the front for the grown ups leading to a decent sized terrace, and the kids room and bathroom at the back. Only improvement would be to add... More

We stayed in the hotel for a week during my husband's conference. Great location and easy access from Portoferraio. We had a huge room, with little terrasse and a sea view over Biodola lagoon. The room had double sink bathroom with a bath. Unfortunately, the bathroom was very humid and after two people having a shower, it felt like a... More

A wonderful place to end our trip to Tuscany. The rooms are great - all have balconies overlooking Biadola bay and the wonderful beach. They are clean, have BATHS!, and have great chamberstaff to oversee your needs. The staff in the hotel are absolutely charming and also very caring. The restaurant is spectacular for evening meals, and the breakfast venue... More

My husband was in Rome for a conference so we made a vacation out of it after it was over. Three days in Tuscany and three on Elba, it was the perfect end to a great Italian experience! Due to the conference we were locked into dates, so being there off season was unavoidable. We gave up the warmth and... More

The property, restaurants and amenities were all very good but bravo, staff of Hotel Hermitage! Everyone from maintenance to management was absolutely friendly and professional, nothing forced or faked. Our New Jersey Italian language skills are not good, but everyone "helped us along" when needed. During our 2 week trek from Roma to Firenze and back, Hotel Hermitage was the... More

We stayed for 2 nights & had a fabulous time. The hotel is an little tired, but very comfortable. The staff is beyond excellent. The restaurant, food & staff are over the top!!!! We were there on the first day they opened for the season, so it was a little cold to enjoy the water. We did like being there... More

My wife and I stayed here during early May, 2015. This was the reason for all of the problems we encountered (of which there weren't many). Positives: Grounds are breathtaking. Pools are beautiful. Small outdoor chapel for Mass and Weddings (Idyllic). Five restaurants. Tons of activities. Rooms were spotless and nicely appointed. Negatives: Everything was closed except for the main... More

This resort has everything you want if you want a beach hotel and your going to spend time outside. The rooms are lovely and simple there is nothing over complicated. If you are expecting a room with a glass staircase and a small swimming pool you will be disappointed. But like what I want is a room were I sleep... More
