Spacious rooms along winding pathways set into the hillside overlooking a beautiful small bay with sandy beaches and clear sea. The hotel also has swimming pools and a jacuzzi all overlooking the sea.

We stayed there End August 2013 for one week. It was our fist trip to Elba. I think, it may be one of the best hotels on the island. The absolute highlight is the dinner at night with a wide selection and everything really cooked at its best. Second in my ranking is the kindness of all staff there, which... More

We keep returning and keep awarding the place top ranking. It is blisteringly expensive but the location is fabulous, the staff unchanged from year to year, charming, attentive and becoming slightly better year by year at English, perhaps reflecting the state of the domestic economy and a higher proportion of international guests. Changes are very few from year to year... More

Good hotel with a private beach, although I was not impressed by the food and sometime staff seemed to be unfriendly, anyway: much too expensive for what is offered. I think you can find much better value on the island.

We stayed for a week in early July. The hotel is beautifully located in a small bay with its own private sandy beach. We had a spacious and well-furnished double room with a large bathroom with bath and shower and a small terrace overlooking the hotel and the bay and beach. There is a choice of two restaurants by the... More

Breakfast overlooking the beach. Lunch on the beach. Dinner overlooking the beach. Sun and swimming in between. Nothing more needs to be said. Total relaxation, especially in September. From what we hear, would not want to be with the crowds in August.
