“Nice relaxing place but slightly expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

I have mixed feelings about this place. The location is superb since you are 50 meters from the beach. The residence is located amongst the pine trees that keep the air cool. It also has hotel amenities since they change your linen and towels and clean your room every day. In the mornings, someone comes by early to clean your table on the terrace so you can have breakfast outside. Most residences in Italy do not have dishwashers. This one does and that makes a difference. Most staff kind, especially the staff on the iselba beach. Bikes are available although you need to pay for them in the evening. Wifi is available for free. I however find the place too expensive in July-August for being a residence and the bathrooms need renovation. Make sure you get the rooms with a sea view on the ground floor. The rooms on the top floor are boiling and have small windows that do not make you enjoy the view. The restaurant on the beach is good although not cheap. You need to remember that in Elba you will need to move around according to the winds (coming from the south or the north). Iselba beach is nice when there's the wind coming from the north. I read a review complaining about the flights but my kids loved that! Seeing small planes land (only after 9 am and during the day only) was super entertaining for them. Unfortunately there are no other play areas for kids.

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family
