“Stunning location and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Our stay at Hotel da Giacomino was one of the big surprises of our Italian trip. Located right on the coast with a pool and tennis court, we were expecting a large hotel with little personal touches. On the contrary, we found there were only about 25 rooms and it was a family-run hotel, with Franco and Marinella always happy to cater for your every whim! The bedroom and bathroom were both large and our balcony was above the kitchen so we had delicious smells coming our way from about 5pm every day. We stayed half-board and the evening food, served at 8pm, was worth the wait! So many places to relax and sunbathe among the trees on the hotel grounds, but we took the short walk across to the Sant Andrea beach every day to lie on the sandy beach and swim in the crystal clear sea. If we were to change one thing about our trip, it would have been to hire a car because the taxi from Portoferraio to the hotel, while a beautiful journey, cost 70 euros.

This is my 1st visit at Hotel Da Giacomino and it definitely won't be my last. This family run hotel is the best in Sant"andrea with great service and food. The Location is absolutely breath taking. Franco and Marinella were amazing and really made us feel like part of the family. Tanti Grazie!!!

Forza Roma!

It's our second visit to this hotel. Location is exceptionally beautiful, the Hotel is perfectly located with swimming pool, private park going directly down to sea. Nice rooms with scenic view.
Family owned and managed, very customer conscious. Really good food with nice presentation and attention to menu in a wonderful sunset & sea looking restaurant.

Room Tip: you cannot do wrong...

Family run hotel with the best location on the north/west coast. The highlight of the hotel are the gardens and hil-top/coastal location - as well as having a sea water-filled pool and tennis court. The rooms and home-cooked Italian food (we full-boarded) are as you'd expect (good) and no better or worse than the other hotels in Sant Andrea (which we have stayed at, this is the best in our opinion). Some of the other reviews here seem to expect haute cuisine & 5 star luxury - but this is a seaside hotel.

Family-owned hotel, in a wonderful position overlooking Sant'Andrea's bay.
Sea water swimming pool-very nice if jellyfishes in the sea, direct access to the sea (rocks). Small quite crowded beach at 5 minutes walking. Beautiful terraces under the trees with many sunloungers.
Many families with small children, despite this still relaxing.
Reserve a room with sea view, the rooms on the back of the main building have more noise.
Good food with a choice among three different “primi”, three “secondi” and several desserts/cheeses; having a picky eater in the family I really appreciated the effort of the management in preparing something for her.
We have been coming for 4 years and we always look forward to this vacation.

If you look for a beautiful place, professionally and family run, easy going, with romantic sunsets, close to a small beach with clear water, this is the place you have to go to. Rooms are clean, food is good, the swimming pool is inviting. It is the perfect place to relax after a busy period or a busy trip. Finally you will read the book that was on the side table for a while.
Be aware of this: Sant'Andrea is 45 minutes driving from Portoferraio and 20 minutes from Marciana Marina, a cool place with restaurants and bars.
