We stayed here for one night during our honeymoon. We stayed already in Sant'Andrea for three days and loved the village (nice small bay, few restaurants, clear oceanwater), but didn't liked the hotel (hotel ilio) too much, therefore we went for one night to gallo nero and we truly loved it. We were welcomed by a very friendly lady. We didn't speak much italian and she didn't speak much English, but we both tried and that was fun! also the waiter was very friendly. The hotel consist of little appartment buildings, all on one area. Our room, number 20, had a stunning view of the ocean/bay area. The room is clean, but small. The area has nice gardens, where they grow their own vegetables and a nice pool and sunbeds. There is also a jacuzzi with a nice sea view,however we didn't use that. It is a bit further away from the beach (5-10 min walk), however there is a small road which leads you directly. One downside: there were a lot of wasps, and my husband was stung. The breakfast was nice, with a lot of choices and we also had lunch which was nice as well. We will definetly come back to this hotel if we are coming back to elba.
