My husband and I traveled to Elba Island for our honeymoon. After leaving our first hotel because of how small a space they provided to us, we traveled to Hotel Belmare based on the Trip Advisor recommendations. Upon arriving, however, we were less than thrilled with the state of the hotel. While the room itself was clean and had all the necessary amenities, we were not sure how it was rated the #1 hotel in the area. We stayed for a night before traveling down the road to find a more comfortable, updated hotel. We found the double size bed to be two twin beds pushed together on a larger frame with a larger sheet. The room was simple, with a single religious portrait hanging on the wall. The furniture looked as though it dated back to the 1970s and the room had no air conditioning or ceiling fan which resulted in a hot, stuffy evening. We ate breakfast there in the morning and the chef provided us a delicious local breakfast of eggs, fruits and yogurt. Overall, there was nothing particularly bad about our stay at the hotel, I would just say that compared with other hotels we went on to see in the area, I am just not sure that this one deserves its #1 rating.
Ask for a room with a seaview... since there are no fans in the room it may provide more of a breeze...

Thank you very much for the time spent to write your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed something and we will take account of your review to improve the hotel. Being a small hotel that is growing up in these years, we find difficult to invest a lot of money every year. Year by year we will change the forniture of all the rooms as we are doing and we will add them facilities in order to make them more comfortable for our costumers. Thank you very much for the visit. Best regards, the staff of the hotel.
