Good points to this hotel:
Very friendly, helpful, accommodating staff.
Quite a good breakfast - variety of breads, jams, cheese and meat, fruit, coffee and tea.
Two pools, one inside for swimming laps, one outside for relaxing.
Towels available at the pool.
Good fitness room.
Nearby village is beautiful.
Very safe - there is always somebody at reception and they seemed to recognise their guests.
We had expected luxury from what we had seen online. The reality did not match the expectation - the decor is quite dated and the first impression of the actual hotel does not suggest luxury.
The beach was not far away, maybe a 7 minute walk, but it was a walk on quite a busy street. The beach is not privately owned by the hotel.
We had three rooms and three bathrooms - in two of the bathrooms, the toilet seats were broken.
We did water sports in the nearby town, which made our stay in Elba enjoyable, but the hotel was a place to sleep and have breakfast. If you can get a good deal on it, go for it as it does have some good points (particularly the staff) but do not expect luxury, as this is not what you will get!
