“Dirty, noisy ... Don't go !!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

Don't deserve 3 stars at all: this is a 1 star plus. Staff welcome me by saying that my room was not booked and that I had to find another hotel before changing mind but without explaination. The room is just horrible: invasion of ant , everywhere including the cupboard. Very noisy: I could hear people speaking, brushing their teeth, kids crying ... As soon as someone's goes to the bathroom in 1 roo, everyone is awake in all the room of the floor. Breakfast starts only at 8am and dinner at 8pm... Really to Late When you want to leave early for a nice walk.
The beach is not far and is pretty nice.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Procchio is in a very nice area since it is not far from the main city (where the ferry is) but in a beautiful gulf. And the hotel is just 500 mt away from the seaside, where you have both beach club and free beach.
What I really liked at Brigantino was the service. Courtesy of the staff is 5 star and really makes a difference, after a couple of days only you feel like part of a "family" and they'll all do their best to meet your requirements.
The other big pluls is the food. Buffet lunch is simply amazing with an embarassment of richness to chose from every day. Same for dinner, everything was from good to excellent .
Rooms are ok, basic and very clean (which is all I need), nothing fancy. Samme applies for the swimming pool. The other big plus is the small "playfield for babies", where you have table tennis, swing, slide, etc. so that kids can play.

Strongly recommended for families

If your touring Elba this is a good place to start and suitable for a few days.Has its own pool and close to the beach.We went with B&B but seem to have very good value for Half Board.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2009

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days. This is a hotel, a 2 minute walk from the beach of Procchio (Campo all'aia). The rooms are clean, not too small and practical. Ours featured the smallest TV we have ever seen, with solely italian channels, which is normal since practically 99% of the tourists we have seen are from Italy. In the Brigantino, it was mostly italian families with kids. As mentioned in the title, the hotel is absolutely clean, has several common rooms which are nice, and the food is really good (nothing fancy but tasty). The personnel didn't go out of its way to help us, but answered every inquiry. The biggest problem was that it all felt somewhat lifeless. we have talked long about it, we can't find any reason for it nor can we describe it better. We didn't have air conditioning, but it is hardly necessary. Maybe some nights we got a bit hot, but the hotel is in shade all day, and Elba enjoys a moderate temparature. The biggest problem was that there was no internet.
