“Skip the restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Fabulous location if you get a room overlooking the sea, as we did. Two gripes.

The advertised 'private beach' gives the impression that it will be for hotel guests only and therefore quiet. It is charming, but very busy indeed, and costs 25 euros.

The restaurant is ridiculously expensive - a small scoop of ice cream comes in a ten euros. And the main courses arrive with practically no vegetables or salad, nor are there any on the menu as extras, so you assume they'll come automatically, especially at those prices. Ther is something a bit depressing about eating a chunk of grilled tuna with nothing to vary the taste or texture.

And if you want to eat out it's about fifteen minutes to drive to Porto San Stephano, and then it's very hard to park.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

As reviewed by literally everybody here the location itself is worth a visit. The views to Giglio are magnificient and the sunset couldnt be better on earth. The hotel is situated on a cliff top in a private area called Calla Piccola roughly 800m to the beach (be prepared if you would like to walk). Both our rooms have been recently refurbished and are up to modern standards. All have stone floors and are functional in a rather slim way and have had fantastic views towards the beach club and the sea. Maid service is twice a day and cleanliness is very good. The area is normally very quite as long as there isnt a party in one of the private villas close by or a wedding in the hotel. The hotel restaurant is superb. Whilst it is not cheap, the value is excellent aswell as the choice. The wine list is "cheap" as in many good italian restaurants with a large selection of bottle in the 20-25 euro zone. I cant share some of the earlief comments who have described this as expensive. This is a high class italian kitchen and main courses are around 20-30 Euros (we should not make the mistake and compare this to any pizzeria). Whilst lunch and dinner are fabulous i must admit that breakfast is the opposite. Its served in a closed room without any view (i dont understand management why the dont use their magnificient terrace) and choice is very much limited. Some services like fresh orange juice are even charged in addition. On top the breakfast crew could sometimes be more friendly and helpful, which is also in strong contrast to the very friendly and helpful reception (always a smile on the face) and other areas. The pool is small but nice even if the lifeguard was sometimes to restrictive for the kids and stopped any fun activity like jumping (even when there is nobody in or around the pool area). So overall its a nice place with some minor mistakes which we would definitly recommend also with children.

Room Tip: Deluxe Double have all fantastic views and seem all to be recently refurbished

We stayed 8 nights. Good service, excellent hotel. Food's a little chefy. I'ts the location what does it.
Not enough water pressure in the shower, but lucky to get any pressure at all due to the location.
We will be back.

If u want views, superb service, expensive bar and restaurant, lovely rooms, Infiniti pool and helpful staff, this is for u. Eating in is an experience if only because some courses were beautiful and creative, some very ordinary but all at an unrealistic costironically the wines were good value.

Unfortunately the breakfast was nothing special and in a room with no views or atmosphere

Equally to have wifi at a charge and only in and around reception considering the room cost was a little offensive.

To sit on your balcony with the views of the mountain and sea was something special

Most fantastic venue in Porto S Stefano.The staff was very helpful although the ladies in the reception less so.
The hotel is situated high on the mountains of the island with fantastic views on secluded beaches ,olive trees and sea pines.

This hotel was outrageously over priced. The room was only average and the food although, good was nothing special. The views were spectacular but I would not return. This was supposed to be a special stay. It was definitely a great disappiontment

We spent 3 days at this hotel and loved it - great location, food, service, would not hesitate to recommend.
No problem for us with wi fi in our room, hotel staff could not be more helpful or friendly. Food in the restaurant was delicious, although quite expensive, and when the weather is better it must be beautiful to eat al fresco there with such an amazing view.
Thank you
