“Only visiting but would love to stay here - very beautiful and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2008

Although we didn't stay at this hotel (we were in a villa over the road) I can't rate the other reviews on the hotel rooms. But the place itself is fabulous, pretty well maintained and a great looking hotel with the open courtyard.

The food was amazing. Expensive, but amazing. And the proper 5-star service was evident as the waiters served impecably. The entertainment was also great while we ate, not too loud and very easy going. A GREAT experience.
During our time there the hotel was VERY quiet (the same for all over the island really), strange considering it was peak time. We sat in the courtyard restaurant and had the waiters and entertainment to outselves (7pm) with the birds singing in the trees. Amazing, and very romantic.

The receptionist was pleasant, she helped out with everything we needed from taxis to hirecars and spoke good English. Unfortunately her shift must have changed and her replacement wasn't so helpful explaining that she should not have booked a hire car for us as this was a service for 'guests only'. Well love, it was done, so be polite and deal with it :)

The golf course was very well maintained and looks great.

As mentioned previously there is a free bus service which takes you to the Atlantico shopping centre and serves the other hotels in the same chain, it runs every hour (apart from siesta time).

Unfortunately we were very dissapointed with our stay in November, and it was all of 4 hours before we checked out.

Dark, dark room with the ceiling coming in on top of us. Mould in the shower tray. No reception on the TV. scuffed furniture. The 'sea view' requested turned out to be a view of a giant palm tree. To actually see the sea, you would need to hang over your balcony with giant 5* binoculars.

The dining restaurant was closed but appeared dismal, some tables set, some not... giving the impression of total dissaray, resultant in a 'five star' depression. The golf grill bar had a very basic and largely unhealthy 2* menu.

The golf shop charges comparatively exorbitant prices and the golf course is unlikely to ever see a proessional putt its greens.

The staff.. well, the phrase ghostship springs to mind. Those staff we met were, on the whole, friendly but some reception personnel didn't quite grasp the concept of speedy check-ins.

Our check-out, in contrast was rapid (we did pay). Suffice to say that sparks could be seen coming from the rims of our tyres as we sped away with our bags.

Overall, not a five star, in our humble opinion.

  • Liked — The safe in the wardrobe.
  • Disliked — Dark, small room.

My husband and our two children stayed at Elba Palace for a week over new Year. Whilst it is an amazing looking hotel and very impressive on arrival there are hardly any staff. We arrived for New Years Eve - hotel was booked out. There were approx 60 people waiting to eat / drink in the bar after coming off golf course at approx 3-30 pm. One waiter was serving both food and drink. It was appalling. He seemed to be on duty 24.7. The staff were so worn out they could hardly smile. Our hearts went out to them. One two of the days we stayed there we left our suite at 9-00 am in the morning. When we returned at 4-00pm. the room still was not serviced. Towels arrived each night @ 9-00pm - children were asleep in bed. The minibar was never refilled only upon request. The hotel facilities are amazing. It is truly impressive. But unless this hotel places some staff there to look after guests it should be not remain rated as a five star. We will not go back. Caroline Jones. Ireland.
