The whole ambience of this hotel is wonderful! The views, the rooms, the food and dining experience were all first class. We were only here for one night after a weeks stay at the other side of the island and on our way back to the ferry. If we had been staying longer, I would certainly say that a pool... More

This hotel is in a lovely peaceful position overlooking Portoferraio. Although about 15 mins from the town center, it is still quite central with Portoazzuro and Capoliveri only 15-20mins away. We hired scooters while we were in Elba and we could reach most of the beaches in under an hour. In fact, there are some lovely and very private beaches... More

We received a call from a lovely woman from the hotel on the first nighof our trip and we were horrified when we realised our mistake. We agreed of course to pay for this first night in full. She then explained that she... More

A friend and I stayed at Santo Stefano for 5 days in April and loved every minute of our stay. Not only were the grounds and views beautiful, but the dinners were wonderful. We ate there every night and had such a variety of well-prepared dishes. The owners and staff were so inviting and treated us like guests in their... More

We spend here 5 days. On the positives: Very nice location with a great view towards Portoferraio. Food is good: breakfast has enough choices and is of excellent quality, dinner is great and very affordably priced with Euro 15. Set-up of rooms is nice depending on which one you are allocated to. We had a room with view to Porteferraio... More

We spent only 3 days here but I wish we'd had more time.. Santo Stefano was recommended by friends and we were so happy to discover this beautiful place-if we go back to Elba, we will definitely book this hotel and nothing else! The spot is amazing, in the middle of Portoferraio, surrounded by nature.. The view is great, you... More
