The hotels location is really great, the beach is just a few steps away from your room. There are plenty of sun loungers even in peak season so there is no need to get up early to reserve one! The food and service is unlike anything I've had before. The sunset at dinner time is stunning and makes a great... More

the rooms are spacious and well equipped but very noisy, You can hear almost everything happening in the neighbor-rooms. Staff is very friedly and the nice sandy beach right in front of the hotel. Food here is just great (best desserts I ever had)

Dear Mr Bram, thank you for your comment! We’re very glad that you enjoy the atmosphere of our hotel and it's a big pleasure to have loyal guests that appreciate our services which we continuously strive to improve. Sorry for the noisy room.

With its own private beach, outdoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and tennis court, this hotel is a 15 minute drive from Portoferraio. Rooms are spacious and air-conditioned (although this is not switched on until at least May, so if there is an early heatwave, windows have to be open all night). It is very quiet although the bedroom floors are tiled... More

I loved staying here and Elba itself! It was so beautiful and the images you see are exactly what it looks like - we had an amazing view from our balcony and watched the sun set :-) This is without doubt, the best bit! The beach is sandy and lovely (and private), the hotel whilst in need of a lick... More

We are happy to hear that you spent a nice holiday at our Hotel. May is a nice period to visit Elba due to the climate condition. We are in a central position of the Island at only 7 km from Portoferraio harbor where the ferry arrives. From our hotel you can easily reach every part of the island. Our... More

We booked this hotel after reading about it on Tripadvisor and we were definitely not disappointed. If you are looking for a hotel that is (almost) perfect, look no further. 1) Location: It is probably one of the best possible locations on all of Elba: quiet, green, with a sandy beach and beautiful views - not to forget the sunsets....

Rather stuck in the past, this hotel is not very stylish and there is no attention to detail - no floral displays, no free water in the rooms, basic toiletries, thin towels, no proper beach or poolside service. It does not compete with luxury hotels in other parts of the world, and has none of the little touches we now... More

My wife and I have just returned from 5 days at this beautiful hotel. I could go on and on about it, but I'll keep it brief for you, the potential guest . The location is stunning. If seclusion is your thing, as it is mine, this ticks every box. True, it's not easy to get to via public transport... More
