Second time for us , this time we went with my son, wife and his children. Great place to unwind, from the initial registration to signing out the staff were great. Fantastic food all day with a great bar to sit in or on the veranda while waiting for dinner. Looking forward to next year
Charming up-market place to stay with private beach. Spacious and airy rooms. Well equipped. Good restaurant. Very helpful staff. A 20 minute / Euro 25 taxi ride from town - some eating places a bit closer.
Located on a pristine beach with a beautiful view of the lovely city of Portoferraio, the unique setting of this hotel will simply take your breath away. We particularly appreciated the friendliness of every staff member and the great food. If you are looking for authenticity, this hide-out in nature provides all you need away from fluff and bustling tourist crowds. Some of the furnishings may be outdated, but they certainly add to the irresistible charm of this venue.
Location: private, relaxing and beautiful. Service: kind, quick and international. The villa, the room and the views astonishing. The food and wine delicious and great advice of the sommelier. More than enough facilities. Possible and recommendable to rent a scooter through the reception and scout the island (don't forget your towel and snorkel gear). We spend our honeymoon here and had the most romantic time ever. We would definetely recommend staying at Villa Ottone.
First of all, just want to mention that the staff and the main restaurant is great. However: 1) the room is the smallest I have ever stayed in for a five star hotel, and the bed feels like molten rock 2) the room is just so incredibly poorly isolated. I can literally hear my neighbouring rooms’ conversation, and the staff’s hallway conversations turn into nice early morning wake up calls 3) its just overpriced compared to the quality This place deserves better and some hefty investment
After a great stay in 2020 this vacation in Villa Ottone was perfect from the beginning with the direct booking and the reservation of 2 connected rooms. We enjoyed the above average breakfast and lunch served by a great team, getting very professional support for all major or minor requests (e.g. reservations in restaurants, or additional housekeeping) and the atmosphere of a heritage house, not being a facility in an international group of hotels. Of course the building shows a little bit of "patina", but this didn't disturb us at all. The management and the team are phantastic!
Coming to the end of our 7th year here. The hotel never disappoints. The staff are lovely and the reception gets better each year. A lovely gift in our room on arrival with a Happy Anniversary note. The housekeeping is immaculate and there is a wide range of room styles. The grounds are lovely, and I think that this year the garden staff have worked extra hard. The restaurant food, wine and service are exactly what you would expect from a five star hotel, but with the relaxed friendliness of a B&B. The Ottone, however, has one attribute which few others have - an absolutely magical setting, overlooking the bay, and facing directly into the setting sun. Unforgettable photographs and memories.
Ottone is a terrible run down hotel. It is not a 5 or even 4 star hotel. The rooms are dirty and old, there is a strong smell of human excrement in the restaurant and the beach area is very sad and badly kept. We booked 4 nights, but only stayed one night. I emailed the hotel asking for the refund on the remaining 3 nights, but they never replied to my message. I would strongly advise others not to stay at this hotel. It won’t be a pleasant experience, and they are likely to end up disappointed especially if flying from another country.
Absolutely scam hotel, booked a 4 nights holiday and regreat dearly. Room is a joke, as per my pictures, Extremelly dirty, spider web, air con unit looked dirty, bathroom old and breaking down. On the way to the beach from the cottage there is a extreme faul smell of sewage. The beach is a peppled little stretch and is extremelly littered with all sort of plastics and rubbish in general. The beach bar is non-existent. We dinned over the smell of sewage in the main restaurant and listening to tacky wedding music as they rented the front area of the hotel and the bar to outside guests for a wedding. The night ended up with italians singing elton john. Luckily we do not have a financial problem and have left the next morning first hour. I can imagine how much more damage this hotel would have inflicted on us had we stayed. I was the right decision to leave, i will be requesting my money back from tomorrow as i did not have the time to do so before.…
I arrived I saw that nothing was as if he saw! Old room! All in bad taste! Horrible faucet! Clean 0, horrible beach! Bad beach bar! Perfect restaurant! Then the old pool, always dirty! Bad organization! I believe in exchange needs, in general!
