I traveled with my husband in early september for our honeymoon. Its a very nice hotel but we felt it was a better place for families with young children or older couples. We were probably the youngest couple(26 yo) without kids by at least 20 years while we were there. As others have noted- any purchases there can become very... More

Very good! Amazing hotel and island! Enjoyed it very much! Friendly and helpfull staff. Nice food! Sliced chateaubriand at the table at diner ☺️. Only have one down point for this hotel and that's why I gave it 4 stars, tiny flies around the fruit at breakfast (this is a no go for a 5 star hotel). You should consider... More

We LOVED this hotel. I think the guests who give it a poor review drink and eat on the property which will get very expensive. This hotel is on one of the nicest beaches on Elba - one of the few beaches that has sand instead of stones. The water is clear and beautiful. You're assigned chairs based on your... More

I'll start with the positives - the service is great, food is brought out really quickly, everyone is really helpful. The hotel is located in the beautiful Biodino bay, the water is amazingly clear and it gets the sun pretty much all day long. It's only 15 minutes from Portoferraio. The room service is great - rooms cleaned morning and... More

Beautiful location with amazing views. Lovely beach which is perfect for kids. Great facilities. Fantastic food especially the pastas. Very friendly staff who return year after year. Slightly old fashioned bedrooms. Overall a little gem of a place.

We stayed at hotel hermitage in July 2016; our first time here and will definitely return. With 2 small kids the family room worked well and the facilities are excellent. Pools, beach with allocated beds and umbrellas, fantastic dining options and incredibly friendly staff. Mostly Italian clientele and some German; very few British which we loved, it was like holidaying... More

We came back to Hotel Hermitage for the fifth time this summer. As always we had an amazing stay. Wonderful location, high level of service and very child friendly. The beach with its turqoise clear water is stunning, but should you ever tire of the beatiful sea-view you can go in the salt-water pool and grab a drink from the... More

Some people have complained that it's not luxury. I disagree. It is not your usual swish 5 star hotel because it is built in the hillside and gives a rustic feel, but that's what is lively about it. Staff are lovely and the food is great . Kids love it.
