We stayed for one week in May 2016. This is our second time at the hotel. Biodola Bay is beautiful. Our room was on the hill with seaview as requested. Daily room clean-up and evening turndown were perfect. The amenities are top notch. We used the pool, pool bar, beach, beach bar, boat rental, spa (couple massage), golf, Salute trail,... More

One week at Hotel Hermitage and the one word that describes the experince is excellent. The one thing I missed was sunbed on the terrace at our room. The rest was just great, the location in Biodola bay, the hotel facilities, the breakfast , the lunch and the fantastic dinner through the week. We have been visiting hotels around the... More

I stayed here with my husband as we worked at a wedding which was being celebrated right at the hotel as I was the photographer. The structure is beautiful and immersed in the lush green of the garden overlooking the beautiful sandy beach. They also have a pool and jacuzzi and a pool bar, which was fun. It was great... More

Beautiful property surrounded by grove-covered mountains with a wonderful sandy beach looking out onto a small bay. The cuisine at the various hotel restaurants was top notch. The Saturday dinner "soirees" are a thing to be experience, but be warned that there you are treated with truly copious amounts of varied, astonishingly beautifully presented, high quality and, therefore, irresistible food,...

We stayed in this hotel in September, 2015. The property is truly amazing. The grounds, and gardens are very well maintained, and manicured. The room was beautiful. The maid service was extremely attentive. Seemed like they changed your towels after every use. Our room was always kept spotless. We never saw them but we could tell that they kept checking...

Fantastic hotel in every way. Staff at desk helpful as we're all the staff. Excellent location . Would suggest worth paying extra for a sea view room but difficult to find fault . Food was excellent. The half board was good value . Beautiful bay. 5 swimming pools . Looking forward to returning.

We had a room quite high up in the property, which gave us all the peace and quiet we were looking for. Decor is a little dated, but the size of rooms and service more than makes up for this. Wifi is available everywhere on the property, including the beach. A named/personal set of beach loungers that were ours all... More

These are the guys who invented luxury stays on Elba. 60 years later, the hotel remains my reference on the island: not perfect, not grand, but really good to spend time in family. Well done, Hermitage!

This is a truly amazing property and location. You are right on the beach with lots of room and several pools. It is a resort which has everything you don't need to leave. That said it remains staunchly Italian, staying true to black tie service rather than casual American style. The food is fantastic, great and varied quality with a... More

I recently attended my friends' wedding here and was struck by the absolute beauty of the area around Hotel Hermitage. A sandy (yes, sand!) beach that is well maintained, beautiful blue water, and perfect open skies. If they'd let me build a house right next to the Hermitage, I would. The hotel itself is a very nice place to stay... More
