Could not fault anything from the time we checked in up to our departure . All the staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms and the hotel were spotless. Excellent breakfast served on the terrace. One minor point my wife commented on was she didn't like the hairdryer much. But that was all. We had a fantastic stay.

This hotel was beautiful. And it's location perfect. I was nervous because some of the reviews I read were not favorable but Hotel Ilio exceeded our expectations and for that reason I felt the need to write. It was lovely, clean and friendly.

No one who books a seaside boutique hotel for 6 nights expects to be placed in a room looking out on a wall and in fact I wouldn't want that anywhere anytime at any price. So we left after one night and the owner didn't even have the courtesy to ask me what the problem was or offer any recompense.... More

Thank you for give me a reason to explain to all the Tripadvisor- people , that our Boutique Hotel is not classified “sea-side-hotel” , honestly you won’t read it nowhere on our web site, except for our Suite , that is at 10 meters from the beach.

We stayed here for 4 nights in a Mediterranean room. We arranged the taxi from the port through the hotel for 68 euros but the taxi driver tried to charge us the meter fare of 78 euros when we arrived, however as I had a printout of the cost he begrudgingly accepted. We were offered a drink on the terrace... More

This was a real let down. On a 3-week tour of Tuscany for our honeymoon, we excitedly booked this 'boutique' hotel as our luxury stay. It was anything but luxury or boutique. Overpriced comes to mind - staying in a Tuscan room felt like staying in a luxury dorm room - during the night and early morning you can hear... More

The rooms were particularly clean and comfortable. AC and ceiling fan...fabulous crispy ironed sheets and a fantastic crew of employees. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was perfect!!! The rooms had ample space for storing all the luggage and racks were provided to dry towels and bathing suits...just perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Boutique Hotel Ilio (only 20 rooms in a familiar atmosphere) is set in the midst of a magnificent green landscape, the ideal place for a relaxing holiday where the sea is "really" just outside your door - ideal for snorkeling, diving and kayaking. The mountains that surround the gulf of Cape Sant'Andrea offer the possibility to go hiking, mountain biking, and are of great botanical interest. We have prepared ourselves to deal with the summer season with a new holiday philosophy, choosing to accompany our guests in discovering the best of local cuisine on Elba, personally selecting and testing in a guidebook - Maurizio Testa's HI GUIDE - the best of catering on Elba . From 8:00 to 23:00, the Hi Bar is open to guests, with a selection of Tuscan wines, beverages, coffee bar and excellent aperitifs. ... more   less
