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

Well, it is the first time since our guests leave comments of their vacancy here on Tripadvisor , that husband and wife write everybody his own review about their stay.

Newly renovated and extended family owned small hotel nestled in beautifully groomed gardens. The rooms are stylish and functional. They convey tranquility and relaxation. Close to the beach. We had a wonderful time.

Decided to go to Elba for a day and drive about the island. The Ilio is in a small town at the far west of the Island and made sense for a half way stop.

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.

What I felt about Ilio: robbed. 175€ for what I have found expecting a real boutique hotel made very upset. I would have been very happy to pay this money if the reality was different. But it was my fault! Why: when I was booking I didn't ask size of the room or other details. I was too sold on... More

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
