“Friendly staff but.. ”
Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

The room was a little dirty and very cold. The bed was very hard. The bathroom was very humid and even more dirty (for example several spiderwebs). The water tastes really bad, don't drink it!
The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially in the restaurant. Good breakfast.
Nice and clean pool and amazing view from the hotel.

Stayed May 2014, traveled as a couple

We booked hotel Capo di Stella from4-8 August 2012, but left after 1 night. This outdated hotel is not worth it's 3 stars. The price (we paid 80EUR/person/night) is far too high for the very small and old rooms with malfunctioning sanitary (leaking and rusty).
The only good thing about the hotel is a splendid view on the sea and underlying bay from the restaurant (and apparently from some of the more expensive rooms), however we received a table in a dark room at the back of the restaurant without any view.
If you go to Elba, choose the other side of the island around Portoferraio or the national park, where you will find more peace and nature instead of campings and disco's.

We visited Hotel Capo di Stella in July, after booking it online in a rush. It said it was a 4star, but when we got there it was actually a 3 star, and that was pushing it a bit. Positives first-it has a beautiful view, but everything else put a dampener on that.

We paid €110 per night, our room just barely contained our bed, bags and ourselves. The shower was not inclosed and water got everywhere, the towels were like tea cloths. The balcony was only half a foot wide, so we couldn't sit out and enjoy the famous view on our balcony-which we paid extra money for. Nobody spoke English-I know that's not their problem, but when they shout at you in the restaurant it's very confusing.
Don't get me started about breakfast, stale rolls and ham. One day they had cheese and one type of pastry. Coffee was nice, juice was saccharine.
The pool looks great in the picture, but it's way smaller in real life. To get to the beaches or other restaurants you have to walk down a vertical gravelly path-and it's torture-especially coming back up in the dark, as they have no lighting and it's quite scary.
The receptionist accused me of stealing my credit card upon arrival-after dragging our suitcases up the 600m path (not 350m as advertised)
It also advertises wifi, but she said they didn't have any internet. Eventually she said they did have internet but she would check with the director if we could use it. She never came back to us.

On our last day, my boyfriend queried the cost of a taxi or bus times to the port to go home. She said €30 for a taxi or €2 for the bus, both leaving at 2.50 when he went to tell her he didn't need a taxi in that case she started screaming that the taxi would be there in 5 minutes and we had to go as we had booked it. Psychotic really, we did take the taxi and it was only €20. We just wanted the fastest way out of there.
Oh and there was no lighting outside our door, the key was really big and hard to open the door in the dark. The bed was a foam fold out bed and we are both really tall and had back ache for that time.

Just a quick note re: Lacona Beach, it's a real Italian holiday destination, nobody had English and we did enjoy ourselves outside of the hotel. There is a lovely restaurant at the foot of the hill going up to Capo di Stela, and the chef was really friendly, as were the waitresses. And the beaches were beautiful.
