Reviewed June 30, 2009

We stayed with our toddler for one week. Accommodation on the second floor was spacious and very clean with beautiful sea views across two bays. Only complaint: hard pillows. I would say you would definitely need a car here (we hired at Pisa airport and took the ferry from Piombino). Allow 1.5 hours driving from Pisa to Piombino. The ferry is quite expensive (approx. 120 euro return with car) for the one-hour crossing. I originally bought a return ticket in Piombino for 49 euro but the ticket office failed to tell me that this was only valid for return within three hours! But this is Italy after all. I had to pay another 72 euro for the return sailing. Be careful of the turn into the Mini Hotel from the public road - it's on a very sharp bend. Lacona is quiet and well situated being about equidistant from Portoferraio, Marina di Campo, Porto Azzurro and Capoliveri. Marina di Campo is the most touristic of these, Capoliveri is very pretty located on a hill but can be difficult to find parking there. Apart from Italians, tourists in the main are German, Swiss and Austrians. In Marina di Campo we tried three times to go on the advertised 2-hour boat trip on the 'Mickey Mouse'. Well named as it never happened despite being twice assured by the operator that the engine would be fixed "domani". Porto Azzurro was our favourite nearby town with a beautiful marina. The town comes to life at night when people come out for the ritual 'passaeggiata', eat their nightly 'gelato' and browse the stalls selling mostly knick knacks. But watch out for cyclists in the 'pedestrian' zones as they seem to believe they have a right to squeeze between the people! The nearest shop to the Mini Hotel is pretty bad and overpriced though it has an ATM. You really need to drive to one of the nearby towns for shopping. Overall a pleasant stay on Elba.

We arrived without a clear picture of where and what the hotel is. We had just got married and were looking for a real chill out week.

The Hotel is halfway up a hillside near the elusive settlement of Lacona and has stunning views over 2 bays and the most beautiful countryside. It is self catering, with a bar but the nearest shop and bank is 15 minutes walk downhill, so you either need a car or to be active and enjoy a healthy walk. The 2 beaches are large and good quality 20-30 mins walk downhill from the hotel.

The apartment we stayed in included a living room/kitchen, a bathroom and a bedroom. It was spotless with all fixtures in good condition with ample cooking stuff. The landlady was incredibly helpful and really took care of her guests. We were lucky enough to be present for one of their their barbecue which they laid on free for all their guests (30 ish).

Reccomended for active people or those willing to hire own transport, occasional buses do run but may take a bit of planning. We spent 4 days exploring the local area then hired a car for the last 3 (E45 per day) and had a great time.
