After being positively impressed by other reviews, especially those mentioning the good restaurant, we decided to book a room at the Select Hotel for our holiday at the end of August 2011.
We stayed there for one week on a half board basis, and we've been not disappointed.
The hotel is located just a few steps away from the beach and features a free parking and a nice pool.
Concerning the restaurant, dinner at Select hotel was usually based on an appetizer buffet, two à-la-carte courses, a wide choice of cakes and pastries (delicious....watch your waist !!) and fresh fruit. The breakfast was based on a full buffet as well, including hot and cold meals and viennoiserie. The cuisine was not much elaborated but very well prepared, so we consider this aspect as one of the strenghts of this hotel.
Several beautiful beaches are just a few kms away (don't miss Cavoli, Fetovaia, Lacona and Laconella) and Marina di Campo center offers many shops, restaurants, bars, etc. where you can spend the evening.
Among the cons of this hotel, the rooms look a little bit "old" (especially the TV set and minibar fridge) and could benefit from some renovation: however, this aspect may be considered as a minor flaw if you are mainly interested in staying at the beach or enjoying the beautiful nature of Elba Island.
