“Adequate but nothing special.”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

There are limited hotel choices in Porto Ercole. At Don Pedro, most rooms have a nice view of the harbor and a terrace. The rooms are quite small. The only outlet for charging electronics that we could find was in the bathroom. We had to unplug the small tv to recharge phones. Our air conditioning did not work. The sheets were not up to the quality standard of better italian hotels. Wifi is available only in the bar and lobby. There is a private beach available but it is difficult to find with access marked by a "do not enter" sign. The hotel seems to cater to larger tour groups.

Spent 3 nights here at the end of August with our 3 young children. Great location overlooking the charming Porto Ercole, clearly a family-run establishment, done so with care. We ate only once in the restaurant, daily changing menu with a strong seafood emphasis. Waiting staff were great with the kids, and the same ones served breakfast on the terrace overlooking the port in the morning. Hotel beach nearby has lovely rock pools, and was the only time we wished for babysitting as they serve cocktails in the evening, overlooking the sea... Thanks Don Pedro for a great stay and welcome

We spontaneously drove to Argentario and first stayed in an unpleasant hotel in noisy, dirty, bustling San Stefano. We spent one dreary night in the awful Hotel Alfiero room overlooking an Agii gas station and garbage dumpster, as well as the harbor of San Stefano. Alfiero came with surly service. wew didn't unpack and couldn't wait to escape to adorable Porto Ercole around Monte Argentario. We drove to worlds-away delightful Porto Ercole. We arrived on a holiday weekend (June 2--like their US July 4), and the rooms with sea-view terraces were already all occupied. However, our twin-bedded room had a small balcony with garden/rear view which was very quiet, room 410. The very nice housekeeper provided us with a fridge on request. Maybe 3 meters away from room 410 is the hotel's enormous sea-view terrace with tables and chairs. You can sit outside, look at the twinkling harbor lights, play cards, drink a bottle of wine and have snacks, see the market along the "boardwalk" area in the evening and watch people strolling, and the mountains all around you. It's a nice walk up to the hotel after yet another gelato. 2 elevators. There is no air con, but it was cool enough in the frist few days of June. I think it would be too hot July/August, but maybe the evenings are cool enough even w/o cross-ventilation. Free unlimited wifi in lobby only. No wifi available in the rooms. Non-discountable 130 euros in June, 110 in May. Breakfast is included inside or on another nice sea-view long terrace on the 2nd (US 3rd) floor. Service throughout the hotel is kind and attentive.

Room Tip: If you want a fantastic view, ask for a large terrrace facing the sea. You will hear some street noi...

We were planning to stay at the hotel for only one night at the conclusion of a long bike trip but due to the rail strike we stayed an extra night. We spent the extra day at the hotel's private beach which was beautiful although it was a little confusing to find. But the staff was great. They couldn't have tried any harder. The room had a pretty view of the harbor and the food was excellent.

This hotel was somewhat overpriced in the month of August for the standard of some of the rooms. However, we were there at the height of the summer season and if you go at any other time of the year, the price reflects the correct price for the standard of the hotel. The reservation and front desk staff were very helpful and polite and the breakfast was good although there was no real variety from day to day and if you wanted an egg, that was an extra cost. We went earlier in the year to look at the rooms and then we made a booking for two rooms adjacent to each other as we were travelling with another couple over visiting us from London. We selected the two rooms we wanted. However, when we arrived there was one room that we had chosen but the other room was on 4th floor and smaller. I understand that people reserving for a month or so at a time rather than just 4 days like us, would take priority over us but it was a little disappointing as we had made the effort to drive out there to sort it. The 4th floor smaller room did not have the same facilities, like a fridge, as the larger lovely room on 1st floor yet, the tariff was the same. Maybe the tariff could reflect a little more the type of room? A pleasant basic hotel which, I guess, you could argue needs no frills because of its beautiful view overlooking the harbour.

We spent two nights at the Don Pedro for a quick beach break in between longer stays in Rome and the Tuscan countryside. The other Trip Advisor reviews and the photos on the hotel website are very accurate: very basic but very clean rooms, fantastic views and an easy walk down the hill to town. The hotel beach is small and rocky; for sand and waves, visit La Feniglia.

On the second night of our stay, we had dinner reservations at Il Pelicano. Unfortunately, our car died in the hotel parking lot. The hotel managers (owners?), helped us with the car rental company, arranged alternative transportation to Florence for the next day, changed our dinner reservation to a later time and arranged a taxi, with a very charming driver, to/from Il Pelicano. Grazie mille.
