“Beautiful hotel; fantastic hospitality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

We are staying here for 4 nights at the end of July (couple aged 29 & 32 from London).

Nicola, the owner, is an absolute STAR - so welcoming! Nothing is too much trouble :)

It's a short & pleasant walk down to the beach (arguably the best on the island). It's high season but not crowded here.

The pool is gorgeous & quiet. Plenty of sun loungers, and a jacuzzi.

It really is like a little sanctuary around the hotel..... Not a place to come for nightlife; but totally relaxing :)

I will update the review after we leave but just wanted to say that if you are thinking of coming here you will not be disappointed! :)

For a number of years, we have been spending our summer holiday on the island of Elba always staying at the hotel Montemerlo.
The high standard of service, very good food and genuine interest of the staff, that we should have an enjoyable stay remains constant.
We would like to highly recommend this hotel.

As I can see from other reviews on this site, we were not the only ones who had a wonderful experience with Hotel Montemerlo. Nicola was beyond accommodating, helping us choose excellent restaurants and activities while we stayed on the island. The room was very comfortable and the hotel itself was beautiful - a sparkling swimming pool, lush plant life and a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere to enjoy after a day on the beach. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Elba, which seems to be a secret respite off of the coast of Italy.

Nicola and his staff made us feel welcome guests from the moment we arrived. The room was bright and well furnished with a balcony which faced on to the swimming pool. We were particularly delighted by the ecologically friendly theme and could see that the family are making this the mainstay of the hotel. Nicola was always attentive and willing to give us guidance when we were looking for walks.to do. The menu was varied and the food was seldom less than delicious. We look forward to a further visit in the future. Lee and Simon

Hotel Montemerlo is a really wonderful hotel located 10 minutes walk from Fetovaia beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Elba. The hotel is very nice and cozy, Nicola and his family are really friendly and helpful and would make their best to make you feel at home. The rooms are very clean and provided with every comfort. The hotel has a swimming pool but the sea itself is a swimming pool, with the clearest water I've ever seen. Montemerlo is surrounded by nature and it's eco-friendly: Nicola's commitment to turn his hotel into a place as nature-friendly as possible is really great. I'd recommend Hotel Montemerlo to all the people who want to spend some time in a beautiful, quiet place, dipped into nature, far (but not too far) from the "movida" that characterizes Elba during summer (especially in august), served and revered by friendly staff and with great typical Italian food (a lot of fresh fish).

For Italian standards, this hotel should have an extra star. The client is at the centre of attention. The hotel clean, renewed, great food and cozy. We were with our two kids in the Casa del Banano and it was very comfortable. The owners are really nice. Sara and her husband Michele, who manages the Pino Solitario beach, are always careful at every single detail. Too bad we had to leave after a week for another place in Marina Di Campo... Excellent quality price ratio.

We just came back from Hotel Montemerlo and I have to say one think – it was the best relax ever!
Montemerlo is a family run hotel in the very quiet part of Elba Island. It´s great for everyone who loves nature, doesn’t need a lot of shops, restaurants and bars.
Nicola and his family are very friendly and totally helpful (still on the phone to help you with everything). Hotel has excellent service, great local food and perfect location in the olive, banana and figs garden right above the see.
Pino Solitairo Beach (about 10 min walk) is very clean, perfectly blue but you have to pay for sunbed and umbrella about 20 euro a day – as a Montemerlo guest you have a 10 % discount for beach service and the great restaurant on the beach.
Perfectly clean hotel pool was situated right above our room (no.26) and it´s eco-pool which means no chlorine. The pool is a center of the hotel and you can enjoy it during the whole day except nap time (from 2 to 4 pm) which is the time for relax, the whole hotel is absolutely calm and you can just relax… Other great time was after the diner (local food, 3 course menu), when you can sit by the pool, have a drink and listen to the frogs singing.
I would definitely recommend Hotel Montemerlo and I will come back again. If you like nature and want to relax, this is definitely the best place for you.
