“our holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

My wife and I had a wonderful week from 4-11 April. The weather was nice though not overly warm .The hotel was a very good standard with good service .The breakfast was served in a pleasant area sunny and bright with a good choice of food hot or cold .Dinner was served in the main restaurant which was very relaxing and had a nice atmosphere often with a piano being played . I hope the maitre de Javier is well paid the way the staff work for him is excellent and his attention to detail is second to none .The golf course is in good condition, tight in places with the breezes but wide and forgiving in others.The par 3's are not easy the greens in good condition for the amount of traffic on them. Robert the Course Steward does a great job under tough circumstances some people out there have not played much golf and no etiquette. The swimming pool was not heated which was a shame but great not having children around. Good spacious bedroom plus bathroom had double sinks and large mirror but the hooks and towles were too high on the wall only suitable for tall guests! Like many hotels a double bed would be preferable rather than two beds together. Would recommend and will return.

Myself and my husband have just come home after a fantastic week in the Elba Palace Golf Hotel. 6-13 April 2013..
Like the last time It was amazing.....We were there in oct 2012. I cant say enough good things about this hotel. It is perfect if you want to really chill out... Play golf. Eat fab food..House wine 12.80 euro... Not for everybody but if you want total relaxation, This is def the place. . [ no children under 18 ]..The course is in great condition, The spanish open was held here in 2004.. With the ever changing strong winds it can be quite a challenge... The hotel is spotless, choice of food is fantastic..The staff are brilliant,.
Juan, general manager an absolute gent, and so suave and looks very sharp always in the restaurant to greet you... Javier, Head Waiter Was fantastic, so friendly and if you want something different he will do his best to get it for you ... Pilar, Assistant Manager, A Lady, she could not do enough for us. She was so nice so helpful.. Thresa, Sara, Anetta, ect! ect! all the girls and guys in the bar and restaurant and reception were so nice and helpful,.Robert, Course Ranger.. wow!! what a really nice guy.. All the staff take pride in there job, and really show that they love what they do, [ aim to please]... Really cant recommend this hotel and golf course enough.. We are going back in Oct 2013.. Cant wait...

An excellent small hotel with superb service, décor and accommodation. It really is 5 English stars (maybe the self service buffet starter and deserts drag the score down but compensated by having so much choice). Breakfast was very varied and included freshly squeezed OJ, bubbly and blackberry or mango milk shakes. We booked this hotel as a last minute break for a family of 4 despite none of us being golfers, but I at least had a golfer’s jumper so blended in OK! Location set a few miles back from the coast so less than ideal for us strollers but the courtesy bus ran regularly to and from the beach/town centre so no great hardship. As well as walks up and down the promenade when the town ends a coast walk takes you through level scrubland so a bike hire is a good option. Our room, beds and wardrobe were all of generous size with kettle, tea & coffee, AC, fridge, safe and Wifi all FOC. Large well fitted out bathroom had nice toiletries and throw away slippers provided and a towelling robe. The hotel seems to be a ‘door closer free zone’ so ambiance generally very quiet, apart from noisy wearers of stiletto heels and the planes landing nearby in the daytime . Worked well as a ‘chilling out” card playing holiday virtually child free with a bit of sunbathing as well. Kids would find it a bit grim I suspect though there are 2 free computer terminals and a pool table (€2) and a short tennis court (€9 per hour). Finding a spot out of the wind by the pool sometimes difficult but the island is called the windy island after all. The scrum free food and very pleasant staff would encourage me back.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a balcony and higher rooms have a better view.

An early week to get some sun away from the cold, 16th March to 23rd March.
We took half board and the breakfast was fine, evening meal buffet for starter and dessert, main course chosen from the menu, two specials each day one fish one meat. every meal was different and very tasty.
A good selection of wines €20 to €40.
We did not take our golf clubs and hired at the hotel. This was okay but by the time you added club hire/trolley hire and green fees (even at the hotel guest reduced rate) it was €180 for two golfers - bit expensive.
A better option to take your own clubs.
The golf course was in very good condition, greens excellent (most of the golfers were a bit older so not hitting long irons into the greens, so no pitch marks). Not to long but tight with out of bounds and water hazards, all in all very good for a holiday course.
The rooms are more than adequate some of the fittings a bit dated, but this is not a problem.
The hotel staff are very friendly, but as in all hotels nowadays not enough of them, they work very hard to keep everyone happy.
For a weeks holiday - Excellent.

Room Tip: A view over the golf course, nice but not essential.

We were staying in Elba palace golf hotel last October 2012 love it so much that we are going back Saturday the 6th of April 2013. It is fab..Adult only hotel, I was surprised by how quiet it was without children playing in the pool. We loved it, we plan to book for later in the year while we are there..

Room Tip: Ask for golf or pool view.

Excellent hotel with outstanding staff who are pleasant and attentive.Cleanliness of both rooms and public areas of a very high standard.Partiicularly liked waiter service of the main course at dinner compared to the usual buffet in a lot of holiday hotels.Golf course very enjoyable and well maintained.Would not suit a boistrous party of all male golfers looking for fun and nightlife but then they would spoil the refined elegant atmosphere of this hotel.Our party of 4 couples had one of the best golf breaks ever and plan to return.

This was our second stay at this hotel and again we were impressed by how friendly, helpful and efficient the staff were. This maybe because the manager himself is very visible, not hiding away in an office, he gives a friendly hello and smile almost every day.
This is a small, quiet hotel with low-key entertainment and an on-site golf course, which is just perfect for us. We enjoyed our stay very much.
