8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location, beautiful views, good beach, pristine water, lovely friendly staff, great swimming pools, good food in the restaurants. Awesome swimming teacher, Andrea. The breakfast was good for Italy. Nothing was too much bother.
Cons: The rooms needs a bit of a revamp. The bathrooms and walk in wardrobes were v small for the price compared to other top notch hotels we have stayed at around the world. Also a Nespresso machine and tea making facilities as a standard feature would be nice and maybe a welcome drink/snack/fruit/chocs etc.... When you are paying 1000 euros a night for a family room, expectations are high. The hotel had the feel of slightly faded glory. The first time we ordered room service, they brought us sachets of oil, vinegar, salt and pepper instead of bottles and mills. Not good enough for a 5 star hotel. To be fair they didn’t make that mistake twice.... They also need parasols on the sun beds around the pools, so you can watch your kids in the shade.... 14 euros for an apérol spritz....
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location of this hotel is so beautiful. Even though we only paid for a garden view room, they upgraded us to a sea view for no cost. The staff is all bi-lingual and very friendly - we especially found the waitstaff to be great. Carlos at Reception was exceptional - he got us a taxi from the ferry and was very helpful. The room was lovely and comfortable, my only quibble was that there was no iron and the hair dryer was very poor quality. But when you are staying a t beach who really cares! The beach and a pool were exceptional. My mom and I spent the whole day gassing out at the amazing views and had a delicious lunch at the swim up bar in the pool. It was exactly the R&R we were looking for. The food at any of the restaurants at the resort was delicious - including the breakfast. The last night we ate at the main dining hall as everything else was closed for dinner, and while we grumbled a little about having to get dressed up, the food was worth it! We did the pre-fix menu with the salad and dessert buffet, and it is well worth the money. We had a grand time and savored every bite. The last thing I will say is that although the restaurants are great, be forewarned that there are no other places to eat outside the resort if you don't have a car. The resort is on the other side of the mountain so you can't get back to Portoferrio without a taxi, and we didn't want to pay $25 euros for a cheaper meal. But other than that it is exceptional!
Cons: The resort is very secluded so don't expect to go elsewhere once you get there if you don't have a car. I would have liked more casual beachfront options for dinner and a little downtown to do shopping.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The view, the restaurant & the BBQ! Very clean.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Exceptional hotel, staff and location. Couldn't ask for more. First class
Cons: n/a
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beach area is fantastic. Amazing location. Really relaxing vibe to the hotel. We had the 4 course dinner in the restaurant which we thought was fantastic!
Cons: No tea/coffee facilities in the room would expect a nespresso machine which is pretty standard these days. Although we had some very good service, especially in the evening restaurants! We dined at both. I would say the staff give off an unfriendly vibe in general. Could have more people by the beach. 1 server for the whole beach is quite poor. Travelling in September a lot of close by restaurants were closed for the season.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Superb amenities and location. Excellent staff + service, superb.
Cons: Bathroom not great. Terrible closing loo seats. Should be soft close for 5 star hotel. Silicone around Bath.. poor. Tired paintwork around doors. Otherwise perfect + very clean. Lack of privacy between balconies on bedroom terrace.
6.7 Good
Pros: Nice hotel,nice location but living on it's reputation. Needs to be improved in certain areas such as restaurant options that are not all expensive.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: wonderful hidden location! in the middle of nature with stunning view on portoferraio bay. Very beautiful terrace, cosily furnished, beautiful well kept Garden. I've had a single room, with own bathroom, which was small but absolutely sufficient for my purpose. Breakfast was very good. I certainly can recommend the hotel and I myself will stay there again, for sure...
Cons: ---
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beautifully located, with lovely view over Portoferraio. Very relaxing atmosphere. It was very special to have breakfast on the terrace with harp music playing in the background. It was the perfect holiday feeling!!! Staff was really friendly and accommodating. Dinner at the restaurant of the hotel was always nicely presented and tasted delicious. Our room was comfortable; we had a lovely view from our terrace.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location, great service, possibility of dining at the resturant (high value for money), very kind staff.

Featured amenities include a business center, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
6.7 Good
Pros: Beautiful bay views. Allocated beach beds.
Cons: For us the stay was ruined by our initial welcome (or lack of it!) we arrived around 7pm after a days travelling to be told we couldn’t eat in their restaurant as my partner didn’t have long trousers! This was not stated on their website nor were we warned about this prior to our stay and was the reason we Initially chose this hotel over Hermitage. We were offered toast in room service! This meant every evening we had to walk to the nearest restaurant (which were just as miserable and poor food) or drive out - which we happily did just to get away from the uncomfortable atmosphere at this hotel! The rooms were small, hard beds and flat pillows. Breakfast was good food but ruined by the amount of wasps around. Not one member of staff made us feel welcome. Completely up their own arses! Also the resort is quite restrictive, not much to do. Having visited other bits of the island there are far nicer places to stay.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely staff. The most beautiful location I've ever seen. The beach was clean and glorious with your own sun loungers, towels provided. Very relaxed atmosphere
Cons: There could have been more information in the room regarding food. Dinner especially. A menu would have been nice and alternatives if you did not want anything too formal. Some bathrobes would have been nice too,
7.5 Good
Pros: Very friendly staff Good location Great Beach Food was very good
Cons: Service was quite slow and at dinner we were never offered dessert or coffee etc Suddenly all staff had disappeared
4.2 Okay
Pros: AC unit worked for first 15 min, then then it just blew warm, smelly air. When I complained they said "Usually we do not turn on air conditioning in May". For a 4-star hotel to tell this to the guest is unacceptable. The temperature in the room did not drop below 24C Boring breakfast, fixed dinner menu. 2.5 star, no more.
6.7 Good
Pros: The property in general was fine. Staff seemed kind and the room was clean. Breakfast buffet was ok, not extra rich though. Sea is nice, clean. Having a private beach is also an advantage.
Cons: The main problem was the location of the hotel. We had b&b in order to experience the local food at the restaurants nearby. But, forget about it. There are around 5 restaurants at the Biodola bay and none of them are good. You have to drive to the city center/or other bays but we didn’t have a car and the last bus to turn back to hotel was only at 19:30. It’s not possible to walk since it’s really hilly. Additionally, the hotel has interesting regulations. It was not possible to enter to the swimming pool before 9:00 and after 19:00. It’s really early!!! The sun was shining! It also happened several times that they cleaned the room with “do not disturb” sign. Also, keep in mind that you need to pay for the towels at the beach. Only the umbrealla and sun beds are included in the hotel price.
8.8 Excellent
Cons: The bird tapping on my window in the morning
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Location and food was fantastic. The beach beautiful and the chairs they provided free with umbrella were very comfortable. The views were unbelievable.
Cons: Hotel should provide towel rack. Customers were placing their towels over the railings. It really took way of the beauty of the hotel.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: the peaceful locations and gardens
Cons: nothing
5.0 Okay
Pros: Only positives about the hotel is excellent breakfast, nice garden and pool. But more negative points.
Cons: Check inn unfriendly, not at all accommodating, during the day time the different receptionist was friendlier so was night receptionist. Room even tough the only one with a side view of the sea was very small could not even bring in a suitcase.2 single beds of 60/180 was very unconfortable. stayed 3 nights with the same sheets, towels were tea towels couldn't dry properly out of the shower, had to bring or buy your own pool towels.Indeed a 2 star hotel. This should be noted in the brochure. Due to next door construction works , were not able to have a sleep inn they started at 07.00, with heavy machinery. windows had to be open for air, while no aircon,( i know not normal for 2 -3 * hotels) but october has fresh nights, still need the window open. impossible for the summer with over 37C temp. Was stated 3 star hotel but at the hotel it showed 2 star. Stated also in publicity 3 min. walk from the beach, but didn't say that beach was a non-usable beach, rubbish, everywhere, broken boats, area where beach is not cleaned up. also not possible for walking. Area was the wine area and more agriculture then facilities expected . For this and being october price was to high in consideration other 4 star hotels in the area. Will definitely not return.
7.9 Good
Pros: The pool and the gardens were lovely. The breakfast wasn’t very good as was the dinner.
Cons: The bathroom had an odour
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Quiet place, close to the beach. Pension staff really helpful. Nice swimming-pool, good and rich breakfast. You can rent a bike directly in the hotel. It is easy to reach Portoferraio in a few minutes by car.
Cons: In the summer days we would appreciate the air-condition, it was rally hot in the room, mainly during the night.
Hotel Il Caminetto - Portoferraio - Balcony
5
8.9 Excellent (146 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Il Caminetto is a rustic and comfortable establishment situated in the very centre of Elba Island, the largest of the Tuscan Archipelago, and part of its protected Natural Park. All rooms have independent access. They may be located on the first floor and provided with a balcony, or on the ground floor with access to the garden. Wi-Fi is free throughout. Il Caminetto is surrounded by nature and provides amazing views of the sea. The temperatures in Elba are approximately 4 degrees lower than on the coast, so you will be able to enjoy sunny yet cooler summer vacations. Forget about the chaotic and noisy urban life, and get ready to have wild birds sing your wake up call in the morning. After a healthy breakfast at Hotel Il Caminetto, venture trekking and biking, spend a pleasant day trip to the nearby beaches, or simply enjoy the outdoor pool. Il Caminetto is located in the San Martino Valley, where Napoleon built his summer residence while confined in Elba.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: the balcony, the pool, the views, the staff and cleanliness, location and food
Cons: very minor comments but bit more drawer space, opportunity for a second coffee at breakfast
6.7 Good
Pros: Breakfast was a bit disappointing, but more or less what you can expect in Italy.
Cons: The hotel is much further from the beach etc than the pictures. The Wifi didnt work for 2 of 3 days of our stay. And last, but not at all the least, the restaurant was not any good at all.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Booked last minute but had a very good welcome. Clean rooms with great view. Breakfast is decent, nice to eat outside. Good location to explore the island. 10min drive from Portoferraio centre.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location, sea food, sunsets
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Superb view and location
7.1 Good
Pros: Very friendly staff in the reception, easy to park just outside for free, good breakfast, very clean. The second room we stayed in (top floor with a sea view) was much nicer than the first: it seemed recently refurbished and the bed was comfortable, and the view from the balcony was fantastic. Nice pool.
Cons: Noise from other rooms was easily heard. The service in the restaurant was not very good. We stayed in two different rooms, the first (bottom floor) had an uncomfortable bed and was rather worn out. The private beach was not worth going to (especially not when there are so many nice beaches close by).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful tranquil waterside location. Welcoming and efficient check in. Cleanliness of rooms. Satisfying evening meal and included Belfast. Good value price.
Cons: Having to leave.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the quiet picturesque location. Ideal. Food was excellent and varied. Waiting staff were so attentive and efficient. Great little pool and private beach couple of minutes stroll away. Cobbled seabed ( bring your beach shoes) but clear clear warm water. Beautiful sunsets. Fell in love with this place. It is a little remote but if you don't have your own transport there is a hotel shuttle / for small fee /and public bus service available.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was clean, the bed was firm and comfy and it was quiet and calm. Just what we needed. We stayed out of season but it looks like they have facilities for children and a sailing school. Within 15 to 25 minutes we were in easy reach of most of the best beaches and sea side towns as well as Portoferraio, which wasn’t really worth the trip.
Cons: Nothing.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Above all I liked the perfect location close to the sea and the very friendly and good staff. Also the hotels pools were nice.
Cons: No
5.7 Okay
Pros: Lovely swimming pool which was pretty quiet during the day as everyone seemed to go out on day trips. We had a big balcony at the far side at the top so it was quiet and we had a great view. Nice restaurant but book your table during the day for the evening.
Cons: Last boat from Portoferraio was 6.30pm. There was only one restaurant in Maggazini which belonged to the hotel so no choice but the restaurant was lovely and had great live music one evening. Rooms are very basic so it was expensive for what you got.
4.0 Okay
Cons: the food
7.0 Good
Pros: Very nice staff, gorgeous location, decent to excellent food, clean rooms, value for money, peace and quiet, a pleasant pool with lots of loungers, and some enchanting ducksin the yacht harbour who liked to dine with us - the restaurant is on the quayside. They were all drakes, except for one female who turned up one day with three ducklings. There were also two quite seperate ducks from that lot, a black one and a white one, who were clearly deeply in love, were always together and performed an intricate mating neck waving ritual every now and then. So as well as a lovely setting there were things going on! And then there were the other guests.
Cons: Not really, although maybe thehotel might run the occasional minibus to town should there be punters wanting to use it. Travelling by boat to Portoferraio was terrific, and takes about 30 minutes, but the day the weather stopped it coming (too choppy) presented a problem for non car users like us, But the hotel did take us and others to town in their mini bus so they solved the difficulty. The location is OK during the day for getting to and from, but if you take half board, have lunch, and decide to eat in townin the evening - because there are loads of nice places - getting back means a taxi,....and even a car would not help because one woudl be insane to drink and drive on Elba's roads. The island needs a better bus service actually.
5.2 Okay
Pros: The restaurant was very good (a la carte at least). Very clean rooms. Could have good sea view but we had tree view.
Cons: Very poor children facilities and the beach was unuseable. Car was a must.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was great! We liked it a lot. Especially the stuff was friendly and very helpful. The location is about a few steps by the sea, so we felt the sea breeze with hearing the waves all the time.
Cons: Nothing.
6.4 Good
Pros: Staff were welcoming and helpful. Food was simple but fresh. Sea view was beautiful.
Cons: It was a little chilly at night and the room wasn't heated, or at least I couldn't get the radiators to work. Staff did provide an extra blanket though! Also, not the hotel's fault, but there are no buses and the taxi collectivo is infrequent. Standard taxi costs over 20 euros to Portoferraio from Magazzini and there is no way to walk.
7.2 Good
Pros: Quiet but central location and stunning views - being right by the sea. Reception staff and our waiter exceptional nice.
Cons: The dining room which needed suttle lighting given stunning views and more willingness to allow resident guests to sit outside on the terrace [although we were 'allowed to'].Candles inside and out would give perfection to the setting. Maitre d could be friendlier.Perhaps a proper Bar with sitting area would have been good.
6.8 Good
Pros: Position was excellent.
Cons:

A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The lady on the reception was very helpful and tried her best. Just too remote without a car. The campsite across the road was good for a meal (it did say no non residents but was ok)
Cons: If you don't have a car you are stuck. 2 buses a day, 9.20am and 1.30pm in and out of town. The restaurant was closed 2 weeks ago . At least 20 mins down hill and up the road to get to a restaurant. Also no beer in hotel. Winter bus times are poor. We left after 1 night and stayed in Portoferraio.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The location of the hotel is beautiful, there is a sea view and there is peace and quiet. The cleanliness was taken care of in the room. Portoferraio is a 5-minute drive away.
Cons: Breakfast was rich but uneventful, the same menus were set daily. At our departure in the morning there was no opportunity to get lunchbox or coffee even though I asked for it the day before. The room was running water from the air-conditioning. A septic tank stinks in the car parking lot.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Decent size but with friendly staff. Family run. Good facilities.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Quiet in the middle of the woods with a nice view that you can enjoy at the hotel‘s restaurant or pool. You def. need a car however. The staff was also very nice and the room lovely and clean.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff, particularly Jessica, were so helpful and understanding when we shortened our stay. They also shuttled us to town twice to help out. Great location and views if you are visiting the island and have a vehicle.
Cons: Its rather far from town and if you dont have a car the taxi fares are genuinely obscene for a mere 5kms. The public transport is very infrequent and cannot be relied upon.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful even ironed some of my clothes as I forgot my travel iron The location was great The view fantastic The pool area was great The room was cleaned daily and fresh towels also provided daily
Cons: The shuttle service to the town was not available until late June so we had to hire a car as taxis up and down were 15 Euro’s each way working out quiet expensive on a 7 night stay! We did walk down into Portoferraio once or twice but it took well over an hour on a busy road!! No footpath! The hairdryer provided was useless! And the hotel bar was closed at 11pm which when on holiday is a little early!

Cons: Amazing location with the fantastic view and charming personnel, perfect sevice.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great view. Friendly staff. Really clean.
Cons: All good except that with a small kid (<2y in our case), it might not be the most convenient hotel (quite some stairs, away from main facilities...). But perfect place otherwise.
7.5 Good
Pros: The private beach beside the property is really nice and not too far to walk. The views from the patio are also stunning.
Cons: My husband woke up the first morning to find ants all over his pillow. We complained and the problem was solved very quickly. I also think there should be a sign on the fridge explaining that there is a charge for the water. The water in the taps was too salty to drink and we assumed this was why there was free water in the fridge. We were surprised to be charged for it at check out and would have purchased water at the grocery store (at a much cheaper price) had we known.
4.2 Okay
Pros: La vue , l’emplacement
Cons: - you only for the view otherwise everything else is expensive . Depends on the season but the hotel is far from everything . Taxi will cost 25 euros to go to the nearest village and 25 euros to go back to the hotel . Super expensive . No supermarket near . Since it’s far you have to eat dinner at the hotels restaurant which is additional 25 euros . The hotel director super super super RUDE . He doesn’t speak English so he doesn’t welcom you or ask you if you are ok . I asked just for an aspirin or a vitamin he laughed at me . If you speak Italian he might say hello to you . The girls at the reception and the restaurant were nice and helpful . I asked for a large double bed ,they gave me twin beds so you finish your night in the middle of the bed almost falling . The house keeper don’t think about if you are sleeping at 8 am or on vacation ,they move all the furnitures in the other rooms to clean so they wake you up. Food has nothing special so since there is no supermarket next to the hotel you have to pay double for everything . No even free water to welcome you . In October ,There is a bus, but only at 9 am or at 2 pm so if you have to come back to the hotel add 25 euros for the taxi . Anyways better to stay somewhere else . Not really worth the money . If you are not athletic there is a private beach but 200 steps to go down and up . So basically not going back to that hotel . There are so much better hôtels in the island .
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great little hotel, comfortable room with terrace onto garden overlooking the sea, perfect for a glass of proseco late in the afternoon. Staff was great, friendly and professional. Breakfast buffet was fantastic. Set menu in the evening was really good. We stayed an extra 2 nights, so much we loved it. Great base for touring the highland.
Cons: No wi fi in the room only on common areas.

Pros: Location is good and the staff is nice
Cons: Too expensive for the quality . The room shouldn't cost more than 70, 80 euros maximum. We paid 118 per night for a very basic room. We had to pay to rent a beach towel. For the price we paid they should provide that service for free.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice hotel near a small free beach & few minutes walking from the city. Great service and comfy level, especially good and rich buffet breakfast.
Cons: Our budget room window was directly opening to a wall (the lower level of a garden), don't choose budget room if possible.
6.3 Good
Pros: The location was peaceful and nearby a beach. 15 minute walk required to get to the center.
Cons: When we arrived the elevator was broken and they didn't manage to fix it during our 3 days staying. We were at the 2nd floor and had to carry our heavy bags ourselves up and down. Our room was very warm and after asking for someone to inspect our Airco the receptionist friendly replied that they turned off the airco in the whole building because it was not warm anymore at that moment... (September 26-28°)

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Excellent hotel, but the restaurant staff not so much! They seemed bothered and upset most of the time. The bartender was awesome and always served with a smile as well as the front desk staff.
Cons: The restaurant waiters. Not welcoming at all.
4.6 Okay
Cons: Beach side is very small and stony, absolutely not suitable for swimming. Pictures make false impression that hotel have nice beach side.
7.9 Good
Pros: Very delicious breakfast, big room and even bathroom, nice staff, conveniently near the port and a good spot to travel around island.
Cons: Nice beach but probably because vicinity of the port the sea isn't very clean, so don't expect a jump in. There is a nice pool instead if you like a lot of kids. Pool toilets should be cleaned more often, they were beyond words at out stay there. Also white lobby furniture and grass beanbags are far from white and inviting and the pond in front of the hotel looks very deserted. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice enough place but with a bit more care and put some thought in it, it can be great. Oh, one more...please mow the grass after 9, on holidays we like to sleep in sometimes.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast Good ! Situation and facilities perfect. Clean, friendly staff. Rooms a bit depressing.... not charming.
Cons: Upgrade of the rooms and the bathroom
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel has a beautiful pool, also some sunbeds nearby on a small beach area. It was pleasant to stroll beside this. Food was good, staff friendly and helpful. Room more than comfortable. Only problem was the hotel was so nice we did not want to leave it to sight see!
Cons: Would have been nice to have coffee served at breakfast instead of self service. Don't recommend the scrambled eggs!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The grounds and buildings and scenery was spectacular...
Cons: The people next door had a baby that was very loud....little sleeping for us for the last night. Very annoying and disappointing for us....
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a beautiful place with the best swimming pool I have ever encountered at a resort. It is perfect for serious swimmers. However the little bay is an easy walk and the hotel has complimentary deck chairs as part of the deal. This resort seems almost exclusively run by women and they do a tremendous job. They are helpful, thoughtful and endlessly cheerful. This is our favourite resort in Europe.
Cons: Nothing, it was all perfect, including the weather.
7.9 Good
Pros: The building was fantastic! The hotel was really near the ocean but the swimmingpool at the hotel was not that bad either. The surroundings was beautiful.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: A residence was really nice with nice and helpful service and many opportunities for families (for example: cooking and pool for kids). Ideal to have a breakfast outside with a beautiful view.
Cons: The furnitures were a little old and the bathroom need to be renovated. Other than this everything was clean and cozy.
4.6 Okay
Pros: Beach, parking garage.
Cons: Dark rooms, one bedroom had just one tiny window, poor furniture quality, cold children's pool (sea was bit warmer), closed reataurants during lunchtime, no food store nearby. In the building was parking but unlogically our parking space was in the oposite parking lot. One of the biggest disappointments so far. Pictures on the website contradicts the reality. Overpriced for what we got. We decided to leave this and stayed elsewhere.
7.5 Good
Pros: Friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, very basic apartments. The restaurant on site is lovely as are the few restaurants near the beach.
Cons: Very remote so a car is a must.
6.0 Good
Pros: The property per se and the location are absolutely stunning. The buildings have an unique architecture and are located in some amazing gardens - very very special surroundings. The pool for adults also looks amazing.
Cons: The apartments of the residence are really really basic, not to say poor. The kitchen is equiped with the basic things that one might need, but all the furniture is old and rundown. We had a really hard time using the bathroom which looked extremely used and badly mantained.

6.7 Good

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were great, friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, close to the centre but quiet. The breakfast was very good. A really lovely stay. Recommend
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Right on the beach and if you have a seafront room with balcony the view is mighty fine. Also just around the corner from all the town’s action and ferries but without the noise. The hotel also has its own private beach with deck chairs.
Cons: Quite a small room with an extremely tight shower so if you’re of a larger size you may well find it a struggle.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is good and central for a beach, and easily accessible for town or port sides of Portoferraio. The staff are exceptionally kind, friendly and efficient. It was a pleasure to stay there. The rooms have all you need and are very clean. The breakfast buffet is welcoming, the cakes delicious. Compliments and thanks to the team there.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Fully-serviced hotel with comfortable and well-equipped rooms, excellent dining room and friendly and competent staff. I have stayed there several times and there is nowhere else in Portoferraio that gives as good value for money or such a good guest experience.
Cons: Just one minor point was that the light in the room wasn't bright enough to enable reading at the desk and there was no desk lamp.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Good location
Cons: This hotel was terrible value for money I paid a lot of money for a tiny room Bathroom window didn’t open He had a garden / road view with works being done early morning and it was noisy The TV was fixed high up on wall and dad found it difficult to hear it unless volume was high and it disturbed neighbours so he could not even watch tv in his room and he had to join the common room Meals were in the garden and birds would fly over his head Overall I would never ever consider rebooking this The staff was awful to my father and the room was terrible I paid a fortune and I feel it was an utter rip off
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great view and excellent breakfast
Cons: Bathroom was good but as usual with the Bidet its a bit cramped. Shower takes a little time to warm up but its very hot here so not too much of an issue.

Pros: Perfect place for those who come with a car and want to explore the island. All basic facilities, good air con, balcony, nice and sunny pool to chill.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Accomodation was very nice and dinners, breakfasts were delicious. I was satisfied.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: One lady the does day-time reception was very nice, she speaks English and is friendly. Not the grumpy woman behind computer she does not even try to talk English, not nice, not helpful, passive aggressive.
Cons: Everything said on the property is a lie. It does not have a restaurant (where you can eat on daily basis), the is no wine tasting on a winery, no hot springs, not close to ferry, no people that understand hospitality and customer friendliness, tv not working "oh sorry the maintenance guy has gone home I cannot do anything" , breakfast dude does not let you eat at patio so your forced to eat inside, poor breakfast service (why can"t these people not understand the first thing of the day is breakfast and SMILE for once!), poor breakfast choices-you will get a cappuccino but with a long face and a huge sigh. Did not get daily cleaning. Coffee bar open after 10am, why???
4.2 Okay

Cons: It was extremely dated, dingy, and overall would not stay here again.

Pros: Private entrance to our studio, comfortable bed, close parking

Pros: wonderful hidden location! in the middle of nature with stunning view on portoferraio bay. Very beautiful terrace, cosily furnished, beautiful well kept Garden. I've had a single room, with own bathroom, which was small but absolutely sufficient for my purpose. Breakfast was very good. I certainly can recommend the hotel and I myself will stay there again, for sure...
Cons: ---
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beautifully located, with lovely view over Portoferraio. Very relaxing atmosphere. It was very special to have breakfast on the terrace with harp music playing in the background.

Featured amenities include a business center, limo/town car service, and dry cleaning/laundry services.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great location, beautiful views, good beach, pristine water, lovely friendly staff, great swimming pools, good food in the restaurants. Awesome swimming teacher, Andrea. The breakfast was good for Italy. Nothing was too much bother.
Cons: The rooms needs a bit of a revamp. The bathrooms and walk in wardrobes were v small for the price compared to other top notch hotels we have stayed at around the world. Also a Nespresso machine and tea making facilities as a standard feature would be nice and maybe a welcome drink/snack/fruit/chocs etc.... When you are paying 1000 euros a night for a family room, expectations are high. The hotel had the feel of slightly faded glory. The first time we ordered room service, they brought us sachets of oil, vinegar, salt and pepper instead of bottles and mills. Not good enough for a 5 star hotel. To be fair they didn’t make that mistake twice.... They also need parasols on the sun beds around the pools, so you can watch your kids in the shade.... 14 euros for an apérol spritz....
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location of this hotel is so beautiful. Even though we only paid for a garden view room, they upgraded us to a sea view for no cost. The staff is all bi-lingual and very friendly - we especially found the waitstaff to be great. Carlos at Reception was exceptional - he got us a taxi from the ferry and was very helpful. The room was lovely and comfortable, my only quibble was that there was no iron and the hair dryer was very poor quality. But when you are staying a t beach who really cares! The beach and a pool were exceptional. My mom and I spent the whole day gassing out at the amazing views and had a delicious lunch at the swim up bar in the pool. It was exactly the R&R we were looking for. The food at any of the restaurants at the resort was delicious - including the breakfast. The last night we ate at the main dining hall as everything else was closed for dinner, and while we grumbled a little about having to get dressed up, the food was worth it! We did the pre-fix menu with the salad and dessert buffet, and it is well worth the money. We had a grand time and savored every bite. The last thing I will say is that although the restaurants are great, be forewarned that there are no other places to eat outside the resort if you don't have a car. The resort is on the other side of the mountain so you can't get back to Portoferrio without a taxi, and we didn't want to pay $25 euros for a cheaper meal. But other than that it is exceptional!
Cons: The resort is very secluded so don't expect to go elsewhere once you get there if you don't have a car. I would have liked more casual beachfront options for dinner and a little downtown to do shopping.

Pros: The view, the restaurant & the BBQ! Very clean.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beach area is fantastic. Amazing location. Really relaxing vibe to the hotel. We had the 4 course dinner in the restaurant which we thought was fantastic!
Cons: No tea/coffee facilities in the room would expect a nespresso machine which is pretty standard these days. Although we had some very good service, especially in the evening restaurants! We dined at both. I would say the staff give off an unfriendly vibe in general. Could have more people by the beach. 1 server for the whole beach is quite poor. Travelling in September a lot of close by restaurants were closed for the season.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Superb amenities and location. Excellent staff + service, superb.
Cons: Bathroom not great. Terrible closing loo seats. Should be soft close for 5 star hotel. Silicone around Bath.. poor. Tired paintwork around doors. Otherwise perfect + very clean. Lack of privacy between balconies on bedroom terrace.
6.7 Good
Pros: Nice hotel,nice location but living on it's reputation. Needs to be improved in certain areas such as restaurant options that are not all expensive.

Pros: Beach nearby. Nice staff.
5.0 Okay
Pros: Location is good and the staff is nice
Cons: Too expensive for the quality . The room shouldn't cost more than 70, 80 euros maximum. We paid 118 per night for a very basic room. We had to pay to rent a beach towel. For the price we paid they should provide that service for free.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice hotel near a small free beach & few minutes walking from the city. Great service and comfy level, especially good and rich buffet breakfast.
Cons: Our budget room window was directly opening to a wall (the lower level of a garden), don't choose budget room if possible.
6.3 Good
Pros: The location was peaceful and nearby a beach. 15 minute walk required to get to the center.
Cons: When we arrived the elevator was broken and they didn't manage to fix it during our 3 days staying. We were at the 2nd floor and had to carry our heavy bags ourselves up and down. Our room was very warm and after asking for someone to inspect our Airco the receptionist friendly replied that they turned off the airco in the whole building because it was not warm anymore at that moment...
