Super room, great food, helpful polite staff. My only regret is that the hotel caters for children. I don't have a problem with children but with their parents who seem to believe that they are on holiday and the kids can do what they want.

Just returned from 5 nights in a family apartment (Paolino?). The apartment was nice, though not luxurious, but worked brilliantly for us. It had 2 bedrooms and a nice balcony overlooking the beach. Beach access is easy (right in front of the hotel) and the pool (where we spent a lot of time) was lovely. Food (we were half board)... More

A lovely location for a hotel within a reasonable walking distance of Procchio (10 to 15 mins). The hotel is right on the beach and has a really good sized pool. The beach had plenty of sunbeds when we were there in early July 16, but the hotel wasn't full by any means. Some lovely helpful staff on reception and... More

This is the perfect place to stay if you're coming to Elba. The town is only about 15 minutes from the ferry but not as high up as many of the others towns. This makes it much easier to come and go. The hotel's exterior is slightly dated, but they all are there. The interior is great- ask for a... More

We have been going to this wonderful place since more than a decade, finding a consistent level of services. It is really in a wonderful location, and ideal place to relax yourself after a long stressful year. Perfect for families and people that are able to enjoy a peaceful atmosphere.

We were extremely impressed with the hotel. The level of service was exceptionally high. As someone with a special diet, the restaurant staff went out of their way to ensure that my needs were met. The food was wonderful! Every staff member we encountered, from managers to housekeeping, was helpful and polite. This is a superb hotel!

This is one of the most beautiful beaches and most superb resorts on the island. If we didn't live in America, we'd be back every summer, but we hope to be back again in the coming years. Staying in this hotel made the rest of the hotels throughout our trip in Italy seem very lacking, and all along we wished... More
