Amazing hotel with exceptional staff. Beach is gorgeous and only complaint is the front row of sun beds are reserved for clients with suites and they never showed up

6/10 Good

3 Stars
Pretentious staff. Gave us a "sea view" room that overlooked their lobby roof. Room was 3 Stars by USA standards. Property was actually beautiful. But beds were too hard and bedding was poor - thin "pillows" left us with stiff necks. Rooms were not well insulated - thin walls. Charged is $4 for a mini-can of coke from the minibar. And this was one of the better resorts on the island.

Great spot to get away!
Gorgeous secluded hotel on a beautiful beach. As it is quite isolated, you will need to take a cab to go exploring, or out to other restaurants. Food is good here, but pricey! Lovely rooms, most with a small terrace and ocean view, but be prepared to walk and do lots of stairs! If it's raining, you need to walk outside to reach the main hotel.

Tuscan Paradise
The Hotel Hermitage is an all-in-one place to stay while enjoying the beauty of Elba. The rooms are comfortable and roomy. Breakfast is all inclusive and delicious. Lunch at the smaller poolside restaurant is fabulous, as is the wait staff. Dinner is 3 course yummy-a bit much for me, but tasty and filling. 3 sea water pools and a lovely beach with individual beach set ups equates to a wonderful, relaxing getaway. Definitely a must when in Elba.

Hotel der Superklasse
Sehr zuvorkommend und jederzeit freundlich. Ledidas SPA Angebot mag nicht überzeugen, da nur 1 Person arbeitet...

Die Lage ist 6 Sterne wert, das Hotel 4 Sterne und das Personal 5 Sterne. Die Infrastruktur muss dringend modernisiert werden. Ich habe bei ebookers 4‘000 Euro bezahlt, das Hotel hat vor Ort 3‘000 Euro abgerechnet. Hoppla!!!
