The restaurant was very good (a la carte at least). Very clean rooms. Could have good sea view but we had tree view.
Very poor children facilities and the beach was unuseable. Car was a must.
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.
Staff were welcoming and helpful. Food was simple but fresh. Sea view was beautiful.
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.
Quiet but central location and stunning views - being right by the sea. Reception staff and our waiter exceptional nice.
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.
Position was excellent.
