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.
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.
Cons: the food
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pros: Position was excellent.

The initial part of the hotel Capo Sud was constructed in 1955 by the Di Puccio family, which still manages it today. Since then, the hotel has expanded and been renovated several times, but the reserved and amicable welcome to guests has never changed.

These peaceful houses are called: la Palma, l’Eucaliptus, il Sole, l’Aleatico, la Luna, i Pini, le Mimose, l’Usignolo, il Pittosforo, il Riccio and Salvia Marina; their names were suggested by their specific positions in the green surrounds of the Mediterranean forest in which the hotel is located. Each room is surrounded by vegetation and has a small balcony or terrace.
One of the characteristics most appreciated by our guests is the proximity to the sea. The three pathways leading a few hundred metres down to the private beach and the swimming pool start from the terrace where breakfast is served, near the lake of the nymphs.
Cons: Bathrooms/bathtub needs upgrading. General maintenance needed inside.
