We have been coming here for over 5 years and it always wonderful. The rooms have a beautiful view, and it is very clean. The maitre and the servers are fun to talk to and always are ready to serve. The meals are great with a varied choice for dinner every night. Thanks to Giovanni and Pasquale and la Sig... More

Clean/ basic but very nice hotel in the Giglio Porto. Close to the port. Fantastic view to the sea. Made 2 swimming places in rock. Till the city public beach 10 min walk. Free car parking. Would advise the hotel to the travellets with no children. Sea view would be prefferible.

The island of Giglio has three centers of habitation supporting a permanent population of 400 (yup, that's all) that swells to maybe 1,500 in the summer months: Giglio Porto, Giglio Castello, and Campese. The Hotel Il Saraceno is a wonderful 3-star smack-dab on the water 300 meters from where the ferries from the mainland dock. It is an easy walk,... More

We stayed there while the Concordia was being floated - their busiest time, and one where you would expect the staff to be stressed. Not the case - excellent breakfast, nice facility, management accommodating and gracious (though a few were English-challenged, not surprising on Giglio.) If you can, get room 43 - excellent huge balcony with umbrella, same price I... More

I was visiting my dad for a week as he works on the island. There was a complication with where we were staying and the staff were not helpful at all and actually very rude. They refused to do anything for me as, in their words directed at me "she is not here to work". I also later found out... More

We had a reservation for a double room for 2 workers. Instead they got 3 guests: 2 workers more the daughter of one of them, the presence of which we had not been informed. We politely explained to the nice lady that we did not have availability of another room because the hotel was fully booked. Regarding instead the foreign... More

Not bad but over priced for what one gets. Great view of Costa Concordia. Breakfast was very simple but good. Room was ok cleanliness not too bad. Manager spoke some English and service was good. Would never have picked this place but due to CC I suppose more people will visit it in the future

This was a beautiful hotel, about a 10 minute walk from the ferry/village along cobblestone walkways and the sea. It was magical. The hotel is nice, make sure you have a sea view, that’s what makes is special. The balcony’s are small, barely room for one chair but the sound of the sea at night is perfect. The bathroom and...

This is a delicious hotel located nearby the sea, on the rocks, 2 minutes walk from the very center of Giglio Porto. The terrace, where breakfast and dinner are served, is fronting the sea: just beautiful. Very good cooking: fabouls at dinner, however better to have lunch elsewhere because they are not very well organized at 12. Take a room... More
