This hotel complex centered on a 19th century villa is located in a quiet enclave several kilometers from town. It features a private beach, pool, tennis court, and other features expected of a 5 star resort. That said, the initial impression is of a physical plant that is a little rundown and in need of an infusion of capital --...

Villa Ottone is an amazing hotel of Elba island First, the spot is amazing with its historical garden, its (very long !) private beach and its location. You are in one of the wildest part of Elba island, meaning you are not at all in the crowded part of it. Secondly, the restaurant is simply amazing. Do not hesitate to...

Just arrived back from 12 nights at Hotel Villa Ottone, a beautiful setting but remote - a car is a must to reach other parts of the island and get more choice of restaurants. A 1.5km journey cost us 28 euros each way by taxi. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable, the shower had good power...

Beautiful beach location. We had locally produced beer in the beach bar and got complimentary olives. My first olives after 4 days on Elba (!). We had a room in the annex building from the 70s, which felt slightly dated but the retro jacuzzi was fun! Dinner was average, not good value for money. September 2015.

Reviewed 31 August 2016 via mobile

This hotel has a fabulous location but has seen better days. It's slightly shabby but not shabby chic and doesn't merit a five star rating by any standard of the word. I'm afraid that it's closer to three. We enjoyed the location but the stay was initially spoiled by a loud wedding outside our room until 1am. I give the...

This is a wonderful hotel for families, a magnificent old house and gardens with really good food and facilities. One of the best hotels on the island in a great location. Highly recommended. The di Mario family run hotel deserves a visit, if only for a drink at sunset from the terrace of the villa.

Just spent a great short break in Villa Ottone, a beautiful historic villa in a stunning location. We stayed in adjoining rooms on the second floor. Ours had truly spectacular views of the bay while the kids' room looked into the garden. The first-floor rooms are bigger and have balconies so knock yourself out if you can afford it. This...
