We reserved this hotel for a nice stay on the Island. It is well-located and has a stunning view. the garden is very nice. The room we had was situated underground. It was damp and had an odd smell. The bathroom was super-cramped. A shower of 70cmx70cm is just too small, even if you're lean as I am. Given the price of the room that was not at all up to expectations. We requested another room but the owner did not think there was a problem nor wanted to help us. The rules in this place are odd too. - We had a big terrace in front but were not allowed to have food on the premises. We did bring some from our travel and it was infested with super tiny ants the next morning (in the room!). - Though the hotel has very few guests and their was nobody while we were there the rules stipulate you have to where a bonnet in the pool (really?) and can't play with a ball or anything. It's not really big enough to swim either, so it's just for relaxing I guess. - You have to order your breakfast the day before and stipulate what you beforehand. We left after the first night as we had slept very badly and found the room and the ridiculous rules unacceptable. Though the owner was going to be there at 9AM, We left around 9h30 without seeing him.…
My partner and me stayed in this beautyful and relaxing place for one week. Located a short drive up the hill next to Porto Azzuro you can relax and calm down right away after busy days at the beach. The room we stayed in had a wonderful view over the sea, was clean and relatively new renovated. As the resort has 7 rooms only the chance is very high to have an amazing „private“ dinner on the terrace with a delicious fish 4 course menu I can highly recommend. Breakfast freshly served with your choice of eggs,coffee,fruits etc. It covers all wishes for sure. Overall - we definitely will come back! Thank you for the very nice Stau we enjoyed very much!

Nothing to complain! The room was clean and beautiful. We also had a large terrace for relaxing evenings. The pool area was clean and well campt, with a nice view on the harbor. All together the site was very well maintained. Breakfast was amazing. Both the staff and the owner were very attentive, they took care of all the little things. The location was quiet and well situated. By car it takes you around 5 minutes to Porto Azzuro, by feet about 25 minutes. Though, at night we would not recommend going by feet. We would in any case recommend a car.
We recently spent a wonderful 2 nights at Casa degli Ulivi. Hosts Alberto and Claudia couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. We had the balcony room with absolutely magical views over the harbour and hills beyond. Porto Azzurro is a great, buzzy little port in the evenings, and the B and B was a calm and aesthetic retreat after days out exploring the island. We loved the whole feel of the place. Dinner on the airy, panoramic terrace on our first night, cooked by Omar, was a creative delight with plenty of local produce and seafood to introduce us to the best of Elba's cuisine. Breakfasts were lovely too, and our room was tastefully and comfortably furnished. We'd recommend the place very highly.
We arrived in a storm. Not easy to find the place. It's not realy a 'resort'' more a small haven of tranquility. Definitely not within walking or bus distance from Porto Azurro but who cares when you can have a 4course meal prepared by Homer. His sense of taste and aesthetic was totally brilliant. The best food I have tasted in a long time. The room was lovely with a big window looking over the bay, it was just great to relax by the pool and in the garden then go out on trips to the multitude of beaches on this wonderful island. We moved on to Tuscany and it was full of Americans, I loved the fact that ELBA seemed to be off the map for most Brits and Americans.
