We very much enjoyed our stay at Boutique Hotel Ilio - very comfortable hotel in a great position - walking distance to the beach but better still close to the Coti Piane and Cotoncello cliffs which are just incredible for swimming and snorkeling. Service was great, breakfast very nice, staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel garden is just beautiful. Biggest problem we faced was Wifi which was not great but given we were in Elba to holiday it was ok not to have great Wifi access. Would highly recommend as a place to stay

Room Tip: We had a fantastic seaview from our

Buongiorno and thank you so much for writing this beautiful review.
It is strange that you mentioned our Wifi like a problem. We have 11 antennas for internet connection around the property , and the signal arrives well also on the beach , that dists 300mt . A few days ago our guests from Ireland wrote here that it is a great connection , we provide 50 Mega for the connections and have 2 provider ( 1 is a reserve)
However, if should happen to some other guests, you hav only to come to the reception and we will resolve every problem. We hope to see you again in our hotel for another nice holiday .

So for our first stay on Elba (we will go back), we chose the Hotel Ilio. I had some concerns about the logistics of getting to the far side of Elba, but having used Plane, Train, Boat, and Bus to get to Sant Andrea, we were finally at our destination.
The staff on arrival were very friendly, and offered us a drink to relax whilst they sorted out the required paperwork. After we had chilled out for a little while, we were shown to our room. Whilst not in the main hotel building, it is literally a 60 second walk to the bar and breakfast area, and had an excellent SeaView.
The room had everything that we expect from a hotel of this level, and the option of a ceiling fan as well as air conditioning was excellent for us (we don't really like our rooms that cold!).
Everything was spotless, and all worked flawlessly.
We decided to hire a car one day for a tour of the island and to visit a winery. This was simple and all organised by Maurizio. He gave us a great suggestion for an evening meal, and even booked a table at the restaurant for us!
The barman was great as well, remembering our preferred drink choices, before we wandered down to the beach for our evening meals.
The food and wine choices in the bars and restaurants of Sant Andrea was really good, and it was nice to see locals eating and drinking in them too !
The beach is just a short walk downhill from the hotel, and there are a number of options for renting loungers and umbrella's if you want to.
We would highly recommend taking the time to ask for advice from Maurizio and the team, and they will make sure you have a great stay.
ps. don't be scared of hiring a car, the average speeds on the island are remarkably low by Italian standards, and it is a great way to see the sights !

Room Tip: Go for a room with a sea view and balcony. It is great to sit around looking at the boats moored out in the harbour.

This hotel was ideal for us in every way. The location near the incredible beach, the fabulous breakfasts and even the far reaching wifi made our weekend so lovely that we decided had to come back for more only a week later!
Maurizio couldn't have been more accommodating, he even drove us to the bus stop both times as we were without a car and made our stay as comfortable as possible.
The rooms are extremely comfortable and our one had a beautiful view from the balcony.
Also, both weekends we stayed the other guests in the hotel all seemed very nice which I find makes your stay all the more pleasant.
All in all, both weekends were perfect and I couldn't recommend this hotel more!

What a great pleasure for us to read your wonderful words. Despite your young age , you enjoyed the stay in a location , that generally is too relaxing and too quiet for young people. We all do our best to make guests feel well during their holidays in our hotel . Sometimes it is not very easy , but in your case it was simply a joy . We are very much looking forward to welcome you again for another weekend or more.

This is a great place to be, it is comfortable, it is well located, it is very welcoming, a great group of staff, from the top down. The breakfast is more than nice, it is actually great. There is parking available for all the guests. The sea is walking distance from your door. There are nice restaurants nearby. If you wish to adventure out of the area, just ask the manager, he is soooooo helpful that you will enjoy yourself. The idea in this hotel, is to allow you to relax, so take advantage of this place.
I highly recommend it.

What can we ask more, if our friends are happy , we are more happy then them. Not everybody see the hard work and appreciate it . All our staff is very professional and put also passion in its' daily tasks. And when we receive a smile in the morning from our guests , we know that everything is fine.
We hope to see you again next year , or in Fall..

We really loved living at Ilio. There was a relaxing vibe and the small town was perfect. Snorkeling at the cliffs to the left from the beach is a must.
We rented a boat from Daniele which is also a must.
Can't wait to get back and to stay at Ilio again!
