This was our second stay this year at the Elba. We had a late arrival and staff had specially arranged for a late buffet for us. Reception staff are excellent, and we had champagne & chocolates in our room. We had asked if we could be near our suite we had in February and they were able to accommodate. Being further away from the main facilities it was very quiet and peaceful. We loved relaxing in the private terrace of the suite, which was generally clean but there were some previous occupants hair in the shower drain! It's a pity there are no drawers, but there is plenty of cupboard space for clothes. The hairdryer is in the bathroom which means a lot of standing for those of us with long hair. It's a shame the safe and nespresso pods cost extra. Breakfast is good and also lunch at the adults only pool. What a pity that smoking is permitted in this food area which marred it for us. Another shame is the plastic chairs in the Adults only restaurant. I notice that the children's restaurant had more comfortable chairs. Also the dress code was not enforced in the Restaurant, which is a shame. Evening food was variable, and with me as a Vegetarian and hubby not liking fish, eating some nights we struggled, but always found something. Overall, a lovely hotel with friendly accommodating staff. With a few changes could probably get 5*. We would definitely return.
