"Good hotel great service food doesn't match."
My wife and I just had a week at the hotel half board. Very good adult only hotel room overlooking the golf course good size. Staff are exceptionally friendly and go out of their way to please including the manager. Unfortunately the chef doesn't season any food and the fish is over cooked and dry. Meat is the same. The only good meal we had in a week was the Paella. The head waiter is an extremely rude man who doesn't accept that the food could be substantially improved. At best the food is mediocre chewy and tasteless.
"ANOTHER WONDERFUL STAY AT THE ELBA PALACE"
Our ninth stay at the Elba Palace. Over the years some of the staff have changed, but the high standards have been maintained Excellent location for a winter golf break,only 15 mins. from the airport. Staff are very helpful and food is excellent with a wide choice to suit all tastes. Golf course is in good condition and challenging.
"Family place, clean pools and decent rooms"
Stayed in February for 1 week. Hotel is about 7 -10 minutes for airport by car. Rooms: Our room had two beds pushed together. Bathrooms are blue and clean, there is a bidet. Every room has a balcony with table and 2 chairs. Rooms are clean and the house keeping is very good. Thank you housekeeping! Fridge: There is a small coffee table with kettle for tea and small mini bar fridge which is empty enough to fit in large bottles of water. Supermarket is 3 minutes’ walk from the beach side. Situated in the shopping mall. There is also a Golf club nearby but I would say for maximum 3 days of golfing. Kids: Our daughter (age 10) was happy with group of children and the staff from (Kids Club) was helpful and engaging. The "Water Pilates" was great and fun! Animals: They have a “cat café” which is a small, tidy and neat cat shelter where hotel guests can leave proper cat food in bags (you can purchase at the supermarket) or bottles of water. It is kept very clean and there are about 10 cats that make use of the place. We loved it because animals are looked after and cared for. I wanted to purchase anti-flea drops to treat all the cats, but unfortunately this is obtainable by the vet only, so I hope that sometimes they are given those treatments as well. Food: was OK - typical for the island hotels, given that majority of the food is brought to the island. Half board is maybe bit more interesting as it gives you a freedom to explore the local restaurants. Staff at the hotel restaurant was competent and caring. We had a great treat during Valentine day. We had only 1 gray day and the rest was just sunny and warm. In overall very nice and pleasant hotel.
"Perfect for Golf"
We enjoyed our visit in the Elba Palace Golf in December very much. Its a quite place to relax and play golf. The food was very good, the wine menu offered a broad range of Spanish wine regions. Our suite was nice, but for us too dark - even in the day. We missed a deck chair at the balcony. The bath room was very big, but the shower very small - her we see some potential to improve. The hotel Offers free shuttle to the beach and the shopping area. The pool is heated. The golf course was well maintained, but some holes are quite narrow between housing areas or water channels.
"Immaculately maintained, fabulous staff but let down by mediocre food"
There are plenty of good things about this hotel if you have come to play golf. Give it a miss if you haven't. Good course, always busy and you will have to pair up if you are a 2 ball. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the barman is superb, working constantly at breakneck speed!! The hotel is immaculately clean and the rooms are large with a wonderfully comfortable large bed and big bathroom. The hotel attracts an older crowd so don't expect anything too lively. The food, however, is a big disappointment. The menu promises much but everything lacked flavour, it's as if the chef won't use salt or seasoning. I do appreciate its difficult catering for a multi national crowd but serving bland food and tough meat isn't acceptable. The area around the hotel doesn't have much going for it and there are much nicer parts of the island to visit. Having said all that if you are looking for an elegant hotel with a view to relaxing and playing some golf you could do a lot worse.
