This really is a fantastic hotel on the North West coast of Elba. We travelled from Pisa by Train and bus to Piombino and then Ferry to Elba and then local bus (very cheap) from the port of Portaffario. We rang the the hotel when we got of the bus and they picked us up at the bus stop. Our room although not over big was perfect for the two of us. All the staff are lovely and give excellent service. The food is of a very high standard and we could not fault any meal we had. Would suggest half board as the food is that good. The hotel is situated about half way down the hill from the main road and a path goes from the hotel through the gardens down to the beach. If you would struggle with hills this is not the pace for you. We will definitely go back again as we fell in love with the Hotel and Elba. Constructive comments to hotel - The WIFI was a bit of a pain as you had to get a username and password which you had to log in everytime you went on and it was very slow. The hotel cat prowled about outside which is OK if you like cats.

Room Tip: Choose room with a view ora Bungalow if a family

First I have to mention that I never actually was a guest of the hotel. However my mother was staying there during the last week. It also occured that mother's day was during the same time that my mother stayed at the Gallo Nero. I thought, I might give it a try and ask them whether it is possible to arrange some flowers. I was suprised how fast I got an answer and even more surprised how nice and positive it was.

They assured me they can arrange something for me and even offered to make a bouquet from their own garden flowers for free. Everyhting worked out perfectly and my mom was extremely happy.

This was just excellent customer service! And I was not even a customer there!

They made it really, really easy for me to suprise my mother!
Thank you very much for that!!!

Wonderful place with great staff & dining facility. A beautiful walk to the beach through garden with flowers and fruit trees. The beach is just the right size with two restaurants and 2 shops, it is a small village with great atmosphere. The hotel had all the services and made sure that we have everything and more. Recommended without hesitation!

Lovely stay at Gallo Nero. The views are beautiful. We stayed in a room in the garden area. It states it can hold 4 people. But it really is just one larger room with a small bathroom. Wouldnt recommend it for more than two people. It has its own balcony with a view of the harbor and the garden. The prices are reasonable and it is far from fancy but very nice and very relaxing. We took wine we had purchased in tuscanny, went to town and got cheese from a local shop and had wine and cheese evenings on our balcony. The staff is very friendly. The location is not maricana- it is actually marina del campo farther down then maricana. But there is a nice beach and nice little trails. You can shore dive from the beach.

Room Tip: I like larger rooms so picked the room for 4 for just the two of us. It was just one room- big enoug...

We stayed 6 nights at Gallo Nero in the heart of the season. Although a little deserted (not a lot of action going on in St. Andrea), we loved our stay. We particularly loved the terrace with the great view. We were staying on halfboard basis and we just adored the food and the wines!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Smeraldo Nel Blu, wich had a lovely balcony with view over the ocean.

A group of friends had planned on staying for 3 nights but we liked the place so much that we stayed for a fourth night. We got the bus from Portoferraio to St Andrea and we rang the hotel from the bus stop and they collected us. So from the time we arrived at the hotel the staff couldn't have been more helpful and made us feel very welcome. Our room was fantastic and we had a very large balcony which had a great view of the sea. We took the local bus (once we had deciphered the timetable) and visited Campo di Marina & Marciano. I would highly recommend hiring a car as the bus service is quite erratic and there seems to be plenty to see on the island. The only negative about the hotel was the lack of choice for meat eaters - veal on three nights. Otherwise the food was great and the chioice of wines were really good.

Room Tip: Ask for room no 5 which is very quiet and has a very big balcony.
