A simple but comfortable hotel with a warm welcome and smiling staff everywhere. The room is quiet,clean and spacious. The bed is very comfortable. The restaurant is highly recommended with top quality seafood and good cuisine. We had spaghetti alle vongole and lobster spaghetti and they are one of the best we have ever eaten. The waitresses of the restaurant... More

This hotel offers a quiet, peaceful location that would appeal to anyone not seeking shops, bars, clubs etc. For these you need to travel by car. The rooms are simple but comfortable, the pool sufficient and the location beautiful. It is the location that was its main attraction to me. The only option, other than to travel, for eating is...

I have just spent several days at the Hotel Mare. What a wonderful experience. I felt as if I was staying with family and friends. The position of the Hotel is wonderful, overlooking the Magnificent Portoferraio town. The restuarant is too in an ideal setting just on the seafront . The food was delicious and I had half board and... More

We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights last week and it was a lovely relaxing few days. Getting to the hotel was a little difficult with there not being many buses leaving either the water taxi (which had finished before we arrived) or a taxi which we ended up taking which was 25 euros. Once we arrived at the... More

We stayed at Hotel Mare for four nights in June, 2012. On arrival by water-taxi, I was surprised to find that the village of Magazzini in which the hotel is located essentially consists of the hotel, the hotel restaurant, the hotel shop and a couple of houses. As such, if you are without a mode of transport, as we were,... More

We stayed in one of the rooms with a sea view, and the sea view across the bay to Portoferraio with its buildings, lighthouse and the to and fro of passenger ferries is really worth it.

We had four nights here, the first night in a room overlooking the car park which was perfectly adequate; for the other three nights we were in a larger room, recently renovated and with a large terrace overlooking the sea. As noted by another reviewer, it is worth trying for a room with a sea-view. The restaurant, where we had... More
