Positive Reviews

Huge and well-appointed bathrooms

The bathrooms are huge enough and extremely clean as expressed by the guests. The showers have strong pressure and the water supply of hot water is consistent. Furthermore, the toiletries are readily replenished and have excellent qualities so you can definitely have a refreshing bath.

Gorgeous surroundings & spectacular sea views!

Elba Costa Ballena Beach & Thalasso Resort's grounds are well-kept and the beach is so near. Guests praised the gorgeous landscaping and majestic sea views offered by the resort. In addition, guests can enjoy the stunning views of the golf course or pool area from the rooms' cosy private balconies.

Rejuvenating treatments at the luxurious spa

Guests feel delighted because the procedures at the spa are carried out professionally using high-end products and purified seawater. Moreover, the ambience is airy and elegant so you will surely feel relaxed and energised.

Negative Reviews

Paid yet secure parking

Guests are a bit disappointed because the on-site parking fee is expensive, but is secure and spacious enough. Guests can also opt to use the free public parking areas near the resort to save money.

Breakfast foods seem ordinary and unsatisfactory

Many negative reviews talked about the breakfast being ordinary because the eggs are not cooked well, the fruits are not so fresh, and the sausages are too oily. However, there are some eating spots with better food outside the property which you can visit.

Wi-Fi is weak and keeps dropping off

Some guests said that the Internet access in the rooms is slow, as they cannot search for information on Website. However, guests are still able to send email and the Internet access is more stable at the lobby.
