We stayed for 2 days at Cortona Resort and loved the place. The hotel is good value for monay. Great location clode to Cortona, staff very friendly, grounds look great and practical good looking rooms for family with 2 kids. Only remark that could be made is the swimming pool which location is not the most attractive (grass grounds behind... More

My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights whilst touring Italy on honeymoon. I have always wanted to visit Tuscany after watching "Under the Tuscan Sun" & it was just as wonderful as I had imagined it to be. The hotel was beautiful! Set in beautiful grounds, the staff were friendly & helpful & we were upgraded to a... More

Stayed in a two bedroom suite. Spacious, pristine rooms. Wonderful king size bed. Grounds well kept. Great swimming pool. Friendly, attentive staff that doted on my young daughter. Breakfast was always a happy occasion. Dinner was divine. My family and I enjoyed every moment of our stay. Thank you to all the staff.

Stayed 3 nights in March. Nice property with gardens, pool, spa, restaurant. Rooms were clean. Food pleased us. Staff friendly. Hate to say ths, but this is more of a boutique type hotel than a luxury one. Rooms are most basic. Plastic cups. Average bed and linens. Nothng special. But it is a very nice place, just not luxurious. Hot... More

17 November 2014. Rooms under expectation relative to price in several aspects: Double room with one chair. One fixed hanger, no tissues, small soaps, spa water not warm enough. Only bright spot is the warm smile of the receptionist.

Had a great one-week stay at the Villa Aurea / Cortona Resort & Spa. Excellent and discreet service from the entire team, nice spa & pool facilities, lovely and very comfortable room. Restaurant offerings could be a little bit more diverse but they are fine and quite reasonably priced. Quiet and elegant are two adjectives that fit this hotel/resort extremely... More

We only had breakfast which was very nice but typically italian - sweet pastries etc. my error but I thought a 5 min drive from Cortona would be a 20 min walk approx - as it is all uphill it is easily 45 mins on a narrow busy...

Although the place was physically beautiful and very convenient to Cortona, I had reserved here a suite, a double and a room for a family with two children, 4 and 1 year old. We were 5 adults and two children. I was never told that children were not welcome. There was a pool and a spa so it matched exactly... More

The main building is a typical Tuscan villa recently restored to a high standard The room we had was quite spacious and had great views over the resort's park. The bathroom was big and of course spotless clean. Staff is very... More

Overall I loved Cortona Spa and Resort. The staff at this location made us feel welcome, were always professional and hospitable. Best espresso I had in Italy. Not sure why this location was so good. Food at the restaurant was very good. Off the beaten path a bit, needed to use a taxi to get to and from to see... More
