We stayed in that hotel for a week with our two children. This is a very nice hotel in a fantastic location. The plus are clearly the beach and the swimming pool. The beach is extremely nice with beautiful pine trees and a very nice restaurant in some kind of a hut (the beach area is protected and it seems... More

Exellent Hotel, good Food, beautiful private beach with very good lunch buffet. Overall there is no complain. The Service is exellent and very friendly. Ideal time of the year is Juni, because there are few People in the area. We will certainly book for next june.

My family have just come back from our third visit to this wonderful hotel, and I expect there shall be a lot more. The fact that it is noted as a Relais & Chateaux hotel justifies a visit enough; and even though other reviewers may state that it is not a 'normal' R&C hotel, this is by no means a... More

We have just returned from our third visit to this wonderful hotel, and we cannot wait until our next visit. Beautiful beach, kind, courteous service, extremely comfortable accommodation and glorious food - we cannot fault it on any level. One or two other reviewers have felt it is not a "typical" Relais & Chateau (although it was actually the first... More

Criteria to be a Relais Chateau is the basic 5C's. Comfort, Calm, Courtesy, Cuisine and Charm. I am sorry to say that it had only Cuisine and Courtesy as its major pluses . It was extremely noisy. The rooms lacked charm and had a hard bed. It was not comfortable. I expected so much more than what was offered. This... More

why fly hours and hours if one of the most beautiful, finest beaches at 6hours by car from home (switzerland). The hotel is located in the very Italian town of Punta Ala where a lot of Italians are on holidays too. Some call Punta Ala the St.Moritz of the beaches. The nearby porto - 10' from the hotel spreads a... More

We have been to Gallia Palace early in June with our 1 year-old daughter. It is ideally located in the Maremma and important touristic towns and villages are easily reachable provided you have a car. The hotel is a nice place to spend holidays in family. The rooms are rather big with a nice terrace. The food is really good... More

We have been staying at this hotel for 28 years!!! I think that says it all. The Family run hotel is unique - it is our 2nd home. The staff are so welcoming and friendly nothing is too much trouble down to the last detail. The beach and beach restaurant is amazing - great food and wines of the region.... More
