Precious pool, beautiful sights from every room, everything full of flowers... Breakfast is Ok but not great. We had a situation with mosquitos in the room, but... More

Stayed here as part of a tour group. Was concerned having read reviews, but pleasantly surprised. The rooms were large and spacious. The bathrooms actually had a bath. One room had a LCD TV and the other had an old TV so this supports previous feedback that the TV's are being upgraded - but I didn't go to Tuscany to... More

Best hotel we stayed at in Tuscany. Views, staff and meals are wonderful. While traveling in Tuscany we wanted to eat, take cookery classes and explore. This was a win. When we requested even other places to dine, directions and shopping mall indications the staff was amazing. So glad we booked here.

Two years ago we came to Aquaviva and yet when we walked in we were greeted as if we came every year. I had emailed our reservation requesting the same room we had on our first visit and it was beautifully cooled for our arrival.

Stayed here overnight towards the end of July this year. First impressions were of the beautiful surroundings, it really is situated in a lovely spot with fantastic views. Unfortunately that's where the positives end. The hotel is very, very dated. It was like stepping back into the 1970s. The attitude of the staff member I encountered was also a throwback... More

I stayed here for one night in July 2013 and had one of the worst hotel experiences I've ever had. Our room had a broken aircon unit which only pumped out warm air, and made a loud ratting noise. The beds in our room were wretched - uncomfortable and made awful creaking noises whenever you moved. As a result, I... More
