Having read a few very negative reviews before we departed we were seriously concerned and thought of cancelling to book something else, as we wanted this celebration to be as perfect as possible. But thankfully we didnt and enjoyed a... More

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

We stayed some years ago at their 'sister' hotel Gemini at Casole d'Elsa and had been recommended to try the 'new' Aquaviva. Gemini has been quite stylish- a quiet haven in simply stunning Tuscan countryside. Imagine our disappointment then to come a few kilometers down the road to Aquaviva. The countryside is still stunning but we were greeted by the... More
