“Pure Rest and Relaxation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We stayed here following 7 days of touring Rome and Tuscany and couldn't have found a better place to unwind and relax. We were very fortunate to get upgraded to a Junior Suite and it was spectacular. The rooms were very modern and well appointed. We dined in the hotel restaurant 2 out of 3 nights and it was very good. The menu was somewhat limited compared to other restaurants but the food was displayed beautifully and tasted even better. The entire resort was immaculate. We spent most of our time at the private beach instead of the pool but did have lunch there one day and it was very relaxing. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again and hope I get the opportunity to do so in the future.

Room Tip: Definitely spend the money to upgrade to a sea side room...it's worth the view!

Our travel itinerary include a drive from Rome to Milan. We planned several days of driving in Tuscany and along the coast but wanted a hotel off the beaten path but that still provided proximity and access to the coast. We found this hotel in our research as we also travel with a small dog so pet friendly is a must. We stumbled upon this hotel in our search and found the location on the Italian coast to be quiet and quaint. The hotel provides direct access to the beach with lounge chairs and umbrellas as part of the amenities. The town is a small beach front community with restaurants and cafés in walking distance all with very nice servers, staff and owners.

The hotel shows it's vintage but is clean and neat. The staff was very attentive and very well trained. Our room faced the beach with a small balcony and louvered doors enhancing the charm of the coast. The hotel could use a little interior updating but it was a great find and served out needs for a few days.

Room Tip: Request beach/coast facing room.

It was our second time that we stayed at this hotel because of the good and quiet location. There are not similare alternative hotels in the area. The rooms are in good shape and the beds are perfect for a good sleep. We stayed in room #206 with seaview. The wellness with sauna and steambath is big and free. For the thalasso pools you pay extra. There is no self parking inside the hotel area. It can take a long time till you get the car. Breakfast is a good standard. We did ask to sit outside in the fresh air. Everything was ready including the umbrellas. They did refuse to sit outside. The hotel is in general not very flexible and easy going, that's why we think they have old hotel rules. Overall, we like the location and the hotel infrastructure. We were missing modern and opportune services.

Dear Client many thanks for your review and for letting us know about your opinions during your stay.
We were very please to see you again and that you decided to return and spend some relaxing time at Tombolo Talasso Resort.
Indeed , our rules have remained the same for certan aspects as during your last saty with us.
We offer a Valet Parking service at no charge for the service and for the parking of the car and we feel that we should provide this service on behalf of our guests and for security reasons of the cars that are parked in our garage.
As you know being a regular guest, our garage is adjacent to our hotel and takes aproximatly 5 minutes to pick up a car and deliver it to our guests....it would be advisable to let the front office know in advance in order to find your car ready at the time requested. It may sometimes happen that if we have several not scheduled requests, that it may take a few extra minutes.

As for having the breakfast terrace not accessable , believe me that it was not a refusal but simply motivated by the fact that the season was still not ideal to open it due to fresh temperature and early morning humidity.....in fact we did finally open the terrace shortly after your departure as the climate improved.

We are happy that overall your experience at Tombolo was to your satisfaction and we look forward to see you again soon.
The Staff from Tombolo sends our best regards.

We stayed here with a business group in April, and it was a shame that it was a bit too cold to enjoy the beach or the pool as both looked great.
The rooms are a good standard (not 5star, but clean and neat and a scent size) but to make the most of the place you should get a sea view room.
Compliments to the barman and the piano player!

This hotel is perfectly located on the Tuscan coast with its own private beach which was superb. The hotel was very clean and well maintained with maid service provided twice daily. The rooms were of a good standard, light airy with good views of the surrounding areas.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and they parked our car for us. One of the big points of the hotel is the spa, which provides a good variety of treatments for both men and women which are reasonably priced.

Overall a very good experience perfectly nestled on the Tuscan coast, due to its location I would advise a car to get here. Whilst you are here it is worth taking a short trip to Bolgheri where the wine and food is to die for.

My family and I just spent a full week at Tombolo Talasso.
We realized pretty quickly that you don't go to Tombolo because of the rooms (pretty small and not 5 star worth), the pool (crowded and the shady spots are rare), the food (except for the special buffets which are excellent, the food is of industrial quantity and quality) or the horrible wifi connection. No! you go to Tombolo because the private beach is heaven : huge and empty most of the time. One of the best we have been to in the Mediterranean. Very rare in the region. Pure luxury!!! And because of the service. From the cleaning ladies and the parking guys to the reception people (Giulia, Chiara and Nicoletta) and of course the Manager (very present and always happy to provide great advice), You will find a wonderful team who will make your stay very special.

The Talasso resort is a very nice full service family oriented resort. The private beach is wonderful and well maintained. The resort itself seems rather new and well maintained. We had a two bedroom suite which was extremely comfortable. The restaurant was nice and had a lot of fresh seafood. Service was excellent. One constructive comment: the Wi-Fi was extremely slow and dodgy.

Room Tip: We had a two bedroom suite on the main floor. It was spacious and very comfortable.
