i have been going to forte dei marmi for the past 14 years and have stayed in numerous hotels from 3 to 5 stars...some good and some far from it. my daughter and i were so pleasantly surprised at this lovely 3 star property.
the staff were all genuinely charming and helpful. the rooms were small but recently and tastefully redone as were the bathrooms. there were lovely, lush bathrobes and slippers in the room as well.
it is a short walk to both the beach and the center of town and the have bicycles available as well.
we went to their restaurant, l'orsa maggiore, on the beach one evening and it was superb. the decor, the service and the food were exceptional.
