“Love this hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We stayed at this fantastic hotel in May 2013. Everything was perfect! The staff at the check-in desk was so personal and service minded. The interior design is beautiful! It´s a combination of Provence, Toscany country side but also Italian seaside. I loved the style - such a luxury feeling. We had booked two rooms as we travelled with kids. Both of the rooms were very comfortable and good in size. Also the interior design in the rooms made me feel that we were close to the ocean. It´s a nice white/beige seaside feeling in the rooms. Everything is nice and clean. All the rooms at the groundfloor had a nice little private terrace facing the garden and the pool. Another positive thing is the location of the hotel. It´s located in a quiet neighborhood so you don´t get disturbed by the nightlife when you are about to sleep yet it is walking distance both to the beach or the "downtown" area. There are bikes at the hotel that they let you borrow. Last but not least...the breakfast! Yummi! You could have everything you ask for. The setting was beautiful with a view over the garden. Once again the staff in the morning were also so service minded and friendly. We will definately go back to this hotel as soon as we get a chance and I can recommend this hotel to all of you! This is a hotel for both romantic weekends or with kids as they have a beautiful garden with a nice pool.

Beautiful boutique hotel in great location. Like stepping into a hidden luxury retreat. Amazing rooms, food, service and pool. Easy to see why number 1 on here! You have to really make an effort to wander out into the town

The reviews are superb and well deserved. What a great hotel. Constant smiling service.
Breakfast is just wonderful with a spread that I would say is the best I have ever had.
The standard of food for lunch is also great and delicious.
A nice touch, free afternoon tea and lots of other things. Great pool and gardens.
Would definitely return!

We have stayed many times at this small hotel over the past 10 years despite the rooms being rather cramped. It has been extended by the addition of some extra rooms and suites which means this quiet hotel has become rather busier than it used to be. However the standards of housekeeping are still extremely high and all the staff are most helpful and polite. The buffet breakfast is excellent and lunches too are delicious. Sometimes the hotel seems to be over run with children and babies - this is a pity as the hotel is in a quiet location with limited space available which does mean that it can be disturbing for those people who have gone there for a quiet rest. The pool and gardens are delightful but there are insufficient umbrellas around the pool area and also in the gardens to cope with all the guests wanting shade from the hot sun a matter which I did take up with the owners of the hotel whilst I was there and they said that they were unaware of this until I had brought it to their attention. The deck chairs and directors chairs around the pool are most uncomfortable for relaxing in and more sun loungers are required . The local beaches have become very expensive and this has resulted in guests choosing to stay and relax around the pool area . The owners Beatrice and Elena are aware of the changing needs of the outside space and have promised to remedy this soon. The busy pool area becomes quite messy during the day as there is no pool attendant on hand to clear up after the guests coming and going.

Room Tip: All the rooms are small in this hotel with the exception of the suites.

Dear Mrs eny_13,

first of all we would like to thank you for the appreciations you have expressed regarding our Villa.
Our main objectives are fulfilled when we can see that our guests enjoy our villa year after year.
It is our guests toghether with our friendly staff, the exclusive location and the peaceful garden that we are able to create this unique atmosphere.
As for the pool area, it is generally never crowded, since most of our guests often decide to spend their day by the beach. Though we have now provided, as requested, more umbrellas, we decided to mantain the director chairs which are in harmony with the style, history and the true essence of Forte dei Marmi.
Anyway we will be pleased to welcome you in our villa next year, with the usual friendly service to assist you in anything you need.

Our kindest regards,

Elena and Beatrice

I stayed at this hotel based on reviews and it's ranking in the area. But, I was not prepared to enjoy my stay quite as much as I did. Where do I begin...

The service was outstanding. From the moment we arrived, we felt completely relaxed and taken care of. The staff: incredible. Everyone there was immediately available to do anything you needed. Fabrizia and Aliza were two ladies that helped make our stay so nice. It was like being at a spa.

The breakfast spread is out of this world. Amazing fruit, cheese and meats, pastries, salmon, yogurt, cereal, eggs etc if requested. We were completely spoiled. Just when we thought we were spoiled at breakfast... We came back from an afternoon/evening out and ordered a glass of wine. To our surprise, they brought out a plate of appetizers! We were actually a bit hungry because we made a poor choice for dinner (no fault of anyone at VRI). They completely saved the evening. The peaceful grounds, the bird watching, just lovely.

Most of the guests go to the beach or out on the town during the day (who knows why- the beaches cost between €50-200 per day). So we mostly stayed at the pool area. It was very nice and relaxing. And still throughout the day Fabrizia and Aliza were there to offer us whatever we needed.

The area of Forte dei Marmi was just ok in my opinion. It's nice that biking is so easy (which there is a charge per day to rent bikes). The shops were nice, but the best part was the hotel. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I can't wait to return!

This really is a lovely place to stay - great rooms, great staff and wonderful pool area. It also has one of the best breakfasts I have experienced. The only small grumble would be the potential for a bit of noise - it's rather easy to hear what is going in the corridor outside the room, although this did not really affect our stay because our neighbours went to bed and woke at similar times. Strongly recommended.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise try and get them to put you in the right room - its arguably too easy...

This is simply home away from home. The hotel is more of a big villa than a hotel. The rooms are in top shape and very clean, also well maintained. The pool looks amazing and is heated. The breakfast is really top quality, but I think it can use more variety, but really can't complain. The staff treat you in a very friendly way, always with a smile and not a fake one. I would defiantly recommend this place, and I will always return here.
