“Good Hotel, Grumpy Breakfast Waiters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had an overall pleasant stay in the summer at this hotel. We were greeted warmly upon arrival; however, despite having specified in our booking that we need neighbouring rooms, and although we had informed the hotel about our children's (young) ages, they had assigned 2 rooms which were afar. We were assured that they were on the same floor though! It took about 30 minutes of negotiating and waiting and watching staff discussions about the matter, but eventually we were given 2 lovely adjoining rooms.

Both rooms had quite large balconies with great views of the surrounding gardens, and were always kept immaculately clean by the very friendly and always smiling housekeeping lady. WiFi connection was free, and the rooms had everything we needed; but we spent most of the day on the beach anyway. I think most of the hotel guests did the same because the pool was quite dead.

Our only complaint was the rather surly young breakfast staff, recruited mainly from what appeared to be students (some from central European countries?) on their summer break. They all looked pretty cheesed off at having had to wake up 'early'. Breakfast tables were not set, and we had to sit down first and then beg for cutlery, etc to be delivered to our table. This didn't make for a nice start to our days.

Other than this, the rest of the hotel employees and managers were mostly professional, friendly and willing to help. They even helped park our car, and paking was free. The garage and the driveway have space for everyone. The lobby is quite chic and comfortable.

The hotel is almost near the the edge of town, close to a (night-time) amusement park which is great for kids; but 10 minutes walk from what I would call 'the edge of town centre', or 20 minutes walk from the very centre of town where it is all happening in the evening. So hiring bikes is a good idea, unless you are planning to drink a lot!

I would stay here again.

Love this hotel. Staff are fantastic and hotel is so comfortable.
Unfortunately I am travelling 'off season' so menu is very limited but what I had tonight was very nice.
If you come to Forte de Marmai - Stay Here

My wife & I had a 2 week stay on a Thompsons holiday at the Logos hotel arriving back on the 16th of June.

My first impression of Forte Dei Marmi as a holiday destination for a 2 week stay was one of dissapointment. This was my first trip to Italy & it seemed to be so un-Italian & not as I had expected. My wife had been to Italy many times & was also surprised by the area.

I guess we were expecting something like Sorrento which it clearly was not.
The surrounding streets had row after row of large Villas which always looked unoccupied.

The view of the beach, which was a short walk from the Hotel, was spoilt by mile after mile of beach Houses.

There were several small bars etc within easy walking distance of the hotel but to go into Forte dei Marmi itself would take a 20 min walk. That said, the area is very level & walking is easy.
We did it most evenings & we are in our 50's but if you have problems walking or you have very young children you really need on an evening to take a taxi.

Getting about during the day...the hotel offers the use of pushbikes at very little cost & as I have already said, the area is very flat with a great cycle track along the beach front. Buses seem to run about one an hour from the main road but we walked the 20 mins to Forte Dei Marmi where we would get a bus to the nearby resort of Viarrgio. From there you could catch a train to any where in Italy, cheaply & very frequently. We visited Lucca, Pisa, Florence & Porto Fino (sorry for the spelling mistake).



Okay thats enough about the area, now for the Hotel!

We found the hotel to be great in every way..The reception staff were amongst the most helpful we have found anywhere we have travelled.

Our room was very good & quite large..try & get a room on the 2nd floor as these seem to be amongst the largest. (we rang the hotel about a week before & requested it after reading a recent review on tripadvisor) The hotel also give you free bottled water in your room each day as well as the tea making etc.

The only problem we had was with the aircon but this was sorted.but it seemed to be controlled from the reception & would be switched off sometime in the night each night!

Breakfast was ok, typically continental. Evening meal was very good with the dining room staff amongst the best we have encountered. As the weather warmed up we were able to have dinner in the hotel garden which was lovely.

The hotel swimming pool was never crowded & we could always get a sun lounger regardless of the time of day. The Thompson rep was very good often coming out to the pool to make sure everyone was happy.

We also had two days on the beach at the hotels beach house. this costs 30 euros each day for 2 sunbeds 2 deckchairs etc.etc. There are many beach sellers there but I found them good fun & enjoyed the bartering with them & found myself looking forward to what the next one had to sell. My wife now has enough handbags to open her own shop!


To sum up....

The hotel was first class along with all the employees especially the dinning room staff. They even came out to see us off on our coach back to the airport in the morning.

We have no complaints as we really loved the hotel, but the resort came up short on the Italian feel but was probably very Italian for the Italians if you get my meaning (beach houses lots of them) Why any one would want to stay in the same resort 10 times is baffling.

Would we come back...thats a difficult one as we never visit the same place again as lifes too short..but for this hotel we would make an exception. Thank you Logos Hotel xx

Room Tip: Dont forget! ring & ask for a room on the second floor they should be bigger

GREAT HOTEL. Beautiful area and this is a great boutique hotel. Always has some quirky art in the lobby but this adds to the charm.
Staff are excellent, rooms are very good standard and modern even if you get allocated a small one. Food is good and breakfast has good selection.
Parking is a little limited but the hotel staff always work hard to help you if your car is blocked in.

Just returned from here (23.6.12) on a Thomson's holiday. It is a lovely hotel. Luxurious, friendly and amazing food. We don't eat meat but this was not seen as a problem. We only had to mention it once. Nice pool area - we were told beforehand that we needed to rent the towels and wear swimming hats but this was out of date - towels at the poolside were free and no hat needed! Charming staff. And the mattress was the most comfortable I have slept on for a long time - I want one!
We used the local buses and trains to visit Pisa, Lucca and Pietrasanta - all worth it and the travel was incredibly economical. You need to change trains to go to Lucca and our first train was delayed but they held the second train for us.
We were disappointed with the lack of a seafront. It is just miles of private beaches and you can barely see the sea. However the hotel is only 5/10 mins walk from the public beach.

Room Tip: There is no view of the sea but the hotel is in a quiet location

Hetal is smart and comfortable, nice small bedrooms, good pool with service.
But the rates are high and access to their private beachh, about 400m away, is an extrat cost, $75 per day for a chair.

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Tuscany and we didnt regret our choice of hotel it actually really added to the overall experience of our holiday. The hotel is situated a little out of the town centre but amazing location for the public beach just around the corner which in itself was beautiful especially with the backdrop of the mountains which seemed to keep the temperature cooler and so pleasant. Forte town centre was lovely and is walkable (longish but easy) but by far the best way was on the bikes hired at the hotel all along the seafront is a designated cycle path all the way into the town so no worries about traffic and totally flat! There are a handful of bars and restaurants nearer the hotel as well.
The main thing we noticed about the hotel was how peaceful and serene it was to be able to unwind including the lovely pool area. We ate dinner in the amazing and romantic garden setting every night which made the dinners so special we are not normally fans of half board and prefer to find our own meal each evening however this hotel has changed our mind a little and it was so nice to have waiter service and not buffet style dinner. The bar and restaurant team were all really noticeably helpful and friendly always and are a real credit to the hotel.
A lovely hotel which as not too large gave a really personal and professional service they remembered small details right from day one. Would definitely stay again if we are lucky enough.
Only down sides if we had to picky were we did have a very small room and also the internet access was frustrating to say the least the majority of times we tried (gave up in the end) better if you are right in reception but we never managed to get on in the room at all and we were trying to sort out travel arrangements etc . We loved the peace and quiet but dont stay here if you are looking for nightlife and entertainment it is just a beautiful relaxing hotel and in the evening after dinner most people just retired for the evening. (Did love the pianist on our first night tho would have liked to see him again )

Room Tip: Upgrade if you can we had a beautifully decorated room and very clean but very small
