We stayed 5 nights in this hotel. As the other reviews say, the rooms are a bit on the small side for a four star hotel, but are very clean and many have balconies or outside area. The surrounding gardens are lovely and the overall impression is very verdant - even in mid-september. The reception staff are extremely helpful, though the serving staff leave a bit to be desired. They didn't seem very experienced and took ages to bring us our wine! The deserts were also lacking in imagination - it was as though the chef's training had stopped at deserts as all the other dishes were really good. The hotel was also extremely quiet with no night life whatsoever. By 10 o'clock on a saturday night everyone seemed to have gone to bed!
If you don't have a car this is not a great area to stay if you want to explore the area, which is a rather characterless beach resort. A long walk into Forte dei Marmi, with a very limited bus service (one an hour! and difficult to work out the timetable). If you want to use the trains, they never seem to link up with the buses and cabs are very expensive for the 10 min. trip ranging from 17 euros to 23, depending on the driver. That being said, the trains are reasonably reliable and cheap and it is relatively easy to get to Lucca, Pisa and Florence from Forte dei Marmi or the larger Viareggio, which is up the coast (but this is nothing to write home about either). We were very disappointed with the area on the whole, which as another reviewer said did not feel very 'Italian' and could have been anywhere in Europe!
