“Best location and staff but not 4 star.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

This hotel was not 4 Star as was expected. The room was basic, no free wi- fi, no coffee making facilities, but the staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly, especially the young guy on reception. My husband fetched coffee from the restaurant every morning so it did help.
We were here for a week end of June and walked everywhere in Forte dei Marme. It is close to town centre with their lovely restaurants, across the road from the beach and more restaurants.
Children can be noisy around the pool, especially when you don't bring your own or grandchildren. We could only watch news as no other channels were in English. We took the train from Viareggio and went to Florence which is always a highlight.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room with a view so you need to be in front but higher up.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

This is the most friendly hotel we have ever stayed at. We were made most welcome by Director Esther and her team. The reception staff dealt with all our travel requests for bus and train times very pleasantly and helpfully. The location of the hotel was excellent, across the road from the beach and only five minutes walk from the town centre.. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean. The meals were very good and I would recommend going for half board as for the little extra cost you received a four course meal. The one extra I would have liked to have was a more comfortable chair in the bedroom - one with arms. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing south (towards the Atlantic Hotel)

Best service I have ever experienced in a hotel! The beach is just nextdoor. As well as downtown Forte dei Marmi (which is quite posh). The rooms are what you can expect from a 4 Star medeterranian hotel. But I dont care, with the service they gave us they should get an extra Star! Would gladly stay here again and reccomend this hotel to anyone

We stayed in the Grand hotel in June 2012, and we were very glad we have chosen this hotel:

- the location was excellent, near to the beach, the city center,..
- the hotel and the swimming pool were very clean
- the food was delicious, and we had the choice between different dishes in the morning and evening
- and most important: the personnel were very friendly and helpful!

=> a real recommendation!

I stayed here last week with my sister and loved it. The location is excellent, the hotel staff were very helpful. The buffet breakfast was very good with a lot ov different variations. I would recommend the hotel to anyone as it Is near the beach, shops and restaurants. I am already planning my next trip.

My sister and I really liked this hotel. Our rooms were clean and the cleaning service was really good. The breakfast was nice and grand.Its the near sea and very near the shops.

I would recommend it.

Room Tip: We were to the front of the hotel and I liked the view from the balcony!

This hotel is not a must. Rooms are ok, but nights are very uncomfortable due to lots of noises all around the place. Service is ridiculous, waiter even does not know which is a water and which is a wine glass. Pool has no ambiance and please don't look too close for dirt.... Menues where not even canteen like and breakfast was poor, no variety at all, no fresh fruit, coffee was just not to drink. We went on a coach tour, so the price was fair, but I would never in my life pay the full price asked, besides the beach is not free, they want to charge you even if you arrrive after 5.30 p.m! and not a bit but 25 Euro! per person! Avoid this place if you can, there are better ones I am sure

Room Tip: rooms on the back side of the hotel might be less noisy than those facing street an park (with peopl...
