“Hotel Sant Andrea - beuatiful garden with excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Very nice appartment, but quite hot during nights (even in early September), so we had to sleep on the big sofa in the groundfloor of the appartment (but the sofa was really very good to sleep). Excellent breakfasts and dinners. Beautiful garden where you can enjoy reading books, drink wine or chat with your darling. We fully recommend this hotel, especially for couples without children (no pool, no playground). The beach is in reasonable distance, about 20min to walk, but if you are lasy, there is a hotel buss that goes to the beach several times a day.
Another value is that this hotel is environmentally-friendly; organic food, solar panels, water saving...

We had booked one week here for our honeymoon, and (though we had phoned the hotel and emailed them twice in advance to ask for a nice room), sadly upon arrival we were allocated one of the smallest rooms with twin beds and no balcony. We didn't expect too much from the service, recognising it was a 3 star hotel, but there wasn't even fruit/wine in the room, which could have been a nice gesture. Only after we complained 3 times did they try to find us a bigger room and it turned out the hotel also has a cottage, which is more spacious but 2 star style. This was never mentioned in our early queries, which were met with a flat "No".
The dinner was good, but not amazing compared to what else is on offer in Tuscany.
We actually left the next morning because of the bad service and small room, choosing to upgrade to a better hotel. However, I should say the gardens were beautiful and it probably would have been alright for a normal holiday, as it was a reasonable price, just not for a special occasion.

We stayed at Hotel Sant'Andrea for 3 nights during a 3-week vacation to the Spanish, French, and Italian rivieras. The beautiful and peaceful surroundings provided a wonderful vacation from our vacation! We booked their "sea and flowers" package, which included two-story, loft-style accommodations with a sea view, fresh flowers, and half-board (breakfast and dinner). The room was spacious and comfortable, with a gorgeous view from the balcony. (Note: the doors to the balcony must be completely closed for the air conditioning to work!) The gardens are peaceful and relaxing, with plenty of chaises and nooks to sit and enjoy the amazing views of the sea. The free internet service, which is provided in 3-hour increments using an access card, is available in the common areas, including the garden, and also worked on our balcony. The breakfasts and three-course dinners were delicious. The staff were polite and helpful, although there seemed to be some preference for Italian speakers (which makes sense given that it's Italy). Don't expect that everyone here will speak English. A few people on staff speak some English, so we got by on that, hand gestures, and a few Italian phrases that we cobbled together. The local beach is a few minutes' drive from the hotel, but we had a rental car, so it was not a problem. The hotel also offers occasional shuttle service to beach if you don't have transportation of your own. Overall, we had an amazing stay and hope to return again in the future.

Family-owned hotel provided personal attention. The room was small but clean and well-maintained. The hotel is in good location, a bit far from the beach, but has excellent views of the sea and hills. Breakfast was sumptuous. Internet service not available in room, and patchy in reception area. Overall, I had a wonderful stay at the hotel.
