North of very expensive Forte dei Marmi & nothing close by, i.e. no evening passiagata; you are 'locked' to the hotel & the the sea.
A warm arrival with welcome prosecco (flat!) & a nice 'sea view' room with terrace. Pool & gardens are splendid. WiFi only worked in the hall and needed daily impenetrable codes. Then you need to complain that the WiFi isn't working & they find a way to switch it on.
Choice of inside dining room or garden dining & you might even be invited to eat in the conservatory to escape the kids.
Friendly helpful reception girls. Full/Half board guests eat off a comprehensive table d'hote menu changed every 2 days. The a la carte diners are treated preferentially & I don't just mean the food.
Food pretty good & substitutions allowed (I had asked for special diet, but no-one ever remembered unless I asked!), but earliest dinner from 8.00pm & takes a minimum of 2 hours.
Cheapest wine €25 and a long list of very expensive wines. 'Wine is my passion' said Ciro the owner. Perhaps he meant the wine profit. His sister Francesca smiled daily...
Family owned & run with the Mama in the background.
The hotel recommended the beach club Bemi a little further along, but as they could give NO reason, we went to Carol with WiFi. The best beach club & the best beach club lunches we have experienced in 15 years. The owner Christina was a joy to deal with. She should have been at €35 a day for an umbrella, 2 chairs & 1 bed. Shame the sea was so rough for 7 days that we couldn't swim in it!
Handy if you have a car for coastal or hilltop excursions & Pietrasanta has much improved in the last 15 years!
Could be nice for a family or honeymoon couple with plenty of money. I think you need a car.
