We had heard such great things about this hotel and were sadly disappointed. There is simply nothing to do here. It is located in a remote, difficult to get to place. No towns nearby, no restaurants, no nothing except a pool and a concrete slab that they call the "beach". There are two restaurants. One they call their "gourmet" restaurant.... More

The hotel is built into the hillside with unobstructed views of the Mediterranean practically everywhere. The location would not be a place for someone who has a problem with stairs. Our room required you to climb 67 stairs to get there! In fairness the staff would take you there via cart if you asked. Our room, a suite, was beautiful... More

For years we visit this hotel and it still remains our favorite. We love the suites with their sea views and the splendid beach that takes you back to the old days. Privacy and rest is guaranteed. The service is excellent and the food at the Pelligrill is worth killing for. There is little that can be improved. We shall... More

Like Hotel Posta Vicchia this sister hotel has high service and beauty at highest level. Nad you feel the history and love from first sight. Food, sea, rooms are great. But it's very pricy to live like a moviestar

Hotel Il Pellican strikes all the right notes. The service is perfect, restaurants are all delicious, and the decor is both retro and glamorous. Our comfortable and lovely room had a large terrace with views of the ocean. We enjoyed the beach club and the tennis court. Couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. This is a special and unique property.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The elegant five-star hotel, located in Tuscany's Maremma region, was built in the mid-1960s as a love nest for Michael and Patricia Graham and it is today part of The Leading Hotels of the World. The home, called Il Pellicano as a tribute to the first time the couple met at Pelican Point in California, was initially a club for the Grahams' friends, but was subsequently expanded and opened to friends of friends. However, a few things remained the same: the pleasure of feeling at home and the glamorous and slightly retro atmosphere. The hotel's discrete luxury and the still-rugged Tuscan countryside attract the international jet set. Today, the cottages and the central building are suspended between the sky and the sea, with large rooms, windows and terraces where it's unclear where the indoors end and the outdoors begin. There are pathways and stairways, fragrant gardens and discrete corners, a restaurant with one Michelin stars and three Gambero Rosso forks, a heated sea-water swimming pool, a spa with a sea view to soothe both the body and the soul, and for those wanting to take a dip in the Tyrrhenian Sea, a white platform with chaise longue and immaculate parasols. ... more   less
