We had a an upgraded room and it was still on the small side. Very modern and clean with a hip vibe. Hotel could not have been located better.

The staff was very nice but could have been a little more helpful when asked for recommendations.

Pool was beautiful and the beach was just as nice.

This hotel has it all! It is cool, modern, clean and the people are so accommodating. The entire staff is friendly and warm! The rooms are nice, not huge, but totally adequate. This hotel is exactly what forte del marmi needed. All the other hotels are charming and older..this is where to be!! The bicycles are free the staff will drive you at night..if you don't feel like walking..Totally ignore the previous post from the disgruntled travel agent..I almost changed my reservation after reading that..and i would have missed one of the greatest stays in my life! ..the rooftop bar is so much fun..is any place perfect ? This is not cheap, but it is great value ..IF this is your price point..if you are not spending these prices..I would stay at the Ritz forte del Marmi.. A four star clean hotel, with a great location..I looked at all the competing hotels in this price range while i was in forte...this was by far the BEST! And the beach was included in my stay. This is huge in FDM as it's 150 euros per day. If you like cool, clean, modern and a real 5star hotel..you will not be disappointed...and it's so much prettier than the web page

I came to this hotel for 3 nights in August 2011, the hotel is in a prime location of Forte Dei Marmi, close to the centre but far enough away to give a feeling of privacy. The rooms are well appointed and come with your own wine frindge, but what makes this hotel unique is the amazing rooftop bar/restaurant and the pool. There are no other hotel or bars in the area that offer the same level of service and view within the surroundings of a modern design oriented hotel.
The accomodation is not cheap but you do pay for the exclusive location and unique style of the hotel, something that is not available anywhere else in the area, I come to Versilia every year and this is the 1st truly design hotel in this region, if classic italian hospitality is what you are looking for this is not the place for you, but if you want sleek furnishing and a Miami style pool experience the Principe is your place.

As the owner of a travel agency I am fortunate to have have stayed at most of the top hotels in the world and was looking forward to this relatively new arrival in a favourite resort. Mind you, the price for their cheapest room even after my travel agent discount was an eye watering Euro 940 (£827, $1,344) per night EXCLUDING breakfast. On arrival we were informed that unless we wished to pay for hotel valet parking we would have to park in the street, BUT due to some nonsense about "legal responsibility" they would not do this for us.
The room turned out to be small, not a single work of art on the walls and absolutely no shelves or drawers to put any clothes in. The architect thought it more suitable to use the space for a "private wine fridge". The view was that of an ugly building next door. We complained but the hotel staff, very ungraciously, said there were no other rooms available. The bathroom was designed for disabled people and much as I applaud the provision of such facilities they do make the space available considerably less than otherwise and I was not warned that the room would thus have much different bathroom facilities than those advertised. We spent one night during which the water stopped working and the shower we had in the morning was more like a light drizzle. We complained again but this time they did not even bother to get back to us. We decided we had had enough and spoke to front office manager who simply repeated that they had no other rooms available. We responded that we would then have to check out and she said nothing. Upon packing up all our bags I came to settle for the one nights stay and was presented with a bill for the four nights booked. No amount of arguing with her or indeed the hotel manager swayed them. In the end all they were prepared to do was provide a "voucher" for three free nights at some time in the future "subject to availability".
So, if you are looking for a grossly over-priced, uncomfortable and rudely staffed hotel be sure to pay this place a visit. You will not be disappointed.

This is a brand new hotel in the lovely beach town of forte dei marmi on the tuscan coast. It is a small, modern boutique property, part of the leading hotels group. Besides the state of the art rooms and facilities, tasteful decor, and lovely setting, what stands out is the fabulous, helpful, accomodating staff which was one of the best we have encountered. Truely a pleasure! The service was impeccable! We would definately come back here!

Stayed for a few days with wife as part of trip through Tuscany . Has too be the most overpriced hotel ever. The rooms are no larger than the local Holiday Inn but are 8 times the price. You pay extra for everything even had to pay 150 euros to sit on the beach! Breakfast was included wow! Staff on the whole disinterested and think they are doing you a favor allowing you to pay 1000 euros per night for a box to sleep in. Room had a view of the kitchens at the 2 star hotel next door. Went on to Florence which was excellent and less than half the price.
