“Lovely ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Step back in time into a true, blue-blooded, European seaside resort. Negresco is a great place to perch for a while and lap up a holiday experience from a bygone era. Lovely and accommodating staff, good digs and interesting exploring up and down the coast.

Stayed September 2012, traveled with family

Hotel very nice. Super pool, with smaller salt pool (we travelled with a 2 year old).
Restaurant: we ate twice. First time really good, second time, standard. Waiters were really super friendly and nice.
Wifi: is minimum everywhere – room, pool side, restaurant. We asked about it, but for them there was no problem. However it is free and you can connect as you wish which is great – when it worked (and you can connect from all devices, i.e. mobile, laptop)!
Room: very small. Needs up dating with new furniture. We had sea-view which was beautiful. Air conditioning was difficult to set – too hot or too cold.
Overall: Good hotel, finds you a beach as you wish (all beaches expensive anyway) far from center (1kmish). Rented bikes to get around – they should have been free from hotel. If small kids, get a good kid seat on the bike.

Room Tip: Definately choose a sea view - rooms are tiny, and light with view helps enjoy it more.

One week vacation in a very confortable hotel with private beaches across the road (not part of hotel).
We recommend the Villa Gray Bani beach although a bit pricy.

Very confortable room with balcony overseeing the beach and a nice private swimming-pool.

The reception staff are multilingual and very attentive and helpful.
Breakfast is quite complete and can be taken outside on the terrasse.

A glass of Spritz on the balcony at sunset is a real treat.
Most restaurants are located in center of town (a few enotecas as well) and require a 30mn walk or renting bicycles.

TV channels mostly italian with very few english or french channels,
WIFI works well (several servers).
Noiseless central A/C very appreciated .

A great vacation !
Do not miss a visit to Pietrasanta, Montecatini and Carrara very close to Forte.

Room Tip: A top room with balcony on the 4th floor will offer the best view and minimize noise from the road i...

We had an excellent week's holiday here. The staff are very efficient and very helpful, the rooms are fine, and there is a well equiped swimming pool. The well maintained beach is just across the road

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

A really great holiday with a fabulous location with lovely views of the sea opposite. Beach just across the road. Breakfast a treat. Really enjoyed the swimming pool. Everyone helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend. Sure it's pricey but that's Forte de Marmei all over.
Had to think what could be improved and the only thing was the scrambled egg in the morning was a bit hard and lukewarm! Sleeping quality was great and super beds.

Just spent 5 nights here and staff and service was excellent as well as pool and breakfast.

Sure it's a very expensive stay at over £600 per night for 2 rooms but have to say the whole thing was brilliant.

Dont expect big rooms or fantastic bathrooms but location and the whole feel of the resort being chic Italian makes up for any short comings.

In addition to the previously mentioned positives such as location, view, breakfast, and staff, I would add:

*beautiful marble bathroom with strong water pressure and plentiful towels.
*good lighting for reading in bed.
*ample storage for clothing and suitcases.
*reasonably priced soft drinks and water in mini-bar.
*good air-conditioning and ceiling fan for comfortable sleeping.
*generous drinks (with snacks) at the bar.

All in all, Forte is delightful and the Negresco a solid choice for a happy, comfortable vacation.

Room Tip: definitely worth it to get a room with a full sea view and a big balcony.
