“Pleasant stay in upmarket resort”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

We stayed in the Duchessa Viscounti suite which had two balconies. It was pleasant but as with the rest of the hotel things are a little old & in need of refreshment. Breakfast which is always a highlight of our stay was v disappointing so actually for our last few days we either went to a local cafe or to Principe - the new Russian owned luxury property a couple of blocks up - which to be honest we wished we'd booked instead.

Just recently returned from our fourth stay at The Ritz Hotel in Forte dei Marmi.
Every time my husband and I go back to the Ritz, it is like going home......we are always greeted by both the Proprietor, his family, and the staff as if we'd just been gone for a trip abroad and are now returning back "home". Frequent travelers, it is this trip every year that we look forward to the most.
The proprietor of the property is always at hand to assist with directions to close by cities along
with helpful restaurant and shopping tips. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful with any assistance we might need and we just adore them. The bartender is always at hand to make pre-dinner cocktails and entertain you with a story. The beautiful and generously sized pool is extremely well maintained and a delightful alternative to the sea which is located directly across the road. The restaurants and shopping district is easliy assessible either by walking or by the nice selection of bicycles that The Ritz has to offer. What could be more idiyllic than staying in this lovely family run hotel, directly across from the sea, and be able to go through one's entire holiday without ever getting in the car and driving?

Booked the hotel thru commercial website and we
found a perfect location, staff very friendly and a family room for 4 persons.
I have stayed three times in Forte dei
Marmi and this was definite the best location 4 stars for 2 adults and 2 children in off season period. Hotel very well entertained and 10 minutes walking from shopping and restaurant district. Best regards federico

I found the staff very cordial and helpful, the sea view room was a decent size, clean with a great shower and amenities. The hotel has a fleet of pedal bikes and a small courtesy vehicle. The beach is 100 feet and the town center a few blocks away so the location is great.

When we arrived booking.com had not notified the hotel, I would strongly advise NOT to use booking.com as the rate I was quoted walking in was far less than I paid through booking.com do not use them just call the hotel which I will do when I am in town next.

Great hotel in every way.

The Hotel Ritz is a nice hotel , great I would not call it compared to a lot of European hotels for that money , the rooms are very small and basic, they lack a bit of ambiance I think this a boutique hotel but what it lacks in ambiance it makes up for in service the staff extremely helpful and happy , the outdoor area very tranquil and pretty the flowers around the property gorgeous all in all this hotel is nice I believe over priced that is without a doubt is it worth visiting this hotel for sure I think this is one of the better hotels in Forte dei marmi .

On arrival at the hotel, we found desk staff aloof and unhelpful. This was prevalent throughout our 3 night stay. Our room was a good size, but dated and there was a fault with the toilet. We asked them to fix however after 2 attempts there was no success . After some fuss, we were offered another room which again was dated. The breakfast buffet was average but certainly not reflective of the price we were paying. The pool and garden seating was very good and the location is ideal for those who want quick access to the beach. Not good value.

Our first time in Forte dei Marmi, and what an amazing place... so understated and chic.... We chose the Ritz from the professional website and were pleasantly impressed. The Hotel is a little expensive but worth every penny as the quality of the clients is extreemely high... no riff raff here, just obviously wealthy and important Italians... one just has to look at all the cars in the carpark! The rooms are beautifully appointed and I would advise the deluxe rooms as the standard ones are a little small. The pool is fantastic and we enjoyed being pampered for the week we stayed +++++
