“What a treat!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Stayed 2 nights at this beautiful Villa. Room was well equipped and spacious( recommend suite 702)with balcony overlooking the ocean and pool. The bathroom amenities were products by Etro. The service was exceptional and staff are so willing to please. The breakfast selection was sufficient.
The hotel is situated a few minutes from the center of Forte de Marmi and across the road from the beach clubs ( additional cost and will be organized by the hotel).

Room Tip: Room 702- balcony with loungers

A great stay in a hotel that has a quiet elegance. The pool area was very comfortable. Wonderful tranquil gardens.

I'm a frequent traveler, and this is probably the best quality for price hotel I've ever been to. At a reasonable price, you are plunged into an 18th century atmosphere with, at the same time, any modern facility you can possibly ask to a 21st century hotel. Just perfect!!

Location is great, park is beautiful, however, we've been quite disapointed by the rooms, and the poor quality of customer's service.
The bathroom could be redone for a 4 star hotel, the room itself is quite big, however, some equipments could be added, like a waterboiler ?
Our fridge was not working since day one, despite our phone calls, no one came, and after the third night, thanks to my handy husband, we could finally have some fresh drinks in the room.
We also asked reception to keep some fresh baby food for us, and no one came to give it back to us, also despite our numerous requests... We had to go ourselves...
We also asked to have something to warm up the bottles, and no solution was provided, so we did go and bought ourselves a waterbouiller for 20 euros...
Room cleaning was also a bit sporadic, first time in all trips we've made that the room was handled only end of afternoon (5:00pm ) !
All in all, we were quite disapointed as the park is very nice, location is perfect, just in front of the beach, but those "issues" ruined a bit our stay...

Really enjoyed our stay here and had a good room rate. Seemed to me to be the best hotel in the area, second only to the UNA hotel next door - it certainly doesn't deserve to be 13th on TA rankings.

A couple of things:

- if you are going, avoid room 310 in Torre as it has an inter-connecting door to room next door which the hotel (inappropriately) assigns to other (ignorant, in our case) guests. Hence, noise carries.

- the area is a stones throw from the beach front with lots of shops and restaurants. Restaurant Europa was very good value and great Pizza/Pasta and unbelievably cheap wine and prosecco.

- Hotel breakfast was pretty good, didn't try lunch or dinner (preferred to try different restaurants each night!)

- Only a short walk to supermarket (Esselunga) at the top of Via Kennedy (right out the hotel, and right again).

- Pool area was great and grounds were very pretty etc - has a real traditional feel to it, but rooms are clean etc. Life guards very good, free towels etc

- Decent enough gym (no treadmill)

- reception staff could have been more friendly/helpful. I wouldn't say they were rude, but lets just say they could do with a little more customer service training (a smile is always a great start!).

Overall had a good stay for the room rate, however some of the prices I saw quoted on other sites for this are ridiculously over priced. It has some 5* touches, but all in all I would say it is a good 4* and the rate we paid fairly reflected that.

Having said that, the rooms in the Durse building are much newer and look from the outside to perhaps be worthier of a higher room rate (although we did not see them inside).

Overall, I would recommend if you are looking for a romantic setting with a more individual feel rather than the all inclusive one size fits all approach that you would get with a bigger chain hotel.

I think the hotel would be the perfect venue for a wedding (it's almost as if its set up lends itself to precisely that sort of setting).

One last thing - there are lots of beach clubs along the front (in fact) the majority of the beach is dominated by them and you therefore have to pay for either deck chairs, sunbeds, sunbeds with brollies, tents etc. These range from Euro 40 - Euro 10 dependant on what you want, so keep this in mind if you want to spend most your time on the beach.

I attended a wedding in the Park Hotel Villa Ariston in May 09. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel facilities were also top notch.
The whole wedding party were all really well looked after.

The beach is just across the road and is gorgeous. There are also a host of restaurants and shops closeby.
I'd definitey recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Lido di Camaiore; and will be returning myself.

We stayed at the Villa Ariston for 6 nights in may 2009. We got married in a town close to the hotel and had approx 40 guests staying with us at the hotel. Our wedding reception was at the villa. The words I have used above are just some of the words our guests used to describe the hotel. I am from Ireland and the hotel even managed to order in guinness and harp on draught for our wedding. The staff were incredible, the food was superb, the salt water pool is brilliant, the rooms are fabulous, the price was excellent considering the quality of the hotel. The hotel is just across the road from a beautiful beach. This is best hotel I have ever stayed in and we will be back every year for our anniversary gauranteed and our guests will be back too. I cannot recommend this hotel enough especially if you looking to get married in Italy. Thankyou to everybody at the villa ariston johnny, claudio, giseppi, rudy for giving us the best few days of our lives.
