“Short Break - April”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

Just returned from a three day short break and this hotel was excellent in every way. Location, standard of accomodation, food and staff were first class and of a very high standard. The resort was very quite this time of year - does not get going until May. Best to book half board as the evening meals are very good. Try not to use any Taxis in this area as they are a complete rip off and will cost you futune even for a short journey to the rail station. Bus & train are the way to go or hire a car. The beach is sandy and very clean and large. Sites to see from here - Pietrasanta town, Pisa (half a day), Florence ( full day), Lucca, Viareggio. This holiday can be expensive but good value - just steer clear for those taxis!

Room Tip: good room 308 or any with sea view

Just returned from 5 nights in this hotel. Booked on the Tripadvisor recommendations.
Yes it's one for people with transport, we had a hire car which put the town, Forti dei Marmi and the mountains all in reach.
This hotel and the staff are amongst the best I've experienced. The marble floors and staircases are beautiful.
The room, wooden flooring and walnut furniture were simple but exceptional. The balcony was huge and overlooked the pool. The maids kept it spotless.
The chap maintaining the pool deserves special mention, he never stopped working! the water and the whole area around were always clean.
The catering staff were extremely competent, always there but never obtrusive. The fare simple and enjoyable.
American bar supplied great cocktails (by the pool).
End of season so it felt like our private resort! few little signs of wear (spots of plaster flaking outside) and I hope they do the obvious winter maintenance.
The polite reception staff spoke good English.
The beaches are clean with talcum powder sand and shallow water, I expect you need to book well ahead in season.
Will I return? definitely.

Fortei dei Marmi and Marina de Peitrasanta comprise a large area and are nicely upmarket. Just beware of the areas North (Masa) and South to Viareggio which we drove through. You wouldn't want to stay there!

Room Tip: I think all rooms overlook the pool, ask for one of the larger balconies

Hotel was excellent! Really enjoyed our stay in the area. Breakfast was very good, staff very friendly and helpful. Big plus.. always seemed to be loungers available at the pool, no early morning rising to put towels on beds! Nice relaxed atmosphere. Bicycle hire for the area is a must. Plenty of bicycle tracks and area is flat so very enjoyable. Hotel is located opposite beach which is full of beds/umbrellas that you have to pay for but it is a great beach to go for a walk on as you can go for miles in either direction. The old town of Pietrasanta is about 4 km away but an easy bike ride. There is a train station in Pietrasanta where you can do many day trips from, Pisa 30 mins, Lucca about 1 hour and Florence 1.5 hours. Also Forte de Marmi for people watching! If you like some activity and great food there is plenty to see and do.

We had a couple of nights to fill before flying back to UK from Pisa and looked in the area for a bargain hotel. Found this on booking.com at a steal price of 95euros for dinner b&b for two per night. We would not normally eat hotel dinners but at that price we were prepared to eat in a restaurant if the food was not good.
The website pictures do not do this hotel justice, neither do the reviews on this site.
The hotel is set back from the road opposite the miles of sandy beach. There is a large car park plus underground parking which would be a bonus in the summer heat.
Our first impression upon entering was that this was a well cared for hotel, beautifully furnished. We had booked a deluxe sea view room and were not disappointed. Although not oversized the room had everything we needed and the huge marble bathroom was just lovely. Electric shutters led to an enormous balcony with table and chairs. We noticed either side had private sunbeds as well which I am sure we could have asked for.There was also and electric canopy to give shade if needed. Across the road and behind the private beach clubs there was the sea.
Outside there is a large eating area, and a heated pool with ample sunbeds. All very well kept.
We were easily able to access the beach opposite and such a shame that it was all closed up as it was still warm, like an english summer. There were many people walking and fishing so the posts on here that the beach is inaccessible are incorrect.
As it was the end of the season there were few guests. This did not detract from the excellent restaurant . We were served a four course dinner each night which was delicious but we thought the wine very expensive. Breakfast was also very good with a huge choice and everything you would expect of a 4* hotel. Certainly no packets of food and the coffee was freshly made for each guest.
The hotel was closing the next week until next Easter.
In conclusion this is a very pleasant place to stay, totally refurbished, in a very nice location . I think a car would be necessary as a long way to nearest shops.

We have just returned from a very enjoyable holiday at this hotel which uses two names for some reason. We found the hotel staff very pleasant, the rooms clean and spacious but most of all the quality of the food was excellent. We have stayed in Italy many times but this hotel's food was superior to all the others. Unlike another person's report complaining that there was no fresh fruit for breakfast we had a wide choice of fresh frit ,tinned fruit, ham, cheese bread and cakes. The evening meal provided plenty of choice and the food was freshly cooked and served with generous portions.
Th beach was just across the road which wasn't that busy to cross even for people from the Welsh hills like us!. The hotel had a large pool which was never crowded and always had a life-guard on duty.
The only draw back was a fair walk to the centre of the town but bikes could be hired from the hotel and there was a cycle path the whole way which was good fun.
On the 15th of August they celebrated Ferragosto with a gala evening with a fantastic buffet and party. It was not a place for those who want a very lively night life but there was entertainement from a singer by the pool every night.

Sir
Being a Brit myself, I can relate to your pessimistic, dreary outlook. I don't however, share your blinkered view.
I assume you weren't looking for fish and chips too? If an overpriced, pretentious place is what you seek, go about 5 km north to Forte dei Marmi. We have stayed at the hotel and found the staff friendly, the atmosphere relaxing and I found a 20 metre walk across the road to the beach quite convenient, actually.
If you go to Pietrasanta proper, you'll find some marvellous sculpture throughout the town, and a little place called Il Gato Nero, one of the best restaurants I and my Italian wife have ever been too. This world famous restaurant has a large selection of quality food, about 25 percent of it piscine, and has Vittoria, one of the most marvellous hostesses to grace the Italian food scene. Ever stay in a Brit hotel, by the way???
Please, if you visit a "foreign" country, appreciate it for what it is, not what you think it should be. See you in Rimini ... not.

This hotel is a little tired. Extremely basic continental breakfast - no fresh fruit at all. Wonderful staff tried very hard and we were made welcome. There is some building work going on at the hotel so dont be surprised at the scaffolding. Position not good - road was very noisy and lots of walking to find a decent restaurant. Outdoor Theatre behind hotel however made up for it all - it was wonderful - sorry I cant remember the name ! Oh - by the way if you dont like fish dont go to PietraSanta to eat.
