Reviewed June 8, 2014

Just back from a 4 night stay at the UNA Poggio Dei Medici golf resort just outside Florence . Great golf course in a beautiful surrounding , lovely rustic Tuscan accommodation overlooking the course detached from the main hotel however within a 2 minute walk from all amenities . Very good food and attentive staff making it a thoroughly enjoyable stay .

We stayed at the resort for 4 nights. This is indeed a golfing heaven. The 18 holes golf course is very challenging and interesting. Tee box 8 is quite difficult to find. I met a lot of golfers having the same problem with locating tee box 8. The hotel is what it claims to be - 4 stars. Very rustic countryside feel. The rooms could look better - first impression was rather tired but it grows on you. We took the executive suite which is huge with an equally huge balcony and bathroom. The beds were very good. The room could brighten up with some art or nicer looking headboard. We were told that the air conditioning only operates when it gets warmer (near summer). As we were there in May, it was not considered warm enough. The first night was fine as the rain brought cooler temperature but the following 3 days were warmer. We were told we can open the balcony door to ventilate the room. We discovered that it was a big mistake as mosquitoes went into the room! The staff gave us some insect repellant but my spouse and I had each at least 8 mosquito bites by the time we checked out! I really think the management should let the air conditioning operate in the rooms even in May. Guests do not pay for mosquito bites! Staff are friendly, informative and efficient. The restaurant is also very satisfactory with a good breakfast spread and an interesting dinner and lunch menu. Also, we are allowed to bring our own wine with no extra charges. This was really a plus as we had been buying a few bottles in our earlier wine tours. So, other than the horrible episodes about the mosquitoes, I am quite happy with the golfing holiday.

My second business visit to this hotel served to reinforce my impression from the 1st time. This is a lovely place. Spacious, relaxed, friendly, tranquil and picturesque. The food is good, and, sitting on the terrace in the October sunshine, the views across the quiet golf course are superb while you're eating it. The rooms and bathrooms were well appointed with all you need, with far more space in both than you might expect, with serene views over the golf course to the hills.. Great value too, especially taking into consideration the array of facilities at your disposal. As a golf resort, I cannot comment, as I didn't get any further than the driving range, but judging from my colleague's golf lust, I'd guess the course was very alluring indeed. I look forward to my next return there.

Room Tip: Sk for a room with a view over the golf course.

We just come back from this hotel. It was our fifth time in a row for playing golf and were truly impressed again.
This time we had a junior suite at the top of wich is big enough for 9 days with two terraces a sleeping and living room with lots of space for all togs. The bathroom good sized with all facilities you need as shaving foam and shaver toothpasta and toothbrush, even handcreme etc.
Take a Executive room or a suit at the main building is more expensive but absolute worth it.
Breakfast was for the most part for italian standards
excellent with granary loaf, white bread, chees, 4 different juices, eggs, muesli, etc. above all lavish. Sometimes some thinks could be better. Its not a big deal but warmed up croissants which were old and also not a big deal but the tv in the restaurant should disable for breakfast and dinner is sometimes annoying. Also wi-fi to pay is not a standard nowadays. For lunch is the pool bar available with trifles as pasta and sandwiches etc. but for me personally overpriced and excessive. We didn't have dinner at the hotel because there are many excellent restaurant around the hotel for a reasonable value.
The golf course was in a good shape due to a good care and better weather conditions as 2012.
The staff overall was friendly as usual.
We think we come back again.

We stayed at Poggio Dei Medici during a late summer week end. The location is beautiful, the golf course absolutely fine tough quite difficult. The view from the room was very relaxing. The room was gorgeous, very clean and elegant. Breakfast was also very good, and we had it on a beautiful terrace. Dinner was also good-quality and well served. We enjoyed the swimming pool and the SPA. Nearby is the Mugello racing ring and Scarperia, a romantic small town worth the visit.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view on the golf course

A rustic setting in the Italian countryside, 30 minutes from Florence and 5 minutes from Mugello Race Track. The rooms are huge, very clean and have the bonus of air con. There is plenty of on site parking. Pool area is nice with on duty life guard. Golf staff and front desk very helpful. The Internet was ok at times but struggled when busy which is annoying. Breakfast is very good with the option of sitting outside but trying to eat at other times is more difficult as the pool bar and restaurant aren't always open at stated time on the hotel paperwork, but you can get a sandwich at the bar. The gym is well equipped and there is a long list of treatments available. Overall I would stay again

We booked this hotel and free golf arrangement via a golf travel website for a very attractive price. We were surprised (positively) about the hotel, the breakfast, swimming pool, bar and resto at the pool, the location and the perfect maintained golf course. Located 20km from Firenze and a 60-90 min drive from Sienna, Pisa, Lucca, ..., it will be hard to find a better golf / culture / relax destination. Nothing to complain ? Perhaps the 18 euro you pay for a 4 hour internet connection but compared to the price / quality for the rest, just enjoy ... .
