“Would never stay there again, even for free!”
Reviewed 17 October 2007

I stayed there last summer, the place is old, the walls are paper thin, the beds are rock hard, the staff _not much to say about the staff really, only to say they were very rude! There was construction next door and they (staff) didn't even email or try to contact us to inform us of this distribution (despite us booking 6 months in advance). If there were flights available out of there I would have been gone on the first night. Over all it’s over priced and over rated, the only good thing was its pool!

As for Forte De Marmi itself, it was nice but a little too exclusive especially the beach which cost around 50 Euro a day to sit on. It is also very difficult to get there unless you hire a car as there are only two buses (or so) running to the train station to get to Pisa airport!

We have recently returned from our third visit to Hotel Il Negresco, and have to report that it is better than ever. Having spent several days in southern Tuscany we thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing week at this charming hotel.
A total makeover to the swimming pool area has made a huge difference and you can enjoy time there or just across the road on the beach. It really is a perfect spot to enjoy the charming town of Forte di Marmi.
The staff are most attentive and any requests are dealt with in an effortless manner.
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

We decided to do a two centre holiday having the first 4 nights at Rapallo in Liguria and then 3 nights at Forte dei Marmi. When looking for hotels it was rather a case of trying to find a hotel that remains open all year in this part of Italy as it is a very seasonal resort. I thought I had booked a superior double room which promised 'an astonishing view of the whole coast up to the Cinque Terre or the Alps. Both my husband and I were present when we checked in and we gave them both our passports. It wasn't until a day later that when going out of the hotel we were advised by one of the staff behind the desk that I had actually booked the room for only one person! (I obviously pressed the wrong number from the drop down menu on the website when making the booking) They were of course quick to advise that this would be at a higher charge than quoted. One would have thought they may have noticed this at check in especially as the room only had a balcony with enough room for one chair, had one bathrobe and one pair of slippers! The room was on the side of the hotel with a view of the Alps, the bit of the beach in front of the hotel and.... what appears to be an unfinished building site, crane and all! This is a bit of an eyesore. The room itself was adequate but I was surprised to see on the website that this room was completely new. In our opinion it looked a little worn and the furnishings were a bit tired. Although it had tea and coffee making facilities, there was no milk. The rooms were only attended once during the day in the morning. Breakfast was adequate but by choice we did not use the restaurant. Staff and service were average and we certainly didn't feel they went out of their way to be that helpful. The pool looked quite nice but we didn't use it. Position of the hotel is nice as it is on the sea front but it is a good 15 - 20 minute walk from town. We had a car which we had to pay to park in the hotel car park (45 euros for 3 nights). Sadly after having such a good stay in Liguria this hotel was a little disappointing

We stayed at the Hotel Il Negresco in September for a Golf and Cultural vacation. Fantastic location!! We could reach easily several Golf Clubs at the cost and the major art cities of Tuscany. The service in general and the restauran are excellent, staff very friendly and empathic. The room has a wonderful balcony overlooking Forte dei Marmi's sea and the swimming pool was very relaxing and pleasant. We would like to stay here again!

Stayed here for ten days. A lovely hotel. Comfortable, good location - could walk comfortably (or cycle!) to Forte and back.
Helpful, friendly staff and good facilities. We used the rooftop hot tub most days and no one else ever came up when we were there. The pool although very nice was unheated and too cold for us in September.
Good food in the dining room although a little rich for us on occasions. Very large portions. Lunches were excellent. Comfortable rooms and excellent housekeeping. Towels were changed twice a day.
A good base to visit other parts of Tuscany.

Hotel in a good location: on the sea line (street to cross), good facilities. A bit expensive but that is due to be in one of the most famous sea resorts in Italy.
