“A Gem!”
Reviewed 3 August 2008

We stayed for a week in July with two boys. Forte dei Marmi is a great resort that can easily be used as a base to visit places like Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre and Lucca. The family enjoyed the resort town so much, we kept the visits out of town to a minimum. The shops are as good as in Flornece. The restaurants are excellent but more expensive than in Lucca or Florence. Leave the car parked and do like everyone else, use bicycles to go everywhere. The hotel is a gem. Understated elegance. It provides good (if small) accomodations for families. The pool is great. The breakfast is excellent. It is very clean. Staff is very helpful. They recommended good restaurants and they even arranged for chartering a boat to Cinque Terre. A wonderful experience. We will be back to Il Negeresco.

  • Liked — Understated elegance. Not arrogant. Extremely pleasant.
  • Disliked — The pillows.

We have just returned from 7 day our stay at the il Negresco Hotel in Forte dei Marmi where we enjoyed a most fabulous holiday. Right from the start when we were making our bookings and phoned the hotel, we were very warmly received and every effort was made to try and accommodate our needs. The hotel is a smaller more personalized hotel decorated in light breezy colors using whites and creams having a very airy sunny effect. My worst is going into a dark room with heavy furnishings and dull wintry coloured decor. The location was great being just far enough from the centre of the town to have the peacefulness of the hotel (and parking on street – unlike centre where parking scarce), but near enough to enjoy a short cycle to the town, which stays open until midnight. The best decision we made was to elect to go half-board as the food was excellent and an absolute treat in both taste and presentation. The hotel has a lovely pool and Jacuzzi and poolside. The only criticism I could make is that whilst the bathrooms were very acceptable and done in marble, they were on the small side and the fact that we were not given irons in our rooms as in the two subsequent hotels that we stayed in both in France and in London where same was provided as a standard item in the cupboard. Be that aside, the friendly staff at the front desk and their welcoming attitude made up for any minor irritations. The dining room staff were equally attentive and made every effort to please. We enjoyed swimming in the sea although it took getting used to the relatively high beach club rates which we are not accustomed to paying in our country. We look forward to returning there again and hope that we once again can have the same friendly staff and the same chef.

  • Liked — friendly attentive staff at reception and in dining room and delicious food.
  • Disliked — small bathroom and no iron in room

This is a perferct place to stay for a weekend away in february.
Laura was amazing receptionist providing a lovely welcoming and helpful service. She kindly organized two great places for dinner on each night and gave good recommendations about places to visit.
The hotel provides a wonderful breakfast to start the day with a very large selection of items.
We would surely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a more intimate experience in Forte dei Marmi and we will return at the Negresco for the summer holidays.

I spent a week in this wonderful location.
Staff was very smiley and helpful: I got the feeling they were happy that I was there.
The lobby was very stylish and the relaxing music was also a good touch.
Room was extremely comfortable and silent.
Also I'd like to add that, as a woman travelling alone, I was grateful for their particular attention and security measures.
In summary, I would have no hesitation to recommend it to othersz.

Our high hopes for Hotel Il Negresco were sadly dashed by the abysmal service and arrogant attitude of the staff. The atmosphere in the hotel was absolutely terrible - the only people who looked more unhappy than the staff were the guests! In spite of booking a Superior room, we were stuck for 6 Nights in a pokey cupboard overlooking the next door construction site. In our two weeks in Italy, Hotel Il Negresco was unquestionably the most disappointing accommodation and having had a chance to see other hotels during our stay in Forte dei Marmi we'd certainly go back to this fantastic and authentic resort...but never again to Il Negresco!

Not particularly impressed. Travelling by car with two young kids. The entire hotel was decorated in... white! Very elegant but honestly rather stressful with sticky toddler's fingers... The staff was not very interested and seemed annoyed to be there. Generous breakfast buffet. Nice but small swimmingpool and wading pool. The rooms were TINY, and did not give an impression of being very clean. Very badly soundproofed. Beautiful marble bathrooms with wonderful choice of soap etc. We were surprised to be billed for the hotel's outside parking space, eventhough it was clearly off season and not fully booked. No sign of special treats for the children eventhough such were widely advertised. We did not ask.
The hotel did not have a private beach. (In summer an entrance fee has to be paid to approach the beach)
The sea-side was completely blocked off the public by bathing-club sheds. Would not chose to go back, especially not off peak season, as the little town was absolutely dead, nowhere walking distance to eat out... only luxury clothes boutiques open... surely different in summer?

My boyfriend and I stayed 3 days at the Negresco for a October holidays in Italy. We enjoyed the warm and cozy atmosphere of the house and I loved the amazing swimming pool and the Italian sun in October. Also we appreciated the helpful people working there. We had a romantic accomodation, a room with a sweet balcony facing the sea just across the road. Service and cleanness have been excellent. We are planning to come back in spring with our children.
