“lives up to my great expectations once again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

We have returned consistantly to this hotel each year for about 8 or 9 years each July.It is like visiting family.They welcome you and try their very best to assist you in enjoying a relaxing holiday.This is an elegant smaller hotel that is refined in its ways.We always enjoy half board and the food is very good without being excessive or over the top and gross.Whilst the rooms are not large or with many drawers,(which i am used to using)The facility of the table and chairs on your private balcony make up for it together with the beautiful sea view.It is a good cycle from the town,but very manageable and offers a quieter type relaxing holiday.We took a train to Florence this time which took almost two hours but was great and after having had a very busy day got back to the hotel in time for dinner.We look forward to returning next year from Cape Town

Room Tip: All rooms i have stayed in have a balcony overlooking the sea!The hotel staff run the hotel with gre...

We stayed here for 6 days in late May this year. The staff were efficient and breakfast was good with a lovely healthy buffet. The swimming pool is quite small and next to a busy road but we never struggled to find a bed to sit round it. The rooms are small even the Superior ones which we stayed in and be warned the walls are very thin. We could hear everything from our neighbours room and this was a nuisance. This was a very clean hotel with good service but slightly lacking in charm and privacy.

Room Tip: Choose the superior room overlooking the front

A friendly and welcoming hotel and a very pleasant visit. We were upgraded to a sea view suite on the 4th floor which was lovely and peaceful. Room very clean, comfortable and modern. The pool is wonderful, so relaxing and refreshing with perfect water temperature. Breakfast was delicious with many fresh choices and excellent coffee. Lunch on the terrace was also very good. Servers work very hard to accommodate many guests and staff at reception very helpful and kind with dinner recommendations, taxis. Thank you very much, I hope to return on day.

The friendly and accommodating staff will make you feel at home in luxury. The food buffet is delicious. The Rooms arnt very modern and are small but they have everything you could need, right down to a fruity welcome! The internet is good and the position is great.

I read some reviews before booking to this hotel.
The hotel had some refit works before the summer season, the only issue is that the noises caused by the works didnt allow a proper rest. Impossible to have business calls and even if I tried to mention the issue, the personnel just said to wait for the works to be over. They didnt suggest an alternative.
The reception held my documents for two days and I wasnt reminded of getting them back.
The buffet breakfast was pretty poor and lacking of stuff.
I wouldn't recommend it for business but I'm certain it's a wonderful location for a summer vacation.

We stayed at Negresco almost 10 years ago for a short holiday in summer. It was very nice. Now, almost ten years later, it is still very good, probably one of the best 4 stars hotels in Forte dei Marmi. Located on the sea, 10 minutes by bike from the center, it is informally elegant and well kept. The whole hotel has been redecorated in sand/beige/white colours that make it more contemporary. The beds are VERY comfortable. Some fixtures are not new (details) but the hotel is well maintained and deserves its rating. In summer it comes at a price but in winter you can find exceptional offers that render it the best bargain in the area.

Room Tip: Take a sea view for the view or a garden view if you don't want the noise.

I admit to being biased. After 50 or more trips to the country I love with the woman I love, a hotel must be just right, a safe harbor, dependable, devoid of staff who ask how you are and are somewhere else while you answer: A staff that not only wishes you a nice day but does what it can to assure it. And so my wife and I have once again returned from the hotel and staff we adore.

Hotel Il Negresco is not The Gritti, The Hassler, Masseria Torre Coccora, The Grand Hotel di Rimini, et al. We've stayed at all of them and many other '5 stars' multiple times. But none of them draw us back like Il Negresco.

That the hotel is the perfect base for day trips by rail or car to Florence, Lucca (the perfect Italian city), Cinqueterra, Pisa, Genova; that the markets in Forte Dei Marmi, nearbye Marina di Pietrasanta, Viarregio, Camiore are some of the best in Italy; that the regional food is lovely; that the rooms have more storage than some suites twice the size so luggage disappears and you're not a 'traveler' for at least part of the trip; that, standing on the rooftop, you face west over the Meditterranean, turn east and look at the quarry atop the Apuan Alps from which Michelangelo extracted the marble for Pieta and David are not the primary reasons we return year after year.

It's the staff.

So Simonetta, Laura, Roberto,  Filipo, Eduardo, Dora and the rest of the staff, Betty and I thank for being who you are and, in an ever-changing impersonal world, continue to assure us that 'our Italy' still exists and there are people who truly care.

Ancora, Tante Grazie.
