“Does not live up to the hype”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We spent a week at this hotel in June 2014. In some ways it has a certain charm and the welcome we received on our arrival was very warm and genuine. The decor has an artistic theme going back to the original owner Chini however I feel the need to upgrade the basic fabric of the place is long overdue in my opinion it is very tired.
Our room was very basic with an en-suite shower room 1.3 metres square that's about 4 feet sq in old money. It was classed as a wet room and I can tell you everything was wet after a shower. We were given exclusive access to another shower room across the hallway which we had to use but not much privacy when you have another three bedrooms adjacent to ours. The resident ants in our room also did not add to the luxury feel.
The good points were the evening meal in the garden restaurant with waitress's Anna and Laura just terrific. The 4 course meal at €25 each was good value with two choices each evening and a change every evening. The breakfast also served in the garden was was ok but no better than mediocre in my opinion.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in Lido di Camiore and reading previous reviews on this hotel you would have it as a 5 star establishment however in our opinion this place does not live up to the hype and is most certainly a 3 star hotel nothing more.

Room Tip: Avoid room 3

What a charming place! As soon as we arrived we were greeted with warmth and extraordinary hospitality...this place is a quite garden, only a block from the beach and has all the charm i was looking for..it is tastefully decorated and run by two brothers who go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. We had a 4 person room on the top floor which was unfortunately facing the back...but, it was comfortable...We had one dinner in the hotel which was beyond delicious and the brothers know how to make stiff martinis! Breakfast items were the usual items but they were served with love and much welcoming attitude! I would love to go back and will definitely recommend the club to everyone who wants to stay in the charming Lido di Camaiore!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the garden view!

Like a private and comfortable holiday villa with very efficient and kind personnel, the villa traces its history as it used to be the holiday house of a famous artist Galiléo Chini who also invited his friends in this villa. Nice environment (wake up with birds' songs) in a quiet street at 200 meters from the largest and longest sand beach I have ever seen. Excellent italian breakfast and also appreciated the dinner composed of local food and wine. The prices are very reasonable.

Room Tip: There are communicating rooms for family with children.

Built as the residence for the painter, Galileo Chini, this large house/small hotel is set back several blocks from the sea and contains many of his paintings. The rooms are basic and functional and to criticise them is to miss the point. This is a charming house, containing features and artworks that deserve appropriate attention and I'm sure even the most culturally evasive guest will succumb to the warm history of the place. Then there is the garden, mature and rambling, the focal point for dining, where other senses will waken. From the trees and bushes, the birds will serenade you as you appreciate the quality of food, wine and company that surrounds you. You don't eat, you dine. And you take your time. Stars appear and the aftertaste of the home-made creme di limoncella mellows your soul. All of the ingredients are so simple yet together so powerful. The service is never intrusive, always pleasant, this hotel is run by people who care and understand the meaning of the word guest. You leave this hotel feeling priviliged to have to have visited, to have been invited and you hope to get another invite in future! We travelled with two toddlers and both loved the hotel, the warmth of the brothers that care for it and the lady that served us with our morning breakfast. Thank you all for your hospitality, long may your philosophy succeed!

You really cannot even begin to imagine how magical of a place this is! Upon arrival you are warmly welcomed and within a matter of minutes you feel as if you are family! Everything from the cappuccino in the morning to the delicious meals served in the beautiful garden at night are perfect in every way. Lido di Camaiore is an exceptional area with a landscape unlike any other place I've been in Italy: seaside, mountains, and, of course, the enchantment of Tuscany. And it's easy to make a trip to Pisa or Cinque Terre. Cesare and Nicola provide service that will far exceed any expectation. Will be back again and again!

This was one of our best hotel stays ever! There was a warm welcome, a feeling that you were important, your holiday was enjoyed due to your stay at the hotel, amazing food and dining experience, amazing choice of wines and nothing was too much trouble. Private beach facilities...awesome.

Cannot rate this hotel high enough!

10 out of 10!
Five stars!

Room Tip: Rooms all appeared to be comfortable and homely...we had no complaints about our own room.
