“Good hotel for a family holiday or stopover.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We stayed here on our way to the south of Italy travelling from France and it proved to be a good choice. Our room was actually a small apartment complete with balcony and a lovely sea view. As well as the golf course the hotel has a courtesy bus to its own private beach. There is a snack bar and restaurant at the beach area. Breakfast was very good and we would recommend the hotel as it is professionally run, there is a nice little shopping centre across the road and the marina area is nice for a stroll and has a selection of restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view on a high floor.

We decided to plan a golfing vacation in Tuscany ending our trip with a mix of sea and golf. For those who desire such a balanced vacation, Punta Ala is a great destination. The Golf Hotel is a solid four star hotel offering a great golf and meal plan package. With your stay comes access to their private beach for which you will find all the comforts (included in your price) chairs, umbrella and towels. Also on the beach is the hotel's restaurant in order to quench your thirst or releave your hunger.

We chose a 1/2 room and board in a standard suite with breakfast and dinner. The golf option was also included for each of our nights. We were able to play three times at Punta Ala golf ( www.golfpuntaala.it more on the very challenging course in another TA review).

The Room

Structurally, the hotel architecture is somewhat dated. However, they have maintained the interior quite well. The room (ours was 328-without view) was very functional and clean. It has a living room with small dining area and a locked kitchen. The bedroom was large enough for two twin beds, which when put together make the European version of a "king size". The room was clean and promptly serviced.

The Food

Breakfast is served poolside and is a very rich and healthy buffet. I must say that the Tuscans have a very good sweet tooth. There were three different and fresh cornetti along with many other home made pastries. Fresh fruit, cheeses, prosciutto, eggs and breads completed the assortment of choices. It was truly tasty and enjoyable.

Dinner is served in two large dining halls where one has assigned seating. The decor is pleasant but the dining room acoustics are not good. Included in the dinner is your choice of a large antipasto buffet, a first course, a second course and dessert. The food was of good quality and variety even if on occasions they can get "lost" in their sauces.

The Beach/Pool

The hotel has a convenient shuttle that takes you rapidly from the hotel to their private beach. You do have an option to walk which (not exactly measured) is around 800 meters or 2/3rds of a mile. You need only to bring your bathing suit since they will provide a beach umbrella, chairs and a lounge chair. Your room category will determine your location. In addition, you can have access to their bar/restaurant and other facilities permitting you to stay on the beach for the entire day. The ocean water is clean.

The hotel pool is located on some very well maintained grounds with plenty of lounge chairs and towels. The design of the pool is somewhat unique (looks like it could be converted into a runway for models) not permitting any lap swimming. Yet, it was functional and refreshing.

The Staff/Service

My compliments goes out to all the energetic workers who must pull some long 12 hour + shifts! They maintain a friendly and helpful disposition. If you need something, just ask. I gave the hotel an extra star for the great work of all the employees.


The Golf

As previously noted, we stayed at this hotel for its golf package included in the room and board. You play at the Punta Ala Golf which celebrates its 50th year this year. It is a short 5 minute drive by car. I would recommend pre-reserving your tee times and golf cart. For more details on this course, it has been reviewed separately on TA.

Other

We discovered a hidden small shopping center on the second day. It is no more than a 5 minute walk from the hotel. There are many nice stores including a very nice gift shop for local momentos. The grocery store (alimentari) and pharmacy can help you with any items you need or forgot. But the best is at the end of the second floor for a great after dinner – GELATO … not that I needed it!

Note- our golfing vacation included Saturnia, Marina Velca, Argentario (on TA) and Punta Ala (on TA). This permitted a nice tour of Tuscany with our final relaxing stay at the beach in Punta Ala.

Room Tip: Our room was 328. It had no view which is not a problem at night..its dark anyway. The key was tha...

A very large, very comfortable hotel well away from all the worldly rat race! Large rooms, suites actually, with living room, bedroom, bathroom, shower room, kitchenette, patio (ground floor room), room safe. Excellent swimming pool, restaurant and extensive grounds. Shuttle bus to private beach and hotel's own beach restaurant. The service was first class, the staff exceptionally attentive and friendly and even baked me a surprise birthday cake!! If I had just one minor criticism it would be that there were no tea/coffee making facilities in the suite, which I found odd in a hotel of this standard. Quite a hike by road from Pisa Airport, but good train service from Pisa to Follonica, and 40 Euro taxi from station to hotel. If you like to be peaceful and relaxed, cannot fault this one!!

Room Tip: Facing pool 1st floor with balcony - recommended

I visited this Hotel in May ; I found it very comfortable and the personnel was very friendly; the hotel has many facilities with turkish baths and other facilities; my room was simple but comfortable; the golf course in located very closely and is very nice with panoramic club house with bar and restaurant.
The breakfast is very rich and diversified with local specialties; the dinner was ok with a very large choice of fresh ingredients.Personnel attentive and gentle.
The beach is very nice with parking and many facilities in a beautiful landscape .
IT is important at the time of reservation ask for the services provided and relative costs.

Room Tip: ask when making the reservation

Good points: beach and relevant services (even if restaurant service is slow), common areas.
Average: restaurant (nothing special, but acceptable with wide choice).
Bad points: poor wi-fi, old room, and moisture.
I deem this last issue not only relevant to our room because we did realize afterward that same problem affected also other hotel guests... Anyway it is really not acceptable to feel uncomfortable to take shower in room because of humidity... and therefore to arrange it at the beach where hot shower is available, and last but not least all family left the hotel with sorethroat, catarrh... etc.etc. And our room was located at the 2nd floor (of 3).
Room could be good 15/20 years ago... doors and wardrobe are hardly closing properly and clearly shows their ages, actually some arr'nt are more in line with a two stars hotel than a four. Overall average accommodation (but expensive for what you get) for family not much demanding looking for beach hotel in this area... Than maybe POOR!?!?

My fiancé and I went to Golf Hotel for the first time and had a relaxing and pleasant stay. The only drawback is that we only were able to stay for one night. The biggest plus is the elegance of the hotel and the beach which belongs to them. They have a convenient shuttle service and the shuttle drivers are very friendly. The people working in the bar by the beach are also very nice... this place is all about being nice to customers which only adds to the ambiance.
