How to Get There
We have mixed feelings about our stay at Cortona Resort & Spa, they do many things well but others leave a lot to be desired. Unfortunately the room we booked was next to a building site which was in operation throughout our stay which we were not advised of when we made the booking though they did kindly upgrade us to a large room within the hotel itself but unfortunately the airconditioning wasnt fit for purpose and made for many uncomfortable nights of excessive heat. This coupled with the fact that they do not offer complimentary water in the rooms did leave a sour taste as we found ourselves rather dehyrated throughout the night.
The rooms themselves are very nice, the breakfast is very good, staff are helpful & friendly and the facilities are clean and maintained to a high standard.
We only ate at the restuarant once during our 6 night stay but we were not blown away by the quality of the food and the choice was limited.
Overall we had a lovely time at the hotel and would recommend it to friends and family.
We stayed the second time at this beautiful hotel and spa which is just 5 min from Cortona by car. The hotel rooms are always clean. The restaurant is great a lot of delicious food and a great service too. We will come back.
We stayed here for four days in early July as part of our honeymoon trip to Italy. We were lucky enough to have a free upgrade to a junior suite in the Limona building and the room was lovely - the huge shower and bath particularly. However, we didn't need to spend much time in them as we were making the most of the Spa facilities. We loved the steam room and the Jacuzzi pool which is half inside/half outside. There is also a larger pool for swimming in within the gardens.Some of the spa and pool facilities are starting to show a hint of tiredness but not enough to be a big problem.
Note that the location is too far from the main town to be walkable (at least in the height of summer) so we appreciated that the hotel has a good restaurant. The prices are quite high, but as expected in Tuscany, and the setting under the trees in the garden is very pretty. The staff in the restaurant were wonderful, advising of us of specials and wine pairings, and very friendly.
The reception staff also helped us arrange a driver for wine tasting and an evening in the old town of Cortona. We did have a car for the rest of the time and would definitely recommend one or you might feel isolated.
Oh, and if you have a sweet tooth you will love the array of pastries and cakes on offer for breakfast! Thank you for a great stay!
