This is my first negative review ever in my life. We travel 50 percent of the year all over the world. We stayed at this hotel last June and even though the service and the food were not good last time we stayed, we came back this week for a return visit as they have thermal pools and the view...

Location: 5 points. Kitchen: 5 points. Service in Restaurant: 1 point. This restaurant does not fit to the image of the resort. Waiters walk around without taking notice of your wishes. Waiting for the food up to one hour. Sorry, if prices are on that level you can expect more. Instead of manager walk around if breakfast buffet looks nice...

My wife and I had the opportunity to stay and the Castell di Velona Resort for four days as part of our two week vacation in Italy. From the very start we knew we were in a special place. The staff was over the top friendly and professional. The thermal spa was fantastic. The views...breathtaking. Were there a few glitches...yes...

This is a stunning property that has been well and carefully renovated. The setting and views are unsurpassed, and the location is perfect for exploring the region and nearby towns and vineyards. While the staff is generally very friendly and solicitous, there are some obvious misses that keep service from being on par with other five star resorts. Would love...

You could not ask for a more charming setting or a more relaxed and beautiful hotel. The décor and facilities could only have been designed by the Italians who have the ability to create every modern facility and design without losing the charm and character of such a historic site. The rooms, common areas and pools perfectly match a relaxed...

My wife booked us for a couple of nights at Castello di Velona, for my birthday, and I intentionally avoided doing too much research ahead of time; I wanted to be surprised. The drive from Florence was splendid, staying off the main highway's and keeping largely to the "white roads," winding through the countryside, the villages, and at one point...

We had a wonderful stay at Castello di Velona. The hotel and its restaurant are both very good. The staff is also very friendly. The room was ok. Nothing special about it, but you will spend more time at the spa anyway. Amazing spa! We would definitely go back!

My wife and I have not have stayed in a hotel together on our own since we had our daughter just under 3 years ago. We took advantage of a grandmother staying and decided to stay at Castello di Velona. This place is truly unique.

My husband and I were in a romantic trip and this place is perfect for it. We watched the sunset from the thermal swimming pool and it were amazing. We enjoyed the spa. The staff were friendly. We had a very good time.
