I went to this paradise last year, it was the best place I stayed at while in Italy. The rooms are perfectly decorated, super comfortable beds, awesome views. I was there in November, it was a little cold but that hot spring water pool was so warm and relaxing. Service is top, the entire staff are very friendly and polite....

If you look for a luxury and picturesque weekend escape the Castello di Velona is perfect. The building is amazing, the breakfast offers everything you can dream of and the staff are very professional and friendly. It was a delight waking up early in the morning surrounded by the most beautiful landscape of Tuscany.

Arguably one of the nicest resorts I've ever stayed at. The service was 5 star, food was incredible and the spa caters to your every desire. I would not hesitate to recommend this as a bucket list stay. We will definitely be repeat customers.

First, the good: As you can see from pictures, the thermal pools and spa at Castello di Velona are beautiful, as are the views. We made our decision to stay here based on those pictures. However, in my opinion, the service is so terrible that it outweighs the good. This was one of five hotels that we stayed on during...

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...
