This is a lovely hotel which is made even more special by it lovely spa. There is a pool which is heated and starts inside the hotel but you can then swim outside. We really enjoyed relaxing in the spa after a day of sightseeing All the amenities showers etc were high class. In the summer they also have a separate outdoor pool a short distance from main building through the attractive grounds We had a room in the main hotel which was a nice size with a small seating area and good bathroom with shower. Very clean room and comfortable bed. The breakfast buffet was good. If you are slightly ambitious you can walk from the hotel up to Cortona along a quiet road. The hotel staff were so worried when we asked if it was possible. It's a long way up it's steep they told us several times. It was typical of their very caring attitude. As was true in all of Italy they carefully checked our vaccination status on arrival

Outstanding. The rooms, the grounds, the food, the pools, the spa, and the services all were outstanding.

Our room was in the villetta, and offered the best bathroom/shower that I have ever seen at an Italian hotel. The room itself was bright and airy, yet with old Tuscan touches. The bed was perfect for a sound night of sleep.

The expansive grounds are impeccably kept by the charming Massimiliano, including the 200 year old Sequoia tree (yes, from a seed brought by a monk from California). The pools were a gathering spot late afternoons, usually with a bit of Prosecco. Also, most of our group took advantage the spa. At first blush, I would not think of spending time at the spa in Italy; however, the spa made the trip so much more relaxing.

The food, at both dinner and breakfast was delicious, beyond compare. We spent some time with the chef, Donato, as he shared insights about some of our favorites.

This place is set apart by the service, think of Ritz Carlton service without the pomp. Sachith and Julia at the front desk were amazing, from helping us to plan the details of our next trip to Italy, to working through logistics on our current trip, they went above and beyond.

I can’t speak highly enough about the wait staff in the restaurant, in particular Christian with help from Jerry. We met as guest of the hotel, and by the time of departure, we invited them to our Christmas party in Illinois. We will certainly see them again, in Cortona or back home when they visit. Amazing.

This is one of the most beautiful resorts I have been to while in Europe.
We are very grateful to all staff for the nice welcoming and the hospitality, especially to Christopher and Doina but nonetheless to Nico & Ari.
We loved swimming in the heated outdoor pool while enjoying the beautiful views.
Wonderful place! We will always come back with pleasure ❤️

Not a resort. The staff are kind but limited in their abilities to effect change. Food is only marginally good. Breads are stale, cakes are dry, eggs must be ordered and are good at breakfast. The cook smokes outside the back door which is a real turn-off to think he’s breathing smoke on my dinner?? My Carpaccio was thick, tough to chew raw meat. A ‘panini’ was dry bread and cold cheese and ham (both were not eatable). Plain tomatoe sauce with pasta was fine at dinner. But in Italy and at a resort I expected really nice food, I can make plain pasta at home.
Several loud people drinking beers and bottles of wine dominated the pool. Glass was allowed around the pool area and I fear it will break and someone will be cut.
Rooms are NOT luxurious, nor do they look like the photos. The AC worked well and the area is quiet so that was very nice.
We stayed for 4 days and there was NO availability at the Spa. We were supposed to get a massage but there was no appointments available.
The town of Cortona is nearby but very crowded and dirty. We did not eat there. We found a delightful restaurant nearby in Camachi (sp) called La Bracerie and the foods was outstanding. Every dish was excellent and so reasonably priced and served with a smile. Go there!!!

At the end of a fabulous week spent nearby our party of 8 selected the Restaurant at the Cortona Resort and Spa for our farewell dinner party.
Our experience was a major disappointment.
The venue is exceptional but the kitchen and staff have no idea.
Perhaps the chef had left ?
Lovely young staff had no training on any aspect of a Restaurant .
The food at best mediocre but in some cases not even a reflection of the written menu, dishes missed out, dishes delivered at the wrong time, our collective description being " Fred Carno's Circus ".
Upon the wine front things get worse....the owners " own vineyard " Sangovasie was totally undrinkable...the young staff did try but have been let down by poor management. We are fair people and paid our bill and tipped the young team, if you ever read this and you are the owner we recommend you get a grip and quick or you will fail.

Overall the hotel is not so bad, but the linens and pillows are a bit worn and need replacing. The restaurant is fine, but could be so much better if a bit more attention was paid and the food was improved slightly. The biggest disappointment was the noise - certain workers and trash pick up starts as early at 6:30 am and there is party-like noise from the restaurants patio (where we were told we could not eat) until midnight. I left sleep deprived.

You will be attracted by beautiful photos that are not real at all! Very unfriendly staff, very high prices, charge for every single thing included in all the other types of spa.Totally discouraged: If you are looking for relax you will come back worse than before.

We stayed at the Cortona Resort for five nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay! The service was impeccable and the room was perfect. We truly enjoyed the restaurant and spa. One of its best features is a large outdoor hot tub. This is a place for total relaxation!

This is a great setting, however the setting does not make up for the lack of consistency and poor service.
During our stay the hot tub was out of action for 3 of the 7 days due to construction work.
Evening meals were inconsistent and often contained far too much salt.
Room was adequate, but poorly maintained with loose tap in kitchen terms area and lack of drinking glasses, that is one only, clearly units are not checked correctly before new check in.
Shame as the ,ovation has potential.

I must say, the stay here was a big dissapointment. The property has a big potential, but it is lost as the price, service and overall services did not match at all.
First the room - for 210 per night you will get an outdates, tired old room, with very noisy aircondition, no nets on the windows, so there is a paradise for mosquitos....So the room - zero points.
The property - very nice, with a big three under which you can take drink and small snacks - very nice and very romantic...BUT...There were works on the new pool, so during our stay it was very noisy and in fact it spoiled our stay. When we new about this, we will not come...so take care and ask.....
The breakfast - OK, good service, BUT ...again an issue. When I wanted to take one coffee and one croisant for my sick GF to the room, the waiter took it from my hand and tell me he will bring it. So we were walking side by side till our room....On my bill this appear as a room service for 10 EUR....make your own opinion.
The staff - girls are much better then boys....boys are lazy and a bit rude. When I asked about some venues in Cortona, he said: Check google. Well, this is ok answer for some hostel, but not for 210 EUR room!!!
Location - location is OK when you have a car....
Overall : NOT RECOMMENDED!
