This is an establishment where it's worthwhile to try to strike up a rapport with the staff. It's very local - a beautiful place, but don't expect the staff to treat you like royalty unless you treat them well. The fish is very good and the atmosphere is lovely, especially at sunset.

This place is overpriced... and then they have a daily rate of 15 E and a weekly rate of 110E. Ask why and they just say take your pick. Would not go here!!

Hi All, I had conducted a lot of research whilst my holiday in Tuscany. we were staying in Lucca and had read alot of reviews on Balena. after visiting Viareggio and going specifically to Balena I would not recommend it. the prices are very expensive indeed, more expensive than the other beach establishments, therefore I would stick to the others...

Why would one want to visit a place where staff is rude and unattentive, there is plenty of other places to choose from.

The pools were lovely but this is a sports club so there were a lot of 'serious swimmers' there and wearing a swimming cap was compulsory. The water was freezing! The toilets were horrible! We enjoyed using the sun loungers here and the beach area is nice and well kept.

We visited Balena mainly for the fitness center, which was well equipped in comparison to most other establishments in the area. If you are looking for anything " upscale" or spa- like, this is not the place. There was a decent amount of cardio equipment, weight machines, free weights and a separate area for stretching. I also noticed some aqua... More

During our two week stay we visited here once. Although our hotel gave a pass for this beach club we did not return. The food was not very good and when we were going on the beach they did not bother to point out where the deck chairs allocated were. The general feeling was disinterest by the staff.

This beach club is the one that our hotel had an agreement with (so included in our package) which we understand as it has lots of facilities which, to be honest is the only reason we didn't rate it as Terrible. The staff where ignorant, they would be behind the bar but walk past you many times or just stand... More

Originally we went there to enjoy the beach, but it was a nice surprise to find that they also had a fitness centre included.

Very good beach & pool facilities for us and our 2 children. Fascinating people watching of the bronzed italians posing and working out!
