I stayed at the Grand Hotel Royal, Viareggio, in May and had a wonderful holiday. Viareggio is only half an hour away from Pisa airport which offers really good flights to the UK over the summer - this was one of the factors for booking this resort. The hotel was in an excellent location, in front of the beach and... More

This is one of the most beautiful hotels we have ever stayed at. The location was gorgeous, the staff was pleasant and incredibly helpful in making dinner reservations and assisting with travel suggestions. The hotel's guest sunbathing area on the beach was stunning too. Our room was squeaky clean with beautiful high ceilings, a large washroom, a lovely view of... More

I booked this hotel with Expedia for myself, husband, and young baby. We booked a room without a seaview, but because it was the end of the season, we were put at the front of the hotel anyway, with a view of the sea at no extra cost. The hotel itself was nice, we only stayed on a b&b basis.... More

Whilst we enjoyed our stay at the Royal in general, we were very disappointed with the food. In the main the food was bland, boring and badly cooked. The hotel seemed to try to cater for too many tastes and ended up pleasing none. It was a great pity that we were not given a real taste of Italy.

We have just returned from a weeks stay with our two small children and we were delighted with the whole set up! I cannot understand how anyone could slate this hotel. It is in a great location, opposite a lovely white sandy beach with a smooth, clean, warm sea. We booked the holiday through Thomson and our package included free... More

It's a beautiful building in a prime location. We had a forth floor room on the front of the hotel, balcony perfect for enjoying the afternoon sun and later watching the sun go down andwith a stunning waterfront view. Room was very big, plenty of storage and large well euipped bathroom. Housekeeping was good so everything kept clean & tidy.... More
