First of all. When you visit Italy be sure to eat en stay at places where Italians go. This hotel has 90 procent Italians. The other 10 % consists of Swiss, Belgians and Germans. Somehow the Dutch haven't discovered this place yet.
If you like Italian food this is the place to be. They offer a buffet every night and it is great. Every day three different pastas, fresh fish, lam, pork, potato's all Italian style.
The rooms and bathrooms are very clean but now is the time for some renovation. It begins to look a bit old.
The airconditioning is functioning very very good.
This is a family orientated hotel. This means that there is an animation team that starts with singing on the beach in hte morning and at 16.00 by the swiming pool. If you don't like loud music until 12 at night don't go, or choose a room not facing the pool. The animation is mostly Italian orientated. If you want to let your children take part into events you have to introduce them to the team. There is no disco or other dancepossibility after 12 at night.
The staff is very very friendly. They do everything to make you feel welcome.
This hotel is situated 8 minutes walking from the beach. They have their own beachpart where you can use the beachchairs for free.
The hotel is not near to Cecina. You need a car to get to the village. If you don't have a car it is difficult to get to Cecina. The public transport is terrible. You have to order a bus at the reception. From Cecina you can make trips by train to all the places in Tuscany.
There is a wellnesscentre but it was very very quied there during our stay.
Concusion: If you have children, don't mind animation noise, like italian food, want to relax on the beach or by the swimmingpool... this is the place to be.
