“Just what we wanted!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

This hotel fitted our needs perfectly: location quiet, pool lovely, table tennis & tennis court; the terrace for drinks & food is lovely, staff so friendly & helpful, easy walking distance to our favourite restaurants plus the clean beach with deck chairs showers restaurant 10 mins walk away. The fair for the kids close by was a bonus (for the kids anyway). The hotel may have old fixtures & fittings but it is comfortable. The WiFi worked in the public rooms only, which was good enough for most needs. Our apartment was spacious but bathroom small. The aircon is excellent & quiet.

Dated both inside and out! Concrete outside. Location fine for Florence and Pisa as public transport is brilliant. Not an area to go back to! Furniture and rooms are like something out of your Grandma's house! Staff are fine, the hotel just needs a complete makeover. Pool area ok. Beach busy as August but not pretty.

Hotel is very large and has the bonus of a lovely relaxing pool area. The beach and shops are a short walk away.
Room was a good size with mini bar/fridge, hairdryer, small balcony, air con and black out blinds. The decor and fittings are dated, but perfectly functional and in their day would have been quality fittings. Breakfast choice however was the most limited we have ever had and poor in our opinion. The staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. There is also free use of a computer if you wish.
If you’re happy with the essentials, in a good location for exploring the area, the hotel is good. Plenty of good restaurants nearby and the bus to Pisa and beyond is closeby.

Room Tip: Nice views from the back of the hotel overlooking a golf course.

This hotel is ideally situated overlooking a beautiful Forrest
That seems to go on forever and a couple of golf courses
The main area where the restaurants are is
Only a 10 minute walk away.
The pool and garden area is very nice and
Quite relaxing
The bar and foyer area quite nice but the two
Big problems were the breakfast which was
Totally inedible. I am not a fussy eater but
At breakfast I could not find anything to
Eat
The other thing which was poor was the
Bedroom which was not too dissimilar to
A prison cell . The decour was discussting
Tv did not work shower was positioned in
The middle of the bath so every time anyone
Took a shower the bathroom got
Flooded the air con was something else
Tried not to touch anything electrical
In case I got electrocuted and the room
Key not a modern electrical card but
A stupid key attached to a golf

A hotel that was probably the splendor of the 50's, 60's and 70's hasn't changed much in that many years. Large high ceilinged rooms with 50 year old bathrooms, broken tile and ripped linoleum in the halls, off-mark products fora breakfast buffet with very limited choices do not warrant the room cost of a 4 star resort. A 12inch TV in the room that only received 5 channels and pillows 1 inch thick. Again , no longer up to 4 star quality.

On the whole we think the hotel provided good value for money. The room was ok, although we did get a lot of mosquito bites ( no air con). The pool was nice, as the hotel was only a quarter full. The breakfast was ok, but could be improved (poor juice, coffee, croissants), and exactly the same choice every day. The hotel staff were helpful.

We were a bit disappointed with Tirrenia. Not a lot of restaurants, and expensive. The restaurants need to provide more tourist menus at set prices. We only managed to find one, 15 euros for 2 courses (whereas in Florence and Pisa you can get set menu from 10/12 euros). We had trouble finding a supermarket, but eventually found just one.
You have to take bus to Pisa (30-35mins, fare 2.30 euros each way) in order to see other places (Florence, Lucca, Viarregio, etc).
You cannot take a bus along the coast direct to Viarregio etc, you can only go to Pisa one way, or Livorno the other.

After realising that the weather over half term looked terrible in England, I decided to have a quick look on Easyjet holidays and came across this place. I checked the reviews and decided a bit of 80's decor didn't really matter, what mattered was a bit of sun, a pool for our 6 year old and an easy and quick flight from Bristol.

When we arrived at 10pm The reception staff were welcoming and kind. The room was spotless and just as expected. The breakfast lets the hotel down which is a shame, but a quick trip to the supermarket meant we could miss breakfast if we wished. The pool was wonderful, warm enough and not another soul around. Our son spent many hours leaping in and out - although it was too deep for him to stand up in. The beach is actually a 10 - 15 minute walk away and is around 8euro a sunbed. However the free beach is perfect, just buy a cheap umbrella and away you go!
It was remarkably cheap to get to Pisa on a 20min bus - €2.30 return and free child. The leaning tower only takes children 8yrs and older though,something that we learnt whilst in the queue!

The local restaurants were good, nice pasta and pizza starting at €6. Brilliant waterpark by the beach, worth the entry fee of €40 for our family.

A special mention must go to the barman Michael, as my son said "my favourite Italian person". He was fluent in English, very interesting and wonderfully helpful - telling us info on how to get to Pisa, making snacks for my son, drawing on our map each of the restaurants and generally being very good company of an evening.

Such a perfect place for a quick 5 night break, look past the dated decor and see a place fully commited to looking after you and making your stay happy and enjoyable.

If you are after a stunning hotel with no character then this isn't the place for you, but if you are looking for a friendly peaceful atmosphere then this is the right place. I would give it 4 stars based on staff/atmosphere but have given it 3 as I think it's too basic for a typical 4 star.

Absolutely planning on returning once my son is old enough to climb the leaning tower! He enjoyed our stay so much that he had to say goodbye to everything in the room, including the chairs!!
