“A tad tired......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

My partner and I got a last minute break here so did not get a chance to check out any reviews but it is most definitely a hotel in need of a complete makeover . It is 3 star at best and I believe it is only the pool & golf course that get it the 5 star rating. It is stuck in it's only little time warp of the 70's for it's fixtures and fittings. However having said all these negatives some positives are it is clean , spacious rooms and a good location. Also all the staff were faultless , very friendly and very helpful. Had we paid a lot of money for this we would have had cause for complaint but as we got it at a very cheap price we felt we had value for money, do NOT pay 5 star prices to stay here!

5 star service, 3 star hotel, but spacious, good location and great views of the sea. Close to town. Hotel food average. Breakfast was a continental breakfast: boiled egg, meat, cheese, yogurt etc, but quite a good range.

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
Ball

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.
