We have been visiting this hotel every year for the past 7 years and would not stay anywhere else. Thought we were going to struggle this year as Thomson Holidays, in their wisdom, had decided to pull the plug on flights from Manchester to Pisa. The thought of travelling down to Gatwick was just unthinkable. As it turned out we were able to book flights with Ryanair from Liverpool airport and got a really good half-board deal direct with the hotel. We arranged a private transfer on-line with 'Airports taxi transfers' from Pisa to Viareggio and were more than satisfied with all. It may have been a little extra effort in the planning but it was more than worth it. We have previously visited in July but this time we decided to try September. We were a little unlucky with the weather on a couple of days but otherwise it was still superb and the resort was a little quieter. The Hotel on the other hand seemed to be as busy as ever. The food in the restaurant is one of the main reasons we keep coming back, it is truly fantastic. The quality of the breakfast is second to none with everything you could possibly want on the buffet from a glass of Prosecco to sliced meats, cheese, scrambled eggs, fruits, nuts, yogurts,freshly baked bread and croissants to an a la carte menu of crepes, various cooked eggs, sausages , the list just goes on. All at no extra charge. The staff throughout the hotel are all thoroughly professional and very friendly. The 4 course evening meal is a delight too. During the day we just want a relaxing beach holiday but the location is great if you want to visit Florence, Pisa or Cinque Terre which we have done over the years. The hotel provides access to the beach just over the road, Bagno Irene. This too is first class. It is family run and all the staff there are very friendly and accommodating. The beach is kept in pristine condition and the cafe provides a very good selection of drinks, ice creams and lunch menu. We will certainly be returning next year!
