We had a very enjoyable ten day holiday in this lovely charming hotel. All the reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Our requests were dealt with quickly and efficiently. We had a sea-view room on the 4th floor, which was excellent. Breakfast was very good with a variety of fruit, cereals, bread, danish pasteries, cold meats and cheese, yoghurt and also some hot food.
Lunch in the pool area is very enjoyable and tasty. We had dinner on the first and last night of our stay, Staff are very friendly and nice, but there did seem to be a longer delay in serving food on our last night. Perhaps there needs to be an additional chef so that guests don't have to wait a long time for each course to be served. Having said that the food was delicious.
The garden and pool area are very nice and there are two hammocks in the garden under the shade of the trees, which offer respite from the heat of the warm sun. The hotel is very convenient to the beautiful beach across the road. The hotel can arrange excursions to various places of interest, - Pisa and Lucca, Siena and San Gimignano, Florence, Portofino and Cinque Terre. It is easy to take a bus independantly from the bus station (20 mins walk from hotel) to Pisa, etc. There is a bus stop outside the hotel and it is very easy to take a bus trip to Forte de Marmi, further along the coast to the north and do some shopping in the many designer shops. Viareggio is a lovely resort and we would stay in this fantastic hotel again.
