“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We had a stylish, spacious room with a balcony. the bathroom looked good but the floor flooded every time we had a shower. The grounds are pleasant and outdoor swimming pool and its bar were good and not too crowded.

However, we didn't get to try the restaurants as when we tried to get a table they were fully booked. This wouldn't have mattered much if there were other restaurants nearby but the resort is on the edge of town so you have to drive to find somewhere to eat. We probably wouldn't have eaten at the hotel every night but it would have been good to have the choice so that my husband could have had a glass of wine with dinner some nights. THere is no room servce so that's not an option either.

The other disappointment was that to use the gym you had to pay 17 euros per person per day. This seemed ridiculously expensive so we didn't use that either. (The 17 euros also got you access to the other spa facilities eg indoor pool and sauna but there was no cheaper gym only option if you weren't interested in the other things).

Having chosen the hotel because it had a pool, restaurants and gym, we felt that only getting to use one of these made it poor value for money. I wouldn't therefore recommend this hotel.

At a 4 star hotel, one could expect to be greeted by a welcoming smile and a helpful approach. Forget it - Some of the stuff will be grumpy, deliberately awkward and evasive. Mr Monti, the new manager, has his hands full getting the front desk to be helpful, accommodating, and informed. Try changing rooms, booking a taxi, locating your late laundry - some of the front desk staff will ensure that that experience is memorable by their rudeness and incompetence.

Otherwise, the rest of the staff are charming. The pools are great, and pool side BBQ on the weekends is fabulous and Aldo mixes a superb cocktails and is very friendly. The spa is delightful with a good size hot pools and lots of buttons to press to get spurting hot water - our 10 year son loved it. The gym is well equipped and big. Again, the staff here are delightful.
Avoid the rooms in D block. They are older, some of the lighting is poor, and there are no safes in the room. These rooms are also right by a major building project that start drilling at 7 am. every day except Sunday. The rooms in A and B blocks are new and elegant, they have balconies, safes and are further away from the noisy works. The room staff are also charming and helpful.

Again, it is a pity this hotel tolerates the type of surly reception when the rest of the staff is so pleasant and keen to help. Clearly the range and quality of the amenities justify the 4 stars.

Room Tip: Chose blocks A and B. Modern, with balcony and in room safes. Also quiet.

There is a massive construction site in front of this hotel and doesn't look to be finished for a while.
Room spacious but badly furnished with no in room safe or mirror on wall. Terrible bathroom. When booking a massage there was a charge to enter the wellness centre and a charge to use the indoor swimming pool, which also required a cap to be worn. Breakfast was awful, with tea and coffee from machines and there was an extra charge for any eggs other than scrambled. There was no fresh fruit - it was all tinned. Dinner was good but very expensive and the hotel location is remote so nowhere else to go if you didn't have a car. Taxi fares to PIsa airport are extortionate. The hotel does not provide transfers. For such a large hotel there is nothing( eg. Pool table or table tennis) for older children apart from the swimming pool and tennis court. This 4 star hotel needs to get its basics right instead of concentrating on Michelin starred restaurant.

As a business traveller, the building site in front of the hotel does not really worry me. I have stayed here on 3 occasions, and each time has been a great stay. The rooms are large and well furnished, with proper black out blinds. The pool and bar are nice, and the staff are always friendly.

Please be warned, if you like it lively, you are better staying in the centre of Tirrenia. This is a long walk from the centre, and the restaurant choices are limited.

The website gives no indication that this hotel is on a building site. The car park is under one of the buildings under construction and the automatic barriers do not work, requiring staff members to operate them. The food is extremely expensive and breakfasts are served by automatic machines ! This is not an hotel for mature couples but ideal for grouips and young families if they can afford it

Room Tip: Make sure it is adequately lit. The lighting is quite poor

I've stayed at the Green Park three times now and it never disappoints. The hotel is set out like a small campus round a park which is always fun to wander through on the way to the pool, restaurant or reception. For those who must there are little karts to get about. It is a bit Dr No really, with a sixties design theme. Both the restaurants are excellent. The less expensive one is about €100 for dinner for 2, but it's better than anywhere else we've found in Tirrenia. The lunch and dinner menu is the same, same prices. Breakfast is standard European fare let down a bit by having a coffee vending machine instead of a proper Espresso. May is low season and its nice and quiet although the outside pool is closed, which was a disappointment as it used to be open all year. There's a popular health and beauty facility on the site for treatments and which has a pool and gym machines. They do good value treatment packages but otherwise its €17 to walk through the door. Better to have a swim in the sea which is 5 minutes walk away. Nice big sandy beach with bars open in summer.

Room Tip: All the rooms are generously sized. Those facing the park have the best views whilst those facing ou...

Stayed there with friends for about 10 days, and it was great experience. The hotel is located at the outskirts of Tirrenia (or better say at neighbouring Calambrone), takes a 20-min walk or a quick drive to get to the centre. The area around the hotel is a little bit deserted with some construction in progress, which is somehow compensated by the hotel huge territory, it is indeed a green park, and the 3 min walk to the sea. A car is essential if you want to see Pisa, Lucca and the coast. The hotel is organized as several separate small buildings on the territory of the park with an outdoor swimming pool and a separate spa building with indoor swimming pool. The rooms are quite big, with table and chairs, and with big bathrooms. Breakfast is standard, but very nice coffee. There are two restaurants, one more formal, the other one is like a grill outside, we have been to both for dinner, and the food was up to very high standards. You will not find same quality around easily. Highly recommended!
