This was our 2nd visit to the Tirreno. We first visited with our children around 10 years ago and always meant to come back. We got the opportunity to do so this year. The Tirreno was recently refurbished (maybe 3 years ago?) and any reviews from before then should be read with this in mind.
Our room on the front of the hotel with sea view and balcony was large enough for 2 and with a small but not cramped bathroom. Good shower and modern clean fittings. Nice little balcony with table and chairs and it was lovely to sit here in the early evening with a glass of wine.
The bed was very comfortable - we didn't need airconditioning but this was available.
The buffet breakfast was plentiful and the owner's wife is very friendly and ready to help with recommendations, directions, maps etc. The owner himself is helpful and will book a restaurant for you on request. Beach towels were provided with no problem. You pay for beach chairs, beds and parasols (1 price for all) per day and this is added to your bill at the end.
Alassio is a great spot and the Tirreno is a really good base to stay and explore the delights of the Italian Riviera. We hope to be back before another 10 years passes!
