“Busines Trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Pleasant enough, but looks better in their photos. For example the swimming pool is at the front next to the main road, and although there is a high wall not the most pleasant. Only stayed two nights out of season on business so wasn't using it anyway.
Breakfast typical continental buffet style, adequate. Nice bar area, quiet but pleasant lady bar person, sorry didn't get her name.
Wifi rubbish

It looked really great! Delightful beach bar with wonderful minimal music, good drinks and comfortable sunbeds. Everything tidy and clean. It makes positive wibrations. I came back totally rest. Adequate for the price. I definitely recommend.

If you are looking for the typical Italian beach vibe, then this hotel is a good choice. If you are looking for something more reserved, this is absolutely the wrong idea. Unfortunately, we were looking for the latter, booked last minute for one night and were quite dissapointed. The rooms are clean and, although not modern, in decent shape. The breakfast buffet is ok, not too many options but enough to fill your tummy. A definite plus was the omlet bar where you could create your own omlet, have it prepared fresh and served at the table. Generally the reception staff is very friendly, the staff is the breakfast room seems a little overworked but ok.
Regarding the beach, appartently there is a cooperation with one of the private beaches; so instead of paying 30EUR per day (umbrella, 2 chairs, one sunbed) you pay 25...not a big deal if you are there for a short stay. The beach is packed and overpacked, as a tourist you get the worst seat and if you try and lay next to the chairs you are kicked out.

All in all, decent hotel, horrible beach, overpacked town.

Staff very helpful. Rooms are clean but very ordinary. View of the ocean in front of the hotel is spectacular. Street noise can be a problem, even on a high floor.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the ocean.

I was there for business and found the front desk very accommodating including providing a connection cable for the free wired Internet. Wireless is only in the lobby. Service in the bar area is spotty but I was there off season. Breakfast is just so so but edible. Surrounding area has several seaside tourist seafood restaurants. You need to take a taxi to get to where the good Tuscan food is.
