“Upgrade to the ocean view room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

We stayed there during a business trip and upgraded to an ocean view room - well worth it. We had a nice balcony and large bathroom with plenty of windows. Unfortunately it was too cold to enjoy really the outdoors due to lots of rain, but I would recommend this upgrade to anyone staying here.

Room Tip: ocean view or corner room on 4th floor

Spent the passing of the old year into the new at this hotel. As much as the welcoming staff resembles the outside of the hotel, a bit dry, starchy and cold, the inside is much different. Lounge area more welcoming than one would have thought, the rooms are functional and very clean, beds very comfortable, that you don't lose the 1st nights sleep, and quiet if you are lodged on the back with an overview of the park. Great for couples with kids. Or ,Old years nights meal was a TOO MUCH-much, 9 servings ,hors d'oeuvres inclu. Would have appreciated less in quantity and more quality. A pity there were no olives /antipastis, typical local Tuscany products. Great location for seaside ballads , and even a small shopping area if you insist on spending €s. Recommendable.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the seafront can be noisy , even more so in the summer I would imagine given the proxim...

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.
