Hi travellers, Me and my husband recently stayed here for 8 nights as part of our honeymoon we got back yesterday and i must say i couldn't fault it one bit!
It was amazing, friendly staff, always said good morning to us.
The rooms were lovely bathroom, bed and a safe which to be honest is all you need if your visiting Pisa and Florence because you wont be in the room at all!!! Pretty quiet outside at night, but it got busy at the weekends we stayed in 109. They have free Wifi too just ask at reception for the password.
Breakfast was brilliant, tons of choice yoguts, cereals, toast, eggs, Tea, coffee, juice, fruit and it was always replenished when stuff ran out and you could eat outside for breakfast which is a treat.
The beach was fab and empty most days! so definatly go off peak, you didnt get none of that people getting up early and saving thier beds and chairs it was just stroll down and no one was there! It was so peaceful, even by the pool! You do ahve to wear swimming hats which reception supply just for hygiene reasons which was no bother at all as everyone was wearing them.
You could have dinner at the hotel but we chose not too, we had dinner at a different restaurant every night, Toscana and ChiChiBoi are fabulous and inexpensive aroud Tirrenna even the pizzera right opposite the hotel was lovely. we also went into Pisa for dinner too. The most we paid for dinner was 50 euroes ( it was my husbands birthday though)
The bus station was directly by the hotel, 3 euroes each to get into Pisa and sometimes we didnt even pay because the bus driver ran out of tickets.
Take some insect repellent with you though, as it was at least 30 everyday and they like to come out at night!
Any thing you needed at the hotel they got for you, they had maps and bus timetabels, a nice bar, which was cheap enough 2.50 for pot of tea.
Its great that you can just hop on a bus to Pisa or go out to dinner, there is a marina which is about an hours walk. Really beautiful, we walked up there saw the Sunset had a nice dinner and strolled back, if your not a walker you can hop on the bus too as it stops there on the way to Pisa.
All in all a really great faimly, couples or even solo and friends holiday bit of beach and major sightseeing too! Absolutley fantastic would recommened to any one who wants to see the sights and relax too. Florence was only an hour away by train and cost us 7.00 euroes each, its more expensive to get into london these days so take advantage of it.
Also take a pack of cards or some crosswords for the evening and spend some quality time with whoever your going with.
Im sending my mum and dad there to experiance it and i me and my husband said we will go back for out 1 year anniversary.
Please dont listen to bad reviews, people can be fussy these days, if you just want to see and experiance italy and have some FUN this hotel is for you.
