We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Royal. We found it a very clean and well ordered Hotel. It is situated on the busy promanade are of the resort. It is an impreesive building that stands out from the rest of the Hotels. Inside the main areas are eligent and well furnished. Thje rooms are of a good size and modern but in keeping with the period of the building, We traveled with Citalia and had booked a seaview room on half board. We were given a room with a balcolny and enjoyed this extra facility alot . We had a room on the third floor central in the front an excellent location, One word of warning this is Italy and so traffic noise can be heard and that of other tourists but soon this becomes the norm. The Gardens and pool area are very nice and a small bar/restraunt can be found next to the pool. Life guard was present. We found all the staff both friendly and helpful and I had occassion to need a dentist and was given every assistance to get the services of an english speaking one who was excellent.The train station is about 20 mins walk from the hotel and you can reach Florence in about one hour and three quarters at a cost of only 6.80 euro. Piza and Lucca also can be reached by train. A local bus stops out side the hotel and goes to Piza 3 euro. We found a mixture of touring the local places of interest and also a relaxing time available here.Meal times are good being from 07.30 am to 10.30 for breakfast and 19.30 to 21.00 for dinner. Our only concern were the evening meals, its difficult to say exactly what but lets say the starters and sweets are fine but the main meal lacked something. Also if you ride a bike hire is available and the area is flat so you can go for miles. Use of a beach oposite is available with towels supplied included if with a company like Citalia but extra if not.
Overall we had a great stay and would recommend it. We found Citalia very good as well and had no problems the rep at the hotel was also excellent.
