Fifteen years ago we discovered this lovely hotel. This place oozes great Italian grandeur. Together with great Tuscan cuisine -diner in the hotel park is lovely to end a sunny day at the private beach- combined with a warm staff made us come back, and back and back...

What a lovely older hotel. We chose to stay here while visiting the leaning tower of Pisa and I am glad we did, it is was so much nicer than the town of Pisa for accommodations, restaurants and strolling around. We had booked a normal room, but were upgraded on arrival with a large room with sea views. It was a bit off season (end of April) so they may have had the space, either way it was very nice. The staff was very helpful and courteous. We had dinner in the hotel, it was very good for the price and the setting so elegant. Breakfast was also the best on our 2 week travel along the Italian and French Riviera it included warm bacon, eggs, fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella as well as cereals, yogurts and bread and delicious cappuccino.
Parking was a breeze just outside the front of the hotel or their car park. I wish we could have stayed longer. The beach was very spacious and a lengthy "board walk to stroll, or run or rollerblade, with lots of shops and restaurants. Highly recommend this as a choice for staying.
Excellent value for the price.

Both myself and my wife visited this hotel as part of a deal as half board. Whilst I grant you that the interior is a 'bit tired', I think this added to its charm. The staff were very helpful and the food was good. We went just before the start of their season mainly as a base for visiting the usual sites. However, we were so lucky with the weather, we did manage quite a few days on the beach.
I paid extra for the sea view with balcony and thought this was well worth it. As already mentioned, everything was a bit tired but I would class it more as shabby chique. The size of the room was very good, the bed was large and comfortable and the room was very clean. The balcony was small but quite adequate to sit out on with a cup of tea and catch the last bit of sun.
Dont be put off this hotel as if you can get the right deal, it is well worth it!
Couple of tips though!!
Get some water and drinks from the small supermarket that is 5 minutes walk away as this is a lot cheaper than the hotel plus they sell mill for your tea. Also the Thursday morning market is good if you like a bargin. My wife picked up a loverly pair of shoes for just 5 euros!
Hope this helps and you have a good trip!

1. The location is perfect, you just cross a road from the hotel, and you're at the beach (which is complimentary for guests), The view from our room was amazing, you could go out onto the balcony area and watch the street and the sea view and the sunsets!

2. The food was also really good, there was not an evening meal where the standard of the food wasn't up to an excellent standard, really tasty 3 course meals

3. The hotel itself, the reception area was really nice, there were a number of rooms one could sit in and socialise or relax with lovely decor. The dining area for us was actually in large white outdoor tent area, it was undercover but still had the feel of outdoors. Near the dining room was a range of seating areas, including hammocks which the young people especially seemed to enjoy. The pool was also kept clean, and wasn't too cold! and there was a lifeguard most of the time.

4. The staff, were friendly greeted us everyday at breakfast and always remained professional.

5. Noise- now mostly, when we were there there wasn't any issues with noise. However due to the fact the nature of the area is quite a busy atmospheric sea side resort,there was actually a great carnival on one night which we really enjoyed. though, little did we know that it would be passing our hotel again at 2.30am which wasn't the best thing to happen.

6.Our room- was kept stocked with clean towels every morning if needed and cleaned by the staff. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were spacious. No problems with the room

All in all, there isn't anything negative I could say about this trip, I had a brilliant time the area is great (bit expensive I must admit), the beach is definitely work visiting, you can also walk to the station (15min walk) and catch the train to Pisa for the day very cheaply which is worth doing. I would definitely like to return one day!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms would probably be the best one to go for
