We stayed here for 4 nights, and the hotel front is very dominating and impressive, right on the beach. Inside too is beautifully done, rooms are large and facilities were excellent. The pool on the roof is stunning, all one depth, great for children, although a little small during peak times and no room for lengths just for basking in really. The only thing that let it down for me was the staff, there were a few shining stars, Daniela at breakfast and the pool and bar attendant with bobbed dark hair and a gentleman at the reception, looked to be a manager. Other than those, they were unfriendly, unwelcoming and trying to think of a better term but arrogance is the only one that comes close. My husband almost had a row with the concierge because he kept talking over him, and the reception staff never greeted us with a smile or "can I help you?". The porter who you'd expect to be the most courteous suddenly left us with our bags when we were leaving as a large Mercedes arrived. Very disappointing. Viareggio itself is lovely but it is really a beach / pool / sun holiday, very little else to do. Its safe and friendly overall.
