Positive: - extensive, but offering a clear view and closed holiday resort. - private, covered parking, near the bungalow. - contrary to some other previous reviews, we found the complex included our accommodation in clean condition. Also from ants or other the pool was far and wide nothing to see. ( what 'not expert' in the mediterranean basin as a 'dirty' name, is generally the humidity this attitude. Fault. It means, that the salzlasstige and damp sea breezes the furniture, sanitation and facades within a short time, supply.) - the beach is on foot in a few minutes easy ... to reach - could even directly by car on the route (free parking spaces), once you have a lot of 'luggage' with-) ! Great, small, good überblickbarer and very gently sloping sandy beach without the slightest kieselsteinchen! If you the beach to the right side walk, one comes to the plants' baja toscana 'and' baja ertrusca ', which has 3 children's pool in the sea are provided with, what can also be used. Negative: - the shallow pool was even both of our almost three-year program way too cold, so that we didn't use. The swimming pool itself appear in a very tidy state and regularly waited (measurements, cleaning etc.) caps seem here not obligatory. read hotel review

    Great great service, extremely friendly serving staff aaaaaber : And here comes our easter egg... We actually wanted to, our holidays really to be able to enjoy, full board. Luckily our broker here in Switzerland advised against! You could then still place decide, which go. - at the day of arrival we were in their own restaurant eat and it was really bad! A few of us found the antipasti still really good, but then was closed. With Italian food was nothing to do. The vegetables smelled after fish, the tortellini smelled fish, the meat reminded more of a somewhat used, the fish was guaranteed good, and the spaghetti with meerfrüchten gave tummy ache! The dessert? Terrible, not enjoyable. Each food in the autogrill on the way was better! Only plus point: mineral water and 3 wines (vino bianco, rosso and spumante) in any quantity otherwise. Oh; the penne were so la la, times apart from the olive oil wash... - breakfast; took some getting used to with sweet pastry, and typically Italian hard ' frischbrot ' ;-). Automatenkaffe: yuck! Industrial made salami and cheese: yuck yuck. Orange juice from the machine with co2 and plentiful preservatives: choke!

    If you are a property with a direct view of the sea wishes is in the wrong place here. - the complex is between a hardly busy sagging race separate beach and a railway line in the middle of by pine trees. - it is from the ss1 within 3 minutes and easy to find (under the railway by, and you're there). - after follonica to nearest supermarket ( conand ), where you can get everything you need, it is a 5-minute drive. Just the street after (not under the railways by) direction follonica one drives directly at the supermarket. Just right (70 meters) you will find a bank with atm, which all major credit and maestro cards. - during our stay the ' supermarcato ' on the complex I think once briefly open. Not really recommendable, there overpriced and no real choice. - on the complex 'baja ertrusca ' (next to beach entrance 100 meters on the wide dirt road to, then right) but there are two small shops, where you fresh bread, milk and other ( amongst others Italian speciaties) buy can. Both lead more toys and sandeli utensils (sorry, that was swiss German) than anything else. - also there is at the same place, as well as in the 'baja toscana' ristorante with fine pizzas (baja toscana). The complex 'baja toscana' is in the remaining with the key for the beach freely accessible. - another tip for a good supper is the swiss reka club golfo del sole. Reachable in 2 minutes by car to the turning area/ parking and then on foot about 100 meters. If you go further, one comes then automatically on the promenade toward follonica, with a long, public sandy beach ( umbrella not forget) - our complex also has a small bar for a nightcap or a haaammmmer 'cafe' in the morning before breakfast ( nothing for wimps what your filter coffee mourn want! )... :-) In Italy you drink coffee and no water! - follonica is not to and for itself really not worth seeing, but on the allfreitaglichen market ( behind the train station) you can find safe one or another bargain. Well hidden just a little to the right back opens after all the kleiderständen then a private market for salame, vino, olio etc. etc.

    - simply furnished, all necessary available. - kitchen could be a bit more pans and cooking utensils give away, if you like we (unintentional) cook had. But for pasta it is, for the pizza missing however the oven... :-) Tv not even turned on. - air conditioning in every room sepparat with a remote control start - respectively adjustable. ( we were in the low season, therefore no lärmemisionen of outside. But I can imagine, that in midsummer it really be unpleasant the noise forth, as before small house an own air conditioning system is available, which was quite noise.) - large green space behind the small house. Really great for playing children, which as quickly contact with other families manufacture.

  • Service
    5.0

    - staff, at front desk, in the restaurant, bar or gardener are all set up, friendly and accommodating. At the front desk there was someone who speaks German. Apart from that I was very happy with my knowledge of Italian. But where the language not help you, you could with hands and feet, and above all with a little understanding for the other culture communicate. Is attitude thing: when I stay at a foreign country go, I am me to adapt, and not vice versa. ;-) - laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer available ( laundry Euro 5-and tumble dryer for 3-but rather on the threshold) - free wi-fi-access at the bar. A ticket with identification and password ask, this is an hour long valid, but can in any case a new demand. - what annoyed us quite a bit, was the ' essiggeschmack ' the toilettenwäsche in the room! The next time we will definitely our own shower and bring towels :-) - only weekly change of the towels seem a little poor!?

  • Sport & Leisure
    5.0

    - low season no animations/ mini club, which we however also not used in the age, in which our kids are. - beach with small children top, as everything well in the overview. Could in the high season but rather tight Tip: the adjoining private beaches of two installations with their children -sea-pools can fully be used (naturally with exception the loungers and umbrella).

A well-kept complex outside of follonica. Very friendly staff and quite good, varied kitchen. Beautiful pool, hotel's own beach unfortunately very small and with sardinenbestuhlung. Bungalows are quite new, beautiful terrace, adequate beds ( except for the sofa bed). Cleanliness oK, but a problem with ants on the hotel. 70% Italian, 30% germans. read hotel review

    Varied buffet with much fish and seafood. Pasta always top 'al dente'. Breakfast bland, but that is in southern europe normal. The service comes sometimes with the replenishment of buffet not afterwards, but it was bearable. Coffee from the automat, awful. Top espresso for 1 euros at the adjacent bar.

    On the edge from pratoranieri, which in turn requires randstadtteil of follonica is. The hotel beach was clean, but small. 12 minutes on foot or minutes by car until the great sandy beach 'ponente', crystal clear water, flat sloping, fine sand. Excellent behind the house, but not really disturbing.

  • Room

    Small living room with small tubes -tv, only Italian program. A doppelbettschlafzimmer and A 2.-bedroom, sofa bed. The latter very soft. kühce quite spartan, but with our board uninteresting. Air conditioning modern and efficient. Beautiful terrace with gärtchen.

    Very friendly and hard-working. By the pool always lifeguard, and pleasing and unfortunately rarely in Italy - without bathing cap obligation. Foreign languages skills almost not available, partly a bit of English. Rooms were clean, if you however not better to do than dust to search it will certainly find.

    Pool 25 meters and a children's pool. Very clean. Soccer/tennis court, satisfactory condition. 9 -hole Midget golf. Animation for smaller children in italiano, very nice team.

It is small luxury hotel however you feel on the complex however. The complex is not new but in good condition. The beach is very beautiful. Only the change did not quite the 'control' - waiting time unfortunately over 3 hours until you in the bungalow could. read hotel review
