I stayed at the Panoramic for three nights on business - I'll leave other people to comment on family-friendliness of the beaches, I was there by myself. On the first day I had the nightmare journey from hell - a cancelled train meant a missed aeroplane and then there were no trains to Rimini; let's just say it was horrible, and when this was communicated to the staff they prepared a selection of cold meats, rolls and fruit so I had something when I arrived extremely late. I really, really appreciated this as it's not a service they usually offer. Before they brought it up to my room they called to check whether I wanted some wine as well, which I hadn't thought to order. Presentation was excellent and I was immediately struck by how helpful they were - not for the last time. I was so tired I didn't give a tip - I still feel bad about that.
The room itself was compact and perfectly fine. There was a TV I didn't use, a pretty much luxury bathroom, good shower and ample toiletries for my needs. Cleaning services were efficient every day. A kettle would have been good as I do like to be able to make tea and coffee - commonplace in some establishments, but maybe not an Italian thing as they don't have coffee in the same way we do elsewhere.
Breakfast was buffet style with toast, pastries, meats, fruits - something hot might have been nice but it was OK. Once again, the staff were welcoming.
In the evening - possibly just for our conference - there was complimentary wine and snacks, which was a nice touch. The lobby was comfortable and there was a good atmosphere - the staff were very relaxed (or so they appeared - I noticed the plates were kept full and nobody had to wait for their drinks so maybe 'relaxed' isn't right, they were working very hard).
On the last day I had some time to go and look into Rimini. The staff made sure I had a map, marked with the hotel and its address, and fixed me up with a taxi to the main street and instructions on where I'd find a taxi back. It looked as though it might rain so they offered an umbrella - all of this without being asked. They gave the driver his instructions so I didn't have to try my non-existent Italian. Later they organised a taxi to the station for me; once again they briefed the driver in Italian, told me the cab was on them and wished me "bon voyage" (the taxi driver also thanked me in French - I assume this is because I'm much better dressed than they expect English people to be!)
So I didn't see much of the seaside although I did notice play areas every five minutes for small children; the hotel and facilities were perfectly OK for my needs but above all I would recommend this staff to anyone. They were among the best I've stayed with.
