“Family Holiday to Viarregio”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Second stay at the Hotel Residence Esplanade. This Hotel is ideal for families, as it offers spacious rooms, with self catering facilities and the option of Hotel B&B and Meals. It really is the best of both worlds.

Great breakfast, friendly helpful staff. It is worthwhile paying for a room with a large balcony, so do check when booking, as it makes such a difference. Rooms cleaned daily and fresh towels given.

The Hotel is within a minutes walk to the blue flag beach. We recommend booking beach facilities separately, as their is a great range of beach facilities along the whole promenade, some with play parks, wonderful restaurants, changing facilities and pool. All great for a family holiday. We used the Bagno Florida, as the food was excellent and a lovely well maintained play park.

The bus for Pisa Airport stops at the corner of the road. If travelling from Pisa airport, we recommend using the bus, as the Hotel is so well located on the public transport route.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel, and will pay a 3rd visit with no hesitation.

As an added extra, do visit Pietrasanta about 10 minutes drive by taxi from the Hotel, and the restaurant Gatto Nero. Bliss.

Room Tip: Book a room with a large balcony on the 1st floor. Don't book the beach facilities with the Hot...

Really great hotel in great location, and the price was best of all. paid only 38 euros per night. no breakfast though... really nice interior, view was inside, but intersting aswell.... first were told 6 euro for parking for 24 hours, but then were told that was included and didnt have to pay, so was great :) they have a deal for the beach with other hotel, but that cost 25 euro. it was not hot enough so we didnt need it...

As there were 3 adults travelling we had an apartment, 1 bed and lounge with a. Sofa bed. Really clean and spacious Only downside was no sea view. A huge terrace with patio table and chairs also with the room. The hotel staff could not have been nicer and wifi in rooms is fast and free. Breakfast served in a lovely dining room, good choice but hot food not kept heated so scrambled egg was cold. Good value and a minute from the beach, hotel has parking for 6 euro a day.

One of the best hotels of the category. Comfortable suite, smiling reception staff providing very good service, good food all offered at a very decent rate. The only downside: Booked days all billed even if not all stayed! Highly recommended anyway.

Room Tip: Room front side.

We used Viareggio as a base for exploring Tuscany as it's close to Lucca and Pisa as well as being a resort in its own right. The Hotel Esplanade was a reasonably priced option so we were delighted to find ourselves upgraded to an apartment. So lots of space and comfort - with a balcony. The hotel was beautifully spacious, light and airy and had a lovely feel to it. It's located towards the north end of the many restaurants along the promenade, but a pleasant stroll down to the Marina past lots of expensive clothes shops. And we could park for free just round the corner from the hotel square - we'd expected a significant day rate for the car. Breakfast was very good, free wi-fi available (though they were having a few problems with it when we were there) and a very nice bar plus complimentary nibbles by reception throughout the day.

We rented three quad rooms to see what the differences were. There were no appreciable ones aside from price. Go for the cheapest one! Rooms were clean bur rather minimalistic. Dated beds and bedding in bedrooms, and sofa beds were not the most comfortable. Tile/linoleum flooring in the rooms. Definitely not luxurious, but a family beach hotel. We really were comfortable here though. The staff are top notch and we cannot say enough how genuinely friendly and helpful they were and all spoke excellent English. All of our quad rooms had some sort of outdoor balcony which was nice for the one smoker in our group.

Room Tip: If you require a quad room, go for the cheapest one. There are few differences in amenities, and al...

Very impressive and superb value for money. Our group had booked one double and two single rooms.
The double was a two roomed family suite which was newly refurbished. The only minor criticisms are that the shower cubicle is quite small and there was only one small chair on the balcony.
The singles also had double beds and balconies but were in a wing of the hotel awaiting decoration.
Breakfast was pretty good too. However, if you want bacon make sure you aren't too late. Once its gone - its gone!
If I'm ever in Viareggio again this is where I'll be staying

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the newly updated wing of the hotel. They are a little fresher
