Reviewed 23 April 2010

Good base to Pisa and Florence. Good coffee at the bar. Nothing else.
Apartment very clean. The receptionist was rude. In our apartment smelled gas (there is gas heating) and the receptionist did not want us to replace the room. He said there is no free while the resort was empty (we were there off season). The next day and all night and the morning there was no hot water. Then it turned out, however, that there are rooms available and we can move. Unfortunately, nowhere was the hot water ...

We visited Marina di Pisa (2 adults and 2 children) during a 2 week self directed tour of Italy. The relaxing atmosphere of this seaside town was a pleasant, and much needed break for our 11 and 9 year old children who were tiring of the museums and churches. Admittedly, we were here in early April, and the town was "off-season", but there were several restaurants on the sea open, and a few shops in-town. We stayed at the Boboba II Villaggio hotel which was OK. The rate was only $60 USD per night. The sleeping arrangement for our 1 bedroom apartment was nice. There was a washer/dryer on premises, but it did cost about 12 Euro to wash and dry one load of clothes!! The restaurant at the hotel was very good! The restaurant prices were good, the house wine was great!! Good variety of oven-fired pizza, fish dishes, pasta dishes. I hear that this town gets very crowded during summer vacation. I am glad that we were there during the off-season to enjoy walks along the promenade by the sea (the "beach" is all large stones).

We stayed in January, so not much beach activity, and the place very quiet. Only paid €50 for 4 bed apartment on Venere, so a real bargain. Everything you need for a good holiday. Would imagine the place would get very busy and noisy in summer, full of families. We had a good time and would recommend it to anyone. Didn't get charged any surcharges or extras.

Boboba Il Villaggion was close to everything, very "Beach" style. Be wary of using the kitchen in the room, as there is a 25 Euro charge.

you need to get the bus from centros 2, come out the main entrance of the train station and cross the road infront (along the strip of shops) follow the signs for tickets and information and you will come to the bus stop, you can get tickets here for 1.80 each way. Pisa marina (what we saw of it) was lovely it takes about 30mins to get here and look out for the waterslide on your left. Be carefull for the charge of the kitchenette as they didnt tell us about this, not that we used it (very cheeky cost!) we didnt get chance to use the pool as we were only there for 1 night and went to the leaning tower which was great (costs 15euros)

If you are trying to decide whether or not to book this "hotel" you should first decide what you want from your stay. If you are looking for a place that offers a comfortable room to watch t.v. in bed or surf the net- this is not the place. But if you are looking for a clean place, with friendly staff or if you are looking for a place to keep your luggange while you go out and expolore (which is really what you SHOULD be doing instead of watching t.v. in bed!) then this might be a good choice.
Hardly what you might call a "hotel", Boboba rooms are more akin to small bachelore flats or summer cottage villas where you can keep groceries in the fridge and cook your own meals in a small kitchenette. Although, with the excellent food at the resaturant with great prices and freindly staff you'd hardly need to (honestly, the food at the restaurant was probably the best we had in Italy). The most glowing aspect about Boboba I have to offer is the friendliness of the staff. They too were probably the most friendly we encountered on our trip (and we travelled to MANY places in Italy during our stay).
As the pictures show, there is a pool (with a slide that's excellent for the kids), and an outdoor bar. During the summer season they apparently have shows each night (much like a Carribean all-inclusive resort might have), and there is ample (free) parking at the front. I read a review somewhere that said if you don't get back to the Villaggio by a certain time with your car they lock you out. But during our stay we were given a remote to open the gate. Maybe this is new?
There is wifi services available, but the room we had was "out of range". Instead we sat in the outdoor bar located next to the reception and our connection was fine. There is also a computer in the reception area that you can use if you do not have your own portable device.
There's no breakfast, but at 8am(?) there's a van that comes by behind the Villaggio with fresh baked breads and pastries. YUM!
Very close to the shoreline. Also close the The Leaning Tower of Pisa and quaint shopping. I would suggest that having a car also makes a big difference in deciding to stay here. If you are looking for a hussle bussle of a big city Marina della Pisa is not it. This is a sleepy seaside town. But if you have a car it's very close to the main attractions of Pisa, plus the drive in to the main area offers some picturesque views of the Tuscan countryside. And at the price this is a very reasonable place to stay.

We stayed here last October as a cheap last minute get away (booked through lastminute.com). Not the greatest place but it was well out of season and Marina di Pisa was very quiet, almost shut! Check in was easy enough with an English speaking receptionist. The accommodation was clean and tidy. The rooms do have paper thin walls though and you can hear everything your neighbours are doing above and to the sides of you, including moving furniture, having sex and arguing! The grounds are constantly being maintained and it is set in a beautiful location. The restaurant attached was OK and good value for money. Handy bus stop outside the hotel running regularly. Beach was just across the road. Marina di Pisa is we think a retirement town as there were a lot of old people and absolutely no night life (this could be because it was out of season). Supermarket is quite a walk so worth getting the bus back if you have heavy shopping.
