We were disappointed in this hotel because they only had rooms with single beds and were informed upon arrival that we could push them together if we wanted to sleep together. The air conditioning did not work well either. We requested a 7:30 wake up call and were woken up at 1:30 in the morning instead.
This hotel is in a stunning location on the edge of a large park. You will need to get a taxi or hire a car to get to this hotel. (10 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from Pisa Central).
The staff speak basic Engish, so we had to use some sign language to communicate.
The hotel provides breakfast - coffee and a couple of dry croissants.
The hotel only caters for guests at the park. It has information about horse rides, etc. It doesnt have any information that an average tourist will need, map of Pisa, train times etc.
As the hotel was in a park, it was nice to get away from the maddness of Pisa.
My wife and I stayed in at the Boboba il Villaggio in Marina di Pisa for a nice early summer getaway and found it to be a tremendous value. Though probably considerably busier in the high season, we found the town to be quiet and relaxing in mid-May when we stayed there. Our room was clean and comfortable and had a lovely balcony. We kept expenses down by self-catering - there is a supermarket a few minutes down the road - though there is indeed a 25 Euro surcharge for use of the kitchenette. The pool had just opened when we were there, but the cool looking water slide was still closed. Too bad. In any case, Marina is a choice destination as it is far enough away from the big cities to allow for a relaxed beach vacation, but close enough to allow easy access to Pisa, Lucca, and Florence, if you so desire. A few logistical tips for others thinking about this hotel: to reach Boboba, take the bus into town from the airport and get off at the bus station (it's not well marked, but it's just a block or so past the central train station). You want route 10 (you queue up at Corsa 2) toward either Tirrenia or Livorno. It comes every 30 minutes or so. One-way tickets are 1.80, though you will notice that most locals tend not to pay. The trip takes about 30 minutes and you can get off right in front of the hotel (look for the water slide and the flags).
